Hi all

I'm Irish and moved to Basel 2 months ago with my Spanish partner. We moved as he got a job here although I am not working yet. At the moment I'm trying to enjoy getting to know the area before I hopefully get a job. All going ok so far!

Re: Hi all

Hello

welcome to forum and .... also to Switzerland.

What are you planning for your free time, I think the best thing that you can do is start learning language (yes German or swiss german).
This will increase your chances of integration and finding a job.

have fun

Hi

I'm going to German classes everyday so it's giving me plenty to do. Have also met some people in the classe so spend time with them exploring the area.

Having fun so far!

Re: Hi all

Hey,

Welcome to Basel. I'm sure you'll have no trouble fitting in the irish community is always expanding

Goodluck with the job hunt and off course learning german. Depending on what you want to do there are some big international companies that use english as the working lingo. But probably best, while you have the motivation to pick up some german
