Calling MathNut!!

Welcome to the Forum, Ann. You'll surely find lots of helpful stuff on here. Have a good look at the various Forums - especially perhaps the Stickies as there is a wealth of Information there.

The meet-ups will help you to feel more at home and if you fancy Irish Cheese, our very own grumpygrapefruit has a stall at the Market in Zürich Main Station on a Wednesday.

By the way, MathNut is our tame American, stars in her eyes, head filled with numbers, Moderator with a weakness for Ireland. She'll likely be along soon.

Welcome Ann!

There are a lot of good resources here so take a look around. As for the snow, it'll be here soon and then when then novelty wears off, it'll still be here. Get your winter tires now.

Re: Irish Girl!!

Hi Ann, and welcome to the EF & Zürich!!

About the snow, by this time last year we'd already had snow on the ground for about half a month ... but that was unusually early, apparently.

Now, about other things, the Social Events section is the best place to go! Off-Topic is also pretty good, though...

Re: Irish Girl!!

aragyl..... that was a very rough winter last year. I hadn't seen one like that since the early eighties.

As for snow this year, well yes hopefully but consider December or January, we raraely have a white Christmas.

Welcome to EF Ann

Re: Irish Girl!!

Hi all, my spouse and I are mulling an opportunity to move to Schaffhausen with my employer. We have two younger children (under 10) and we all speak only English. Do you think our lack of German or Swiss German speaking skills should be a huge factor in our decision? Are there others on here who speak only English? If so, what has your experience been like in Schaffhausen? It looks like a beautiful place and we are very excited about the opportunity. Thanks for any information you can share.

They all spoke only English when they arrived, but were forced to learn the local language by the local people


You can of course live there only speaking English, but things become more easy if you speak a bit of (swiss)german.
