Goodbye London, Hello....Nyon

Hi all

My wife and I are moving to Nyon this Sunday, and we're really looking forward to it. We've visited the area many times before as my wife went to University in Geneva.

I've been taking a few French lessons before arriving, and so I'm sure I'll be put firmly in my place as to my appalling pronounciation and grammar!

I look forward to becoming an active member of this forum and the local community

Thanks all

I'll reserve judgement on the Geneva vs Lausanne debate, although its fair to say we liked both enough to live somewhere in the middle!!

Welcome to CH and EF!

Since there is already an International Women's Club of Nyon, The Pirat Club and the Moustache Club, we can form Appalling-French-Speaking Foreigner Club of Nyon. Cool!
