Hello, I'm Rose and new to Lausanne, say hello :)

21, from Hertfordshire, England, moved here just over 3 weeks ago.
Just finished my English degree in Nottingham and fancied a year of something totally different before `real life'..so here I am, au pairing in Lausanne!Totally alone (and am learning, but currently don't speak the language)!Would love to hear from anyone in Switzerland

Re: Hello, I'm Rose and new to Lausanne, say hello :)

You never know. So far so good. I haven't really been here long enough to know if I can just tolerate it here, mostly like it, or really love it... Well, I've met the people who work on the same floor as me. They don't let us sciency folk out of the lab much. They're afraid we'll scare the locals... I live in an apartment, on a bus line, between work and fun.

Welcome to Switz. I don't speak the language yet either and what works best for me so far, is just to smiling and nodding.

Re: Hello, I'm Rose and new to Lausanne, say hello :)

Fixed that for you. AFAIK this country is not referred to as Switz, Swiss, Swissie, etc.

And yes, welcome to Rose. Enjoy your stay in the land of chocolate and cheese.

Re: Hello, I'm Rose and new to Lausanne, say hello :)

Welcome to beautiful Lausanne, Rose! If you haven't done it yet be sure to take a cruise on the Lake in the coming weeks as the vineyards will be turning gorgeous autumn colours soon. The "boucle Ouchy-Montreux/Château de Chillon" is the best route.
