German practice in Basel

Me and My friend are thinking to create a small group to practice German in Basel area.
We both are in A1-A2 level and we found hard to have opportunities to practice the language.
We are especially looking forward to meet people who speaks German.
If you would like to join us, please kindly PM me.
In addition, we can teach English, Spanish and Japanese in return

Re: German practice in Basel

Hey all,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but you all seem pretty nice, so here goes:

I'm currently a grad. student in education in Hawaii. In a year and 2 months, I'll have a master's in teaching (secondary English). My wife and I have a dream to live in Switzerland...specifically Basel. We've never even been to Europe, but love traveling, languages, and culture. We've also spent a lot of time in Japan (she's Japanese), so we're very comfortable living in countries other than our own. We want to make this dream a reality, so we're both studying Pimsleur German. Will that work for getting around Switzerland? There is also a Pimsleur Swiss German, but it's only like 10 lessons vs. the 90 for the more "standardized" German.

Also, any other enlightening info on life in Switzerland and Basel would be great! Is it hard getting a teaching job in Basel? Would love to work at the international school or even a Swiss school for that matter, though that would have to wait for the language skills to improve.
