24 year old guy moving to lugano

I will be moving to lugano in september to work as an English tutor for a family. I am interested in finding someone to teach me Italian from a beginner level.

I am also looking for a reasonably priced gym to join. Additionally I am interested in meeting some new people as I will not know anyone.

Thankyou!

Hi Lukerecardo, welcome!

Myself and my girlfriend are Scottish (well im English but lived up north for most of my list) moved here a little over 18 months ago and are always looking to meet new folks, PM me on here if you want to grab a beer sometime, we're both 28 btw. I cant be much help on the Italian front im afraid, have picked up enough to get by but, as it happens, im too lazy to learn more! There are plenty of places that offer courses although they can be quite pricey.

Im not a gym person myself but I know people who go to Madex so try them - www.madex.ch.

Anyway, welcome and give me a PM if you wanna meet sometime.

Cheers
Anderw

Based on personal experience, the best way to learn Italian is to find a girlfriend who doesn't speak English (easy around here).

Would definitely be up for meeting up for a beer when I am there. Would be good to get to know some people that speak English there. Thanks for the link for the gym also. I will be coming to Lugano on 1st september I think. So once I am settled we can arrange to meet up, and talk about all things British!

Sounds good to me, just let me know you get here and get settled in, if you need help with anything/arent sure what to do with things (the swiss love a bit of paperwork!) let me know too.

Cheers
