    Hi, and thanks for the green blobbage. There are many things I prefer about the UK system, but the huge variety of schools, CofE, Catholic, academies, Muslim, Creationists- and the fraudulent behaviour of many parents to fight for places, is so destructive. I am very glad CH is fighting going the same route. Cheers.

    Thanks for the rep! And you're so right about shoveling snow, but what else are men good for

    Thanks for the rep! Was so excited when I saw the post about the book. It's a bit sad but I like it a lot.

    I can understand why some Swiss would feel sensitive about English speakers moving into their country and not trying to learn the native language. Some people in my country freak out whenever they see signs posted in English and Spanish. From the Swiss point of view, English is Spanish. That's part of the reason why I haven't joined in the chorus of "Rule Brittania." While you're in Switzerland---and I realize you don't have time for lessons---learning to say a few polite phrases in German or French might help grease the skids. "Please", "sorry", and "thank you" can go a long way.

    One more thing---Teverus DOES have a good point. While I can provide EFers with an insight as to how things are in America, the other posters who actually live (and some of which were born) in CH can give you more practical advice about living and working in Switzerland than I can. If you don't burn your bridges, this forum can be a lot of help.
