Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

My hubby used to live and work in Geneva. His work environment (CERN) was multilingual, so I don't know about managing in English in other kinds of jobs. But he says it was quite easy to get along in English at first, but learning French pretty soon became a priority.  

He really enjoyed the proximity to the mountains: great bicycling, trekking, and climbing just 'round the corner. What he did not like that much: the prices. It's an expensive city. Don't know how expensive in comparison to London, though.

You have a normal feeling for a moment, then it passes. --More--
