Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've had a number of meetings over in Geneva (I live 4+ hrs East), and have gotten to know a number of people there. Here's some of  I've heard from them: that about 20% of the population in Geneva speaks English, and with the UN and numerous NGOs, there's a lot of people coming and going...which is good and bad...good for business, maybe not so good in getting to know people (who are expats, anyway, as they leave soon). There are Swiss schools and lots of other private schools to choose from for your son, and the schools are good. Geneva is a pretty town...I particularly like the old town. The main town of Geneva is quite expensive, and can be challenging to find housing in...but if you look in between Geneva & Lausanne, there are lots of towns that have plenty of housing and better prices. And I have been told numerous times that I could have found work much quicker here in Switzerland if I lived in Geneva, because there are so many people who speak English...and I definitely think you can find/create work there. Good luck! I hope this works out for you!
