Children in Switzerland walk to school alone. A typical Swiss school day contains some surprises compared to other countries and can be quite a revelation for expats new to Switzerland. In this episode, you'll get two different perspectives: what surprises expats in Switzerland about the schools and what a typical Swiss school day looks like (from someone who's actually been to one)! Plus, we discuss German language exams, and take a trip to a traditional Swiss sports festival.

Don't forget to join our Facebook group 'Switzerland for English speakers' to talk to other people who have moved to Switzerland, are planning to move here, or simply just love the country!
