Before signing up
- Expat ? Local ? What is it about ?
The main aim of adoptanexpat.ch is to put two kinds of people together: those who are born or perfectly integrated here and those who seek this integration. It doesn’t matter weather you are born here or not, a migrant, an expat, a glocal, a refugee… this project is open to anybody who is open-minded, motivated and wants do discover and share this city (and the people living here)!
- I don’t speak French – can I still get in touch with locals?
Of course! You can even search for other members according to the languages they speak. But don’t let it be your only criteria – sometimes the best way to learn French is to be forced to do it!
The signing up process
- You can count on me! Where do I sign?
- What information do I have to provide about myself?
The languages you speak, the activities you would like to share – and a small bio where you can put whatever you think is pertinent !
- I have created my profile – what are the next steps ?
For now, our admins verify the accounts before putting them online – you will get an e-mail when the verification process is complete. Then, go to « Let’s find a friend », find a local, write him or her and meet for a cup of coffee!
- Who will be able to see the information I provide?
Only the other members of the community and the admins.
- What about security?
If your encounter does not suit our community guidelines, please write as as soon as possible – that is the only way to prevent other users from bad experiences! We will check every reported account.
