Hi Jules.
Welcome to the forum.
Unfortunately I don't think any of us will be much help to you in answering your questions as everyone on this forum lives in the South.

Regards
Veronica

Hi all, I am Jenny from Hong Kong, currently living in Germany and considering a move to Cyprus Limassol if I get a job offer from the company there. Hope it is going to work out.

Hello I am Elizabeth, the wife of Zach, known as Zach21uk on here. I am from Florida, USA. I am a student hoping to learn Cypriot Greek well and tutor kids possibly including Cypriot children practicing English and possibly other people. I'd be glad to meet other Americans because I am shy and I have communication issues with the majority of people from the UK. I have been here since the beginning of October and I love the people here, they are really accepting and very friendly.

Hello Elizabeth - perhaps you could enlighten us folk from the UK regarding your communication issues?

We have made so many friends from attending the Expat bi-monthly meetings it would be a shame for you to miss out meeting some very friendly and helpful people just because of their nationality.

Welcome to the forum Elizabeth.
I always thought Americans spoke the same language as us (well sort of lol)
We have a Hungarian couple who have no problems communicating so I fail to see why an American would find it hard. Anyway you would be with your new husband so you should be fine.

Must agree with Elisabeth that a lot of English dialects are very hard to understand. Was the same in Germany with German dialects

I would never miss out on meeting people just based on where they're from. It's not really the way they talk.. although I've had a few issues with certain words I don't understood. It's just the sense of humor, way of saying things, and sarcasm are different from what I'm used. When someone from the UK says something sarcastically I usually get really awkward because I'm not sure if it's sarcasm or not. It's just a realm of unknowns whenever I speak to them. I'm living here so eventually I'll grow used to all these things hopefully.

Welcome to the forum
Greetings to all,

I am Rex from the Midwest/USA (Don't hold that against me now). I am a semi-retired C.A.D. Technician and I am very interested in Cyprus as a possible retirement destination. I am a Sun worshiper and an avid cyclist. I have a plethora of questions about the Cyprus economy, lifestyle and cost of living.
