Notice: As part of my PhD research on Genevan French, I will be spending several months in the canton of Geneva early in 2004. To this end, I need to find a room/studio for a minimum of 3 months from the end of January 2004 until (most likely) the beginning of May 2004. I would prefer to either be in Geneva itself or somewhere around the border with France voisine (Annemasse, St. Julien). I can pay up to CHF600 or €450 per calender month.
