Learning a language

The key to any country is the language. Though most Germans speak some English, you will not feel at home before you speak sufficiently German. It’s certainly not the easiest of languages, but nobody asks you to be perfect right from the beginning. Hundreds of thousands of immigrant have managed that task and you can do it to!

If you already speak some German, you will settle in quickly and the rest will follow. Everyday life is the best teacher. Still, there are few jobs were you needn’t to speak at least essential German from the start and it will definitely help to find an employer or apprenticeship.

Except from taking lessons you should try and practice as much as you can: Are there any German communities in your home country that you can visit? That might be of great help.
