I live in Canada. I was in Germany for work at one point, not a bad place. French would be an asset.
I'll check Meetup for which groups are popping and learn a few phrases then head to learn with them.
where in Germany? berlin? frankfurt? munich?
better to learn one of those other languages.
germany ain't all that.
Expensive as hell Munich.
I'll test em out and see what fits. Mandarin would bet most sensible since I know Japanese.
Which languages are you working on?
It's the part that matters.
Q1. how long have you lived in germany breh?
Q2. how much german can you speak.
for every foreigner:
"Germany ranked as ‘worst country in world’ for essential expat needsInternationals who move to Germany are happy in the workplace but have delivered a crushing verdict on how hard it is to find a home and settle into the society around them, a new survey shows."
high conformist country
low salaries - post hartz 4 reforms
low in new tech / new industries
Why are they seeking to buy homes ? It's Germany not some Anglo mortgage obsessed country.
Conformity is part of European culture.
Racism started in Europe - you'll survive a police arrest unlike the U.S.
There are enough immigrant communities to sidestep Germans unless you're in Munich or some sh*t.
Low salaries ? In tech/engineering ?
Low variety ? Of what ? Just fly to Eastern Europe or the Nordic countries for women plus there are hot Turkish women there.
