Jan 25, 2023

I often get asked this question: "I will never be able to speak German fluently, what should I do?"

Learning a new language is not an easy task, and speaking the local language plays a big part in integrating in a new country. But not all hope is lost my friend! There are more ways you can make Germany feel like home, and improve your German as you go!

πŸ“ Get involved in local events and activities. Germany is known for its vibrant festivals and cultural events, so take advantage of them! Not only will you have a great time, but you'll also meet new people and learn more about German customs.

πŸ“Join a club or group. Whether it's a sports team, a hobby group, or a language exchange, joining a community of like-minded individuals will help you feel more connected to your new home.

πŸ“Embrace the local customs and traditions. From Oktoberfest to Christmas markets, there's so much to experience and enjoy in Germany. Don't be afraid to try new things and embrace the local way of life.

πŸ“Make German friends. This might take some time, but it's worth it. Germans are known for being reserved, but once you get to know them, they are warm and friendly.

πŸ“ A healthy connection to your culture. It is important to maintain your cultural identity and connection with your home country while living abroad. Staying in touch with family and friends, celebrating traditional holidays, or joining cultural groups or clubs will help you to feel grounded and connected to your roots while also embracing the new culture you are living in.

Remember, moving to a new country can be daunting, but with a positive attitude and willingness to learn, you can make Germany your new home. 🌟
