Hello, Im an English speaking lurker on the forum who decided to register and have some conversations (so long as you dont mind english- my german isnt very good). Im interested in moving to Germany someday with my wife and figured I'd try to become aquainted with German mannerisms and so forth.

Im for a good conversation, should anyone care. Oh and Im from Philadelphia if that matters to anyone.

[quote = Rabi; 1293222] Welcome ...

Natrually we will vacation first, but I dont like the US, specifically Philadelphia and I've been to various places within the states. We are borderline communist now, entirely superficial and materialistic, and overloaded with crime and scumbags (Philadelphia is the murder capital of the US at the moment).

Im an idealistic person. Im not concerned with money (just need enough to live), and I think I can exploit a particular niche to make a living in Germany. I think the US is on the way down and the European Union is on the way up. I want to vacation an experience it for myself, but it cant possibly be worse than here.

So move somewhere else....and never in your life you visited every place in the US...

Im an idealistic person. Im not concerned with money (just need enough to live),
And right there starts the problem...we have a saying in Germany..too much to die..too little to live"....if you don't speak really good german and you're over 35,forget to get a nice Job.....

and I think I can exploit a particular niche to make a living in Germany.
I doubt it...but go for it...
I think the US is on the way down and the European Union is on the way up.
Not really.....

I want to vacation an experience it for myself, but it cant possibly be worse than here.
You can't it really experience it on a vacation,because you don't have to make a living there.....

And also you have to have a Visa for Germany and to get this you have to have basic german knowledge, so you can understand you boss and co-workers...

Don't get me wrong..I love my home country but I rather stay in the US than move back to Germany...maybe it's different in a couple years but not know....

And sorry about my english....I'm still learning...:redface:

Of course I havent visited EVERY place in the states, but I've been in the northeast, south, southeast, and midwest. I dont know how much more Im missing, but the theme is pretty much the same where ever I go. We've (my wife and I) have been enough places to know that we do not like this country.



And right there starts the problem...we have a saying in Germany..too much to die..too little to live"....if you don't speak really good german and you're over 35,forget to get a nice Job........
Im still young, but figure I may not move there for another 10 years or so, in which case I'll be over 35, but that gives me plenty of time to work on my German:biggrin:


I doubt it...but go for it...
Well, I'll only find out when I go over there- Im counting my preferred job field to be gaining popularity, even if the CDU is opposed to it (just as republicans are here).


Not really.....
Well, to rephrase- I think the US is falling apart, and if thats the case any other place is doing well (although I am aware of high unemployment rates in East Germany).

You can't it really experience it on a vacation,because you don't have to make a living there.....
This is true, but I love my job and Im quite good at it. If I like the place and the people then Im sold.



And also you have to have a Visa for Germany and to get this you have to have basic german knowledge, so you can understand you boss and co-workers...
I've been working on my German for the past few months, and there are local places which offer German lessons. Im quite eager to learn German, so I dont see this issue as being a problem.


Don't get me wrong..I love my home country but Id rather stay in the US than move back to Germany...maybe it's different in a couple years but not know....
Grass is always greener on the other side I suppose...

Im curious- what is it that you find so appealing about the US? What region do you live in that you like so much?

And sorry about my english....I'm still learning...:redface:
No apology needed- I think your english is quite good. Its certainly better than my German (I have no desire to attempt to write in German and butcher the language).

No, not at all.

Unfortunately, our forum rules are not available in English. But to sum up the key points: We don't accept web links for advertising purposes, we'd like everybody who posts quotes from another website to add the source link below the quote, and, of course, we would like everybody to treat each other with respect.

If you see a post in green, it is coming from one of the forum moderators and this usually means that one or more posts in a thread are not in compliance with the forum rules.

But please feel free to write in English. Although... maybe this forum will help you to improve your German? ;)

Other than that... Welcome to the Amerika Forum! :smile:

mmmhhhh...I live in the States since 2005 in GA...must be a different country

Im still young, but figure I may not move there for another 10 years or so, in which case I'll be over 35, but that gives me plenty of time to work on my German
But then you will have trouble to get a Job...by the way..what's your occupation...

Well, I'll only find out when I go over there- Im counting my preferred job field to be gaining popularity, even if the CDU is opposed to it (just as republicans are here).
As I mentioned...you never get the whole picture on a vacation and in 10+Years CDU is ruling again...;)

Well, to rephrase- I think the US is falling apart, and if thats the case any other place is doing well (although I am aware of high unemployment rates in East Germany).
Germany is doing well :confused::eek:... umemployment in the east :eek:..by the way....the east doesn't exist anymore.....:cheer:it's all Germany (unfortunately) and if I'm not wrong this little Country has as much unemployed people like the US....approx 3 Millions....

This is true, but I love my job and Im quite good at it. If I like the place and the people then Im sold.
You know that the german trainingsystem is better than the one in the US.....and about the people....I don't wanna talk about it...:redface:

I've been working on my German for the past few months, and there are local places which offer German lessons. Im quite eager to learn German, so I dont see this issue as being a problem.
German is one of difficult languages on earth...and if you so eager to learn why are you writing in English..:confused:;)

Grass is always greener on the other side I suppose...
Year...off course... but not in Germany...;)

Im curious- what is it that you find so appealing about the US? What region do you live in that you like so much?
We made 10 years in a row vacation in the US..and we liked it very much but it was never our intention to move or even live in the US....but kismet had other ideas and then my husband was in the right place at the right time and his Company in Germany, which has a branch in the US, offered him a job....and so we moved to Georgia... but after all I know now, I never would go in a foreign Country without a permanent job...it doesn't work....

No apology needed- I think your english is quite good. Its certainly better than my German (I have no desire to attempt to write in German and butcher the language).
Thx... and I can understand that, but if you want to have a chance in Germany you have bite the bullet and butcher the language...:laugh:

How about German lessons at a College/University?

I'm sure you will like Germany. Are you planning to take a vacation anytime soon? I haven't been to Germany in almost 5 years and really should start making some plans for a visit.

It all depends. When work starts to pick up we'll be able to start saving some money for a visit. I know Germany will be a little expensive, but both of us are very excited. We're practicing our German (albeit rather lazy lately) but Im told that everyone I meet will want to speak english so as to practice (just as I'd like to speak German to practice!).
