Germany is Europe’s engine

I think that without Germany a strong European Union could not exist. Even the thought, that Germany would leave the EU, is unimaginable because in this case EU would fall apart. No other country has the power to break the European Union down. Germany is Europe’s engine.

It’s not enough to say I’m sorry

I think it’s very important that we strengthen mutual understanding in our society and that we really work together to make things better! The problem we’re facing right now is fundamentalism. In my opinion its roots are also socioeconomic. It has a lot to do with failed opportunities to foster...

Germans are my type of people

My name is Soheon Kim, I am 24 year old and I am from South Korea. I finished my Bachelor’s degree in one of the best universities there, with a major in Western history and minor in journalism. But even with such a notorious university and a couple of internships I was not...

Chanting for East Germany

Back in the 1980s I had pen pals in East Germany. I was studying German at the university and that was the only way for Soviet citizens to practice the language with native speakers. In 1989 the Soviet Union travelling regulations got looser and I finally had the possibility to...

Absolutely enriching

Positive aspects of multiculturalism stay more and more in the background and public debates concentrate predominantly on immigration, its economic advantages and disadvantages and movements against foreign influences. In the light of that, I think that one should talk more about multiculturalism in our society, especially about the advantages multiculturalism brings...

3 ways to gain control of intercultural clashes

Have you ever lived in a country where time and again you rubbed against the local way of living and behaving? Where you thought that you could never really feel at home? And where maybe you even experienced a bit of scorn against this country and its people? This is...

Apartment hunting: harder than finding a job

If you are an expat and want to feel in Germany like at home, then go outside and meet people. Try to meet local people – not only expats – and assimilate with them and their culture. This will help! However, something that I find really astounding here in Munich, is that finding an...

Ignore the differences

I am a war veteran and have seen genocides and other atrocities… This burdens me a lot and I simply do not understand why people are discriminated based on their origin, treated differently based on their culture or different eating habits or even different taste of music… I cannot comprehend...

Priceless experiences and reasons to stay

I’ve learned from my experience that the earlier you start taking an interest in the local culture and participating in local life, the easier the integration process is. In a way you have to let this new culture in, to be open to it. Maybe the integration process doesn’t necessarily...

Colorful cultural identities

My name is Christina Jankowski and I have a German and a Swiss passport. My background is a bit more colourful though, as my grandparents come from four different countries: France, Germany, Poland and Switzerland. Moreover, my boyfriend is Argentinian and we speak mostly Spanish together. Do you feel German?...

How far are you willing to go?

My name is Anastasia Valeeva and I’m a journalist from Russia. There are several reasons why I decided to move to Germany. I had already studied in Europe before. I visited the CFPJ (Centre de Formation et Perfectionnement des Journalistes) as an exchange student, while I was studying at the Moscow...

Searching for a babysitter

Why is everybody so excited about the World Cup? All the masquerade, watching games on the streets and in the pubs… Because it’s very much fun to celebrate together! It’s much more fun to watch the games together than to sit at home alone. Will you be costumed and cheering...

Allowed to be patriotic

Why is the World Cup so popular in Germany? Everybody seems to be in football fever. Because it’s one of the few moments where it’s OK to be patriotic in Germany…. We all know the history – Germans have difficult relations to being patriotic.

Well prepared

You are very well prepared for the game. Not really. I’m running late. I heard the 1:0 in the car. I couldn’t leave work earlier. And now every pub is full: it’s difficult to find a place to watch the game.
