If you speak the language, you never face problems

What is it like for an Indian woman to live in Germany? Good 😉 If you speak the language, you never face problems… The Indian diaspora and, important to me, Indian supermarkets and restaurants are almost everywhere. Before moving here some people warned me of racism and discrimination, but luckily I have...

Cheering language learners

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...
