Before moving to Germany, I had lived in other countries where I didn’t speak the language. I didn’t really feel part of the community and – as an expat – I missed out on many of the great opportunities offered.
When I then moved to Germany, I wanted to do things differently and learn the language as quickly as possible.
I work as a senior product manager and I like things to be structured and logical. I want to see results fast and do things simultaneously. Whilst learning with smarterGerman my husband and I were also looking for an apartment and settling into our new jobs. I’d recommend to everyone to budget at least 3 to 4 hours daily to reach the aim within the intended time frame.
