Not everyone can work in Germany

If you want to make it in Germany then certain conditions must be met before you can work in Germany. Which they are, depends among others on where you are from.

There are differences if, for example, you are a citizen of the European Union, a citizen of the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland or you are from a third-country.

You can also get further help on this topic from the BAMF (Federal Office for Migration and Refugees).

If you need more information about the income in Germany you could also visit iamexpat.de.

However I can give you some advice:

If you intend to move to Germany and work in Germany, then you should be able to speak German before you come. Please note that you cannot learn German overnight. It takes time. And being able to speak German is almost always the requirement to find a well-paid job.

With my learning technique and my lessons, I can help you learn to speak German very well.

The biggest challenge every beginner faces

The problem with beginners is that they want to see very quick progress.

Think of when you start hitting the gym. How long do you expect to work out before you see results?

And how long is it before you actually see the results?

Look at this excerpt from US News Health:

In a perfect world, weight loss, or, more specifically, fat loss, would be instantaneous. But that's not how the human body works.

Instead, everything from your hormones to neurologic system and signals adapt to every little change in your diet and exercise

Why I’m I saying this?

Because it’s the same in learning German. And when it takes too long, you start to get weary.

Learning everyday ceases to be fun. It becomes a chore. And because the brain works to conserve energy, it sends signals to the body to deprive energy for learning and divert it to a less intense activity.

Otherwise why do you ‘feel’ like watching a quick video first and then get back to your lesson? After all, the video is just 3 minutes, isn’t it?

Only to find yourself down to six videos half an hour later, and because time is up you put off the lesson until the next day.

And if you have a daily checklist like me, it will probably look like this by the end of the week:
