  1. What made you laugh today?

  2. Why are you happy today?

    I got engaged on Thursday at Rock am Ring. Going to buy rings today (got back from the festival yesterday). Never been this happy before.
  3. German practice

    That's a pity.  I just keep answering in German or pretend I don't understand English. I can be just as hard-headed as the Germans.  I don't remember the last time I spoke anything other than German.
  4. German practice

      I'm not here to answer the question, as I only practise my German with native speakers. I'm just curious why you find it hard? I find it to be the best practise cause if I make a mistake, they can tell me what the correct way to say it is. People who are still learning German won't pick up on the small grammar issues.
  5. First Betriebskostenabrechnung

    Hi, I am reviving this topic in hopes that someone could assist: I have received my first Betriebskostenabrechnung for an apartment where I have moved out. The landlord kept 250€ for the Betriebskosten, since this hadn't been calculated at this point. I have proof that he kept this money and that it was towards the Betriebskosten.   Yesterday I received a letter demanding I pay 230€ (not taking into account the 250€ the landlord had kept) within 14 days.   I thoguht that the money he kept for the Betriebskosten would be used towards the Betriebskosten.   We have contacted him, but he has a history of being horrible with replies and phone calls. I don't want to get a bad Schufa because of this, but I also don't want to pay almost 500€ for a 230€ account.   Anyone with experience with things like this?

  11. Company employed with invalid permit and fired afterward

      For a moment I thought "Are you a specialty cook" was an insult  Thank you for taking the time and correcting me. I am sure this information will help others who falsely believe the same thing.
  12. Company employed with invalid permit and fired afterward

      I thought I cannot apply for a new visa without going back to South Africa. I am restricted to my job and my position. And I cannot apply for an entry visa from Germany. I thought when the Aufenthaltstitel becomes invalid, that I no longer have a valid permit, and since I wouldn't have a valid visa to fall back on that I would need to leave.   If this is not true, then sorry about wrong information. If what I was thinking is wrong, then that's a bit of a relief. I like backup plans and right now there is no backup plan if the current job doesn't pan out.
  13. Company employed with invalid permit and fired afterward

      Aufenthaltstitel have restrictions. I, for example, cannot work in another role or at a different company than my current company. If I wanted to find a new job, or even to change my job title, I would need to go back to South Africa and start the process from scratch.
