  1. Brexit: The fallout

    7. Blame it on the EU. Maybe BoJo needs to read this excellent books about how to make good deals. I think it is called the Art of the Deal? 
  2. Language acquisition for 5/6 year old

    I am not a big supporter of placing children in front of tv but here I'd suggest to buy a few DVD ( or library) and let your  lill'un watch it. Reason is that in Kindergarten there are certain films/characters that all children do know and refer to. That way he picks up a little German and at least has an idea whats going in if he is beeing greeted by a töröö and will unterstand why so many kids here answer the question what noise an elephant makes with töröö. For a start let him watch a few Bob Builder or Caillou DVD he already knows in English now in German. Then checkout Benjamin Blümchen. Then maybe a few Conny DVDs. I also support the recommendation of putting him into sport. Kinderturnen, footie, whatever he likes. Gives him a chance to meet his classmates and pick up language en passant. 
  3. Er yes. Sorry there are some posters that get into fight easily. Sorry. Back to topic. Maybe you should also consider whether you want the kids in a public school or preferable keep them within an English curriculum (there is a St johns school), or may be an international school? These are the questions that will make a selection of places to live much easier. Munich North/East is considered slightly cheaper in housing but then its the wrong side of getting towards the mountains as they were depicted here. Holzkirchen seems to be very nice but since everyone knows this housing costs are darn high. Starnberg even worse but has an international school. Munich international school is outside North of Munich. Freising is often praised but I've never been living there. For further info just pm to avoid further off topic discussion.

  5. "Untranslatable" German words

    I'd go for 'never mind'  
  6. Only in America...

    In UK they are considered family dogs. The reason for their aggressive behaviour mostly is at the other end of the leash.
  7. What made you smile today?

    Err leaving Europe? Erm. How are you going to do this? 2 ships hooking up the British Island and steaming off to US? 
  8. First World Problems

    OMG OMG OMG do we need to send care packages? Only neutered beer left. OMG. Sorry.  Get well soon.
  9. What's got you flummoxed today?

    @AlexTr That was brilliant. Liked the deer but had to think first.

  11. Aufhebungsvereinbarung (Termination Contract) after resignation

    As far as I know an email is not acceptable. It needs to be a written letter stating your full name and address as well as your employers name and address. It needs to be dated and it needs to be hand signed. It should contain a date of termination. There are examples available out there in this wondrous thingamajig called www. Google's your friend. So they can't just give you a letter stating an end date since technically (legally) you did not resign.

    Maybe your email did not meet all legal requirements?
  13. Why is it so hard to buy a flat in Munich?

    What does the energy certificate state? Here it only says is available. Let them show it.
  14. Why is it so hard to buy a flat in Munich?

    Looks ok but is unrenovated from the 70s will come soon since there are new regulation regarding insulation. How about the heating? Have they already changed boiler according to the new regulations? 
  15. Why is it so hard to buy a flat in Munich?

    If its from '74 check the following. Was it built with bricks or concrete. In the 70s it was sort of fashion to build modern building with that new state of the art concrete and only later people realised the disadvantage of water seeping through where the concrete plates are set together. Especially in places with flat roofs. Also check whether the facade, the roof and the garage have already been renovated. Ive got an apartment from the 90s where the garage is beeing renovated, facade coming up. Roof fortunately still ok.
