  1. Brexit: The fallout

    I'm in Ireland at the moment and everyone I've spoken to is full of praise for Polish workers. They find them hard working, friendly  and family oriented. They are doing jobs that are needed and seem to be blending into the fabric of society here very well. 
  2. The English Teacher's Corner

    "Should of" instead of "should have" It's often written by native speakers, but it's just wrong, know your language people! 
  3. Brexit: The fallout

    If you're from Dublin, why does your nationality say British?
  4. Does anyone know where 2B is?  He hasn't logged in since May and, although I know he does this sometimes, it's been a long time now.
  5. Complete FAIL

    No, I’ve never done that, but once, after giving a half day seminar, when the participants had left, I sat down and stretched my legs out, only to see that I had 2 completely different shoes on. It’s silly, but it can happen.
  6. @RosieF, although I can't say too much about the rail traffic at the exact location of the apartment, I can tell you that it's a nice part of Frankfurt.  There are a lot of amenities around, supermarkets, public transport, etc. Many of the foreign embassies are also based around there, which adds a bit of style as in well-kept older buildings. I've always found that area has a good vibe, you could certainly do a lot worse.
  7. The OP doesn't specify if the train lines are actually for trains or for trams. Both can be noisy, but they are different. An actual location would give us all a better idea. 
  8. I absolutely understand what you mean Rob, but the viewing of the apartment would have been for an hour at most, and during the day. What about nights and weekends, and in summer when the windows are open. It's really something to think about, it may be fine, but if someone is sensitive to noise, that could be a problem. 
  9. Business compliance: gifts from suppliers

    I was working in Siemens when that all kicked off, it was quite a scandal at the time and it's the reason Compliance is such a big issue today. 
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    Nobody knows what will happen, how can they, this situation has never happened before. There are no links, only guesses.
  11. I was thinking the same thing, I don't think that's a long commute into any major city these days!
  12. What's got you flummoxed today?

    I renewed my Irish passport a couple of months ago.  It was all done online, the photo was taken with my mobile, (there are instructions on how to do this) and my new passport arrived here within 5 days, I was impressed.
  13. Brexit: The fallout

    The "Irish question", as you call it, never went away, some people just chose to ignore it.
  14. Brexit: The fallout

    At least you've had a break from it arunadasi, we've been putting up with this the whole time!
  15. Defendant Covers Face

    I've often seen Google cars in and around Frankfurt, it seems to be a growing trend at the moment, and the more people see them, the more acceptable and normal they become
