  2. The Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht is setting up an internal language school (Sprachenzentrum) and is looking for someone to run it. According to the ad, they would prefer an English teacher. Teaching degree not required, only MA in a relevant field.   It is a full-time position paid according to the TV-L (approximately 46,000 - 50,000 € / year to start) .   Application deadline May 5, 2018.   https://www.berlin.de/politik-verwaltung-buerger/stellenausschreibungen/detail.php/24772
  3. Since the installation date, 2 technicians came and still no internet. And I'm also struggling to find out what they are doing wrong since no contact with them is working in english. I'm also new in Berlin, I still got no german language and no german speaking friends to help in this case.   I have applied for a Vodafone DSL connection on 13/OCT after asking in their chat (in english) all the questions I had. A few days later they scheduled the installation to 2/NOV.   Here is what happened so far: 13 / OCT - I wen't to Vodafone website and while checking for products I found a chat option. There I was able to ask some questions I had about their product and contract and all the contact was in english. So I went to Check24.de and applied for a Vodafone DSL plan. A few days later I received the modem and was told that the connection date would be on 02 / NOV. 02 / NOV - The telecom technician comes, check the plugs and tell me that the connection is ok by displaying a big green "OK" in his gadget screen. He did not wait for me to test the internet before leaving and said I had to wait a few hours before providing the modem installation code in the fritz.box url. After waiting for many hours, every time I provided the modem installation code, I got the same error message giving a "timeout". I then start my attempts to speak with Vodafone about my connection problem: I try to email, call the hotline, post on their forum but never getting an answer that could help fixing the problem. Also, most of the times they simply ask to call the hotline, where (believe or not) no attendant speaks any english at all (I swear, I called it more than 20 times).08 / NOV - I had to travel abroad and they suddenly call me in english, making an appointment for another Telekom technician visit on 15/OCT. They also tell me they are sending 50 Gb Vodafone Mobile Wifi device.14 / NOV - I get the Vodafone Mobile Wifi on post office, activate it at 1pm and start using it. 15 / NOV - I get the second Telekom technician visit and he sais something was repaired on the street, but I have to wait for another technician to completely fix the problem. The same day, at exactly 5 pm, the Vodafone Mobile Wifi Gadget starts flashing the green traffic light and stops the Internet. I have tested the SIM card connected directly to my phone, but it does not show an internet signal (I've also walked on the streets to check if the signal problem was not just in my area).16 / NOV - Vodafone calls me in german, but at least it was easy to set another technician visit for 17/NOV.17 / NOV - Telekom technician comes at 19 clock, the building bell rings, I open it for him. And then he disappears. I'm not sure if he did something or if he just gave up because it was late. But the modem installation code problem still persist. 18 / NOV - I get a SMS from Vodafone asking me to call the hotline and schedule a new appointment. I tried so many times, but still haven't reached any english speaking attendant (even basic english). With one of them I simply played the google translator saying the protocol number and asking to schedule the new appointment to any day and any time and send me via SMS (as they did before). The attendant kinda told me "ok" for that, but so far I got no appointment.   I'm not sure if I persist trying to solve this problem or if I completely give up. But even about giving up, I don't know what to do as there is no english contact available for anything!   Anyone facing the same problem with them that can give me a light? I'm completing 20 days since the installation happened and still no internet.      
  4. I have a pile of about 90 English books I'm clearing out for spring.

  5. Since so many of us are in the English business, I thought it woudl be nice to have a place to share tips, tricks, links and stories related to teaching, translating, coaching, etc.   This is not the place to ask. "How do I get a job teaching English in Germany?".   I learned a new false friend: pathetisch   The CEO I was coaching wanted to end his start-up presentation with "Dare to be Pathetic!"

  12. Hi TTers,    I had been moderately active in Hamburg since moving to Germany, but after moving to Schleswig-Holstein a couple years ago I really fell off the radar (mostly due to a new baby and too much work). That said, I was wondering if there are any other native English speakers (or others that speak English) in or around Elmshorn/Tornisch/Uetersen area. Just looking for anyone interested in hanging out (starting a stammtisch, playing tennis, doing a movie or game night now-and-again, etc.). We have a 2.5 year-old daughter, but we can plan things with/without kids accordingly.  Anyway, let me know if you're interested.    Mike

These two comedians have dealt with tough situations in love life, thug life, high life, street life, married life, corporate life and cultural life but have now finally found some form of redemption in 'Joke Life'. It's this mockery of their lives that forges their uncanny alliance which creates this unique stand-up comedy show. Crappy late night dinners, cheap hotels, and complicated relationships are some of the key perks/punishments of living the 'Joke Life', all worth it as long as you guys are laughing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Starring~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ★★★★★★★★★★ Kirthy Iyer (IND) ★★★★★★★★★★★★ Born and raised in India, studied in Canada, and surviving in Germany" this international background makes Kirthy so special that even he wants to punch himself! However, after multiple black-eyes, Kirthy turned to stand-up comedy instead and not only has he been a crowd favourite on stage, he has also become the founder of the ever growing English comedy scene in Frankfurt. He has performed all over Germany, Poland, and the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival with having no difficulty whatever in keeping the audience in stitches. A comic who does irritable, cynical and brutally honest riffs about anything and everything from his life. When not ranting on stage, Kirthy spends the majority of his time in his recluse, drawing comics, animating, writing stories and occasionally answering to bowel movements. "A darkly comic undercurrent full of intelligent insights" - Nik Coppin "Kirthy Iyer is an extremely talented and unique voice on the comedy scene" - World Wide Comedy Kirthy Iyer ★★★★★★★★★★ James Rankin (AUS) ★★★★★★★★★★ James Rankin is an Australian stand-up comedian who is currently performing all over Europe. He left his hometown off the back of a successful run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, performing his hit show ‘Be A Man’ to thrilled audiences. James' brave and hilarious story-telling performance also earned him a television appearance as the feature-artist of the Australian television show ‘The KK Factor'. He also spent two years as a writer and presenter on the Australian comedy radio program ‘Retreating Laughs’. Having hit the stage on three different continents, James has now become a leading figure in the ever-expanding Berlin Comedy Scene, where he can be found performing, hosting and producing popular shows. ★★★★★ “His natural gift of finding comedy in real-life experiences is both captivating and hilarious.” J-Air 87.8FM "Hanging on his every word" weknowmelbourne.com.au “We couldn’t stop laughing, it was laugh-a-minute!” KK Factor (TV) April 2016 Rankin Comedy      
  22. Augsburg

    Howdy folks, I know Augsburg isn't Munich, but its close enough that  I wasnt sure whether to post here or in the South Bavaria forum so I am posting in both. Are there any Americans/Native English speakers else living in/near Augsburg? I moved here to work at the University and my partner and we have met very few people. Our German isn't great (yet), and we are looking for people to hang with, make music with, generally do fun stuff with. We are in our early 30s and moved here from Ireland in September.

  24. Hi guys. I have been living in Germany now for 4 years and now that working and study life is more or less stable I am hoping to start making some friends here, as I am worried I will start to annoy my girlfriend if I do not start socialising soon I am originally from England and came here to Germany as my partner is German and we wanted to make a life here together. I am a pretty quiet, slightly introverted person by nature but definitely not shy and (hopefully) a really good friend once I get to know people a little better. I am a programmer so I spend most of my day sitting in front of a computer screen so getting out and seeing some of this beautiful country I now find myself in would be great. When it comes to meeting people I have no special requests, it doesnt matter if you are male, female, English speaking or not (although my German is pretty terrible to be honest) I am interested in good conversation, meeting up for coffee, socialising etc. I live in Weinheim and work in Heidelberg so finding people in those places is more convenient but I don't mind other places that are close and can be easily gotten to by car   Anyway, I look forward to hearing from you soon!
  25. Hi ! Im looking for a native English speaker in Berlin for a translation.
