  1. 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!

  17. 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 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 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.

She’s 84 years old and the only thing that frightens her is her own reflection. She’s feisty though and can tell some tales about dating octogenarians, what it’s like being the oldest stand up in the business (RIP Joan Rivers).

Enjoy comedy at its naked best in this 50 minute travesty of song and dance featuring Lynn Ruth Miller. This is musical comedy at its worst proving that even though your body parts drop to your ankles, they still can move with enough zest raise an eyebrow if nothing else Lynn Ruth Miller had been remodeling facts since she bloomed so to speak, 78 years ago. Once she began presenting her prevarications to an audience larger than her three dogs, she met with amazing success.She hit the headlines in Edinburgh in August 2005 when she jumped out of a cake (almost) and removed her clothes (not quite) on every stage that would have her. Her fame spread when she threw her underwear at the audience at the Carleton Hotel that same year. In 2006, she became a legend: a show stealer and scene blocker with enough teeth left to smile wrapping her eager fans in spandex and putting wigs on the bald heads in the group. In 2008, she taught the world that the older you are, the better you get.She was featured in The London Times and won Best of the Brighton Festival with this off-key cabaret show that glorifies even older age, reveling in the disasters it brings to the human form and the feminine mystique. In 2014 she won the TOA&ST award for best cabaret at The Edinburgh Festival , In 2015, she starred in the Bristol Burlesque Festival and in 2016 was featured May 14 in the London Burlesque Festival where they invited her back for ehir encore performance.What they are saying:Lynn Ruth Miller is a true original, a unique and vivacious artist - writer, raconteur, singer, burlesque performer, satirist and comic. She appeared several times at the late-night cabaret, the Midnight Carousel, and never failed to bring the house down. She is inspiration to younger and less energetic artists like me. ~ Mark Mc Innes Edinburgh 2006With the modesty of youth gone, she grapples life’s dilemmas head on, and with a song. Based on her own colorful experiences, her audience are taught self help cures for impotence, incontinence, and how to enjoy old age. ~ MusicalTheaterMatters, 2008.This show is an act of belated rebellion against the invisibility of older people, deriding the nursing-home mentality and celebrating the joys of Spandex and sparkle. Any stand-up, though providing her with this definite point of view, now plays second fiddle to the set-piece song-and- dance numbers. ~ Steve Bennett, Chortle, 2009 ★★★★★ ADVANCED TICKETS ★★★★★Advanced tickets : Bookings : Tickets :★★★★★ THE VENUE ★★★★★Bar 1820, Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße 4110178 Berlin, (Belushi's basement underground club)

  24. I am an American ESL teacher and copy-editor based in the Netherlands. Having previously lived in Munich and having a basic command of German, I hope to offer online English courses for audiences based in Bavaria. My English teaching experience includes teaching English to children, young adults, and business professionals. My main focus has included conversational English, grammar, business English, as well as preparation for the TOEFL, IELTS, and the Advanced Cambridge C1 (CAE) Exams. I think of myself as an extremely organised and efficient person in terms of documentation, deadlines, and time management. As an ESL teacher, I always come prepared with a class outline that tries to set realistic goals for the individual student within the scope of that class. I believe that organisation is key to efficient ESL education. In terms of my mindset as a teacher, I can confidently say that I am a good motivator, while extremely patient and persistent. Furthermore, I aim at inspiring my students by bringing everyday examples into the classroom, specifically related to their age-group, interests, or goals. Therefore, English does not seem far removed from their own, individual lives and they can incorporate it into their personal vocabularies easier and more efficiently.  In the future, I hope to gain as much experience as possible in online teaching, as I am specifically interested in how digital realms inform every day practices and the humanities, such as linguistics and ESL education. I would further like to enhance my portfolio as an English teacher by teaching ESL students from various international backgrounds, as I find it a fascinating cultural experience.   For further information or a copy of my CV, please refer to the email address below.  Hope to hear from you soon!

  25. Hi Expats!   Bremen will be having a new theatre. The Bremen English Theatre, or BET, is celebrating its debut this late October. Its prelude touches a relevant and current topic: the use of military drones. The powerful, touching and necessary solo-drama GROUNDED, by George Brant, will be the very first performance of the Bremen English Theatre and is taking place in close cooperation with the AMS! -Impro Theater.    The Play Seamlessly blending the personal and the political, GROUNDED tells the story of a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. On returning from maternity leave, she’s co-opted into “the chair force” as a reluctant drone operator. “I stare at grey,” she says glumly; 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Repurposed to flying remote-controlled drones in the Middle East from an air-conditioned trailer near Vegas, the Pilot struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night. The play delivers a ferocious climax, as the pilot’s state of mind unravels. A tour de force play for one actress, GROUNDED flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence, targeting our assumptions about war, family, and the power of storytelling.   The Team: The US-american actress, director, choreographer, author and now BET-founder, Linnea George, leads this exciting solo-show in the role of the pilot. Guided by Markus Herlyn, a director inspired by this long-term education with outstanding teachers, mostly from Russia. This truly international team is complemented with Aidan Boyle, an Irish sound and light designer and Maria Juliana Diaz, a Colombian production and marketing manager. The US-american author George Brant supports us from the distance, from the U.S.   Most important: Opening of the Bremen English Theatre Powerful and relevant Drama GROUNDED (One-Woman-Show) In cooperation with AMS!-Impro Theater  Five performances end October / begin November @AMS!-Impro Theater (Fehrfeld 26, 28203, Bremen) |
