Hello All!

 

I'm Tessa, and I'll be teaching at the international school in August and arriving from Melbourne, Australia hopefully before then! (if nothing else but to get over jetlag before school starts!) I would love to hear from fellow English-speakers (althoguh I do speak German - and it will improve when I arrive, I promse) about life in the home of the coffee bean and the book.

Hi all,

if any of the Leipzig newbies want to catch up for a beer or are interested in local advice, give me a shout.

Don't worry, I'm no English language groupie looking desperately to converse in English. Having lived long enough abroad myself I'm just willing spill local intel and help people accomodate...

cheers

Hallo all.

 

I am a 26 year old male who has just moved to Leipzig to start volunteer work for a year. I am looking for people who are currently living in Leipzig into music, films, walking / hiking who might like to meet up for a drink and maybe go to some gigs or walks? Also play Table tennis and perhaps some Badminton / Squash if anyone is up for it?

Hello everyone.

 

I'm new to the Leipzig area and would love to make some new acquaintances. I just moved here from Washington DC to be with the love of my life, a native Leipzig resident. She hasn't been in the city in two years so we could both use some new connections.

Hi Matt here from OZ.

 

new to this forum. been in leipzig for 8 months. i was already fluent in german before i came over here but i do miss talking in english and having people around who's idea of a good night out is not to sit around drinking, staring and nodding at each other for 3 hours and then go to a night club that plays horrible elctro techno garbage all night long.

I would love to hear some stories about everyone's relocation here. What they do now for fun? for work? what they think of the city and area in general.

I am English and I moved here in May 2008. Loving the city so far and the people are very friendly. The weather is pretty extreme but I´l get over it haha. I remember arriving in about 30 degrees C sun and a few weeks ago was minus 30 degrees. Crazy crazy. The nightlife is great also - http://www.schwarzes-leipzig.info/portal.php is a good website to find out what´s on.

Hi everyone, I arrived in Leipzig a few weeks ago and will be here until the end of the year. So far I know ONE non-colleague in Leipzig, so it would be nice to meet some other people, either English or German-speakers. I'd also be interested in tips on good cafes etc to chill out in at the weekends - I'm more of a daytime person than a night owl. Having said that, I'm happy to meet up at the pub of an evening...

Hi, I'm moving to Leipzig towards the end of the month (starting work on 5th or 12th May) is there a Curry Night in Leipzig? I found 1 Indian restaurant there a few years ago.

Hi

 

I'll be joining you all in the next 2 weeks and staying for a few years! I'm from the UK and single.

 

I've been in Leipzig a few times, but would really appreciate some help settling in and finding my way. The next couple of weeks will be manic for me, as I try to find an apartment!

 

So glad you have a Starbucks now! Where do you like to go for coffee/beer/culture/sport/swimming/outdoors etc?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

NG
