Get a job in Germany – where most activities are precursors to drinking | Angelika's German Magazine | Scoop.it
Don't hang around with other expats too much and also try to learn the language. It is nice to know people from home, but the best way of settling is to get stuck in with the locals. If you show that you are trying to learn the language and are willing to join in with their (sometimes strange) local traditions, then you'll generally be greeted with warmth and friendliness.

These are great insights for functional applications within language learning which can be applied in your teaching and learning environments.

Natalia Aleynikova's curator insight, November 6, 11:37 PM

Learning #languages is an essential part of a modern lifestyle. Even if you are not a #linguist, knowing a foreign language can become a real asset for your #business and career. Professional language learners give you some advice how to make the learning process easier and much more effective.

Ivo Nový's curator insight, November 22, 12:42 AM

One of the most common barriers to conversing in a new language is the fear of making mistakes. So, don't worry about making mistakes. Native speakers are like doting parents: any attempt from you to communicate in their language is objective proof that you are a gifted genius. They’ll appreciate your effort and even help you.
