    Three key factors for making friends in Germany (Nadja from Germany)

    Nadja Todt was born and raised in Germany, but spent 11 years abroad. She describes herself as a global citizen, change-maker, international experience expert, community connector and mentor, and a German and English language consultant.

    Nadja offers a program called "45 Days to Meaningful Friendships and Connections", and so I asked her to come on the podcast and discuss her insights. Her discussion centers around the what she sees as three central topics of making friendships: knowing yourself, being aware of your communication style, and making deeper connections.

jugendwort des jahres

es ist mittwoch meine kerle ist von r/ich_iel(das deutsche gegenstück von r/i_irl), nicht von r/de. digga wird von jedem benutzt, auch teens. btw denke ich nicht, dass jugendsprache nur von nflix kommt.
eine gute quelle für memes wäre you looked.exe.
und wenn du einen amerikaner beim meme reacted sehen willst, schau dir james bray an.

A wealth of knowledge and humour

I came across this podcast when I was part of the parkrun group interviewed for one of the earlier podcasts. I have become a regular listener (having never really been a podcast listener before). I have lived in Germany for 7 years and to listen to other people’s experiences and realize that I am not alone or crazy, has been wonderful. I love the humour in these podcasts, I love the sincerity, I love the sympathy and I love the honesty. Anyone who has moved to Germany or thinking of moving to Germany should have a listen.
