First week is over

It was a good week. I didn’t have too much time for myself  (I was back home very late every day) so my fridge is empty and dirty cloths are running out from the basket, but that was not the point. It’s totally worth it, now, when priority is to finally learn german.

Thinking about the course itself, I like the way lessons are organized. Hella (the teacher) is always well prepared, there are no moments of embarrassing silence when the teacher doesn’t know what to do next. And I love the way she explains words, she  gives many examples of real life situation when you can use this particular word and she does it with incredible enthusiasm. Another good thing is the variety of tasks. Three hours is a long time, but because it’s full of many activities like standing up, changing places, making conversation with different partners, listening, writing, reading loud – I don’t feel so tired. The only thing I would change is the time it starts. 15 minutes later would be so more convinient! I guess not only for me… Nevertheless, I think I will sign up for the next month. I just need to find more shops open till midnight.

All you need is sport

I’m after the third class and my mood is surprisingly good. I didn’t expect these lessons to be so much fun. Frankly speaking, I was afraid that after 8 hours of work learning german during the next 3 hours will be a way through hell. But it’s not so bad. Today I decided to make my daily rutine more hardcore and I went to the gym right after german class. Yes, it was really late, almost half past nine, and no, I do not take drugs. I was lucky to find a gym on the way from DeutschAkademie building to my home.  It’s not the prettiest one but I found there everything I need. It’s cheap (19e per month), open 24h and clean enough. However, I do not recommend it to people who don’t  have experience yet – instructors don’t seem to care too much about the way you exercise or your technique. As they say: you cannot have everything.

What I love the most here

As I still have one day to start my German course, its a good moment to write something about Berlin.

What I love the most about it it’s variety. Each district has it’s own character and has something special to offer, you just need to decide if you prefer quiet and family-friendly areas or more vivid, international surroundings. I decided to live in Kreuzberg. Old East Berlin, nowadays extremaly popular, full of bars, cafes, food from all around a world, small shops selling well designed clothes next to cheap turkish supermarkets  and uncountable amount of young people in between. Don’t be surprise if one sunny day while walking around you will pass an opened window of a flat where you see a man giving a free contrabass concet to the world. People are truly opened, tolerant and easy going here, not only in Kreuzberg but general Berlin. And above all of it rises main symbol of german capital and my favourite landmark: television tower.


I‘m Agata and I work in Berlin as an architect. Moving here from Poland was the easiest decision in my life. City is awesome, I had already some friends living in Berlin and job actually knocked to my door. Couldn’t be better right? But this one, tine thing was destroying my perfect mood from the very beginng. Language. I have never lernt it before and to be honest- never really willing to. But c’mon, being surrounded by Germans and not even try? Unfortunatelly I spent last half of year pretending to doing anything in this direction and this has to stop.

So here I am: 7 months after moving to Berlin, 2 days before my first day of an Intensive Course at DeutschAkademie.
Working full time and going to german course for 3 hours 4 times a week? It’s gonna be fun.
