- First step to being a German….
Back in November I went to the office and registered that I want to apply for German citizenship.
Part of the process is two exams, citizenship test and language. The earliest appointments I could get was two months away, and nothing local.
Tomorrow is the first part. The Einbürgerungstest, or citizenship test.
33 questions from a pool of over 350. Made up of 30 questions about the Bundesrepublik Deutschland and 3 questions specific to the land /territory in which you live (my case Bavaria).
17/33 to pass.

@ Rickmeister…. Do it. Do it sooner rather than later.

Are you allowed joint citizenship?
yes… and no.
you can have dual citizenship so long as both are from EU member states. so theoretically, if i were to apply/my paper work was processed after the UK had officially left the EU then i would have to make the choice between UK or German.
as it is, the German gov. are making some allowances for UK citizens and if they have handed in their applications before the end of March (assuming the UK leaves with a no-deal) they can still get dual citizenship.
if there is an extended period of UK withdrawal from the EU then the German gov will give UK citizens until December 2020 to apply.Posted 5 months ago
@ Edukator…. That is my one concern.
(where did you get the 180 days from?)
Couple of questions on the application form are:
“do you be any Verurteilung (convictions) in Germany or another state?”
On that one I’m safe.
“hatten sie in den letzten 3 Jahren irgendwelche Ordnungswidrigkeiten?”
(have you had any misdemeanours in the last 3 years?)
Well, yes. Quite a few and one rather big glaring one. Several tickets for riding my bike along a bike path the wrong way and going against the red man.
Some people have said leave it blank (an omission of information is not a crime). Others have said you’ve paid up and been punished, it shouldn’t go against you.
I’m torn.Posted 5 months ago
Well after 20 mins effort
Glückwunsch! Sie haben 27 Fragen von 33 richtig beantwortet.
Damit hätten Sie den möglichen Einbürgerungstest der Bundesrepublik Deutschland bestanden. Dazu sind nur 17 richtige Antworten nötig.
Incidentally I did the test for prospective immigrants to England and failed.Posted 5 months ago

A German guy walks into a pub in London. The barman asks what he does.Posted 5 months ago
“I’m a comedian”
“a German comedian? No way. Tell me a joke…..”
The German replies “a good Frau is like a Volkswagen!” and then laughs so hard he falls off the bat stool.
Some of them really did make me smile, howsyourdad.

Die Menschen in Deutschland leben nach dem Grundsatz der religiösen Toleranz. Was bedeutet das?
Es dürfen keine Moscheen gebaut werden.
Alle Menschen glauben an Gott.
Jeder kann glauben, was er möchte.
Der Staat entscheidet, an welchen Gott die Menschen glauben.
To be honest, my biggest concern is getting there in time. Nearest place I could get an appointment for the test is about 50 minutes away on a good day.
It’s snowing right now and I’ll have to dig the car out and hope that the Autobahn ist frei.
It took the GF almost three hours to get to work yesterday because of the snow. Would normally take an hour.Posted 5 months ago
You’re right Alpin, it doesn’t work, but it’s the third result down if you type this in Google search:
“frag-einen-anwalt Einbuergerung drogen Vorstrafe”
It starts like this which should help you find it with Google
“4 avr. 2005 – Im Januar 2003 habe ich Drogen konsumiert und wurde danach im Strassenverkehr eriwscht und habe dafür eine Strafe von 80 Tagessätzen”Posted 5 months agoleffeboySubscriber
As you enter the exam if someone says “good luck” in English be sure to reply in German
Well I sniggered.
My application to become Belgian is in. Working here for 5 years continuously gets you straight through the language and integration test which is rather nice really. The rest is a couple of hundred euros and a bunch of forms. If you haven’t got the work record then you need to do language tests and get various people to write letters for you.Posted 5 months agoMSPSubscriber
I should have done it, but health problems over the past 18 months have decimated my German language lessons, and I need to go back and cover ground I did 2 years ago.
I have had lots of friends do it, one tip is for the language test don’t do it at the goethe institut, they are proud to be quite strict. There is another official organisation you can do it with (the name of which I cannot recall) they allow a little more leeway. Unless you are very confident in your German skills of course, but I know a couple of guys who have been here for 20 years and I would consider to speak near perfect German who failed at the goethe institut.
England Versus Germany, World cup Final. Who do you support?
The correct answer would be anyone but Holland.Posted 5 months ago
