- First step to being a German….
@ cchris…. Definitely the case in Germany.
Although the GF kinda has dual citizenship. German-Iranian. Only because Iran automatically hands out a passport to anyone with vague connections (her dad is Iranian,she has never lived there and was born in Germany). Germany accepts this, but does not officially acknowledge it.Posted 6 months agoRoter SternMember
Test bestanden! 31 von 33.
Should know a thing or two after living here for 18 years!😳 Just two questions about the names of some politicianI got wrong. I know a couple of German people here who would fail that test though.
I’ve been meaning to apply for German citizenship for a while especially after the British Embassy organized a meeting in the city last year and basically said that know one has a clue what is going to happen if Brexit goes through. I can’t imagine the country kicking me out though seeing as I have four children with German passports, I run a business here paying a shed load of tax and own property here. As a last resort I could always marry Mrs Stern as we’ve been together for over 20 years!Posted 6 months agoleffeboySubscriber
, I know a guy who worked for BP there and ended up in a Flemish one , they got really upset if he spoke any french
Yes. The folks themselves are lovely and will happily speak English but at a commune level they are much more protective, especially in Flemish communes it seemsPosted 6 months agoElbowsSubscriber
Alpin, did mine in November, did you also get the ‘what are the colors of the Bavarian flag’ and the capital of Bayern’ questions? I got the feeling they let anyone in with the test and the real test is to produce 3 month’s payslips and be up to date with your tax.Posted 6 months ago
No, neither of those.
One Bayern specific one was “which of these is the Bavarian Wappen?”
The other maybe “was hat Bayern nicht?
Regarding your point about them wanting to see that you’re tax is up to date, etc….
Being self employed they want to see that your earnings for the last two years are over 20,5k gross.
Mine was always way over, but 2017 my mum got ill and I spent most of my time in the UK, earning nothing. The guy at the amt put it in my notes.
I’m yet to hand in my Steuererklärung for 2017…. That is partly my fault for having a shitty accountant.Posted 6 months agoCountZeroMember

I’d fail any English test that involved politics, and I’ve lived here my entire life.Posted 6 months ago
And as for football or sports, or celebrity telly…
