What do I need to know about living in Nordrhein-Westfalen?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Nordrhein-Westfalen, they said:
"LEARN THE LANGUAGE!! Never move to a country where English is not the Mother tongue and expect it to be easy as English is the world language, because barriers will be faced on every corner. Ensure that you have checked out your qualifications, and determine their German equivalent. Accept culture differences and do not resist intergration.
For English readers, stock up on OXO cubes, Cornish pasties, Scampi fries etc, etc...
For American readers:
Beware most German beer is 4.9% vol.
