Get Germanized

I recently discovered a very interesting and useful YouTube channel called “Get Germanized”.

It is hosted by a young German lad with bags of enthusiasm who is clearly very keen to help us foreigners living in Germany. The channel has a great deal of content covering a wide range of interesting topics including things such as job hunting, his Grandfather’s World War II stories and typical German stereotypes. He even has some basic German language lessons which are pretty good for total beginners:

Please go take a look at his channel and give him a few thumbs up or nice comments as he really is trying to help make our lives here easier.

Healthcare In Germany

Moving abroad is a massive step. Numerous worries cross our minds ranging from whether our lack of the native language really will be a barrier through to seemingly trivial things like are decent tea bags available? However, one of the biggest and most important concerns is what are the healthcare arrangements in case of sickness or injury?

This is a complex subject which I won’t even try to cover in depth here as numerous factors such as nationality, salary and employment status are involved. Even if you are from another European state, it will not necessarily be so familiar – I am British and found that the German healthcare system is organised and administered very differently to the British National Health Service.

Luckily, “How To Germany” have a page on their website titled “Health Insurance Options in Germany – 2018” giving good explanations of how the German healthcare system works, including translations of common German words used in the industry. Clicking your mouse here to go directly to that page.
