Greetings from Moscow

(1/2) > >>

Hi all,

I've been an on and off Reader of this forum so figured I might as well sign up and contribute some value to it.

I'm originally from Germany but having lived in Russia for over 3 years now, I figure I can help some guys here with my knowledge.

Glad to be on board  :thumbsup:

Wilkommen und danke! 

What do you do for a living if I may ask. 

Can you tell us a bit about how the move and the transition was.  Do you speak Russian?  Was it relatively straightforward as far as paperwork, housing, language, employment? 

I think Russia is a great place to live. 

Sure thing, I’m a German and English private tutor. I’m building a business on the side as well since I don’t want to be stuck in teaching forever.

I came as a student and happened to return later to work for a start-up which didn’t satisfy me. That’s how I got into teaching. More by necessity than by choice. I’m good with languages and I’m good with people though, so it seems like a decent stepping stone. I’ll drop a post with tips and my personal experience about that at some point in the future.

For me, the transition was very easy. I was used to being abroad even before I came to Russia and had no problems blending in. I speak fluent Russian as well. Housing is pretty easy to get in Moscow. Paperwork and especially visa issues are a nuisance to say the least. But it’s all solvable if you really want to follow through with it.

Overall Moscow is great even though it drives me crazy at times. I’d not want to trade it for something else though. At the moment.
