Hello! My name is Marina Schatz (Schatz). I am not only a teacher of German (in Russia and Germany), but also just a girl who likes this very German language, Europe (namely Germany), Russia and travel. ;))))
I run this “blog about life in Germany” in order to help those people who may have decided to travel to Germany or other Schengen countries for the first time on their own, but they have a lot of questions. Also, I will make this blog useful for those people who decided to marry / marry a citizen of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Also, here I share with my readers impressions about life in Europe (mostly in Germany); I will reveal to you all the maps of real life outside of Russia and the CIS.
In addition to visa and documentation issues, I publish various educational materials for learning German and making it easier to learn.
Important. Everything that I will publish on this blog is based on my personal experience from 2013-2014. and official sources (links to which I give). Always check out any information that you are given in various forums. Do not think that you will be like someone! Everyone will have their own individual path, which will have to go! Well, in this we, people from the Internet, can only help with advice, opinion and experience! I wish all my readers only good and good luck in business! =)

Hello Marina! I have this question. My beloved lives in Kassel and we collected all the docks for marriage, got permission from the court and I thought it was over, but no ……. I thought it was left to take a visa and everything I would marry a loved one. but they refused me in all visa centers, they said it is necessary to make a visa for a bride … .. I don’t have much German with me, or rather you won’t tell me. we are limited in time, said before August you need to do everything. Embassy in Novosibirsk. What do you think, maybe I should come to the Czech Republic, and then come to him and get married, or is everything just strictly necessary according to their law? I know that I will not pass the exam … .. Is it really impossible for us not to be together … .. thanks in advance! Waiting for an answer from you. Svetlana

On the contrary, constantly imagine yourself close to your beloved – thoughts will materialize! =) And then, you still have a full 4 months ahead!

Hello Marinochka! Thank you for the knowledge gained on the site, everything is very entertaining and useful! =) I, like many girls on this site (and other sites related to Germany), also have their own history .. I also have a loved one .. But the fact is that my story is not over yet .. I just run out of strength, internal … Over the past 2.5 years I have experienced a divorce, unemployment, several courts, perhaps not the last, education the child is almost alone (thanks to my family for not leaving, understanding and helping so far) … P I was no longer opposed to marriages with foreigners, I did not understand girls who could not find a soul mate in their homeland .. Now I understand them perfectly, because I was in the same situation =) When I started to communicate with my lover, everything was somehow it’s strange, if it’s a joke, it’s been a long time doubt whether it’s true, maybe it’s making fun (it’s partly so), I’ve communicated with it to the visa! I don’t know how they gave me a visa! on the property .. Probably, my child saved me, peg to Russia! And so, the charges are over, winter – 25 I left my own door and the next day I flew to Berlin .. I didn’t know that it happens … It was difficult to surprise me, it seemed that I knew everything … Actually I know only a tiny drop out of what life can give us … In general, I fell in love with puddles and spent the best (.) in my life for two weeks, better only the moment of birth of my son!)) I didn’t write much, I would have to take a few pages of the blog))) The fact is that now everything goes to the fact that we want to reunite in all senses .. But I it is terrible … I am afraid that everything will go wrong, that something unexpected might happen, I worry for my relatives … And I am very afraid to lose IT … I lost a lot in life, everything happened, but I can’t imagine how I will be here without him to live if something does not work out … I know that you can earn money, arrange your life, eat well, dress beautifully, but there is something that you can’t buy and it’s impossible to forget … Thanks to my little one, he saves me from bad thoughts, gives me strength and love of life, I like to educate him, but I would like to educate him TOGETHER E … It may be silly to talk like that, because I know life and met many people, but the fact that now .. so only happens once and I want to believe in a happy outcome …

Girls, do not be afraid to take the exam A1 … I taught him from scratch in the center of the Goethe Institute for the express program … and you won’t believe when the 4 month course was over I was shaking that I couldn’t know anything … neither write, nor read, nor understand … but my self-confidence said that . I passed the exam by 81% with a 60% cross threshold. He is really easy! Learning is more difficult, but it is a necessity. She taught English at school and perceived German as a bird language. I passed the exam, went to the consulate in Moscow to hand over documents for a national visa … I was shaking again with fear … but there was no turning back … when talking with representatives of the German consulate from myself was in shock … it turns out I understand them … I can answer and write all that was required. Now I am waiting for a visa … and still do not believe that I could … really say our brain can do anything. Literally everything, and learn a foreign language, you just have to believe in yourself and your dream.
