• Hauptschule – offers students a vocational education and the final examination takes place after grade 9 or 10.
• Gesamtschule – combines academic courses with vocational ones and allows the student to transfer to either Hauptschule or Realschule in grade 10.
• Sonderschulen – a type of school, which prepares students for Hauptschule or Realschule. Only one in 21 pupils in Germany attends this type of school.
Useful Tips and Removals Germany
1. Learn the language. Learning German will enhance your experience. Going to the shops, at the doctor or dentist, when renting/buying a property, in a local restaurant/bar etc. are so much easier once you have mastered the language.
2. Rent before you buy. Once you have found where you think you want to settle, take a few months to `test drive’ the area to be sure that you can live there. Holidaying is not the same experience as living. Renting a property for at least 6 months will enable you to get a feel your chosen area.
3. Explore the area. When you have moved to an area, spend time getting to know your new area. Locate where your local supermarkets and shops are. Where are the best local restaurants/bars? What local services are available? Find out where your local doctor/dentist is located and nearest hospitals in case of emergencies.
4. Make an effort to find new friends. The fun part is establishing a social network. Don’t just rely on your partner or family. Immerse yourself in the German culture, mix and make friends with locals as well as other expats. Mixing with people will enrich your experience and help you have a fun and a successful future in Germany.
Planning Your Move and Removals Germany
Planning your move as early as possible is definitely beneficial, as there are a host of things that need to happen to ensure your move takes place on the day or days you require.
