Got a new job as a Full Stack Engineer. Moving to a new city. Feeling extremely nervous and a bit scary (cause I don't speak the language). Sitting here browsing devRant to ease up and relax.

    If it makes you feel better, I moved to Switzerland about a year ago only knowing English. As of right now, my German is atrocious and my French is nonexistent but I've been surviving pretty well despite working with French people :) English is extremely common in technology so you're direct coworkers should understand English. That's not to say you shouldn't try to learn the language! Good luck!!!

    I moved to Germany from Ireland with a very basic level of German. I spent months freelancing while learning the language. As long as you have English and try to improve speaking the native language, you'll do fine.

    I moved from Mexico to Sweden 2.5 years ago, it wasn't easy but it's all good now. I am able to speak Swedish, I am getting more used to the country and i am very satisfied with my job!

    Just get a girlfriend/boyfriend and you will learn the language fast af, it will also help to understand the culture ;) Good luck and congratulations!
