Recommendation for English Speaking GP in Berlin?


in Berlin, Germany by @tammy | 2yr  | 0 comments

Hello! I am looking for an English speaking GP in Berlin who can write a prescription for schedule 1 medication. Currently I am in Northern Ireland who have a very complicated medical system, which is not Digital Nomad friendly! I would like to make an appointment with a GP who can help me ASAP. Thanks!

Where should I set up my company as a remote worker?


by @beloruchka | 6d 6 days ago | 7 comments

Iโ€™m looking for any recommendations for services or people others have used to get answers on the best place to set up their businesses based on their personal circumstances.

Leaning towards Singapore after a ton of research, but would really like some concrete advice before jumping in.

Appreciate it!

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 16d 15 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

Internet Speed (Teaching English Online)


by @teacher | 3yr 2 years ago | 0 comments

Hi guys.

Iโ€™ll be travelling to Peru soon to volunteer and thinking to teach online in Cusco. Iโ€™m wondering what the best set-up would be for speeds high enough to teach via video-platform online. Iโ€™m open to getting a SIM Card with a data package, getting a dedicated internet provider for a private apartment or using an ethernet cable to increase speed.

Thank you,
Seda

Worried about English fluency when finding a job in Ireland?


in Ireland by @gonzalezveroni94 | 3yr 2 years ago | 1 comment

Hi Nomads!

Iโ€™m Veronica, a spanish graduate of computer science. I moved to Dublin to get a job and I have an interview next week. I have a good fluency for now but I am worried I will not be able to speak to my co-workers about specific topics because I am not a native speaker. I can talk about general things but I worry my english is not good enough to talk about what I am trained in.

Does anyone else face this problem when moving to new countries? If so, how did you overcome this? Thanks!!

Digital Nomad for Refugees in Germany - Any ideas?


in Germany by @wasabi | 4yr 3 years ago | 3 comments

Hi Iโ€™m Japanese<>English Translator/Blogger currently lives in Leipzig,Germany.

I was wondering if any of you know any websites/services for refugees and immigrants that support them to be a Digital Nomad? Like, seminars, courses, lectures, guides, e-book in their language (Arabic,Albanian,Serbian,Kurdish,Pashto,Dari, etcโ€ฆ)?

I know some platforms for refugees to find a job online, but these jobs are not mainly location free works. Iโ€™m wondering how realistic it is for refugees to work remotely? I am thinking to list up the Upwork type of online job platforms on my blog, and accordingly do some seminars ; how to get jobs, how to monetize your blog and so onโ€ฆ

Iโ€™m asking this because lots of refugees I meet here are all complaining how hard for them to get a physical job in Germany, especially my area Leipzig has less job opportunities in general. (Thus, cost of living is amazing for DN like me.) So, I think going DN could be a good solution for them. What do you think?

Meetups in Berlin


in Berlin, Germany by @innaboch | 4yr 3 years ago | 6 comments

Are there regular meetups for Nomads in Berlin? I will be spending a month in Berlin and would like to meet and get to know the community. I had a great experience in Ubud, Bali (meetups, workshops, idea exchanges etc) and looking for something similar in Berlin. Any thoughts and ideas?

Thank you,
Inna

Is there a Chinese to English universal translator?


by @fcohen | 4yr 4 years ago | 5 comments

Hi Nomadistas, Iโ€™m considering Shanghai this Summer. I an American from California. I speak English, French, Swiss German, and Italian. I work for myself and will be writing a novel, unrelated to China. How is it going to be language wise to live and get around? Is there a universal translator app for my Android phone/TMobile?

Can I stay in Vietnam as a dependent spouse if my partner (wife) is teaching English?


in Vietnam by @elephanttalk | 5yr 5 years ago | 5 comments

After taking lots of small trips around the world as vacations, weโ€™ve fallen in love with Southeast Asia and have decided to go there to teach English. Well, sort of - my wife is certified and will be teaching. I plan to use the time to develop an app that I have been trying to work on during nights and weekends up to this point. I figure I can live modestly and work on it full time for a year and see if I can get it โ€œdoneโ€ enough to actually launch after a yearโ€™s work!

I donโ€™t plan to make any money while there, and I donโ€™t want to get a job (poor meโ€ฆ) just to enable me to stay - I just want to work on my app (unpaid) full time. I plan to try to get a TT visa (http://immigrationservices.com.vn/visas-tt-vr/), and she will hopefully be on the Lฤ visa (https://visa.mofa.gov.vn/NewsDetail.aspx?type=Info&id=28#sec1).

Hereโ€™s the wrinkle: most advice I find online (admittedly geared toward those travelling solo) tends to recommend going on a tourist Visa and finding a job, housing, neighborhood that you like in person, and then getting your employer to sponsor your work permit, then using that to get the business (Lฤ) visa. Indeed, a lot of resources say it can be hard to find a reputable language school to hire you and sponsor your visa before entering the country.

If we both went on tourist visas, and she found work and was able to get a work permit, could I then convert my tourist visa to a TT (dependent spouse) visa? Is there any way to be sure that this is going to work besides just going and hoping?

As a follow up if that plan sounds too sketchy, should I get certified to teach English just in case I need to get my own job? Iโ€™d like to avoid it if I can, the certification and training is pretty expensive.

Worst case scenario, how many times can I do a visa run and stay on a DL (tourist) visa? Maybe Iโ€™m just bad at researching, but I canโ€™t find a really good resource for this kind of information.

I hope this isnโ€™t asking too much. Even a link to some more in-depth resources online would be greatly appreciated - I canโ€™t seem to find any definitive information on people using the TT visa in Vietnam.

Thanks in advance!

How do you survive hanging out with a group of people that don't speak English well?


by @tylerf | 5yr 5 years ago | 6 comments

Iโ€™ve been living in countries where English isnโ€™t spoken that well among the population.

Most of the time I hang out 1-on-1 with a native that speaks good english.

And thatโ€™s because when Iโ€™m in a group where most people donโ€™t speak good English, itโ€™s painful and awkward.

You feel bad if everyone switches to English just because of you, but at the same time you feel totally left out if everyone speaks their native language which you donโ€™t understand much about.

Have you guys faced such situations before?
How did you handle it?
