      Hi callommmm,

      I moved from the UK to Germany a few years ago to work for the German Space Agency. At first I did not speak any German but I was able to slowly learn.

      I am now able to understand and speak a lot but most of my colleague speak great English anyway!

      I studied Spanish at school, Dutch when I lived in the Netherlands, and Japanese because my husband speaks it.
