Relocation during the coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus is having a massive effect on our lives. Just like in in the travel industry, it also affects all the service providers in the moving and relocation industry.

Relocation agencies – waiting for borders to re-open

The main purpose of all relocation agencies is to ensure that new employees from abroad quickly find a new home, whether it’s in Munich, Hamburg or Berlin. They also help newcomers with learning German and finding a suitable school for their children.

Relocaters such as Sophie Rehberg from Professional Organizing Relocation Consult GmbH or Elisabeth Sommer from Clapham GmbH & Elisabeth Sommer Relocation say their business has slumped by 75% to 90%.

The reason: employees are no longer allowed to travel to Germany and upcoming projects have been suspended by their companies. And even if employees are allowed to enter the country, they currently cannot get work visas because embassies and consulates are closed. Here, no online services cannot help because applicants have to appear in person. These offices were already overburdened before the coronavirus crisis, so it's easy to imagine how much worse it will be after they reopen ...

Language schools teaching German

sprachschulen1Scientifically speaking, there are two ways to learn German as a foreign language: the unsupervised method – picking it up on the street – or the structured approach in classes.

A mixture of both is probably best. Experienced language institutes prefer to use a varied blend of exercises for speaking, listening, writing, reading and vocabulary as well exercises as for pronunciation and grammar in their learning programs. These are supplemented by elements of regional studies.
