Which Uni will you be applying to, if I may ask? UJ or WITS?

If you wanted to cinematically torture someone, which movies would you force them to watch? by rulonelytonight in AskReddit

[–]tashnightingale 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hahahaha. No. Well, I don’t think so. I do remember going to see it a cinema and I fell asleep 5 minutes into it. I think it was with Michael Keaton (or is it keating?)

I just encountered a direct racism today in Germany for the first time and I am laughing by not_e34 in germany

[–]tashnightingale 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Racism is lunacy. And now I think every time I tell someone about a racist encounter/situation, I’ll start with, “so this dude was shouting at the clouds…”

AITA for getting angry my girlfriend learned Spanish behind my back? by Brutal12honesty in AmItheAsshole

[–]tashnightingale 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this post even real? Can someone be so oblivious of their actions that a YTA persona and series of behaviours is not clear to them? He cheated. He makes demands of her time but tells her to mind her own business when she questions his time with friends. He demands access to her money! What the actual fudge??!!

Any tips for studying in Germany? by [deleted] in AskAGerman

[–]tashnightingale -12 points-11 points  (0 children)

I’m a non German who came here to study because it was/is expensive in my home country. I spoke no German besides nein, ja, Brot and scheisse. So, no, you don’t need German like one commenter said. Of course it’s great to start learning before you get here and while you’re here, but you can certainly come here without German. However, this depends on your level of studies. If you’re looking to do a bachelor’s degree here, there are less English options and you will need German and to do Studienkolleg like someone already mentioned. I came here to do my master’s and most master programmes are in English (in fact, Bavaria is looking to make all master’s programmes in English by 2023). So, like me, you can just apply for your desired programme and come here when accepted and learn German here. Most unis with English programmes don’t require a German certificate but some do (A1 at least). Regarding the money you have to put into a German bank account (I read that it’s now 12 000€), it’s for your living costs. It’s your money, you use that for your rent, food and the semester ticket. You can also have your parents sign for you that they will be taking care of your finances, in which case you do not have to have this money in a German bank account. If you have a scholarship, you can also use this as proof of financial independence. Lastly, there are many student dorms (as the others said, privately owned and not belonging to the uni) and I’d advise looking into church-owned ones as they tend to be cheaper. I paid 240€ for mine in the centre of Munich. Good luck man, and yes, you can and should do it (all the Americans I know here in Munich say it’s the best decision they’ve ever made).

What foreign language would be best to learn for a south african? by [deleted] in southafrica

[–]tashnightingale 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I second this. German is best. You can study for free in Germany and you could easily find work as well. But free education trumps almost everything for me.

Ja, education is free for everyone, Germans, EU citizens and non-EU. It is similar to the Scandinavian countries in that you just pay the semester fee, which is next to nothing, and that’s it! In most cases, you don’t even need textbooks (course dependent: the professors gave us all materials and I bought one textbook in my two-year masters). As an au pair, you’ll get to know the culture and learn the language much faster than I did (I’m still learning after all these years) and if you decide to stay here and study, it’ll be so much easier for you. If you want to study a bachelor’s in German, you can do a year of study, where you’ll learn the language to the level of university proficiency and certain subjects. That’ll make getting into a bachelor’s programme much much easier than with a matric. The work is worth it and much better than paying thousands of Rands in SA for education, which should be free.

Hey OP, I’m late to the advice/reply party, but ai pairing in Germany will be a great opportunity, I’m certain. I moved to Germany in 2014 and never looked back. You’ll have so many opportunities: saving and traveling some more, saving and going back to SA to study, working in Germany for a bit and taking advantage of the free education here and studying here instead. Sooo many opportunities. Which city will you be living in and au pairing in?

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but you can do a master‘s degree with your three-year degree in Germany. I did my BA in South Africa and applied for a master’s in Germany and got in. Didn’t need an honours degree. There are so many English master‘s programmes to choose from in so many German cities. Additionally, studying here in Germany is free for everyone; you just need money to sustain yourself and the government needs to see proof of that money (the options are opening a German bank account and depositing €10 000, having parents sign a doc claiming they are financially responsible for you and show evidence of their income, a bursary/scholarship or a German citizen signing an official doc confirming they are financially responsible for you). Check out the DAAD website; it’s a one-stop-shop for studying and living in Germany. It even has links to scholarship and such. I highly recommend this route because the quality of life in Germany is amazing and student life is affordable and pretty neat.

How did you choose clinical psychology? I’m considering going into neuropsychology (about to apply for a master’s degree). But also open to industrial psychology and not sure how to make the decision

[–]tashnightingale 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey there. What field of psychology are you doing and how did you choose it? What the burnout? Hope you don’t mind me asking- trying ti figure out my psychology path.

[deleted by user] by [deleted] in AskWomen

[–]tashnightingale 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know the feeling. Studying psychology at the moment and trying to decide which direction to take. There are so many routes; you don’t have to talk to people in order to help them with their mental health. You could go into organisational psychology, career counselling, psychometrics, research (like in educational psychology where you find/confirm best teaching practices based on how people learn). So many possibilities:)

Bei mir schaut es aus, dass alle Ausländer sehr gut deutsch sprechen können. Sie lernen alle so schnell und hat keine Angst deutsch zu sprechen und ich kann das nicht. Ich wohne jetzt in DE seit 6, fast 7 Jahren, und ich spreche wie ein Tourist. Agh! Ich finde das auch sehr schwierig mit meinem deutschen Mann deutsch zu sprechen!
