Since I started Deutschified it’s been important for me to build relationships with people, companies and services that will make your transition to Germany as easy as possible.

Some of these are sites I read and products I’ve used. Others I wish I’d known about when I first made the move to Germany and startled learning German.

And, as always, if you have any questions about anything you’ve read on the site you can contact me at  jamesthinksthings[at]gmail[dot]com .
