Home Is Where the Heart Is - Teaching English in Berlin, Germany

By Megan Cape


While receiving my TEFL certificate from the International TEFL Academy, I pondered the possible cities I wanted to live in.

From Madrid to Argentina, thoughts of Istanbul and Rio De Janeiro, I finally landed on Berlin, Germany and I couldn't be happier with my decision.

When I first moved to San Francisco after graduating college, it took me a solid year until I finally felt at home. When I moved to Berlin, it took me about 3 months to feel at home. I have never felt like I belong in a place as much as I do here. From the people, to the events and activities, to the lifestyle, to the scenery, etc. I feel like Berlin fits me so well.
