Finally, after so long, my work permit may come tomorrow. I desparately need it. Otherwise I will be dammed.
A last tip for the road
“Lastly, beware of what I describe as ‘the four-year wobble’, which is generally to do with how good your grasp of the local language has become.
The first year can fly by as you get into the new job, discover the city you are living in, start language classes and generally play the role of the new arrival. But around the fourth year or earlier, the glamour starts wearing off as you face the reality; that you haven’t quite achieved what you had hoped to have achieved by this time.
For instance, you may not have really got to grips with the language, or made as many friends as you would have hoped.
Don’t be discouraged. This is the time to give things a little push, focus on your language learning again and search out new ways of improving your social network.
Remember why you wanted to move in the first place and draw from that reason or ambition to get you through.”
