Because I am an Afghan, I have not received a German course in recent years. I would like to do an apprenticeship. I’m a tailor. I worked with furniture in Iran.
I have to learn German, learn to understand. Here I would also like to work in a furniture company. I am currently taking a language course for level A2 – another ten days, then is the big test. Next week. This is very difficult for me, reading and writing.
I am alone in Germany, I have no family. When I open the book after the German course, my head is sometimes empty. I won’t understand what it says anymore. I need help learning German. Persian and Iranian – no problem.
I have no children, nor am I married. I’ve been in Germany for three years.
I’m from Afghanistan. There were many problems there. That’s why I came here. There were problems with the Taliban there. For example, you had to be home early and were not allowed to ride your motorbike in the evening. It was too dangerous. Not always, but sometimes.
Here in Germany it is very difficult with the language. Learning is very difficult.
