There are different ways to make friends after moving abroad. Even if you don’t speak the language very well, sometimes a smile is enough. Here are some ideas on what can you do:

  • Sign up for a language class
  • Attend events and seminars which match your professional or personal interests
  • Join sports clubs or such dealing with activities you enjoy
  • Take part in charity campaigns
  • Go online and look for expat communities in your city
  • Look up social media for blogs and groups established around your interests

Don’t forget to get in touch with the EURAXESS Centre or a Local Point – they will be happy to assists you in finding out local sources of information about professional, social and cultural activities in your city.
