English as a foreign language

Living as a German in an increasingly English-speaking world

About this blog, and myself

Martin IbertI normally write content for the Web in German, my native language. But since I know a lot of people that do not understand that wonderful language, I thought it was high time to reach out to the non-German-speaking world and start an English-language blog to go with my German-language ones.

Working for the German subsidiary of a US-based software company whose EMEA headquarters is in in the UK, I’ve got lots of English-speaking colleagues – and friends. I twitter in English already, so an English-language blog is the logical next step.
