Sami Chabouk from Syria: Zwickau quickly became his new home

Actively making connections:
Learn the language to settle in

Sami Chabouk sees Zwickau as a safe city where he can move around freely. He likes to stroll through the city's streets after work, happy to keep coming across familiar faces. Although Zwickau has the status of a large city, everything remains easy to get to grips with for him. He likes that.

Sami recommends that people who are new to the Zwickau Region actively start making connections straight away. Even though it's difficult, everyone should learn German as soon as possible. That helps to get established, he says. The locals are attentive and understanding towards him.
