In session 27 we are talking about Anja and Igor Sandler. In this text we are using a new tense -- the past simple. Listen and find out how the simple past is used. A couple of years ago Anja and Igor started providing real estate services in Leipzig and their business has been growing since then. Igor tells the story. I grew up in Georgia where people of different nationalities live and I got used to cultural diversity. As a teenager my family moved to Odessa on the Black Sea and there, life was different again.

When we came to Germany about five years ago, we didn't speak the language very well but we were eager to learn. We first took a 6-month intensive German language course and tried to make friends with local people. This is not always easy when you start speaking another language. Now there are quite a number of Russian born Germans in Leipzig and when they come here, they all need help with a lot of things. For example, finding a new flat or communicating with the authorities. It was our idea to provide such services and as it turned out, it was a good decision. What I like most about my job is that I meet so many interesting people who help me improve my communications skills.
