Berlin Reviews

My experience with Berlin was average overall. The schools were nice. Teachers seem to care for their students. And the school systems focused heavily on preparing the students for the next grade level, then eventually life after graduation and college. In addition, the diversity in Berlin is vast. We see a lot of ethnic groups around shopping area, malls, and on school grounds. The concern I have though is with safety. Some of the suburban areas of Berlin are somewhat tame in themselves. Yet when you cross over into the urban areas, you may run into some trouble. I would suggest more police support in the area to help keep the amount of troublesome causes under control. I would also like to see the cost of living in the Berlin area to decrease. I live in a single parent household and it can be difficult to make ends meet. So add it with the high cost of living, the burden of finances increases for each family member.
Review Berlin
Berlin reminds me of one of the small towns you see in movies. It's place where you can't just run into the local supermarket, because as soon as you cross of the threshold of the supermarket doors there are ten people you know, and you have to have the "catch up" conversation with. The feeling of Berlin is warm and kind, it really brings me home.
I would definitely choose to live here in the future, because it is just a great atmosphere.
