I love creative small businesses. I really get excited about other people trying hard to offer wonderful services to others while keeping the heart of a "person to person" relationship.

Expath is a fabulous small business here in Berlin that could easily become a second home for new expats.  They offer a variety of German courses, workshops and coaching for expats, and even interpreters to help expats with German at government offices and paperwork. 

Here's a few photos of their offices and classrooms.  When you come to attend a workshop or course you can also view local artist showcases and cosy up with a coffee or tea in one of their seating areas.  Add coffee to anything and I get excited...
