We took a look at the latest data available from national statistics office Istat to get a picture of Italy's anglophone residents. A note on the numbers: they refer to people who have officially registered their residence with the local authorities, something all foreigners in Italy are supposed to do after three months living here (but that some don't). They don't include non-Italians who only spend part of the year in Italy, naturalized Italians, or dual citizens who've registered under their Italian passport. And of course, there's no way to count all the many people from non-English-speaking countries who use the language too. But with all those things in mind, here's what we know about native English speakers living in Italy. As of January 1st, 2017, around 5.1 million non-Italians called Italy home, roughly 8.5 percent of the country's total population of 60.5 million. Native English speakers account for only a small percentage of Italy's foreign … [Read more...] about Where do all the English speakers live in Italy?

Latest figures compiled by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) show that by the end of 2016, Germany had its highest ever population of foreigners (people who only hold a foreign passport) - 10 million people. This was a 23 percent increase compared to statistics from 2014. The country’s largest immigrant group is from Turkey (1.5 million), followed by nationals of Poland, Syria, Italy and Romania.

See where on the spectrum you fit in. There are some of us transplants who call mum every day, and others living abroad who only send a message when they need help with taxes or cooking. And we've likely all run across those who have two (or three) world clocks on their phones, or those who couldn't care what time of day it is back home (or anywhere else for that matter). Our friends at Voca, a favourite calling app among growing legions of expats across the globe, have long recognized that different expats have different needs when it comes to communicating with new friends in their adopted country, or staying in touch with family back home. So together we've pose the … [Read more...] about Tourist or lifer: what sort of expat are you?
