Hi, I am from Hong Kong and thinking about to join the working holiday program to Europe at the end of 2011. I thought to go Ireland but someone told me the Ireland economy is going down. No that easy to having a job especially someone like me only be able to work for the same employers no more than 3 months…

So, how about Germany? I understand that I should learn some Germanic before I gone. Otherwise, there is no job I can choose/ willing to hire me as well.
(One the travel magazine in Hong Kong had do the research there is no one in German willing to hire someone who do not know Germanic…)

Since I do not know German so much, only the Legoland (I want to go there!!!!) and some famous Business city just like Munich, Frankfurt. I know I can found a lot of history there and easy to go other Europe country. But I afraid that, does the Germany safe (ESP. I am Asian) and their econ is not that down like Ireland? (I heard that the econ is keeping down in Spain, Italy (!?) and Greece…)

Even though I can choose to go Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Germany and Ireland.
I think only this two European country are more interested for me to go ….

Just want to hear some advise and helping me to make the decision where should I go …

The economy in all of Europe is doing badly, so I don't think your chances of finding a job in Germany are very high either. Given that you don't speak any German, you might try to find a position with a Chinese company in Germany.

More information about the Hongkong - Germany Working Holiday programme.

Contact data of the German consulate in Hong Kong.

Btw, Legoland is located in Denmark...
