Where is a resource to find answers to questions about modern time immigration from the U.S. to Europe and visa verca. Mainly I am looking for answers to: "What city has the most former Americans in Russia"? "What suburbian area has the most Russians in America"? "Where are the most English speaking people in Germany"?

"Where are the most English speaking people in Germany"? This query does not fit the pattern of your question. All German children must learn English in school - some better, some worse - but very many German natives speak English very well. If you are asking about immigrant English speakers, there are, of course, British, Irish, Americans, even Indians and South Africans, plus other nationalities, and then there are the non-immigrants, expatriates working in Germany. The same applies for Americans in Russia, probably few "former Americans" but many expatriates working there, most of them in Moscow. There was a recent question on the subject - a surprisingly large number.

Kevlyn, Thanks for your clarification. I still have to ask for another clarification. You speak of "a former American" and "a former Russian", each settling in the other country. The "former" implies that they have or intend to give up their original citizenship. Is this precisely what you mean? Immigrants usually do eventually become citizens of the host country, but many - like me, an American in Germany - do not. I doubt that US citizens who settle in Russia would, whereas Russians who managed to settle in USA would be more likely to consider it a decision to remain and become a US citizen. This does not refer to persons - either way - who are in the country for business reasons and expect to return. Germany: I live here for more than 30 years. For Americans, it is not an immigration country as it is for some other nationalities who seek a place in a more prosperous country but want contact to people who speak their language and have their customs. The relatively few US citizens that settle here permanently probably came originally through their work - also military - and remained for personal reasons, marriage to a German, retirement after years here. There are areas with more Americans: Frankfurt, towns with former US military posts, but there is no place where US immigrants settle to be together with "their own" because there is not that kind of US immigration to Germany. If, however, that is your personal interest, maybe some specific information can be found. You may find my comment to be less than helpful. Perhaps I have misunderstood you, or my view of immigration does not coincide with yours. Just trying to help, Myoarin
