Achieving a more intense interaction

Written by Garry on


Learning a language can be great fun or be seen as an overwhelming task. Access to German society and the ability to understand the culture of the new or temporary home is a huge reward for those that rise to the challenge.

Whilst the language is quite complex, it possesses and understandable logic. For Asian nationals the language can be quite a tongue twister. UK or US nationals may have learned some at school, eastern and northern Europeans grasp it quickly. For some, the use of English in the corporate environment can create a major challenge to learning.

Easy, basic knowledge is available at the VHS and ASG, the Goethe Institute and several other commercial companies also offer interesting courses. Many private and more individual alternatives can be found too.

German for Fun

We’ve all been there, standing in a foreign culture finding ourselves pointing, gesticulating and maybe even praying to be understood. Germans mostly speak at least some English. However, some may wish to carry a few words with them for those awkward moments.
