Although your entire study program may be in English, it is essential for you to understand German customs and conventions and to get a sense of Germany’s history.
The workshop in English and German will:
-practice how to communicate with fellow students, professors and professionals such as landlords and bank clerks.
-practice how to introduce yourself and do “small talk”
-Provide a sense of German socio-political history from 1945 to today
-Discuss social and cultural differences when it comes to politeness, environmental issues or customs.
-recognize and avoid cross-cultural misunderstandings
