The German students are still preparing themselves for the arrival of their Indian guests. Because of this weekly intercultural training they are now aware of small culturall differences that can result in big misunderstandings and can also lead to a so called culture shock.
But what are these differences? What is typical for Germany and how do Germans handle things diffent?
The students combed the internet for a collection of dos and don’ts in Germany.
The following videos are just a small example of the huge amount of Videos you can find on youtube. Dozens of travellers and exchange students talk about their impressions of Germany and about the small things in average life they fount quite different to their own culture.
Please leave a comment, if you know another good clip about German issues that give you the culture shock!
