COMMUNICATION
· The official language of Germany is German

· 95 % of the people in Germany do speak German, however today many people
also speak English. When interviewing my Grandmother she said that so many
people are able to speak English because Americans have been in Germany
since World War II.

· Many other languages that are spoken in Germany include Turkish, Danish and
Romani.

· Although German is spoken by most of the country, the language varies from
district to district. Each person may speak German, but have a different accent
depending on their location.

· When addressing an individual in Germany that is older you put the word “Sie”
which translates to “it” before there name. When addressing a child you would
use the word “du” which means “you”.
GERMAN GREETINGS
· In Germany, the polite way to greet someone is to shake their hands. It is proper
etiquette to shake hands with each person of a group that you encounter.

· In Germany, it is proper etiquette to have both hands on the table during meals. It is
also proper to wish everyone “Guten Apetit” which means “Good Apetite” before a
meal.

·Germans are very punctual, so it is important to always be ontime!

· In Germany, it is considered impolite to wave or shout when getting someone’s
attention. Instead you should raise your hand with your palm out and your index
finger extended.

· When saying “Goodbye” Germans say “Auf Wiedersehen”,
“Hello” is pronounced “Hallo”.
RELIGION

bring Spring early.

· Many festivals are based on holidays from the religious calender such as
Easter and Christmas.

Oktoberfest is a celebration in Germany that starts the third week in
September and goes through until the first week in October. Oktoberfest
began in 1810 as a celebration for a Royal Wedding. The celebration
continued after the wedding in front of the city gates of Munich. Horse races
were a big part of this celebration and the decision to continue the horse
races during this time led to Oktoberfest. In 1896 beer tents were set up to
accommodate the growing need for refreshment during this celebration and
thus led to the tasting of beers from different breweries. More than six
million people attend Oktoberfest every year in Munich .In 2011 the 178th
Oktoberfest was celebrated in the United States.
