On 7 and 8 of May 2018 we met with a group from a language school in Leipzig-Lindenau. This group consisted mainly of Women, who have arrived to Germany just a few months ago. At the beginning of the seminar the lecturer asked the participants about their interests and needs in order to address these in the coming seminar.
Therefore the focus was put on finding an apartment and learning German. Besides the group dealt with cultural topics from their everyday lives by finding differences and similarities between the German society and those of their countries of origin. They talked about possibilities to get along in German everyday life, to respect social manners, without neglecting their own cultural backgrounds.
Following, the participants thanked the DOZ Team for this seminar and wished to visit more seminars of this kind in order to receive enough information for finding their path as “New Germans” within this new society.
