When living in a foreign country, we are often challenged by situations in everyday life that we sometimes find hard to grasp or to understand. These so-called critical incidents are part of our intercultural experience. In this course we will have a look at some cultural theories and approaches in order to acquire a set of tools for helping us in these “critical incident situations”. We will also discuss the aspect of stereotypes and clichés and have a quick glance at some basic aspects relating to the geography, history and institutions of Germany.
Apart from training our cultural awareness, we will also train our German language skills by learning basic vocabulary and grammar in order to be able to communicate in daily life situations.
