Studying a language is not just a way to learn to communicate with people – it`s much more than that.
Learning a language is also the key to understand a foreign culture. While studying, you will notice more and more, how the language helps you to understand the people`s values and customs.
You will learn the way how people are using specific words – which might be different than in your own language. You will notice for example when people are treated with a formal „Sie“ or an informal „du“, when to say „bitte“ and „danke“ or which words tell you that people are happy, sad, stressed or relaxed.
