LANGUAGE: Lunch & Learn: Introductions and Small Talk
Do you ever feel like your lunch hour could be more productive? Why not come along to the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta and make it more productive by taking part in our Lunch & Learn session! This session will introduce you to the basics of German language learning. Want to know more? Read on!
Learning and new language can be daunting and over-whelming. This introductory session will ease you into it gently, teaching you the basics you need to say things like hello and your name along with how to make basic small talk.
And the best part – the class is just 1 hour long over lunch! You can learn some German and return to work to continue your day – no staying later after work and getting home in the dark! Oh, and did we tell you lunch is included too? It sure is!
But why would you want to start on the path to learning German? Well, German is one of the most widely-spoken languages in Europe, with German businesses one of the top investors in the south eastern United States. If you’re looking for a new job, chances are high your employer could have a German connection and having that second language skill on your résumé will help you to stand out from the crowd. Did you also know that being bi-lingual also helps boost your intelligence and stave off dementia? This is sounding like a win-win all round, right? And of course, there are the travel benefits if you’re planning a trip to Germany, the fact that being introduced to a new language and culture opens your mind to new things and if you have family connections to Germany, could help you to converse with them a little more!
