German Culture

It’s true that Germany and the U.S. have much in common. But anyone who has lived in both places will tell you there is no lack of differences between U.S. culture and German culture. What an American intends as friendliness can be easily read as lack of professionalism. And what a German means as respect and politeness may look like a cold shoulder to an American.

Our German Intercultural Seminar is directed primarily at American expats. This seminar highlights the differences in public, business, and social norms between the two countries. We explain these differences in the context of our different histories and core values. Simply understanding where the differences came from makes the adjustment easier (and the expat assignment a lot less frustrating!).
