Cultural Differences: Germany and the UK
There are several exchange programs going on in our school; one of them is with a school in Leipzig, Germany. I think watching this video may be interesting for the students who have taken part in it or are thinking about it to learn about cultural differences, stereotypes, what one nationality knows about the other...
The video is a BBC documentary film called `Make Me a German´ and it points out things like this:
The typical German is called Muller, the nation's most frequent surname, and lives in a 1970's apartment block... Sabina is the most used female name. Thomas Muller is the most common male name. Germans certainly get up very early, 20 minutes prior than the average Brit. With two preschool children the typical German wife would not go to work.
