Advent Calendar Day 21
Today’s post comes from Rachel. Thank you, Rachel!
I receive German lessons through work as we are a German owned company. I initially volunteered for lessons as I enjoy learning languages but I’m finding that it’s becoming more and more useful as my career progresses.
I’ve been learning for about 18 months now and whilst I struggle with certain aspects (numbers, the time etc) it’s slowly becoming clearer. I’m looking forward to the day that the penny drops! I enjoy learning about the cultural aspects of Germany and as a class we’ve even gone so far as to sample some Butterkuchen.
I now have to visit Germany regularly and feel much more confident in understanding what’s going on around me and it’s always reassuring to know that I can order a glass of wine and a slice of cake wherever I go!
