Advent Calendar Day 14

Today’s post comes from Evie. Thank you, Evie!

Hello, I am Evie  Stougia and I am from Greece. I came to England two years ago to get my BA degree and now I am a junior buyer for Apetito Ltd, the food manufacturer. As Apetito is part of a German Group, we need to liaise frequently with our colleagues in Germany and exchange ideas, plans and benchmarking practices. I believe that by learning each other’s languages we can bridge the cultural and  linguistic gap and be able to cooperate harmoniously adding real value to the Group’s operations. While I have studied German for two years in the past, I find it extremely difficult speaking it; reading and understanding the language has always seemed simpler to me. Hopefully, one day my conversational German will be in a satisfactory level and I will be ready for my first trip to the site in Germany!

    I completely agree with you!

    German is a very useful language when visiting Eastern Europe because once Germany was huge and covered huge parts of Europe. That’s why there are so many ethnic Germans in Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria and the Balkans. Culturally it is also very important as there are so many German operas and lieder, drama and novels.It is also the language of business , manufacturing,science and commerce given German is spoken widely not only in Germany, but also Austria,Switzerland, Luxembourg, parts of Italy and Lichtenstein. It is not an easy language to master but persevere and before you realise it you will be chatting away.
