Guten Tag! Do you know about Germany?
What do you know about Germany? It is a powerful nation in Europe, it has excellent beer and sausages, it has an autobahn running throughout the country, and what else? Germany may seem to be a close and familiar country to Japan but there is still much more to find out about it!
How do German people exchange greetings: between men and women, friends, older and younger people? Are there any similarities to the Japanese custom of greeting one another? It is often said that German people go straight back home immediately after work so as to spend precious time with their family. Does that mean that Germans do not go out for a drink with their boss or colleagues after a hard day at work? Is it not considered to be a part of their job?
This month's guest is Rev. Joachim Kleemann, a missionary of Ushiku Evangelical Church. He has helped many people in Germany and Japan. He will talk about German history, economics, religion as well as the daily customs, which many Japanese tourists may not have the opportunity to experience.
Date: February 27 (Wed)
Time: 14:00 - 16:00
Place: Tsukuba Information Center 3F
Guest Rev. Joachim Kleemann
