Transcript of German Food
People in Germany live lives very similar to our own. They have a high standard of living, use of technology, cars, and food (some might say better than ours!). There are also some things they do differently than us. As we go through the presentation try and think of things that might show up in #German Life.
The German flag consists of three equal sized horizontal stripes, colored black, red, and yellow from the top down. The German flag colors and the eagle date back to the Roman Empire during which all three colors were used for various flags and banners throughout the Empire.
Red- bravery and strength
Yellow as a symbol of generosity.
German food varies from region to region, but throughout the country they are famous for their sausage (Wurst), varieties of sweet dessert and Stollen (a fruit cake). Germans also are famous for rye bread.
German students begin their education about the same age as American students. They have several different types of school.
Driving in Germany
A German Führerschein, or driver's license:
costs at least €1,500 euros. (roughly $2,026.95)
Requires about 60 hours of class at Fahrschule (driver's ed)
30% of the people who take the drivers' test fail on the first try
Licenses are valid for 15 years.
The legal driving age is 18, but most people don't get their license until they're 21 because it is so expensive.
Basically, elementary school.
They attend this until 4th grade. After fourth grade, children, parents, and their teachers decide what kind of high school the student will attend.
This high school provides a basic education for the next five years.
This school provides six years of school for students entering vocational occupations. Vocational courses are job focused educational courses that are meant to prepare the student for work in a specific field such as a hair stylist or a welder.
This is the final choice students have when selecting a high school. Students at the Gymnasium take a variety of classes to prepare them for the
and university (college).
Abitur- German Graduation
The Abitur is a difficult test the students take in order to graduate from the Gymnasium. It is also the name for the graduation ceremony.
The German Flag and National Anthem
Some more school day facts:
In Germany, the teachers switch rooms, not the students.
There are no intercoms, so students must read the bulletin board to find out what is happening.
The board will list teachers who are absent. Why? If a teacher is gone, the class doesn't meet! There aren't any substitute teachers in Germany.
Students don't eat lunch at school.
