goethe institut

ALL we know about Germans we learnt from the Goethe-Institut, “the Federal Republic of Germany’s cultural institution operational worldwide”:

We promote the study of German abroad and encourage international cultural exchange. We also foster knowledge about Germany by providing information on its culture, society and politics. Our educational and training products enable mobility in an international learning community.

A new video called “Typical German: Professional vs. Personal” explains more.

Why do Germans stick to the point?

Why do they value stability and structure?

Why do Germans never leave things to chance?

Why do they stay focused on the objective?

Answer: They fear other Germans.

The division of Germany into smaller states meant Germans were “constantly surrounded by enemies”. 

You see? If you don’t like Germans and wonder why they bombed your granny’s house you should blame Germans – the other Germans:


It’s all a huge misunderstanding. “We’re all Germans…”
