Meeting 6 – Oktoberfest

Dear all,

On the 22nd of October, we met for our 6th meeting at the Oktoberfest party. As German food was already a topic last time, I concentrated my teaching to Oscar on typical German and Bavarian traditions and the way Germans use humor and jokes. This session was very interesting, because it underlined the cultural differences like no other meeting. My explanations of all the important German annual celebrations like carnival or Oktoberfest made Oscar look rather confused, as he obviously could not identify or relate to them at all. It was a session where I was actually in the role of the teacher all the time and didn’t learn much. At least we found one similarity: There is abig carnival tradition in Mexico as well.
