What is the most important things during the job interview in Germany?
Conflicts are good. It's great to have an argument (die Auseinandersetzung) It means we have to find a new solution. It means that the relationship will be deeper. Once we can figure out how to solve the problem we feel free, we feel like a newborn baby. Some people try to avoid conflicts. They think conflict avoidance (die Konfliktvermeidung) is ok. I don't think so.
Each conflict, argument sends a signal. It is important not to take it personally and simply try to find the best solution . The only way to achieve it is through the resistance ( der Widerstand), pain (der Schmerz), difficulties (die Schwierigkeiten) and anger (die Wut). Do you agree?
Question for discussion for the German lesson:
1. How do you solve conflicts in your culture?
2. Is it better to avoid the conflict of face the problems and try to solve them?
I love cycling. Cycling is my passion. My favorite place to cycle is Switzerland.
When I am cycling I feel the flow. What is flow?
Flow is being enthusiastic (die Begeisterung). Cycling in the mountains is exciting, when I think about the speed (die Geschwindigkeit) and the power (die Kraft) I think about the flow experience (Flow Erlebnis).
Flow for me is the state of enjoyment (das Vergnügen). I don't have to do anything, I do it because I love it. Flow is the state of being a champion (die Meisterschaft). Flow is working without effort, forgetting about time and goals. It is effortlessness (die Mühelosigkeit).
I wish you the same experience with learning German.
In the beginning my students of German are always a bit tensed (angespannt) and nervous about our online conversation lesson. Some of my students feel so nervous that they can here their heart pounding (pochen).
My first task is to relax the student and make him comfortable. The aim of the first German lesson is to relax (Sich entspannen). After a few minutes it will be more and more relaxing (immer lockerer).
Once the student is relaxed and comfortable we can reach our goals, it is vital to be relaxed during our conversation lessons. It is natural that in some cases we might feel a bit nervous when we have to speak German.
The anxiety (die Angst) can be natural. It is one of our most frequently experienced feelings. A bit anxiety can be positive, it can release some positive energy. Dealing with stress and anxiety is part of our personal development (die Entwicklung). Let's face it: The anxiety and fear is part of our human nature (Angst beherrscht uns Menschen).
