Germany’s culture has small yet drastic differences from American culture. (Especially if you’re accustomed to a Midwestern way of life.) Say for example , you bump into someone in the Midwest, you can expect them to apologize profusely for being in your way. Germans would never do this, and even though I studied abroad in Berlin, I still didn’t get a full grasp of such nuances of German culture until I moved here to teach English.
