Description & Show Notes

Nina explains what Germans expect from you when having dinner in their home.

This episode was originally recorded for The Germany Experience in February 2022.

Original show notes: 

Getting invited to a German's home for dinner is difficult enough, but if it happens, you're probably nearing the German's "inner circle". But how do you behave? What is good etiquette? Are there unwritten rules you need to know about? For foreigners, being a dinner guest in a German's home can feel like daunting minefield.

But actually, it's really not. Nina take us step-by-step through being a dinner guest in a German's home, starting from bringing a small gift through to how to signal that you're done eating your food.
