German I students recently started learning about the different names and pronunciations of foods as well as what Germans will eat in a day and German etiquette.

On April 12 the students had an opportunity to try a German continental breakfast. The breakfast consisted of bread, sliced meat, cheese, butter, mustard and jam.

Instructor Melanie Folkerts says she likes to give students a chance to practice the food etiquette when eating in a foreign country especially Germany.

“The second reason I do this is because it is not the normal breakfast you would expect, it looks much more like lunch to us,” Folkerts said.

Freshman Evelyn Vallejo says she enjoys learning about the different customs Europeans have and found it interesting to see what a German breakfast is like.

“It gets the students out of their breakfast comfort zone and gets them involved in something very cultural,” Folkerts said.
