Thread: Hi from Germany

  1. #1

    Red face Hi from Germany

    Oh, just seeing that the last introduction post entitled like that was in 2010, so I guess I can re-use it.
    Hm what to say? I'm from near Düsseldorf and I studied English and Applied Linguistics at the University of Siegen. Last year I moved to where I'm living right now to start an apprenticeship in eventmanagement. I'm working at a cinema and I've worked as service staff at a cinema before that as a part-time job, so I guess I'll be stuck at cinemas forever. But I am hoping to go into the music biz at some point since I've been lucky to do internships at concert agencies before. I love travelling (I'm particularly fond of Ireland and Finland), attending concerts and hanging out with friends. Hmmm I guess that's it for the very moment? If you have any questions, shoot!

    Thanks heaps! =)
    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It's interesting but I don't really think I would want to do it all my life.

    Do you get to see the movies for free, or is that just some kind of myth? :P

    Hi! I am from the USA, but I enjoy German - I took German class for four years in high school, and I remembered it enough to get some college credit by passing a test years later :-) I thought it was funny that you wrote "eventmanagement" stuck together, because it looks like one of German's crazy-long and useful words like Fahrvergnuegen and Schadenfreude. And I visited Berlin for a week once, just bumming around and seeing touristy things like the Wall, the Reichstag, and those weird little casinos.

    Good luck with your cinema event management internship. I haven't been to many events at cinemas before, just a couple of movie premieres. What events do you have to manage? Do a lot of businesses/corporations rent out space in your cinema for company parties? (Keeping that one in my head for later - that sounds like a lot of fun!)

    Oh, and welcome to ADISC! I hope you enjoy your time here.

    Haha yeah I sometimes write it stuck together and sometimes not. =P Apparently the longest German word is Donaudampfschifffahrtselektrizitätenhauptbetriebsw erkbauunterbeamtengesellschaft. Haha.
    Ah and no, sadly, at our cinema we do not have that many events at the moment apart from previews and stuff. But about 2 weeks ago I had to organise something small; a candlelight dinner for a couple on our balcony. The couple had won a competition on our local radio; people could send their stories in about how they got to know each other, and the winning couple got that dinner and free entry to a particular film that evening. Was pretty cool but I'm sure hoping to get the chance to do bigger things in the future.

    One of my favorite manga/anime series.

    Anyway, welcome Dandelionwine. (I've always wanted to visit Germany, by the way. Hopefully I'll be taking a study abroad trip in a few semesters.)
