Over recent decades Germany has become a melting pot of different cultures. Some migration took place after World War 2 when migrants were needed to supply their skills to industry, while other migration has occurred as the European Union has grown. This has led to the less well-off members migrating to Germany and other affluent European Union countries to seek a better life.
It was in 2004, in the United Kingdom’s when the then Labor government decided to make the studying of foreign languages voluntary. This as expected, has led to a fall in demand by young people wanting to learn a second language. Just in the last decade learning French and German has fallen by 50 percent.
These days, social media has had a great effect on business customer interactions. Any companies who have mastered the most effective way of using social media have reaped huge benefits economically. A good example of this was throughout the 2016 Grammy awards when Arby’s sandwich outlet came out with a well-known joke that Pharrell, the singer’s hat, looked like their company logo by placing a tag on him in a tweet with the Grammys. As a result there were more than 83,000 re-tweets.
