Great charisma!

Things are promising. You are curious, full of expectation, perhaps find the person standing or sitting in front of you attractive, but as soon as they open their mouth, it's over. In the same way, you may meet someone and simply be captivated. By the way they speak. The voice has enormous power. Ideally, it should match your appearance and underline your charisma.


Do you speak in dialect?

The language that surrounds us from an early age shapes us enormously. It isn`t without a reason that we call it our mother tongue. It accompanies us all our lives. Speaking a foreign language without an accent is often difficult. This can also be the case with High German. But it doesn`t have to be perfect High German. It is much more important to speak a language with which we can adapt to the situation and to our counterpart, and which we can still identify ourselves with.
