We have to write an essay about an ethical problem in our daily life as an professional. About a month ago I was sitting in our kitchen in our small pivate practice. My colleague steped to me and stated: “Oh no, no is coming Mrs. T. who doesn’t speach any German, they should learn German when living here, you can’t explain them anything.” I didn’t know how to react on this. Shall I say something or not?
On one hand I understand my colleague, it is difficult sometimes; but on the other hand do I think it is possible to explain with the hands and showing the exercises. It was not the first time she said something and I think she treats them with less motivation. My colleague doesn’t have any problems with persons living here from different countries, she just have difficulties when they don’t speak German.
