“Banker” is a Language
By Charity Kuehn, Emanate Consulting
When I was a little girl, my grandparents had a friend from Germany named Kurt. Kurt would come to visit them almost every summer. He spoke English but he was difficult to understand; he spoke slowly and in broken sentences. Kurt was the sweetest person and never arrived for his visits without a gift for me—a small toy or doll from Germany or a special candy or chocolate. I loved to hear him talk because he was always so happy, and his accent was so entertaining, but most of the time I had no idea what he was saying.
