In session 17 we start to talk about interesting people from the Leipzig area. Our first example is Karsten and Katrin Leuthold. They have a son who''s name is Juan. He is 15 and wants to go to school in England for one year to gather new experiences. Katrin and Karsten are surveyers or highway engineers and they run their own survey comany.
People who have their own enterprise are called entrepreneurs. The Leutholds employ a number of engineers who work as a team on different projects in Saxony and other parts of Germany. They have even received an offer from a company in Dublin and they soon will fly to Ireland for negotiations. This will be the first international project for their team and it''s a good chance to expand.
In their free time they go SCUBA diving. Katrin says it is exciting to see the great wealth of underwater life. She has taken photos of her underwater trips in Morocco and they are very impressive.
Do you know what the abbreviation SCUBA stands for? Yes, you are right, it''s "self-contained underwather breathing apparatus". If you want to learn more about SCUBA diving and construction sites in Saxony you should come to our English class in Leipzig.
See you there!
