how to survive in Germany, Deutschland without cultural barriers, best and worst of Germany

How German sounds compared to other languages

That is why I kept saying for years “there is no force to make me learn German”.

Statements like that are pulling god by his moustache.

And there are always consequences. Believe me.

    This made me laugh out loud! Krankenwagen said in an angry way is one of my favourite words ever! Might show it to my students tomorrow – there are no Germans in my class so it’ll be safe 😉

    BTW: Nobody except Adolf the Burnable spoke that way 🙂

    Is Mr. the Burnable what I think? 😉 And if he is then there is at least one person who speaks in the same manner too!!!

    Adolf the Burnable, Adolf/Addi der Brennbare = Adolf H. from Braunau, Austria, yes 🙂

      Oh God. I watched a preview of that movie while at work (I think it might have been a different one to this, I’m too scared to watch). Biggest mistake ever! They showed him butt naked – front view. I was just lucky nobody saw what I was watching… at least, I HOPE they didn’t! I quickly closed the window. But I was scarred for life after that. xD

        I remember there was a wordwide scandal when in the deepest world financial crisis moment BBC or CNN was making a live news report from one of the banks and the viewers could see that one of the bankers was watching naked women on his computer. Sorry to scare you more 😀 😀 😀 😀

        LOL I remember that! No that’s fine. I just have to be more careful with what videos I click on at work. 😛

    I had to contain my laughter as I was at work but I have to agree with Hauke – most Germans don’t talk so angrily. Not the normal ones, anyway. LOL

    Miss Z thanks for your referral to the movie attached! In fact I was notified with Haukes comment on my WordPress app on my mobile therefore I only saw the words and no movie.

    Hauke thanks for sharing the movie. It is the first time I come across someone who looks German and jokes about Adolf The Same! All German seem to take his name far too seriously or avoid the topic which happens mostly.

    I have learned to avoid the WWII topic also when with Germans.

    Don’t mention the war …

    Would you please stop talking about the war?
    But you started it!
    We didn’t start it!
    Yes, you did, you invaded Poland!
