how to survive in Germany, Deutschland without cultural barriers, best and worst of Germany
Today I had a very nice Nachmittag with a friend of mine. She is German. And yes, you can have friends in Germany, contrary to what people said when they found out I was about to move to Germany. And yes, they can be Germans, your friends.
That kind of time when you open your hearts. A little bit. Like windows, for some fresh air. But only a little and for a very short time, like in winter. That no too much cold and wind comes in. Just in case.
Anyway, I suddenly realised that I can say a thought in two different ways in German. Wow, I thought. I checked in my mind. Yes, both correct and yes, it is a fact.
But instead of being too excited, I found myself thinking that is rather complicated. Because now I think which way is more correct to use.
This dilemma does not happen in my mothers tongue. Even when I can say the same thing in ten ways.
