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

REALLY REALLY BAD: superlonggermanwords

Some German words are unbelievably long. Sometimes I look at them and think that the space bar broke. One of the frustrating things in the beginning of learning German. 

Some of the best examples I have collected in the recent months:

  • Vorwartsentwicklung
  • Schwingungsintensität
  • Verabscheuungswürdig
  • Untersuchungsrichteramt
  • Entscheidungsmöglichkeiten
  • Durchschnittssatzbesteuerung

It was very difficult in the beginning to figure out from which side I should even start reading a word long like this. But with the time I have learnt that you should just read words one by one without breathing.

German language provides good training for staying longer under the water in case needed. Maybe even for pearls.
