How To Be German

I just discovered a fantastic You Tube video channel called Get Germanised which aims to teach native English speakers all about the German language and culture. The videos on there are rather fun and cover everything from slang to how to make pumpkin soup.

However, two videos that caught my attention and had me laughing before I had even ingested any caffeine were How To Be German Part 1 & 2.  He nailed it.

Part 1

Part 2

And as a bonus, 10 Things I Hate About Germany.  The vast majority of things in this video annoy me too.

And to end things on a positive note, 10 Things I Love About Germany. This guy has lived in Australia, so he gets it.  Many of his reasons are why I’m still living here too.

    • Thought exactly the same. The guy seems to be really nice and has a great style to do videos, but in my opinion he uses way too much prejudices. Well … I’m german so maybe I shouldn’t complain and cannot rate this. But his very annoyingly loud noise is like a slap in the face. -_- It’s just the same old story and everyone tells us our language is loud, sounds brutal and annoying. I was a bit relieved he did a “10 things I love about germany video”

  2. Thanks for the reference to him … I just watched the video on ‘doch’ and its super helpful. Not that I can use it correctly yet, but at least now I have a clue.
