What do you mean, not all men sit down to pee?

I am Niklas, a 27 year old German, currently studying and living in Copenhagen. I’ve spent more than 2 years building new ventures and in my spare time I have a fable for surfing, art and chocolate. How and where did you get the idea for your book “German Men...

The Dscherman

I am from Bavaria, so Germany didn’t seem so far (laughs – ed.). No, it’s just the fact that I am from here, so I know a lot of stuff you practically can’t know as a foreigner. For example: In 1998 1. FC Kaiserslautern won the Bundesliga, after qualifying for...

German sounds

You know, German grammar is rather difficult, but phonetics not at all…. So here it goes… The combination of sounds “i.e.” should be pronounced long, in NO case short, otherwise, it can lead to misunderstanding. Once I was in a party and was asked about my family. In this small talk...

True Russian

During my first months in Germany, I once introduced myself as “Ich bin eine saubere Russin” (I am a clean Russian – ed.). All I wanted to say was that I was a true Russian… 😉

Interest to integrate

My name is Swantje and I am from Cologne. When I was a child I wanted to become a stewardess just because I was eager to travel everywhere and see the world.  I think Germany is becoming more and more multicultural and if you show your interest to integrate, it...

Am I crazy or what?

My name is Kendall and I am an American, originally from the Washington DC area. I met my now German journalist husband in New York City where he was assigned at the time. When he said he was being called back to Germany, I volunteered to go with him. Back...

I have become too German

I came to Germany from Great Britain more than 40 years ago as a volunteer with the program called “Help your brother” and stayed for good. Most of the time I was a school secretary in Michaelshoven. I definitely feel integrated into the society, mainly through sport, my voluntary work and...

American sense of humor

It’s all German to me

Are Germans too different from Canadians? Oh yes they are. Somehow they are more socialists, they care more about each other and I like that. They also have a lot of rules for everything, but honestly I prefer to have more rules than no rules. What surprised you most about Germans?...
