By Awesome - Russian Federation
Today, I found out that I was moving to Germany. I'm going to be put back a year in school because of the system change. I also don't speak a word of German. Why? Because my mother wants to brag about this experience to her friends. FML

I'm not seeing the FML... Germany after the war was broken up into 4 quarters. East was controlled mainly by Russians since the late 80s or 1990. Last time I was in Berlin it felt like little Moscow.

Germany is a beautiful place. Also, you can catch on to some of the German words rather quickly, due to some of them being spelled so closely to the English spelling. By the way, no trolling, but I think the Audubon is the only part of Germany where there is an unrestricted speed limit.

ROFL @41. AUTOBAHN! Which actually means highway, motorway... You can't drive at unlimited speed on all of the auotbahn, although most of it is unlimited :)

There are more highways where you could go As fast As your car lets you but above 130km/h (+- 80m/h) your insurance doen't pay put when you total your car or someone elses. Sorry for the bad english but i'm Dutch;)

ask if u can stay with a relative back at home!!!!! aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins?! if not and ur 18- go rent an apartment. seriously come on man!


Yeah, because every teenager's dream is to drink heavily and drive 120 mph (or, excuse me, the equivalent in kph).

Or maybe some young adults actually give two shits about their lives.

Actually over 60% of the Autobahn is restricted...but that's not to say the speed limits are low.

OP, Germany is an awesome country. If you have to move internationally, that's the place to go. Otherwise just put your foot down.

That's because all european countries are quite near each other and very much rely on each other for support, hence the necessity of knowing English, along with a few others
The reason Americans only know English is because the US and (most of) Canada speak English so for the most part English is all we'll ever need, as a Minnesotan I don't need to learn "Iowanian"
Also English is the most universal language in at least the Western world, if not the world

Most Germans actually speak very fluent English, but choose not to..idk why but it's just that way
I actually have a lot of german relatives so no offense to any Germans, but that's actually what happened to me when I visited Germany

Working as a cashier i have still find a german who speak english.. When i ask 'cash or credit?' they answer in german. When i ask if they need help, they answer in german.. This happen both in england and norway.. So.. Good luck op!!


Regardless of whether they can or not, that won't help OP much when he needs to sit his exams in German. Moreover, I can imagine his peers and teachers would much prefer to speak in their native tongue rather than changing to accommodate him all the time.
