    Normal Germans: Die Kommentarsektion ist nun Eigentum der Bundesrepublik Deutschland
    Me, a refined intellectual, still German: Well that was quite interesting!

    Interesting to learn "christmas eve" and "christmas morning" refer to different days. Monday morning and Monday eve usually refers to the same day.

    most important sentences/words: "Bitte sprechen Sie langsamer" (please speak slower), "Was heißt auf deutsch?" (what is XYZ in German / how do you say XYZ in German?) "Ich habe dich/Sie nicht verstanden" (I didn't understand what you said / I didn't get the meaning), "Bitte nochmal" (again please), Bitte (please), Danke / [Danke dir/Ihnen] (thanks / [thank you]). Wie (how), Wo (where), Wann (when), Warum (why), Wer (who), Was (what) . and some nouns, like street, train, etc. With that in mind you probably can easily survive in an totally foreign environment. subject + verb (+ object) are enought to communicate so that someone is able to understand what you want. you dont really need grammar or articles to tommunicate. so don't hesitate to go out an try to speak to Germans. Cheers.

    Actually the roads aren't that broad because some of them are still from the middle ages or times where cars weren't a thing our public transport is just a way around it.

    I'm an American living in Germany too. I know this guy from when he lived here. I have some things I can add to how Germany is different from America:

    1. My first culture shock was at the grocery store. They scanned the items so fast and I didn't know I had to pack them into my own bag. It was a disaster.
    2. Pfand. Awesome.
    3. The grocery carts clip together and you have to use a coin to get a cart out and to get your money back you have to clip the cart back in. Super smart system.
    4. I love the bread here so much.
    5. Amazing healthcare system. And vacation days. Not selbstverständlich in the US.
    6. No air conditioning. Kill me. I go to the grocery store just to get some cool air.
    7. Deutsche Pünktlichkeit.
    8. Some places still don't accept credit cards.
    9. Most people wear neutral colors and most cars are neutral colors.

    Do americans really have a big problem with making friends with different political ideas? In Germany its completely normal to have conservative, socialist and libertarian friends at the same time
