    German is one of the most difficult languages to learn? FOR AMERICAN? What parallel reality do you live in, dear man? I understand if you said Hungarian, Polish or any Asian language. But German and English are from the same language family. In both directions, learning these languages is not at all difficult.

    I totally agree with everything you said in your video Conner! I am from Long Beach, California and I studied abroad in Oldenburg/Hamburg for a year from September 2017 to August 2018 and visited again this past June. The most common question that every German asked me was, why did you leave California for Germany? Are you crazy? Hahaha I always found it funny when I was asked this many times. I always had different responses but the main one was that it was my dream to visit Germany since I was 10 years old. I finally got to achieve my dream of visiting and living in Germany at the age of 22. I also learned German for 3 years in high school and 2 years at my university. Many Germans were surprised that an American could speak good German as they didn't really encounter this when they met Americans. I also picked up on a lot of slang during my year there which was cool as I would use the slang to surprise young Germans my age which made it easy for me to become friends with many of them. I made many friends in Germany and fell in love with the country. I can definitely say that Germany is my second home. I plan on applying to multiple universities throughout Germany and hope that I am accepted into one of the master's programs. I miss living in Germany and hope to return back to my second home in the fall of 2020. I say Moin Moin to all my fellow German YouTubers! I encourage any fellow Americans who might have a desire to visit, live, or study in Germany to go for it! Feel free to comment on this and ask any questions that you might have. I would be more than happy to share my experiences with everyone!

    Hey Connor, you could come and visit Trier. Its the oldest City in Germany and we have 9 UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe (dont know how to say it in english^^) places. I moved here 10 years ago and its the city of my heart! I absolutely love it and I would be happy to show it to you (+its 20minutes from Luxemburg and only approx. 1 hour to france) :)

    Hey Connor, I've been reliving my own unfulfilled life vicariously through your and Silas' videos, what I would have done back in the 70's when I was in my 20's and wanted to go live in Germany because I'd already taken German for 8 years by that time and spoke it pretty well. I ended up working a summer in Rottweil but my parents convinced me to go to med school because I had good grades, so poof! my dream vanished. Now as a retired doc at 70 I return every year for 4-8 weeks, drive around with friends, stay at Airbnb's, and visit my European relatives. I even took an advanced German course to update my 50 year old vocabulary along side of Arab, Chinese, Albanian, and Romanian immigrants who need to pass the TestDaF language qualification to get into the free universities in Germany. Even at the top level class many of them were still struggling with der, die, das, den, dem, und des, so don't feel bad. German is one of the hardest western European languages for English speakers. Only Finnish, Hungarian, and all the Baltic and Slavic languages are many times worse. Let me suggest a couple of things:

    [1] Get some formal tutoring or classwork to nail down the basic grammar rules early on so you don't make the mistake of learning constructions all wrong and keep repeating them because your followers find it cute or entertaining. For example, "alles die Leute" doesn't mean "all the people," alles = "everything" and all or alle mean "all." So alle Leute, all die Leute mean "all people and all the people." If you're saying everybody or everyone, it's just "alle." If you're sending a greeting "to everyone," Germans just say "allen" or "euch allen," not said the same as the guy's name either. That's a "dative plural" and so, ugh! you do need to learn some grammar! The meaning can be changed by using the wrong case or word gender or ignoring how the umlaut changes the pronunciation like in Eierlikör, saying "Eierlecker" unknowingly changed that eggnog to "ball/nut licker," but it did bring on a response in the comments!

    Remember our language 1000 years ago used to have this same hard grammar but after the Vikings (793) and then the French (1066) invaded England, two other languages came to influence Old Anglo-Saxon and to make it easier to understand each other, all the hard grammatical endings were dropped. So English is easier to learn by listening and repeating. Our extensive vocabulary from three original languages and our non-standard pronunciation not based on spelling are what make English difficult for foreigners since we haven't changed spelling very much since Chaucer's time. For nearly every silent "gh" in English you'll find a corresponding uttered "ch" in modern German. German has a table of 16 endings for 3 genders plus plural across the top and 4 cases down the side for all "the" words, another for all "a/an" words, and two more for weak and strong adjective endings. All of that went away in English but it's alive and well on a daily basis in German! Nail them down early on and you'll gain rapid confidence in your German.

    [2] Don't aim for a German passport but go for residency and if you stay for longer, then permanent residency. Germany would make you renounce your American citizenship for that passport and that's not a decision to be made on a whim unless you come from a country you'd never want to ever go back to again. You can get dual citizenship from Belgium after 5 years and there is a German speaking community just across the border there near Aachen. It's an area of Germany that was taken away from them as a punishment for WWI in the Treaty of Versailles, but the populace still speaks German. I enjoy visiting that area as it's beautiful.

    Sorry for the long post but I wanted to impart this info to you after watching this current video. Keep up the fun times!
