What really are the differences between German(s)??
I am shit at languages. I have just been told that I need to move my butt over to Vienna for 6 months. I had a German maternal grandmother so I speak about 30 words of German. I did a single course of beginners at college, so learnt 30 words more and some cases. Maybe I am stupid (well I am), but how different is the German in Austria from anything I might have heard?
If anyone can help, I will be eternally grateful!06 ago 2005, 03:00 Anonymous
well i'd say at least you know that austrian is different )
but everyone capable of communicating in german gets along in austria. just: being too german (!!) might result in slight prejudices from the locals. my recommendation: get an austrian friend to teach you a handful of typical phrases and sayings (including swearwords) and you will be ok. have fun! here some examples:
- oida, halt's maul!
- bist du deppert!
- i glaub i spinn!
try to figure out what that means... to check your austrian.Anonymous 06 ago 2005, 12:48 - Denunciar
hi guys, i believe there is not much of a difference, not in language! consider it as a kind if dialect or whatever - inside germany you may also find great differences in the "german". however, the greater difference is with people, that`s my opinion.Anonymous 09 ago 2005, 10:48 - Denunciar
