I can English (or mistakes Germans make when speaking English)

Hi guys,

I've stumbled across this channel yesterday and thought I'd share.

This might help some of you to understand Germans if they speak in a funny way.

The entire channel is about stuff like that.

German is very simmilar to broad Scots. We say waatar, you say wasser.

I miss Frankfurt. The Christmas market was great, 14 years old getting wasted on great German beer! And it was legal. XD

Take care & ride safe.

No it wasn't.

You've got to be 16 here to legally drink beer.

I'm sure if more native English speakers tried to speak German, they would make similar usage errors!

Some interesting ones I have heard from Germans speaking English (always the result of different construction in German than English):

"It feels me cold."

"That is a hell of money."

"Please send me the informations." "Do you have the datas?"

"The samples will be ready until June." (Actually means the sample will be ready by June or the samples will not be ready until June...misunderstandings can occur).

My daughter works for an Italian company and she finds similar interesting phrases used by them.
