Why we love German?
Awesome German guides in Barcelona
- Quick question. What’s the most spoken mother tongue in Europe? English? Spanish? French? Wrong! A whopping 16% of the European population speaks German, making it the continent’s most spoken first language. Surprising perhaps, but not as surprising as many German words’ very literal translations into English. In what other language would the word for gloves, “handschuh”, translate literally as “hand shoes”?
- So, German is a language that majestically gets to the point and yet it is also famous for having never ending words like, “kraftfahrzeughaftpflichtversicherung”! It’s a baffling language to anyone who doesn’t speak it as a native, and yet that’s what makes it so magical! We can’t think of any other language whose very vocabulary serves so well as a fantastic conversation starter!
- And yet, so many people do speak German as their first language! Aside from Germany, of course, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein also have the honor of calling it their official language. With so many speakers out there, it makes sense to bring you the best German guides in Barcelona!
