hello everybody so today I wanted togive you another video where I teach you survival insert language I've already done one video in Korean but today I shall teach you some survival travelGerman but before we get into that though are you new to my channel? welcomemy name is Janice and I make videos talking about languages, languagelearning.
I've made videos talking about the differences between Swiss German andGerman I've made videos talking about living in Switzerland what's it like I've made videos about Korea.
I've made videos talking about cultural differences, language differences if any or all of that sounds interesting to youwhy not stick around as I'm pretty sure I've mentioned in my survival Korean video, I am of the firm belief that if you are going to a country for two weeksa month or any sort of short amount of time you don't NEED to learn the entirelanguage however if you MOVE to a new place then I definitely think you shouldlearn the language as you are only one person and the place you're going to is an entire country and new culture and new language and therefore to be able tointegrate properly into the country learning the language is prettyessential even if you think that people will just be able to speak English to you that definitely probably rings true for a lot of countries if not all countries however there will still be people that don't know English or a second language and people tend to (if you're in their home country) feel a lot more comfortable with a person if that person is able to speak their nativelanguage in total there are six countries that have German listed as their official language which are and yes I have to look this up I don't knowthis by heart Austria, Belgium, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Switzerland according to Google there are over 220 million German speakers in the world so that means if you even know a few phrases of German you'll be able tocommunicate with German speakers just a little bit more personally I'm of the belief that there are seven phrases that you should know if you go to a countryand those phrases are actually pretty simple and easy to learn so those sevenphrases is what I'll be teaching you today when you meet somebody for thefirst time you want to greet somebody to be able to say hello in German you sayhallo that's the most basic one we also have Guten Tag Guten Tag is a little bit more formal andHallo is a little bit more informal I think if you go to a shop you're more likely to say Guten Tagthen you want to say Hallo but I'm pretty sure you can use itinterchangeably next up we have thank you I'm the kind of person to say thankyou probably a bit too often but I think you know better be to polite than impolite so in order to say thank you in German you would say thank you Danke if you want to be a little bit more polite and say thank you as opposed tothanks which can be very casual you can say Danke schön if you're are sat in a restaurant and you would like to point to the menu and say “this oneplease” how would you say that in German? well there's two parts of this there's the “this one” and the “please” first I'll teach you how to say “this one” this one in German there's different ways of saying it if you know a little bit of German orI've had to study German in the past you will know that in English THE in German has three counterparts: Der being masculine Die being feminine and Das being an object or objective however if you are not learning Germanor if you haven't studied German or even if you have studied German it can bevery difficult to know which noun has which gender I'm gonna go ahead and say gender I'm not sure if that's the correct terminology used because I personally don't know how to say it I'm gonna use gender so it could be but I think the most general onethat kind of works for all meals or dishes would be DIESES the objective one so if you are at a restaurant you can point to the menu and say DIESES when thewaiter asks you which one you would like to have we've already had thank you so how do you say please in German? please in German would be translated to BITTE with our knowledge of saying this and please to say “this one please” so wecan say DIESES BITTE how do you say sorry in German? sorry in German is ENTSCHULDIGUNG another very importantthing of course it's hard to say yes and no so in order to say yes in German youwould say JA to say no in German you would say Nein it sort of sounds like the English word for the number nine how would you say toilet in German? toilet is very similar to the English word in German toilet in German means toilette or if you would like to put itinto a sentence last but not least how do you say goodbye in German? goodbye in German is translated to auf wiedersehen to recap so those are the seven phrases that I personally believe are the mostimportant ones to learn when you're traveling do you have a different opinion? do you think that there are different phrases that are more essential to learn what going traveling? if you have any ideas of things that Ishould add to these videos let me know down in the comments but until then this is the end of the video I hope you enjoyed it if you did you can stick around until when I make a new one I hope you drink lots of water, get lotsof sleep and this is the end bye bye.
