Hi all! I'm excited to make my first post in the German Studio! 😊
What some of you may not know is that I'm based in Germany, and German is one of my acquired languages.
What really makes my heart swell with love for the German language — or any language for that matter — are regional details, the beautiful variety of ways that it can vary. Even the humble "Guten Tag!" comes in an array of forms depending on your region or even city! When I first came to Germany, I was commuting between Hamburg and Berlin and the differences started with "Moin!" vs "Juten!".
Here's a charming graphic came across from derweg.org that illustrates this nicely!
