Speaking German lingo is amazingly cool and if you are one of the people out there that can do it, good for you! A lot of German's lingo is complicated for American speakers but there are many cultures who take the time to learn since Germany is such a wonderful and incredible place! Harry Houdini is a famous American magician who loves Germany so much that he said, "I think that in a year I may retire. I cannot take my money with me when I die and I wish to enjoy it, with my family, while I live. I should prefer living in Germany to any other country, though I am an American, and am loyal to my country." Monica Crowley described the strength and resilience of Germany by saying, "Germany was beaten after World War I, but it didn't take long for it to rise again as a much more malignant threat. The end of World War II was not to be a compromise; it was to come about from the total annihilation of the enemies' ability and will to make war." Priyanka Chopra, a famous actress who is engaged to marry Nick Jonas, spoke about the fact that America's view on art needs to eventually reach Germany's level when she said, "Art should not be bound by barriers or language. The Hindi film industry is a testament to that. We speak only Hindi, but we premiere in Germany and Japan. Our films do phenomenally well there. We transcend the barriers of language and culture. We welcome you in. I think that's what art should be, and I hope America reaches that place." Take this quiz on German lingo and see how much of it you know!
