I’m at Gran Canaria right now and there’s a bunch of german people here. My question is: why doesnt german people know a single word in english???? Not even thank you, hello etc ...

Only old people or east germans spend vacation on spanish islands. So poor education seems to be the answer
2019-02-18 22:17
Gran Canaria is for old people. Teneriffe not so much

poor education in germany OK

Old people learned no or really shitty english cause they didnt live in a globalized world and didnt need it. Also germany has bad education for a country with that influence and economy especially in north and east germany
2019-02-18 22:35
East Germany is really that bad comparing to West?
2019-02-18 23:04
It definitely lacks behind, the communists rekt the economy completely, they needed a lot of help when we reunited and they are still not there
2019-02-18 23:12
Well, probably still better than Poland LUL

that's because u are even further to the east keepo

Quite sad for a modern country like ours, that so many people, even my young age, cant speak english properly. + the german accent in english is shitty as fuck

Depends. I live in southern germany and even uneducated people (realschule or even less) can communicate. But in eastern germany it is horrible and even in northern germany it is still pretty bad
2019-02-18 22:21
I do too, but in my class (Gymnasium) many many people were so bad in english. Mostly foreigners, like children of turks, croatians etc, but they count as german so...
2019-02-18 22:27
English education is relatively equally distributed in Germany. Its still shit imo but the young generation with a higher education can communicate properly.

I live in Potsdam, and the Englisch standard is quite high id say, but i have to admit that my high school is a pretty good one(renowned gymnasium) As far as i perceive it, nowadays there isnt that big of a differnce between east and west in terms of education Inb4 im not an gdr child, father west Berlin, mother hessen
2019-02-18 23:27
I'm from the north and can confirm, too many people don't give a fuck about English here so they never really learn it

We hate other people we are only nice if we have some kind of relationship to the person and see an advantage by being nice. Why you can't even speak a single German word? I like my native language more than English.

2019-02-18 22:33
Yeah but i always were unlucky with teachers. Mostly they didnt like immigrants (and no its not a excuse that every teacher who gave me bad marks is a nazi lmao) and it was much more difficult to proof myself. But in the end god and karma handle everything from alone anyways i will go to sleep good night bro

I dont care about the feelings of immigrants. They should cry all day if they dont get the self-esteem they need it is their own problem. If they need a Turkish flag or a Führer, they get no respect. The same also for German Nazis. All the same kind of people without self-esteem. They don't deserve respect.

I understand, but if u go to work to for example Edeka distribution centre, where everyday are so many LKWs comming there and 70% of them are not from Germany, you should know even 'basic transport english'...

I understand it is annoying but if you deliver very often in the same countries you can learn the basic transport word in their language. Also at Edeka etc most of the workers are not highly educated. So they see no motivation to learn it if they speak 4 sentences with the driver.
2019-02-18 23:05
I just have been few times, and for my comfortable work i have learned some words (laden, abladen, warten etc.) Just didnt expect that so many ppl in Your country cant speak english. Thanks anyway.
2019-02-18 23:13
Like 90% below the age of 40 can. I bet you just face people with low education. Or they are just old
2019-02-18 22:56
Once i heard from woman about 30yo in Edeka magazine that if im in Germany, i have to speak german... Is that comes from that you hate Poles or wtf... Maybe u have right i faced low education ppl but she was so aggresive to me bcoz i cant speak german...
2019-02-18 23:09
Most people dont think like she does. In which part of german did this happen?
2019-02-18 23:10
Edeka in Eching i guees but i'm not sure now, also ive been in DMK Deutches Milchkontor in Zeven or Georgsmarienhutte, nobody can speak english there
2019-02-18 23:19
Then it should have been the education. For example in my family even my grandma and her friends can speak english

2019-02-18 22:57
This is a stupid question, ofc they know at least the simple words except for the older people maybe
2019-02-18 22:59
It surprised me actually. And yes, I’m talking about old people in this case. An old man at the bar asked me (in german) what the name of my drink was, i answered him the name of it in english but he couldnt understand...
2019-02-19 01:42
I mean, Gran canaria is one of those places where many germans go to when on holidays so a lot people there speak german. Therefore, it attracts even more germans that don't speak english cuz where else can they go
2019-02-18 23:17
