Anyone reading German stories ?

Recommended Posts

Guest orleans

I'm curious; I'm from Germany myself and would like to know if there are any people from other countries who like to read German stories in the NE-section or in general.... either just for fun or for trying to learn and improve their knowledge...

I know many German people (I include myself) who read English fics to get a better unerstanding of the language, but I haven't met anyone doing the same thing with the German language...

As I said, I'm curious laugh.gif

Hugs and cheers.gif

not a word. Except scheiße

LOL yeah, the most important word of all....

It's strange, no matter what language I learn, the swearwords are the words I remember the best whistle.gif

I've studied German for many years and know it fluently but I haven't gotten into any fanfics written in it yet. However, I have a Dutch fanfic writer friend and I've glanced a bit at some of her original stuff in Dutch. Might wander eventually though to read some of the fics of my favorite fandoms eventually though.

So you've studied German? I think it's a difficult language to learn; many of my fellow Germans have problems with the grammar. What did you think abot it when you stared studying?

Dutch XD

that's so cool, I'm from the netherlands too. I need to meet this friend of yours laugh.gif

And on topic: I think German and Dutch are two of the ugliest languages in existence. And I know alot of languages. Well, I'm not fluent in most of them, but I know what they sound like, know most of the beautiful words. I think the most beautiful language I know is Spanish. Just those two words stroke my inner most core: Llevame, Salvame blush.gif

Pfft you have bland tastes. Dutch and German are my two most favourite languages and they sound absolutely incredible to me. I'm quite fond of the idea of mastering all their sounds. Plus I find Romanic languages too soft and pansy :huh:

I would really like to read in German but I'm afraid I don't know enough at this point in time. It won't stop me from peeking every so often.

How ironic, I speak Dutch fluently and know a little bit of German and you don't. haha.

Seriously though, I make a statement and you reply by saying I have bad taste???

Fuck you.

Because knowing Dutch and German means you have more expertise on judging if they sound bad or not? And yes, yes I did. I believe you have bad taste. I also believe it's ridiculously easy to get you worked up enough to spout "Fuck You."

Or that you're pretty trigger happy with it.

Oh and, by the way. I said your taste was bland, not bad :)

Same thing

And I'm just pissed off at you, it justifies endless "fuck you"s

ich spreche ein bischen deutsch... ich hatte vier jahren in gymnasiam. ich denke deutsh kuehle sein, aber es hoeren gut nicht.

Anyway, that's all i could come up with... it's been six years since highschool and i'm drinking so you know how that goes...

I havn't read any stories in deutsch b/c i simply don't remember enough of it for it to be worthwhile, but i do practice japanese by translating doujin. same principle.

Yea, the grammar is intense but I think it has helped me a lot with my proper English too. :D It makes everything so much cleraer! I studied German in high school for four years then finished my BA in German in college with my BS in Computer Science. I also did two exchange trips, each in those respective schools. Hubby and I went to Europe last year and went all over the place including Germany, Austria, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia... to name a few. :) The taxi driver we had in Poland spoke better German than English so he just conversed with me that way and was rather surprised to find an American who spent time and money on the language (though I seem to get that from Germans too, even the German lady I spoke with at the Sequoia National Park in June).

And yes, ack... so long ago... I was very excited about the resulting stories in the Slashy Santa. My story kind of... well took off and went out of control. :D My Ardor in August story did not help much either so now I have another bunny prodding me!

My Dutch friend is actually on here too (known as Rhapsody) but we both are kind of flighty about making sure we get in here. So much to do! As for 'ugly' languages, I'd have to say Tagalog just sounds icky to my ears. Though I love my German! ^_^ Spanish is plain to me but then again I pretty much live in Little Mexico aka Southern California.

Of course I'm reading German stories( I am from Germany after all :( ); just not here because there is almost nothing to be found. That's the main reason I started reading in English.

Thats the main problem with German fics -there arent so many to be found on English websites since there aren't so many English-spreaking people knowing the German language as well. It's quite different the other way around.
