Heh reminds me of my grandmother who was German, I don't speak a word of it myself but no matter what she said to me it always sounded angry.

In Germany we might have strong words but its not as bad as Russian where not matter what they say they sound like they are about to end your life.

Haha. Saw this and others in the series (think there are 2 or 3 of them) a couple of months ago. My German colleagues found it hilarious.

How about Swedish? It's more pure language with a nice tone on the tongue.

Words in order by the video: #1 Flygplan,#2 Överraskning,#3 Fjäril,#4 Penna,#5 Tusensköna,#6 Ambulans,#7 Vetenskap,#8 Flodhäst,#9 Sex/Samlag,#10 Förlåt,#11 Sjukhus,#12 Cinderella? Either you mean it's a type of shoe or it's a cruisingship, aka Balletsko or Kryssning,#13 Kanariefågel.
