As Mark Twain put it:
I don’t believe there is anything in the whole earth that you can’t learn in Berlin except the German language.
Any non-native German speaker will tell you the process of learning the language can be pure torture. From the never ending sentences (let alone words) to the grammar that just doesn’t seem to make any logical sense – but that’s not to say that Deutsch goes without its charms. For such a harsh sounding language to outside ears, it definitely has its quirks and humor built in, so let’s take a second to appreciate how cute and funny some everyday German words can actually be.
