MARC TWAIN and GERMAN

Liebe StudentInnen,
Do you know what Mark Twain wrote about the The Awful German Language?
Twain knew German pretty well. And even if he called it 'awful,' he enjoyed studying German language and literature.
So go ahead and read about Freundschaftsbezeigungen, Dilettantenaufdringlichkeiten, and Stadtverordnetenversammlungen - and have a good time!

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
Mark Twain, Innocents Abroad
