You think? This is kind of funny, I am living in the U.S. and my impression is that almost all Germans, especially those who don't live here, rather have some kind of British accent, probably because they are still being taught British English in their schools. I say kind of, because it usually is not a real accent, rather a certain way to pronounce things that they think is British.

Yes, usually we get taught British English, it did not reach into my brain though. ^^ I have family in Minnesota, so that might play a part.

Nowadays, you study for those via app. Because you also have to watch videos.

I personally prefer when people dont change their natural accents I like to be able to hear where a person is from I think it adds character aswell

Why is that like that? I don't like British pronunciation very much. I also wonder why in Germany as well as Brazilian Portuguese is taught in courses and language apps and not the European Portuguese, which is spoken in Portugal... Why actually? There are some differences in grammar and words between the two languages. When Portuguese hear Brazilian Portuguese, it's a different dialect for them... I also wonder why that is. in Europe you should actually be taught the European Portuguese.

A small example: In European Portuguese "you" (in German that "du" ) means "tu". In Brazilian Portuguese : "você". Pronouncing "tu" in Brazil is very rude and a bit offensive...

For this reason maybe?
The Brazilian pronunciation sounds melodious and strong to unfamiliar ears, making it easier to understand and learn at first. European Portuguese is challenging for non-native speakers due to its weakened vowels, and you may not be understood across the Atlantic

sorry, the exact opposite is the case:
If you confuse tu with você in European Portuguese, the situation can quickly turn uncomfortable and you can come off as rude, or even aggressive.

I feel like it‘s more about geographical reasons. UK is just closer … But honestly, I have no idea. I have always had an American accent and can not talk in the British way, and also I get so confused with the spelling. I just mix everything up.
Zitat von ProjectSerpoProjectSerpo schrieb:in Brazil is very rude and a bit offensive...
I don‘t really speak any other language anymore, but I don‘t think English has any of these differences, I can‘t think of anything that would be offensive in either of the countries. However, there are some things that just have a different name.

I love this video as an example, I almost always use the American pronounciation expect for missile.

Hello, I am just passing by claiming the first and so far only red post in this category by a Mod (and therefore probably the first one in English? Not sure about that one though).
And yes, I checked every thread in this category for this :D
Thank you for your attention. Please continue as you were.

Go to one of your local driving schools and ask for study material. They will either have it in paper form or it will be online.
