German has a reputation. Having spent a great deal of time in Canada, I know that German is perceived as a terrible sounding language. Irish comedian Dylan Moran says in one of his routines that, “German sounds like typewriters eating tinfoil being kicked down stairs.” where does this idea come from? Probably from all the war movies out there where one only hears angry commands coming from German soldiers. If most people encountered English only as it comes from the Drill Sergeant’s mouth in Forrest Gump, English would probably have an equally bad reputation. However, this notion of German is completely wrong. German in all its thirty plus dialects is often a very musical language.
