But I have to admit that it can be hard to get to know some German. When I was in the US I got to know so many people, bevause everybody came up to me and talkes to me. But Germans are usually not that way. Except for when we're drunk.
surprisingly it was the same with me. In the west coast just walking the streets in the morning people would stop and go "good morning"... I was speechless I mean even in my hometown if go around greeting complete strangers you will most likely get insulted.
As far as germans go I've had a bunch come up at me and start saying something but when I reply sprechte spanische englische? they just fuck off
so yeah I suppose you need to know german fluently to get along with people here but then again if you chose berlin to come and live and expect to go by without learning german it's kinda retarded
