#88: Oh! You’re English!?

Prepare to be accosted by drunks, random weirdo’s and colourful students whom, upon hearing you are native  English will spend the next 5 minutes earnestly practicing the only English they know with you.

You will have almost daily conversations that are exactly the same, as these people use up their high school English and then fumble around for sporadic words that make no intelligible conversation.

I complain, but seriously if they weren’t invariably drunk, or crazy, I would think it was cool that people so willingly dive into English and want to speak to you using it, they sometimes make you feel like a minor celebrity such is the rarity of the native Englishman in Germany.

I will certainly not be doing the same with my German, unless I am drunk, of course.
