Shopping Experience in Germany

Good evening to all! In German it means “Guten Abend”..some German words for tonight guys. I am sharing today some shopping experience in Germany. Let me tell you guys per my experience that sometimes when you go to the shops or stores not all cashiers or salesladies speak English. The first time I got here in Germany, I am always afraid to go shopping alone because most salesladies I encountered don’t speak English. At that time, I still don’t know a single word in German. It always makes me upset when I go to store, ask for something but nobody can help and answer me of my queries. I guess some can speak English but they are just afraid to say it because they might be thinking that they are speaking not the right grammar. Of course guys, I don’t say all people here don’t speak English. Just a reminder Germans are a bit nationalistic and they love their language.

Just last week, I called the hotline of an online shopping site here in Germany. I was complaining of a delivery of some items that I ordered online and are not delivered until now. I asked the customer service representative over the phone if she speaks English..And she answered, “Nein, leider nicht”. It means, “Sorry I’m not”…I ended up talking to her in German. At least, I can already speak German basically which I am happy about. I am planning to call again on Monday the same online store for some items that I want to clarify like area rugs, cupboards, dining table and some other more.

If you are planning to visit Germany, I would suggest that you learn a bit basic German language. I am not really obliging you to do it but for your ease of conversation, I guess it is of big help. I have to say bye for now..I’ll see you again tomorrow! have a lovely weekend to all!!
