Comments about your decision to study German

Recommended Posts

When I started German in college, one of my teachers, who was a graduate assistant, said when he decided to major in German there were a few people who thought that was weird and asked him if he was a Nazi.  I find that incredibly rude, but I have wondered from time to time if other people have gotten comments like that when people find out you are studying German.  I was in music, so it made more sense for me to study German, I guess some people think it is not a useful language outside the arts or something.

My interest for German started when I was just 14 years old.  I have fond memories of it :)  Because back then I wanted to learn it mostly because i wanted to understand the lyrics of my favorite band: Rammstein.  I couldn't afford a language course yet, so I bought a German dictionary that had a couple simple lessons inside.  I was so happy with it!
