Welcome to Herr Weiss' Deutsch in Real Life photo collage! In our English speaking world German is all around us all we have to do is open our eyes and find it. So here is where I post the pictures of anything and everything I come across that is in German or has to do with German and Germany, that I find in my travels. Feel free to add your own pictures especially if you are in my class and want extra credit!! Follow me on Twitter @PalmertonGerman and check out the website http://mrweiss.wikispaces.com
Every region of the country has a certain way of speaking. The accent and dialect can often be an obvious marker for where a person is from. For example, hearing a person speak who seemingly forgets the letter “R” while speaking is definately from Massechusetts and/or the Boston area. If someone refers to New Jerser as “Joisy” is most likely from New York City or New Jersey itself. But what about Pennsylvania? Did any one ever think we have have an accent? We do.
