German dialects - a game

During the last nine months I wrote blog posts about 9 different German dialects. I hope you enjoyed them, because now it’s your turn.

I found this wonderful German, Austrian and Swiss dialect card on Expedia.de which I was allowed to embed on my blog and which lets you play with some dialects. Click on ‘Entdecken’ and you can then click on various points to hear a German sentence said in the dialect of that area. If you want to guess a dialect, click on ‘Spielen’. You then hear a sentence and see four options to click. Where, do you think, does that dialect come from?

Enjoy!

    German dialects are aweful. German dialects Living in Baden (a part from the Bundesland Baden-Würtemberg) all I can understand is Badisch and Hochdeutsch. It would be enough to travel 50 km northwards and I couldn’t understand a word of schwäbisch. 50 km eastwards i’d have to understand Bayrisch which is even worse and 50 km southwards I’d have to understand swiss-german whih is the living hell (impossible to understand).

    • Hi Gio! This is a problem all foreigners have when they move to a new country – any country. As a native German speaker I don’t understand a lot of those German dialects just as I don’t understand many English dialects, despite having lived in the UK for over 30. Those are the joys of languages ☺
