Sehr interessant! Ich bin zweisprachig aufgewachsen, mit Deutsch und Russisch. Wobei Deutsch meine Wohlfühlsprache ist. Wenn ich Russisch spreche, habe ich immer einen leichten Deutschen Akzent. Als ich ich jedoch eine Weile in England gewohnt habe und dann wieder mit jemanden aus Deutschland Russisch sprach, sagte man mir das ich jetzt eine Englischen Akzent im Russischen habe.

It was so nice to see I understand what you are talking about even though you were speaking in German. Congrats on the podcast & keep up the good work! :D

Another fun show! It was interesting that Jay thought that his English had a German accent. To my ears Jay's English is VERY American sounding, and in regular conversation I would never guess that he spoke another language. Feli's English is so good and her accent so slight that even though I would guess that she was bilingual, I couldn't tell what the other language was exactly. And without knowing I would guess that English was her native language, but maybe her parents were from a different country. When you were all puzzled with the fact that American schools asked about race, I can understand that you would think that it was racist to ask, but I believe that the origin of asking about race in school or government forms is actually meant to counter-racism. Your discussion touched on the idea that sometimes racism is inherited, invisible, and quietly accepted. And one problem is that some regions may not openly express it, but many people make assumptions and have stereotypes about other races. And often they may treat people of different races with inequality without thinking about it, or ever questioning it. But one way to begin to analyze race bias first requires knowing how many people are different races, and what races they are before you can quantify inequity. Admittedly, the classification is poor. Here Asian includes all people from Asia, except that Russia is seen as European, and they would be classified as white/caucasian. But Indian is lumped together as Asian, along with Japanese and Chinese, which makes no sense. Jay provided a nice twist/extension of your regular show, instead of looking across the divide and similarities of cultures, being equally American and German in most ways. Except the house slippers and metric measurement of course.

Speaking of there being a "special type of racism" in the US, and it being much more of an issue on the news in general: I saw an interview with Denzel Washington a while back, and he was saying that he thinks that while there definitely is racism, he also thinks that a lot of what we lump into the racism category is actually culture-clash, because the majority of the black population in America is raised under fairly significantly different cultural norms. He said something about how a lot of black folks have no interest in trying to integrate culturally. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I'm under the impression that black people in Germany and Europe in general are culturally integrated. As far as I know, they don't have their own separate customs, norms, speech patterns, etc. that specifically come from their being raised in a black family. I decided that I agree with Denzel Washington that there probably wouldn't be as much racial tension in the US if there wasn't also that cultural divide.

Hey, you can try the yt-channel "Easy german - learn german from the streets". It's pretty good for german learners. They only speak german, but with german subs, so you can read it, too.

@Thomas Kalbfus I am sorry but you know nothing, less than nothing actually as you know lies. But The converting people in other lands and missionaries are Christians and not the Catholic Church. Also Christians and regular Jews have at most 3 Children while The Catholic Church pushed for lots of kids for reasons of growing the religion and being in the wills of all the old and faithful in the time of death and The Orthodox Jews have huge families as its kind of like a gang.

@God Worden its about more than that. Jews grow their religion by having children, Catholics grow their religion by seeking converts. As for Germany, supposedly in the decade before the rise of Hitler and the Nazis, it was a majority Christian country. How religious were those Catholics and Protestants? Apparently not too religious it seems, because it would be hard to explain the rise of Hitler if they were. I think a lot of what Hitler did goes against Christian teachings, particularly in the disregard for human life.

The Catholic Church is opposed to abortion, and contraception, that is why and of course they love to have sex just like everyone else. I agree with them, I am willing to give the fetus the benefit of the doubt whenever possible about personhood. As most Catholics are not priests, monks, or nuns, they tend to have more children.

50:00 - There actually is a US Federal law now that questions about race are supposed to allow checking multiple boxes, but there are a ton of old forms out there that just don't get updated, and there are actually a lot of people who don't know about it as well. I'm slowly starting to see it more, but it is definitely taking decades to become commonplace.

Thank you for sharing your discussion! The gymnasium is probably similar to AP/honors/IB programs in high schools here in USA as those classes tend to be more challenging. I always thought those race boxes when taking tests or filling out applications were optional. Speaking of racism between US and Germany, I recently listened to an interview of Esther Anumu Fordham on youtube and it was intriguing to me. She is Afro-German who grew up in Weimar era (her father is from Togo) in the cosmopolitan city of Hamburg. She then married an American after WWII and moved to the USA and after living and working here for 30 years opted to retire back in Germany. She even stated somehow she never felt comfortable in USA the same way she did in Germany as a person of color.

That thing Jay Samuelz mentioned about rhetorical questions is 100% a problem I have with my German boyfriend as a Frenchman too. We also throw questions around that are not meant to be answered by those who hear them. x) Also, people, never dumb your speech down and adapt it to other people's mistakes; it's not on you if they don't want to learn and, if they feel attacked by it, they need to check their self-esteem.

As for the spelling: you could decide for one spelling pattern, either AE or BE, but then you had to be consistent. So, once you decided for color, you also had to go for neighbor etc. And blatant Briticisms in your text (to go pear-shaped, biscuits etc.) were going to be marked off, too.

Being bilingual is different depending on whether you're an only child, or have siblings. Bilingual children with bilingual siblings tend to engage in a lot of automatic switching between the languages, in mid-paragraph, sometimes mid-sentence, occasionally even in the middle of a word (particularly with cognates, but also compound words). Without the bilingual siblings, this is much less likely to happen.

Both my brother and I were raised by the threat of the belt for spanking from my father. My brother actually got spanked a few times as he was more likely to act out than I. We both turned out pretty well. Both of us raised our kids without physical punishment. We talked about why. We really didn't know why we didn't spank. We both thought our parents were very fair with punishments. Actually we thought main reason was that we were somewhat weak, didn't want to cause ourselves any psychological pain from inflicting physical pain on our kids. All of our children turned out well. I wonder why other parents out there made the decision to spank or not?

I honestly don't remember ever having to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance before 9/11. After 9/11 it became mandatory. In fact, there was a supreme court ruling stating that it is unconstitutional to force students to salute or recite the Pledge of Allegiance. You can find that case here.

Well that guest was a very nice surprise. I have been following Jay for a couple of years now and absolutly adore him. Such a talented rapper, with sadly not that much original music, but that's alright, I know he's a perfectionist and has a lot of other stuff to do. The regular Jay & Arya content is so great not only because it's about movies but because of their friendship and funny way of communicate with each other, same for the podcast btw but with switching topics. But then they're also creating such impressing movies themselves and I am just excited to see what will come in the future in general but especially next, because they're actually working on something new right now. Your conversation with him was very interesting but entertaining as well.

13:09 - The hat thing is because historically it was considered rude and/or impolite to wear a hat indoors. That's why you're still not supposed to wear a hat in church, or at formal occasions, and why people remove their hats when saying a prayer or the Pledge of Allegiance. Despite the fact that school buildings are so large in most places now, they've still held onto that. Hats also make it harder to identify people, so that might also be a factor. It's hard enough to remember students as it is.

I love this series/podcast. I studied German in high school and a few semesters in college, and this show has inspired me to back into learning it again. As a native West Virginian, I can confirm I have seen a few people giving their babies Mountain Dew in bottles, but it’s only been a handful of times in my many years living in Appalachia (pronounced “apple-at-chuh,” by natives, not “apple-eh-shuh” =D). A lot of the stereotypical dental issues people hear about in other parts of the country are caused primarily by economic difficulties and lack of access to proper dentistry. Unfortunately, food that’s bad for you is much cheaper than food that’s healthy. Life expectancy is statistically lower here too because of healthcare access. The disparity between the American healthcare system and that of Germany is sometimes infuriating. I wish the US system was much more like Germany’s. It’s so interesting to hear people from Europe and America talk about the topic of race. Even as an American, the race question on forms has always bothered me. I’m primarily of Scottish and Dutch ancestry, and I usually just put “other” or “Northwest European American” to mess with them. From what I understand, those questions are on applications and forms as a means of “tracking demographics” for the Census Bureau. I don’t feel it’s something that should be asked, and I feel like gender is another item that shouldn’t be on those forms. Although I have no idea what the German thoughts are on gender identity. Thank you so much for this podcast! Thank you especially for the German portion of this episode. I watched it a few times without subtitles and once with them. I was surprised at how much I understood even though I haven’t spoken German with anyone in over a decade.

41:30 The percentage of the final grade that was made up by the participation grade even differed from class to class. I had one German teacher who even put participation over exams (at around 60%). I don't think I have to mention how much I hated her guts... But 40 or 50% were quite normal I would say (until 12th grade, then suddenly nobody gave a f*** anymore).
Regenbogen Träumerin
It was the same in my school. Usually it was somewhere between 30 and 50 % but rarely even a little more or less and it differed from teacher to teacher, between classes (in the 'Nebenfächer' like religion, music etc participation usually was more important as there were less exams/tests) and between grades. From grade 11 onwards it went down to about 10 to 20 %.

The request for race on American forms includes requests for sex and ethnicity. There is nothing nepharious about it. Firstly, there is always a box you can check off that you indicate you decline to answer. Secondly, it is just for statistical purpose. Sometimes the data is sold to companies that use it for marketing purposes or it is just used in research.

The US basically asks about race on forms for exactly the opposite reason as the Nazis. The US wants to measure whether efforts to reduce segregation in the workplace are working. They do the same thing with gender. There would be no way to measure the "glass ceiling" without statistics on men and women, for example. Statistics on race were a big part of determining that the public housing projects in Atlanta were not working, so they decided to tear down "the projects" and instead have these unemployed families move in to apartments and small homes next to people who were not part of the projects. Sociologists found that simply seeing other people going to work and improving their lives provided a lot of encouragement for them to do the same. When they were surrounded by people who didn't have jobs, they grew up not really even knowing how things could be better. I mean, there are whole books written on the subject, but that's the gist of one example. EDIT: I guess I'll add that basically the US is basically an ongoing series of sociology experiments, trying to find the best ways for different races to get along, due to their being such a large mix. In California there was a study that found that hispanic children from families where one or both of the parents didn't learn English were much more likely to fall into a life of crime than those from families where the parents did learn English and attempted to integrate into "American" culture, rather than just live among other Mexicans and South Americans, and avoid everyone else.

I always think that at some point there will be an episode where I think: This is not so good! But so far that hasn't happened. ;-) I found a lot of things very interesting, for example that what you learn is obviously connected to the language you learn it in. I often watched English TRvid videos to learn something new. And then I found that I can then explain these things very well in English, but less well in German. It's like the knowledge is only available in the English area of my brain. ;-) I also found the conversation about prayers before class and what influence that might have, very interesting. As known from advertising, we end up believing things that don't have to be true, but if we hear them often enough. I look forward to the next podcast. And thanks to Jay for the insights into the life of someone who grew up bilingual.
A very interesting vlog, especially the transfer issues of mind response from one language to the other. I think language is a very Left Brain/ Right Brain process. I regret that I left my German language skills lapse so completely, but in the mid 1980s I did an advertising campaign as a model for Lord Cigarettes, which I was told is the most popular cigarette brand in Germany. I was cast in Los Angeles but the ad agency was based in Frankfurt. The photo shoot was shot on location at a resort in the Canary Islands that was at the time and might still be, frequented predominantly by German tourists. Because we would shoot early in the mornings and then go back out late in the day to catch the sun at an angle to bounce light off of a white wall, I had most of the mid day to lay around the swimming pool and hear nothing but German being spoken. After about the third day, I started to understand more of what was being said. And that was a good thing because, just as it was when I was in Germany, I always got taken as a German, and Germans around the pool at the resort would casually address me with a statement in German, and if was short, I might be able to understand what they said, but if it was a long phrase, I was buried and I'd have to mention that I was an Americana. The long and the short of it is that there's nothing like being smack in the middle of an environment of the language.

Hey, ich bin soo happy. Ich würde sagen, ich habe 99% von dem was ihr auf englisch gesagt habt, verstanden. Es ist soo lustig, oft, wenn Amerikaner nur 3 Sätze in einer Fremdsprache lernen und dann fragt man sie z.B. "Sprichst du Deutsch?" wäre die Antwort "Yeah, I do!". Weil sie so selbstbewusst sind. Wenn man einen Deutschen fragt "Kannst du englisch sprechen?" , da würde ich meine Hand für ins Feuer legen, 100% sagen "Nein" oder "Ein bisschen ..."! Völlig egal, auf welchem Level die tatsächlich sind. Ich sage auch immer "Ein bisschen" oder "Nicht so gut", aber so schlecht ist es offenbar gar nicht. 😁😁😁😁 Greetings from Berlin 😎

Based on only an hour of listening to Jay, I'd say that Feli has more of a German accent than Jay. But it took a long time for me to detect Feli's (I'd hardly call it an) accent, so there could be some really obscure features of his speech that are easy to miss. She often pronounces a German 'o' in English words where Americans pronounce that letter as 'uh'. eg. "of" pronounced like "off".1:16:33 "So that was the end _off_ the interview." See?

I hope you guys have read my previous comments about the Pledge of Allegiance. It's very important to recognize that it is a pledge to the values and the country itself, and not to the government. That's why I do not agree at all that it has dictator connotations. On a separate note, Josh mentioned that he never even thought about saying the Pledge while he was growing up. In my own experience, I actually started questioning why we were disciplined if we didn't say it at a fairly early age. I would ask my teachers, "Doesn't a pledge only mean something if we say it voluntarily?" and most of them would just tell me I didn't have to say it anymore once I graduate. A few agreed with me, but said I still had to stand and go through the motions to meet school policy. I never really disagreed with the Pledge, so I still said it, but I guess these interactions kind of gave me a slightly different perspective.

I also think the US flag and Pledge of Allegiance would have more meaning to those who have fought for the USA. I remember after 9/11 I felt more patriotism when saying the pledge in the mornings. I do find it interesting how divided our country is in recent years yet we all said the same pledge of allegiance each morning as children.

When I grew up (in a German from Germany family), I had jet black hair. This turned out to be a good thing because I didn't stick out among either group, ethnic German (is that a correct way of saying it?) or Turkish/Italian/wherever their families came from. But of course, the ethnic background is an issue and, sorry to say that, quite often a good point to start a conversation. The intention is quite often interest in someone as a person. Next step is to remain tactful. But is it racist to assume, Germans are good at soccer? Or to ask somebody if they eat pork at all?

13:05 No hats inside. Back when everyone wore hats, men always took them off indoors. Wearing a hat indoors was considered rude. Then came the post war generation, who stopped or never started wearing hats as part of the costume, creating an interval between the more formal era and the era of the baseball cap. In this new era no one had heard of the rule about removing your hat indoors, so...

Pop Tarts were sold some time at kaufland. They were extremely expensive, like 5 euros a package. And since nobody bought it, they threw it out of the sells program

Point of information: The whole Pledge of Allegiance thing evolved from post World War II concerns about the impact of communism and the Russian/USSR threat in the early 1950s where the Pledge of Allegiance was introduced into public schools and has since become institutionalized though it is completely voluntary. The problem is that people to include many school administrators and teachers, seem to think that it is mandatory and if a child refuses, that it is disrespectful. There is, of course, the “minor detail” of infringement upon the students first amendment rights. During this period the phrase “under God“ was added to the Pledge of Allegiance. The large amount of immigrant population during this time was possibly an impetus to the perceived need for this pledge. No hat in the school thing in the US public schools is very much a waning folk tradition that people do not wear hats indoors because it is a sign of disrespect just as Christians, like Jews, used to cover their heads in church as a sign of religious respect. Growing up if one came indoors wearing a hat Someone might say “were you born in a barn? Takeoff your hat!”, meaning the wearer had no manners. The tradition is still recognized in the US military.

Glad Jay asked about his accent! I randomly noticed about halfway through his 's' sounds are a little more s like rather than z like. That's the only thing that i heard where i was like 'oh huh i guess he's got a bit of accent'

The purpose of a top sheet is to separate your clean body from the quilt/duvet that rarely gets washed. Often times heirloom quilts cannot be washed so you wouldn’t want to put your clean self next to a not so clean, years old, quilt coverlet. Doesn’t apply to today’s bedding

The problem with "Ich bin ein Berliner" is that it was taken out of context. JFK never said that he is from Berlin but he said that one can be proud to say to be from Berlin.

16:50 the USA pledge of allegiance is not about USA superiority over all others. The pledge is a statement about unity of the American republic and support for liberty and justice for all.

@brentvfreiberger You are totally entitled to your opinion as you have your 1st Amendment. I was just sharing that I thought saying the Pledge in school was nice and a reminder of what the US is supposed to be all about. Question... did you think singing your Branch’s song or saluting the American Flag in the morning and at 17:00 was leaning towards fascism or did you ever feel patriotic when doing those things? Also, thank you for your Service.

@Lynda I spent four years in the United States Army. I took one oath one time and considered it to be binding. Still do. It doesn’t require reinforcement. Daily pledges of allegiance are a pernicious feature of fascist and socialist societies.

@Lynda I had to think about how I can put my thoughts in words, I hope they can be followed. First, I'm not able to understand what is so important about the flag. To the US citicents it seems to be a holy gral, not just a flag. For me it feels very facist to give a peice of cloth such a high status. It is a cult like thing to do. The same sort of greetings are used to greet and salute Kim Jong Un, Mussolini and Hitler.... Second the amound of national pride and the idea that in the US there is unity and justice hammered into the heads like a mantra prevents the people to see the unjustice and devicions and flaws of the US. That is the main goal of indoctrination, so critics are felt to be traitors. So you better do not critic. And from the outside prospective that is ecactly how many of the US citicen akt, when they encounter people who point out the flaws in US society. Third the plege historiclly had only minor chages made. So back in the days of slavery there was the same phrase used 'with liberty and justice for all' which must have been ment as jocke to all POC and women. And the changes made sice...well...'under god' was added in 1954. Why, if the US is so wonderfully secular is 'under god' so importend to add it? I do acnollege back in the days of the founding Americas concept was really revolutionary and modern. But since then they have been overtaken by so many 'old nations' . And the US does not even get it...because they are buissy telling eachother how fabules they are...
Lynda Yıl önce
@Karin Land Interesting perspective.... what concepts do you think reciting the Pledge is trying to indoctrinate vulnerable children into? For me, I would say maybe National Pride and allegiance to the Republic that is established for us by our founding documents. Then of course there’s the aspect of unity under the principle of Liberty for all. I personally really appreciate this and find it inspirational. Looking forward to what you think.

Regarding the Instagram thing at the end of the video, I'm just speaking for myself here, but I personally only check Instagram about as often as I check LinkedIn (maybe twice per month), whereas I use Facebook and TRvid every day. It doesn't make sense to install another crappy app (Instagram) on my phone if I barely use it. So, I use the browser version.

With regards to race, i think the organization is required to ask those questions if they receive any federal funds. Personally, i either skip the question, choose not to answer if that’s an option, or just lie. Racism will only end when government stops feeding off it.

Hey Feli, struggelst du im Englischen noch oft mit Dialekten? Ich schaue gerne Filme und YT-Videos auf englisch und verstehe sie auch schon ganz gut. Aber manchmal habe welche dabei, da verstehe ich absolut gar nichts 😱😠 Dann fühle ich mich wie ein absoluter Anfänger, als ob ich überhaupt kein Englisch könnte. Das ist so frustrierend!!! Vielleicht wäre das ja mal ein Thema für euch, Dialekte in beiden Sprachen 😉😀 Greetings from Berlin 😎

Personally, I found spanking was far more accepted by British school teachers than American school teachers. I was in international British school for grades 1-3, and then American school after that. I saw students spanked all the time, right there in the classroom when I was in British school.

What amazes me about Rammstein is not that they're a German band, but that they have achieved success in English speaking countries when they sing in German. (Same goes to BTS, which speak Korean, of course.) They're have been German bands who have had success abroad, but sang in English (Scorpions, Accept, Helloween, Kreator).

@Thomas Kalbfus My point was that foreign language hits are relatively rare in the United States. Despacito was the probably the last one that crossed over into general pop hitdom, but 99 Luftballoons was a hit in the early 80's as well as Rock Me Amadeus a few years later. These were one offs, though in this country.

@Maria Reis English is a Germanic Language. I'm not sure what you mean by English English, I speak American English. English English is slightly different although I can understand it, I figure I won't bother trying to imitate an English accent when speaking with an English person, I figure he can understand me in my American accent just as easily as I can understand him in his English accent.

@Thomas Kalbfus I think this may be because most of the US is very.. ENGLISH ENGLISH! I mean even though the original commenter mentioned BTS's success, I think a lot of BTS success is because they have such a huge following because SO many people who listen to them already listened to other KPOP artists, that while have not had the same achievement, have done quite well.

I also have to say, that I agree with this comment because I am a huge fan of the band Tokio Hotel which is also a German band that before they did their Scream album, which is actually just translated songs from their first 2 all German albums, Schrei & Zimmer 483 they had no success at all in the USA. Now, obviously their success here is also very limited unfortunately compared to Rammstein.

If you think that multiples of ten are more sensible for measurement systems, then US tons are perhaps not as bad as you might think! British tons are 20 hundredweight (20 cwt.), where a hundredweight is 8 stone. I don't think you're familiar with them in the USA, but a stone is 14 lbs. So if you do a quick calculation, a ton (the good old British variety) is 20 x 8 x14 = 2,240 lbs. Obvious, right? At some point I think in the USA you must have rounded down to 2,000. So I suppose you can think of your US tons as halfway to metric if it makes you feel better. 😉

I‘m German and since I‘m watching Twoset Violin (very very funny australian Classical Musicians) I‘m pronuncing the name of famous german composers the english way. for example „Buaack“ instead of „Bach“ or „Mouzaard“ instead of „Moozartt“. But also composers from foreign countries, like Poland or Russia ect. (Sibeilius instead of the german way Siebeelius) I don‘t know if that helped or interested anyone lol xd

44:27 Diet Coke is a whole different story than soda with sugar. I'm not saying one is better than the other, but there is a large difference because the sugar in soda is directly responsible for a lot of obesity in the world and Diet Coke does not contain any sugar.

Depending on the substitute of the sugar, it will have the same reaction to it like it was real sugar.
