    Yeah Shakespeare has basically supplanted Goethe and Schiller for most modern Germans

    It still is for me. I don't read in my native tongue.

    Does English sound nicer to Germans than their own tongue? Like how Italian or French can sound interesting and seductive to us.
    I don’t know, I can’t hear it.

      Recently learned Heidegger did his PhD on Duns Scotus so I believe that

      English is possibly the nicest sounding language on earth. French and Italian are only interesting and seductive if you're a midwit. French is truly awful when you really consider it. Italian sounds almost African. Spanish is okay.

        imo, despite my own accent in English being mostly based on American elements, proper, older English accents are beautiful whereas American accents are quite ugly. The preponderance of the approximant R is a rather vulgar feature to me; comfy to use and hear in daily speech, but not the least bit poetic or elevated.

            That's not what I meant, and I don't know how you could've really concluded that I meant that unless you were already thinking about it. No, the "which is older" (American or English or whatever) thing is moronic and anyone who knows anything about linguistics knows that.
            What I meant was an older English accent, i.e. like how they spoke in the 1920s or the 1970s or such. I basically just meant to convey my dislike of the modern southern English koine. The English I most like is that spoken e.g. by the fire keepers in Dark Souls. Wonderful.

      Anything sounds better than their native tongue, anon. Why do you think 70% of them are bilingual?

    Any language can sound nice, depends on who's using it and how they're doing it. Except for Dutch, that's hot garbage.

      >except for dutch
      You must've never heard Flemish before, especially not spoken by a cute girl.
      Also, Danish is much worse than even the most distasteful Dutch rendition.

    yeah the history of germany is really pathetic.
    it starts with them being generic barbarians trying to meaninglessly frick some very local romans and always failing . They do it only to fill up their days and try to pass as local hardcore heroes towards their moronic local population lol

    then they become nothing. France was all the most powerful kingdom ever. Spain, Italy, GB all achieve some relevance too.Meanwhile germany was still a shithole with little warlords killing each others lol.

    Then progress was made by france once more. This time with the enlightenment. The german rats were 100 years late on this and the output of the german renaissance is turds like kant, hegel and nietzche lol

    Then world wars happened entirely due to german rats.
    Of course they got crushed like the rat they were.

    Since then germany is a generic american b***h and has been trying to destroy europe for the last 20 years lol

      Oh, you mean "France", i.e. "Frankreich", founded and ruled by the Germanic tribe, the Franks, who had massive influence on the language now known as French? Right.

    Did anything happen in Germany in the 20th century that might have changed that?
