Hochdeutsch and German film
Hi SonGoku,
English and German fluently as well as three years of mostly forgotten high school Latin. All of them wonderful languages, each with their own sets of strengths and weaknesses. Was recently in Italy practising what they have to say; insofar as Italian can even be a way of speaking as opposed to a way of living.
Just to add my experiences as a 'Mnchner' let me say that 'Hochdeutsch' can be and is spoken by Germans all over Germany as it is taught in the schools that way. With the exception of North Rhine-Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen) and also near Hanover (Hannover) every area has its own dialect. There must be dozens of separate dialects complete with small vocabularies and expressions throughout Deutschland. I personally only know one native 'Hochdeutsch' speaker. In a professional or business setting 'Hochdeutsch' is used.
Dwise1, I could perhaps help you to acquire some of the recent German films available. I rip, for personal use, several of them a year. Most are quite good.
