The group dynamics at Improv have shifted. When I first started it was made up primarily of expats with a sprinkling of Germans who spoke English. Now it has changed to half expats and half Germans who speak English, which I think is just awesome. This also means there is much more opportunity to speak German at the pub afterwards if you so desire.
It so happens that at the pub last night for some unknown and probably very strange reason we started to tell jokes in German. My German is most kindly described as barely functional, but thankfully these jokes were on par with those told by five year olds and using extremely basic vocabulary. Also those telling the jokes spoke very slowly and went over words anyone didn’t understand. Due to this I could understand and laugh along with everyone at the punchline. It was an awesome feeling to not only understand something in German but be truly part of the conversation, rather than just understanding a word here and there and having no idea what was going on and what everyone is laughing about.
So, was ist grün und sitzen an Klavier?
I didn’t say that they were good jokes.
