“How to be German in 50 Easy Steps”
By Catherine J. Fehre . July 22, 2013
If you need some help blending in with the Germans, British author Adam Fletcher has written a book that can help you be the most German you could be. “How to be German in 50 Easy Steps” or “Wie Man Deutscher Wird in 50 Einfachen Schritten” doesn’t only provide tips on the German lifestyle for the expats roaming around the country, but it gives some hilarious explanation to all those quirks and customs, so foreigners can have some insight and start becoming a true German themselves. For example, Fletcher tells you why Germans always wear Hausschue and why you should always obey the red man. The book is based on Fletcher’s blog, How to be a German, which has over a million readers and counting.
“How to be German in 50 easy Steps” should be required reading for all the “little foreigners” and Germans who don’t quite understand everything about why they do the things they do. That’s why three readers of BERLIN LOVES YOU will have the chance to get a free copy of the book. Then you’ll learn why Germans speak so openly about sex, about their obsession with Spiegel Online, and why they dream of swimming naked in a lake of Apfelsaftschorle.
Adam Fletcher was born in England but an honorary German now living in Berlin. He studied Business Administration and Computer Science, which eventually lead him to find his own company, called The Hipstery, a Berlin based blog and webshop that explores German culture in a humorous way. Aside from this, he also contributes to a variety of other blogs and online columns.
If his sense of humor intrigues you and you want more, check out Adam Fletcher’s Facebook page for his company here.

Hi Catherine, thanks very much for the writeup!

During my visits to Germany, my friends teached me to say :” ich verstehe nur bahnhof ” to say to everybody who speaks to me that I don’t understand a word of what you are saying…….
I would really like to learn German and how to be German…
