  Friendly Germans
by Stevo_Jess

One of the main concerns we had in Germany especially Mainz is if anyone there can speak English. We had thought that only German are spoken outside the Main Cities.

We were wrong. If you speak to them slowly and clearly, you will find that most Germans speak fairly good english. We tried asking for directions from some old Germans but though they could not reply clearly in English, we got them to draw us directions. Hey everyone understands diagrams !

Basically Mainz Germans are really really nice and extremely friendly ! Be kind and your kindness will be recipocrated !
