In this episode of "Adventures With Chris" we learn how to speak German in 5 minutes or less. I am an American. I’m also half Portuguese but the ability to speak Portuguese doesn’t do me a whole hell of a lot when in Germany. I had two options: act like a stupid American and just speak English even louder than normal in hopes the Germans would understand me if I turned the volume up or smile, say nothing and turn to Chris Pfanner and let him speak for me. I opted for the latter. But as we drove out to Austria to see Pfanner’s family for Easter I asked him to teach me some key phrases. These come in real handy when visiting Germany.
