Germany, Europe

Food and Government(money too)

In Germany, farms usually make more grains, milk, and meat than their country needs. Also, they majorly produce hops, which they use in Germany's famous beer industry. Some restaurants in Germany are Zam Zam, Nurnberger Bierhaus, Mangal Keyf, and 3anThai. The capital of Germany is Berlin, which is near Leipzig. Joachim Gauck. Money, (in Germany) is called Geld.

Where my family is from and words

My family is from Pomerania, Germany. Back when my family lived there, this town was called Prussia. Pomerania is near Hamburg, Germany. When we came to America, we lived in Missouri. Here are some words in German; guten tag(hello), auf wiedersehen(goodbye), ich liebe dich(I love you), and bitte danke(please thankyou).

School and Education

In Germany, children have to begin school by age six. After four years of elementary school, kids (students) are given three choices. They can enter Gymnasium (high school) to prepare for college, or they can go to a secondary school to prepare for jobs in business. Almost every job, from repairman (car mechanic) to waiter or factory worker, has a school or program designed for that company. A person can't get a job without going through the correct program. School is usually done by age 19, but Gymnasium students must pass a challenging test to get into college. Students finish their position between ages 21 and 23.

Religion

Most German people are Christian. Roman Catholic and Protestant are both 34.0 percent of the German people. Unaffiliated have 28.3 people in their community. Last, and least in people, Muslim comes up. They took up only 3.7 German people. Which is fairly weird, because that equals 100 percent of people. But, here's something stranger; about 28 percent belongs to other.

Transportation, Sports, and Weather

Like us, Germany uses trains, cars, and planes. If you lived in Germany, soccer would most likely be your favorite sport. They take part in sports like track and field, volleyball, basketball, handball, and swimming at school, but school teams are unusual. Rather than that, kids or students go to clubs after school to play soccer, tennis, or participate in other sports. Where they live comes in too. Kids perhaps also skis or hikes. At home, they have video games and computers, as well as cards and board games like the US.
