Learning to speak German like a proper Ausländer

I’ve finally realised the problem with my German.  I’ve been spending far too much time focussing on making it sound…well….German. I guess what I need to do is take some proper lessons.

    Perhaps this is amusing to a German native speaker. To me, it just seems like a small racist bit, with the common anti-Turkish slant. What do others think?

  2. I would say, it’s more of a social comment on the Germans themselves, about how they fail to see that the Turks are already pretty well integrated and are insistant on turning them into stereotypical “dumme Türken.”

    The joke is definitely on the Germans in this one, not on the Turks.

    I’m german. The lady who is playing the teacher is a well-known comedian in our country, her name is Anke Engelke.
    Don’t take that too serious, most of us germans enjoy to make fun on ourselves. It was not racist.

    I understood it as the Germans making fun of themselves too… It was good!
