Forget memorizing the German constitution and all the state capitals. If you want to become a German citizen, this is what you really need to know. Is Rachel Stewart up to the challenge of the alternative Einbürgerungstest?

Rachel is on a mission to investigate the quirks and idiosyncrasies of daily life in Germany. Every two weeks she explores a new topic - from beer to nudity to complicated grammar - and heads out to get some tips from the Germans themselves.

Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life. You'll find more from Meet the Germans on YouTube or at

I remember how shocked I was, when the cashiers at the supermarket started talking to me. Hello and Good Bye! Before they couldn't talk. :o Still undecided whether I like that chattering....
why without milk?
Rachel, you are fantastic!

After the hectic encounter with the cashier I always leave the supermarket with a loud „Scheißladen”; which makes me even more German.

Das Video ist so geil. 😂
1:05 East Frisians could be pretty offended by this. Okay, they use cream, but it's made of milk, so...

This is painfully accurate and relateable
A young cashier in my nearby Aldi is absolutely ruthless. She manages to move the items so quickly, the frame by frame footage from ultra high speed cameras still comes out blurry, but she has such a perfect control over the force she applies to moving each object they absolutely never EVER fall down on the floor or slide into even the most slightly wrong direction! The only line that is forming in the shop is not the people waiting to be cashed - it's the ones at the other end of the register, who are struggling to gather up the pile of their cashed groceries. I wish she was still a bit slower for the Omas and Opas. If not while scanning, then at least AFTER, so that they would'n get so stressed and feel rushed while struggling to pick up their stuff with their frail, shaking hands.
I love all of these videos with you, they're extremely well made and so funny! Keep them coming!

Here in Ostfriesland, a part of Northern Germany, it’s traditions to have tea with cream and Kluntje (Crystalized Sugar). Everyone who says otherwise shouldn’t be allowed out of Germany ;)
to much wrong on that one :(

Just like with every other citizenship test us natives (here germans) would fail miserably especially with the supermarket one is tough and a important step for your functionality in German society

I thought that thing about the green pedestrian light until it was Germans that thought me that as always with German customs and laws there are exceptions for about a ⅓ of the cases.
