Sprechen Sie Englisch?

Seems like most people speak English in Munich, which makes learning German quite difficult – as it’s really not needed in most places. The majority of service industry employees speak English in Munich, which my understanding is this is quite different from most of the rest of Germany. Honestly, the only times German has been required has been when a technician shows up or when you get a haircut. Short of having poor cable service and a really bad hairstyle, survival is definitely possible in Munich. But for those seeking services focused specifically on native English speakers – try some of these. Website for English speakers: Toytown. List of English speaking doctors from the US Embassy or the same list of attorneys. How about certified translators. For English bookstores, try Hugendugel at Salvatorplatz 2, or Anglia English Bookshop. For food, try G&A Grocery Store, which is a good spot for peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies.. For entertainment, you can try the English Drama Group, or this list of English Cinemas.
