There are many things we eat which are orignally from America. For example fast-food.We have all those big fast-food-restaurants like McDonald´s and Sub-Way. Also we eat things like peanutbutter or corned beaf which have their origin in America.Also the whole fashion comes from over there. The jeans was first produced in America and now all trends are set by the famous people from Hollywood or somewhere else.
I'm of the same opinion as Markus. Fast-food restaurants have become very popular, especially in the younger generation. Another example would be doughnut or muffins. Some years ago nobody know what muffins were but nowadays everybody know and likes them. It's important to add that the American culture is also present in our lifes according to the film industry. Most of the movies come from Hollywood and were produced there, the most important actors are from America and so it's not surprising why a lot of people go there as they have the wish to beome successful in the USA.
I agree to you. Fast food is very popular and films from America are quiet the best, I think.
I live in America so there are a lot of American things here. There are numerous fast food restaurants. Many people go to these fast food places for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Well I live in America of course so it’s kind of hard to say our cultures influence in Germany because I can’t see it. But fast food I can see being in Germany because it s quick and easy food although its bad for you. Also I didn’t know other countries watched movies from America so that’s kind of cool. I think the biggest influence will be the fast food places.
I didn't know that so many of the original foods here in America were introduced and taken as such a great thing in Germany. How cool. Well if I was asked this question in reverse...I would have to say that german beer is a pretty big thing here. =]
I live in America so I can’t really say how American culture is in Germany but looking at Kathi’s, Markus’s and Stefan’s comments I can tell that American culture has a big positive impact in Germany such as all the fast food restaurants and all the movies and many other products.
