During our week in Germany, we noticed there are not only similarities but also differences between the three participating countries. Not only language but also the school systems, climates, food habits etc. are different. We did some research about the main differences between our cultures.

The Swedes speak Swedish, the Belgians speak Dutch and the Germans speak German. Although these are three different languages you hear they are related.
