Also, I was in Munich last year and even being an English speaker, while I was hanging out with some friends and I felt that there was a marked difference between the German accent/tone/pace there as compared to when I was in Mannheim, or Mainz/Wiesbaden, or Austria.
There is definately a difference between the german dialects. Thats a reason for many germans to tease other germans with different dialect.
Using a bavarian dialect can bring you into big trouble when you walk into certain german cities because of tensions between different soccer clubs
But I can imagine its the same way in some cities in Canada, maybe not because of soccer but of other sports, or am I wrong? Any tips which club i shouldnt be a fan of when Im exploring toronto?
