    austrians speak GERMAN, however the accent is what distinguishes both countries.

  • sweetface

    Don’t really know/remember the voices of TH, MC and FH, but I think Eva Longorias real voice is pretty different to her “german” voice.

  • austrian

  • Pink_driven JoliePitt

  • Claire

    The ad is stupid :(( I like Marcia (and Bree) so much but this is just odd.

    And Austrian – I witnessed an American asking a girl from London what language they speak in England :-P I don’t have to say he did not have much chances after that question…

  • Fug Face Man!ston

    marcia – premy-baby’s head. enormous!

  • Jane

    It’s actually German withought an Austrian accent.
    I love Bree, she’s so funny…

  • austrian

    it’s really funny that people are suprised that austrian people speak german…

    I know austria isn’t a big country and it’s not one of the big players in world politics but I would have thought that some americans would still know austria… cause the country used to be quite powerful during Habsburg monarchie and it also played a major role during the first and second world war.

    So I am quite suprised that american studens haven’t heard of austria before and don’t know which language is spoken there…

  • austrian girl

  • austrian girl

    hey austrian..

    du solltest dich mit solchen aussagen zurückhalten!!!

    Ich weiss die amerikaner sind nicht grad die schlausten, aber du solltest nicht gleich beleidigend werden, weder gegenüber den amerikanern noch gegenüber den afro-amerikanern!!!

  • austrian girl

  • loa

    so many fellow-austrians around… I can’t believe it.. ;-)

    “Hello Darling!”
    “Nice that you’re here, come in!”
    “These tea cups are wonderful, and so clean – almost like mine!”
    “That’s very easy.”
    “And these napkins – perfectly white. And this table-cloth – simply perfect. How are you doing this?”
    “Can you keep a secret?”
    “Of course I can!”
    “Well, me too!”
