Do you wanna learn Bavarian?

Servus!(Hello in Bavarian), i would love to teach Bavarian!
Where do they speak Bavarian?: In southern Germany and Austria. Is it an easy language or it is a little hard?: If you're learning Bavarian it will be easy and funny! It is a little similar with German but anyway it's different(for example Hamma de Äbfe, it means We've the apples, personally, i believe Bavarian is ealiler than German.
Here's a video about Bavarian!
Pfiadi!

    I thought Bavarian was just a dialect??? 0_0' Now I'm curious!

    Yes, but the difference between it and standard German is huge, so it is much harder to understand, think Scottish English and American English trying to talk to each other. It is possible, but not easy

    Got it! I looked up the video of the differences between the two. Thanks for the response and explanation! ^^

    get out here !!! there is an austrian dictionnary "österreichisches wörterbuch". You would be surprised how many differences there are, in vocabulary and grammar Thats why i hate duolingo sometimes, because if i post the right answer in austrian, it's for example wrong, because germans and austrians take different articles for words.

    for example: plate ist Teller, but in Austria "das Teller" is right (der Teller is accepted too) German is "der Teller" a potatoe is a Kartoffel in german, but an "erdapfel" in Austria etc..

    That happens in Bavarian, too. We say der Butter, der Radio, etc. Despite the differences, we have much more in common with Austrian German, and also in terms of culture, than with what they speak up there in the North of the country. It's not 100% the same, I realise. Anyway, I feel more "at home" in Vienna than in Hamburg. And the cakes are better.

    Ich würde gerne bairische lernen. For whatever reason, I've been most attracted to that particular part of the country.

    come visit Vienna, you would definitely be surprised. But even worse in Tirol, or let's go to southern Styria. Austrians in the beautiful Vorarlberg speak rather suiss german (very hard when not impossible to understand for other Austrians).

    uuuuuups !!! hey, don't tell Austrians (i'm one!!) that they would speak bavarian!

    we speak austrian, which in some parts of austria is really near to bavarian :-)

    the problem is: how would you spell. I'm writing austrian sometimes with my friends, but there is no standard spelling. So it's even hard for us, to get from written language, what is meant.

    My family wants to go to Southern Germany next year, could you recommend any Bavarian sites. Also, If you want to know the types of German there is: 1. Standard german ( Everywhere in Germany but bavaria) 2. Bavarian(In Bavaria and Austria) 3. Swiss German 4. Berlin dialect.

    There's a lot more German than that. Try going to Stuttgart for example and tell me it's Standard German what they speak in Swabia.
