Yeah, like do you know your way around?

It's more like "are you familiar with Germany"?

Otherwise it's like asking if you know i it's a country (using Weisst)

No.

schon = already

schön = beautiful

The dots aren't just for decoration! Just like "tap" and "lap" aren't the same except that "tap" has a decorative squiggle through the l at the beginning.
