What does this sentence mean? "Know" Germany?
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)
"Are you already (schon) familiar with Germany?
do you know Germany well?
it can also mean that
but Schon means beautiful?
this language can be baffling.
schon = already
schön = beautiful
