The curious case of the ß

[deactivated user]

    Hello Leute,

    About that very special character in German, the ß. Here are two very interesting videos about the why's and how's of it. Non-Germans like myself will learn a lot while Germans might also find new pieces of information even if I assume that most of what he says it's taught to you in school:

    Andrew is a British guy who lives in Germany since the early 90's. He makes videos on all things German with a bit of that special British humour. I recommend you have a look at his channel should you be interested in those topics.

    Enjoy.
