Keyboards in Germany
How are they? Good? Bad? (I know that sounds terribly weird and awkward but oh well)
Easy / Hard to get used to?
What do they look like?
Will a English one work just fine there?
And how would you make it a German one on mine that's English?
On a Windows computer, you can change the language setting of the keyboard via the control panel. That way you can plug in an English keyboard into a German computer and still type the way you're used to.
If you use a German language setting on an English keyboard, you might end up with a lot of confusion in the punctuation / special characters sections: http://clasfaculty.ucdenver.edu/tphillips/GermanKeyboardLayout.html
When I lived abroad, it took me a few months to get used to the z/y switch. (Luckily, their keyboards retained most of the punctuation / special characters I was used to.)
