German and Scandinavian languages, how close are in terms of people understanding each other? Like Portuguese and Spanish or...?
My native language is German and I do not understand Finish, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian or any other nordic language in writing or spoken. Not even dutch. Sometimes you can guess a word, but that's about it.
