  1. Good first episode!

    I wonder if there is more to the “german/french speaking”-part, but I don’t think so.

    From my understanding: The woman in the beginning of the scene ONLY speaks german, that’s why the blonde guy answers with really short and basic german sentences. He probably knows SOME german since he’s getting around a lot.

    He also doesn’t react to the woman’s deeper more complicated topics she’s bringing up in german. That could mean he can’t follow her german that well or he just doesnt give a shit about her religious view 😉

    (I’m german by the way, so that scene was a cool read for me :D)

    When he’s getting into the REAL conversation with the other guy he feel would more comfortable speaking french, so the agree to switch to englisch with which they are both comfortable with.

    1. Update: Nevermind, just re-read it 😀
      The woman is speaking broken german herself (using wrong articles and stuff).

      Sorry for a rushed first assumption 😉 What a great book!
