Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Albert: The euro has been the German currency since 2002, when most countries of the European Union adopted it. Before the Euro, the currency in Germany was the D-Mark, the Deutsche Mark.
Even though many countries use the Euro, the backside of the coin still shows the country of origin. So you’ll find some coins from Germany as well as from France or Italy and you can use them everywhere.

Hi David,


My correction here:

"Ich habe sechshundertvierundsiebzig Euro und drei Cent."

Don´t forget that the English "I" is in German "Ich".
