German dialects are dialects often considered languages in their own right and are classified under the umbrella term of "German".Though varied by region, those of the southern half of Germany beneath the Benrath line are dominated by the geographical spread of the High German consonant shift, and the dialect continua that connect German to the neighboring varieties of Low Franconian and Frisian.

German Dialects List. Low German – Named after the flat lands in the region. Low German is spoken from the Dutch border to the former German lands of Eastern Pommerania, and Eastern Prussia. Low German includes many sub dialects. Frisian German – Dialect found along the border of Denmark and the North Sea Coast. Niederdeutsch, sometimes called Plattdeutsch, is the dialect spoken in the areas of northern Germany and in parts of the eastern part of the deutsch is sometimes also called ‘Low’ German, in contrast to High German, but this reflects that Niederdeutsch in spoken also in the Netherlands (the Low Country). Because Niederdeutsch is spoken both by German and Dutch people. Germans get swept off their feet when they hear the dialect spoken in Bavaria. Almost every fourth German has their heart skip a beat when listening to the softer-sounding variety of German, but they cringe when the Saxonian or Rhineland Palatinate dialect is within earshot.. German dialects usually only play a minor role in German class because the standard German (Hochdeutsch) is taught. The Germanic languages are a branch of the Indo-European language family spoken natively by a population of about million people mainly in Europe, North America, Oceania and Southern most widely spoken Germanic language, English, is the world's most widely spoken language with an estimated 2 billion Germanic languages are derived from Proto-Germanic, .

  The Low German dialects (in the Northern Germany) had stayed unaffected and had preserved their usual Germanic sounds, whereas in the central and southern parts of the country (to the South of the Benrath line), there had been some changes concerning the consonants (p → pf, f; t → tz; k → kch, ch; b → p/b). English vs German vs Swiss German (Zurich) vs Swiss German (Valais) Part 1 and Part 2 from the youtube channel of the Swiss cable TV joiz demonstrates differences between standard German and two varieties of Swiss German. Although you may understand many of the phrases and sentences in the Zurich dialect, Walser German would most likely be a tough challenge also for a native German.   German-learners who step off the plane in Austria, Germany, or Switzerland for the first time are in for a shock if they know nothing about German gh standard German (Hochdeutsch) is widespread and commonly used in typical business or tourist situations, there always comes a time when you suddenly can't understand a word, even if your German is pretty good. Only High German dialects have carried it out, and not all of them to the same degree (see Rhenish Fan later) • Along the Rhine it was carried out to differing degrees • Upper German carries it out most extensively • Central/Middle German carries it out partly • Low German does not carry it out at all.
