German language is like music. Any language is like music. Your native language is music too. Communicating in German is not just about your vocabulary, cool phrases or proper grammar. It is about the tone ( der Tonefall ). The tone of your language is different when you are confused (verwirrt ) , excited, nervous or in love.
Apart from the tone of your voice, another aspect is the body language ( Körpersprache )
