Eminem may be able to speak very fast, but can he speak a different language? More specifically, can Eminem speak German?
While it appears that at least in some capacity Eminem is able to speak the language, there isn’t any evidence to suggest that Eminem speaks German regularly. Most likely, Eminem cannot speak German fluently.
There are a few videos that have been circulated showing Eminem speaking German at concerts in Germany and with German television shows for interviews.
Eminem and Language
German is reportedly the only other language (aside from English) that Eminem has any capacity to speak. As the evidence of Eminem speaking German is relatively minimal and the clips are relatively short, it can be safe to assume that Eminem can’t speak German fluently.
However, while he might not excel at any other languages, Eminem certainly excels at the English language. He enjoyed learning about English and literature in middle school and high school and his appreciation of the written word has contributed to his daily practice of carrying around a notebook to jot down thoughts and potential lyrics.
People have always been impressed with the number of words Eminem has been able to get into a song, so much so that he actually topped everyone else as the musical artist with the most impressive vocabulary.
Eminem beat out other rappers by using 8,818 unique words in his songs.
Another way Eminem has contributed to the English language is by adding a word to the dictionary! Based on his hit song “Stan,” the word ‘stan’ was actually added to the English Oxford Dictionary.
According to the dictionary, the word essentially means someone who is an obsessive fan of a certain celebrity.
So, while Eminem doesn’t speak German regularly, we could say that we’re still pretty stan about all the ways he contributes to the English language.
