What do German teenagers in their leisure time? Are there differences between the teenagers from Germany and other countries?
According to a Google study, the favourite activities of a German teenager are:
- Meeting friends
- Listening to music
- Going out
- Playing games on the computer
- Doing sports
Many young people were asked what they do in their free time. All of them said that they think like this Google study too and these are the typical things that a teenager does in his free time. But many teenagers from many countries do the same, so what is rather that special about the hobbies of a German teenager? To find out, lots of teenagers were asked about their favourite hobbies and what they think that the most popular sport is. Of course, they said “Football”, as we won the FIFA world championship this year. Not only boys, but also girls play football. Also, a popular sport for the teenagers here is tennis. By way of example, boys and girls play tennis in special clubs every week. Handball, riding, gymnastic, dancing (like classic, jazz, hip hop and many more) are also very popular hobbies.
As you can see, the German teenagers are really active and do many sports, but there is also a considerable part, which is playing computer games – the whole day long. Some on the xBox others on the PlayStation and many also on the PC. Some players were asked about their favourite games. The result is that games like World Of Warcraft, games of the “Call of Duty” series, GTA5, FIFA, Minecraft, Super Mario or The Legend of Zelda are very liked.
As you can see, the German teenagers have a multitude of choices when it comes to their freetime. From sports, all the way to computer games.
