comment What is the difference between “versuchen” and “probieren”?
For me, "versuchen" is not quite synonymous to "probieren" - I find "probieren" to have a connotation that a failure would not be a (big) problem, while "versuchen" doesn't.

comment Does the German language have a Shakespeare?
"I do not know how this came to be": The authors of classical German literature (Goethe, Schiller and so on) greatly admired Shakespeare and and would reference him quite a bit.

comment Can I say “Montags und donnerstags gehe ich zur Uni um halb elf.” Is this the correct word order?
Ditto. This "rule" is a fairly good guideline, but it can and will be broken regularly.

comment What's the “more correct” term — “achronologisch” or “antichronologisch”?
There's a difference between "unchronolgisch" (not chronological, i.e., in random order) and "antichronologisch" (in reverse order).
