English to German: I am scared of animals  
von Wrekk (UN), 2012-06-04, 21:31  like dislike  Spam?  
I am writing a letter to a family in Germany that will host me on a school trip. In the letter, I need to tell them that I am scared of animals. How do I say, "I am scared of animals," in German? Thanks

"Ich fürchte mich vor Tieren" or "Ich habe angst vor Tieren"
Angst groß, auch bei 'Angst haben'  #658862

Animals are a lot harder to avoid in Germany than in many other places.  (But easier than in, say, Africa.)  I've found that German dog owners often walk their dogs without a leash.  Not that they don't have one.  But you'll find the dog owner having the leash leisurely slung around their necks, walking far behind their dog running free.  (Showing very little sympathy for people who don't love their darling.)
If you come from an automobile centered culture, like the US, you'll find that you'll be out and about and walking in crowds, sidewalks, open spaces and nature a whole lot more than you ever have before.  All of that may expose you to contact with animals of various kinds.
If you really are afraid of all and any kind of animal, it might be advisable to contact a health professional for some advice before you go.  
If it's just certain types of animals that instill fear in you it will be very helpful to your host family if you give them as specific a list as you can.  (All insects or just wasps, ants and spiders?  Are you o.k. with ladybugs?  How about birds?  Pets?)  
On a positive note there are very few wild animals that are dangerous in Germany.  Most have gone extinct ages ago.  Even their insects seemed to come in comparatively tame varieties.  
Good luck.
