I Speak German

Ein Bisschen... I had four years of Deutsch, German, but never got immersed in the language. This was in the years of high school so it has been 23+ years ago.  I never attained fluency even then.  I can watch a German film and understand some of what is said.  I can still do my numbers probably because I used them against my fear of needles.  So, I can still move my way up eins, zwei, drei, ... thru larger numbers like zwolfundzweithausand.   Most of my vocabulary has left me.  I do remember some like schlachtschiffe or unterseeboot because I see them in many of the books I read.  I also come across some in stamp collecting which can refresh my memory, but unless I live in Deutschland, I'll probably never attain any real fluency.
Sounds great =)
I'm a german girl and I'm really happy und a bit surprised, that so much people want to leanr german.

Freut mich echt sehr =)

Many other languages may be more popular, but German is the mother language to English. So to truly understand English you must study German. I learned that from my mother who was an English teacher. I do wish some of the education methods used in Germany might be used here in the US because I think they would help greatly with our own labor troubles.
What do you mean by 'truly understand' English? I'm curious =3
And you're right about the last thing you wrote.
I heard you don't have such social benefits like german people have and I really don't know much about your 'english' system, if you know what I mean, but I really hope it will get better soon =)
My favorite singer sings in german...maybe you could translate sometime hehe

I might get some of the words, but I'd have to rely on Google translate, I just don't use German much anymore. I used it a lot in college, but it quickly dwindled under the stresses of daily life. I can still curse. :) scheisse :)

Of course, I bet dayzeedayzee probably has a much better command of the language and could translate just about anything.
