How I would love to hear you say that with the wonderful accent you surely have! Yes
Hi Anjele,
sorry, i miss your first post. Yes, i think i have quite an accent, if it comes to speaking english. But the accent maybe not the whole problem.
Writing is a totally differend cup of coffee.
Her i can switch over to goggle-translater and search the phrase or word i need.
Speaking needs so much more courage.
I try to find the words, mess up the grammar, my head becomes red and feels like blowing up. I open my mouth and stutter from word to word.
This kind of conversation isn't very satisfying.

If atheism is a religion, then not playing football is an Olympic discipline.

I spent a lot of time with the mother of one of my son's football (American football) team mates who was from Germany. Between the thick accents in South Carolina (where we lived) and her German accent, it was a struggle for her and many people didn't put forth much effort. With my midwestern-newscaster-non-accent and being familiar with the German accent we did pretty well. Over a few years I saw her comfort grow with the language. We used her daughter, who was a preteen, as our translator if we got stuck. We actually had a good time trying to understand one another.

Welcome again! Enjoy your stay.

I think it is a great opportunity, to communicate with people and learning how they live, think and belief. So, my last english-lesson is long time ago, may it be 30 jears or so.

Oh thank God we finally have a German here who knows how to use English in a proper German way instead of that damn Vosur who swears he's German but we're pretty sure is an Englishman who's just in Germany to learn German.

But after the second world war we want to show our friendly face and have to invend something quite like humor, but it still puzzles us.(Satire)

And with a proper German sense of humor to boot. Big Grin

Absolutely, i love the expression on his face, or more the lack of it. Hahaha...
You can do so much, with such little.
