Learning German. My hobby.

So, I have always loved languages, in school Spanish was my best subject.
Two years ago, I met my boyfriend. Always with his friends it was german, German, German. So I left the Spanish learning and decided to learn german! I have beens studying and learning for 2 years and recently got Rosetta Stone which has helped tremendously.
Anyone else out their learning German?

Deutsche sprache schwere sprache.

I have German at school. I've been learning it for two years and now in third class we had to choose English or German and I've chosen German :) I like this language, it's funny ;) but in fact not easy for me, because I don't use it beside lessons

German is difficult. The hardest part for me is the "der, die, das"
There is no clue to which goes to which word. While its "die Katze" (feminine) theres "der Hund" (masc)

I have taught myself a little German. but my interest in it was sort of accidental. So when I started learning it I did not know the importance of (die/der/das) and other 'little' things like that. So my understanding of it is not as good as it should be. =)~

I do love languages, though.

I LOVE German! I took it for six years in grade school and I entirely adore it. It may be difficult, but it is a very fun language. I'm not exactly fluent, but I did speak it very well at one point. I'm a little rusty now, but I would love to travel to Germany one day and test it out :]

I'm learning German in school right now! It's a bit difficult but I've been doing pretty well in it considering how hard of a time I had in French. I know (and remember) more German after learning it for two months than I did taking French (as a option) for five years.

I actually just finished my Trauzimmer project today.

In German there's a lot of things to remember, der/die/das, rules of flection and it is difficult for me to think about it when speaking. So in result I can do exercises correctly, but I can't say few sentences fluently :(
I love words in German And creating those long, specific words Few days ago I learnt funny verb: skypen :) Great language :)

I want to learn German, self taught myself a few things lol but not enough to hold a conversation.
I have extended family over in Germany and went and visted them for the first time earlier in this year, fell in love with the place and the language, just loved listening to it, by the end of my stay I was able to sort of pick up what they were saying

Ja, naturlich :) Bin viertel Deutsch, gerboren im Berlin und wohnt im Deutschland im moment :)

I can speak horsey German, teach riding in German, after that... nothing! If you ever need a hand, ask :)

And Kiviknon, why? I live in Germany, not my choice, because my father's posting is out here. So is it 'douche' that the army sent us out here, or 'douche' that the German's want us to learn their language rather than us attempt it? Sorry, I just found that a really bizzare comment lol!
