I didn't move to the states until I was 18 so I did go through the German school system and I'm glad I did because they require you to take English starting with the 5th grade. Depending on what "track" you are on, you will also add 2 more languages later on (7th and 9th grade).

It serves as a great foundation but it took me probably 6 months before I was confident enough in my conversational English to even talk to strangers.

Good evening,
First of all(Once) to many thanks to for your answers. If I am honest, now I am angry I no English has learnt when I still went to school. If one disciple is much quicker then Learning one as if one is older(elder), well I am only 23 years old, however, it do not know itself, nevertheless, as, unfortunately, so easily.

My husband was already in very much many countries, unfortunately, still before our time, he speaks eig. Perfectly English. I have also asked him to support me. I vintage a lot into English.


Or if Tv, music or films looks into English. I have also downloaded to me Apps around English to learning(study). I must start to say just, unfortunately, from 0 so, unfortunately.

It does not become easy(simple). However, I also have to fly before sometimes in other countries. My dreamland is Australia, my husband was not already several months there, I, unfortunately, yet.
Timewise I get not to take it simply right lessons, I have 3 horses, 1 child and have today experienced I again am pregnant, I am so happy.

Now this is why I have off(finished) to me thought I simply start(begin) sometimes, me with other people to exchange in other countries life with which one is able to do properly(right) writing(letter). One pleases this me also here so nicely is taken up(accepted) ;). In German forums this is not mostly in such a way, there one gets only stroppy answers and one is put as Stupid there. However, this is not here fall.m The liked to me.

Unfortunately, Working I now with English translator, is called so I do not write this ;). However, does one understand me well? or has this Broken?



also not eaten with me;). I had eig several, unfortunately there came the fox and has taken from me all out of the couple: (.
I can do photos, unfortunately, I have nobody to the hand. My chickens also have name, the cock calls Manfred (Manni) and the hen calls Puffy;).

These are a dwarf Hühner, I find this funny looks so. If the cock runs and the wings(pianos) wander along the ground(bottom). He(it) is very small, really, very much, the hen has also already put eggs. I was proud because the eggs were fertilized, unfortunately, there came a bird (magpie) and has broken the whole eggs. Thereupon the hen has put no more egg. Now we Must wait, then ne while lasts puts you again...

Love greets from Germany, now I will go to bed it is already rather late and by the pregnancy is to me bissel bad....

To then By.

I am so a fascinated and look to me at your pictures, everything looks so madly;)

! ! ! Greetings from Germany.! ! ! : D

I had youth on my side so not having it in school first wasn't too much of an issue. Children pick up languages like sponges. I had a same age cousin that followed us to the states 3 years later and she has an accent to this day because of the age difference 3 years made. But she still picked it up pretty quick.

Corporal, that's pretty much me in a nutshell. LOL! They call me the German Redneck around here. ;) It's amazing though. I was only 9 but I have no trouble speaking German to this day. I can't come up with major technical terms that I probably wouldn't know in English either, but it's cool how your first language sticks with you even after 30 years. :)

I do think it's great to see so many German speakers on here!

So sweet. I think you are doing very well with your English. My youngest daughter studied German and I like to send her posts in German from this forum to try to translate.
Don't worry about your hen--she WILL lay more eggs. We call dwarf chickens, "Bantam". There are many breeds that have been bred to be a normal size and to be bantam, but there is a Japanese chicken that only comes in a small, or bantam size.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! We need more pictures of you and your family!

Your horses are cute, and so is your dog. Congratulations on your pregnancy.
I had chickens that were called game hens, small and skinny but dogs killed them.
I do not care for fertilized eggs to eat. The only reason you need a rooster is for chicks. :)

I will accept that an intelligent and inquisitive person who has been immersed in either the US or British society can learn to make themselves understood verbally within a relatively short time. But writing English presents a different challenge.

Of the two perhaps, an English speaker faces the greater challenge when writing German but arguably the German speaker probably finds it the easier to write English.

But I am not a teacher - so who am I to argue.

I would say it is much easier to learn English( or Italian, for that matter, especially when the Italian comes after English and German) than German, the latter being a rather difficult language.... even for some Germans.
Being immersed in the society undoubtedly helps, but one has to still learn grammar and spelling.
I find myself getting into Spanish now, being in California. I can understand and read quite a bit, since it's so close to Italian, but speaking is a different story... my brain keeps slipping into Italian
It is all about the willingness to learn, no matter what age.
