  1. abuse of nominative pronouns?

      However, using their would be identifying two people in the first part of the sentence and only Meghan is mentioned. Wouldn't it be correct to say, "...her and Harry's second..."?  
  2. Why are you unhappy today?

    That is great news that Mike is doing well! 
  3. Timing of US tax filing / German tax filing?

    When to File If you are a U.S. citizen or resident alien residing overseas, or are in the military on duty outside the U.S., on the regular due date of your return, you are allowed an automatic 2-month extension to file your return and pay any amount due without requesting an extension. For a calendar year return, the automatic 2-month extension is to June 15. U.S. Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad | Internal Revenue Service (irs.gov) International Individuals | Internal Revenue Service (irs.gov) This should help you.
  4. Why are you unhappy today?

    Hi John, I sure hope he will get better and have a few more years. I did pray for him, since you said he asked you for prayer. 
  5. Three-word story

    The Santa Clause
  6. Three-word story

    and a cherry
  7. I remember my 3rd grade teacher reading us The Mouse and the Motorcycle. Though I don't remember much of the story, I do remember loving it. That book must have been what got me started on Cleary's books, as I read many more.
  8. Three-word story

    I hope not.  
  9.   Well, in that case, I guess I haven't had the flu since I was a kid.
  10.   I had the flu last week, but it was nothing to talk about-just a 24-hour bug. I have not have Covid, nor have I had the vaccination.
  11. Yep! I see that good-looking Piggie, hanging from the rafters. Hope you're not warping into a bat!  
  12.   Yep! The pic does make me smile. She's a beautiful girl!  
  13. School visa requirements

    Not that this would be the case for you, but my undergraduate is in International Studies. I had planned to go into translation, which did not happen. There wasn't much I could do with my International Studies degree at the undergraduate level. I wouldn't recommend a degree in international relations, unless you know exactly what you are aiming for. I wished I had gotten a teaching degree (in the U.S.) and then gotten work at an international school. This would have given me something concrete and likely fulltime work.  -Just some things for you to think about. 
  14. I'm guessing the Mieterverein could help. Are you a member? 
  15. Yeah, I had previous done some research, but couldn't figure out how to translate these phrases. I figured I could just explain to them what they need to know. I suppose that is also what I'll do with the phrase Secondary English. Thanks for the help.
  16. Is there anyone familiar with the U.S. education system for training teachers that would have an idea how to translate: Graduate Certificate in... endorsement in...?  This would be for a Lebenslauf.
  17. Merry Christmas to all on TT

    Merry Christmas to you, John and to everyone else with TT affiliation! 
  18. English Teaching

      I definitely would love to be back in Germany. It is just not an option yet. I just wondered if they would be able to get me a work permit, since I am a U.S. citizen and I would only move back to Germany if I was sure I'd have a job. Anyway, if you are looking for someone this year, then I do hope you'll find someone. 
  19. English Teaching

    I did see this and looked at it with much interest, but I am currently doing elder care in the U.S. and I have no idea when I might be able to come back to Germany. Anyway, I just thought I'd say that at least someone saw it-me. Would they even think about hiring someone from outside the EU?
  20.   That reminds me, when I was in Germany for my first year, I worked for a family and I was supposed to buy bread often. The family had a lot of Halbweißbrot (literally-half white bread) because I could pronounce that type of bread easily. 
  21. You're probably overthinking this, but someone may beg to differ. 
  22. What made you smile today?

    You must mean bolded. I was looking for huge chubby letters.
