  1. Speaking German like a Native

      There'a that, and I think partly the culture of having "correctness" drummed in to you from an early age. You are only getting grilled as much as a native speaker was used to growing up.
  2. Speaking German like a Native

      I used to hang around with a language tutor at a high profile institution in Frankfurt.   One time I used a German word and he told me it was incorrect. I told him where I'd learned it.   Later he told me he checked Duden and it was real.
  3. Speaking German like a Native

    Only my 2nd kid lived in Germany since before they could even speak, but even the older one was speaking fluently and getting as good or better grades than "native speakers" by the time we left.
  4. The " where are you really from " thread!!

        Not everyone but most.   Small country vibes.   I just got bored of it.
  5. Why is Football (Soccer) a bad sport

      Flobbing   And   Flopping
  6. Politics Gen XYZ

      I wonder how many little green men RasPutin sent to take over Crimea?   If they had modern weapons a small number of organized jackholes could do a lot of damage.

  9. The " where are you really from " thread!!

    I get angry about this constantly.   Born in England, moved to East Asia before I was 1, also did time in Aus, now a German citizen, living in Lithuania...   ...I normally say "I'm from HERE, what about you?"
