What have I been doing lately?
– I spent more than two hours on Saturday speaking to a girl who, while not a native German speaker, has lived in Berlin for 15 years. That was fun!
– Watched “Ziemlich beste Freunde” in German.
– Watched lots of episodes of “Eine schrecklich nette Familie”.
– I’ve been listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks and I’ve recently acquired the Harry Potter movies in German.
In the 330 days I’ve been studying German I’ve only talked the language in two different occasions. My level of understanding in these kind of interactions has been very high. While I’m not too much of a social person, I do like knowing that I can carry out a conversation in German without difficulty. I do make grammar mistakes due to my brain not having enough time to formulate perfect sentences, but I notice most if not all of them.
I’m using the book “Using German Synonyms” to get new sentences. By the way, I lost many of my old ones on my flashcards, so my count went down a bit ^_^. No biggie!
Thinking in German becomes so much easier after having spoken in German for a while!
