Advent Calendar Day 6
The 6th of December already. have you been good? Did St Nicholas bring you anything?
Today’s post is from Gill. Thank you, Gill!
My name is Gill & I started having lessons in German after going on holiday to Austria. I decided that I would like to converse in the language & understand more for my future visits to Austria. I hope also to visit Germany next year.
My German lessons with Angelika began about 5 years ago. I did have lessons at school many years ago and this helped me with starting again 45 years later!
I particularly like learning German grammar (am I unusual??). The games & puzzles in the lessons help me to remember the rules (and exceptions to the rules).
I’ve benefitted already from learning German when on my Austrian holidays. The first time I went, I managed “ja, nein und danke” and had no confidence for any more than that. I now speak mostly in German – Austrians are very tolerant!
I am semi-retired & work part-time in an office.
I have a husband and one son. My husband & I have our German lesson together which is quite interesting. When we first started lessons with Angelika he was a complete beginner. I thought he was very brave to start from scratch at his age [!!] but he is really enjoying it.
