Minored in German in college; studied abroad one year in Salzburg, Austria; several courses at Goethe-Institut here in Chicago.
Of German heritage. I consider German language, history and culture as one of my hobbies. I have made several trips to Germany and Austria and hope to make several more in my lifetime!
Um mein Deutsch zu ueben.
At the meeting I attended, there were some native German speakers who were really helpful. The German speaking abilities of the non-native speakers run the gamut. I felt a little rusty, but it doesn't matter. Everyone is very supportive.
