Give us a little of your background... What brings you here?

Now that I'm retired, I have more time to travel. I have joined several German Meetup groups so I can keep track of events in different cities. If all goes well, I will be able to take part in a German Meetup when I visit Bellevue!

How did you learn German? What level are you?

I've learned mainly via the Internet. But it was my Grandmother (mother's mother) who taught me my first words (She was born in Essen in Germany.)

Favorite Bier? Favorite coffee?

St. Pauli Girl

Lived/Worked/Studied abroad? Are you abroad now?

I lived for six months once in Zurich.

What's your favorite foreign word (and why)?

stehenden Fußes = sogleich = immediately. I like "stehenden Fußes"because it sounds almost like the opposite of what it means!


I'm a retired businessman who is learning German as a hobby. You can access my German Stories on Facebook at http://facebook/g...­.
