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

Those strong, ethnic roots. My father was from Norway. Mom is German. Oh-my-GAWD! I have "um-pah-pah" polka in my veins!!!!

How did you learn German? What level are you?

Mmmmm, mostly from Oma. My mother is now very demented, so I often speak Bayrich to her instead of English.

Favorite Bier? Favorite coffee?

Lowenbrau - but I'm open to taste-testing! Coffee? Surely you mean Schnapps?

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

Nope/Nope/Nope - Also nope. Family duties keep me Seattle bound for now.

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

No answer yet

Introduction

Yodel-lay-hee-hooooo­! Meine Familie ist von Oberbayern, 60 kmr Südlich aus Munchen. Bayrich kann ich gut sprechen, nur Hoch-Deutch ist schwieriger. I would love to interact w/other Krauts. Only know my Mom's generation. Your dirndl-lovin' gal, Rita
