Native German speaker, bilingual, bicultural
From Germany, my hometown is Kiel
Born, raised and mostly educated in Germany, I have lived most of my life in the USA and worked as seminary professor and pastor. Currently, in my retirement, I serve as the pastor of a German speaking congregation in Naperville.
There was no German language and no group, rather all spoke English only to each other, and nobody welcomed or organized anythin g like a group. I was new and never figured out what was going on. Was anybody in charge? Very poor indeed. Sorry, I came.
