What is your level of language? / How much have you studied?

I speak German at a basic, conversational level. In the past I have studied German at the Goethe Institute and at the University of Heidelberg in Heidelberg Germany. My German has deteriorated over the years and I would like to start studying again with the goal of becoming fluent.

Are you from Germany, of German heritage, or just interested in learning German?

I am not from German heritage but my father was an aeronautical engineer and lived in Germany for several years. I was influenced by my Fathers fascinating German stories, photos and memorabilia at a very young age. I've also really grown to appreciate the contributions Germans have made to the world in the arts, science, technology and engineering.
