Just as with the States where accents abound, I learned German in an area that was similar to Southern accents here. People from other areas of Germany had difficulty understanding what I was saying and I had difficulty understanding them.

I spent 5 years in Stuttgart and learned quite a bit but more out of meeting chicks and my job (LEO). learned early (from a chick) that they all german kids are required to take english in school but they would not talk english to you unless you talked (or tried) to talk german to them. worked well and taught me more of the language. of course that was 25 years ago.

Ich kann gut Deutsch lesen und sprechen, aber es ist manchmal schwer meine Großeltern von Österreich zu verstanden. Sie sprechen "redneck" Deutsch.

The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius
Go to Heaven for the climate, go to Hell for the company.

While I grew up with the ability to understand German, I never actually learned how to speak and write it. My curiousity was peaked, so yes, I used Google Translator.

I plan to learn Spanish, as my husbands family is of Mexican/Native American descent and all speak it. I wish my kiddo to grow up bilingual.
