Lost in translation

It is amazing that I can perfectly communicate in what I consider to be flawless, fast, correct German with my classmates (from Morocco, Argentina, Chile, Ukraine, Philippines, Poland, Turkey, Albania, Holland, Thailand, Hungary, Brazil), but seem to be speaking and listening to a completely different language when I try to talk to a German...

Maybe the Germans should join these Deutsch als Fremdsprache (German as a Foreign Language) courses to be able to communicate with me.

  1. lol, and I feel the other way around. In the course I feel I cannot talk since they expect me to have flawless grammar :S. But with Andi's friends is easier. At leat they don't say "Leute, Sie sind B2 jetz, so Sie mussen dass kennen" :(
