Lernen, lernen, lernen

For the past two weeks our dining table has turned into something like this. Sheets of paper with German grammar exercises are flying all around the place and I am basically falling asleep and waking up with thoughts in German. (my vocabulary is a bit scarce, but still...)
It's super fun, actually, to learn something you're interested in. I'm always interested in new languages, no matter how super crazy some rules are. (or the word order, in this case). I am a little bit nervous and pretty excited about the following days. I am eager to check my progress in German and to SPEAK, for the very first time, in front of a small audience of native speakers.

I would appreciate it if you could keep your fingers crossed for me, just in case! Positive thoughts always do the trick :)


  1. Hey Lilia :)

    I'm sure you'll do really well and be fluent in no time!
    Here's something to give you hope:


    Much Love,

    1. Oh thank you so much, lady! This video is great - so inspiring! Now I am even more motivated to learn german and, who knows, probably work on my Russian as well! ;)

    2. I'm glad the video inspired you Lilah!! :)

  2. German is so incredibly difficult! I took 4 years of it in high school and 1 year in college and I never would have considered myself fluent...the word order...it always killed me! That and trying to remember if words were der, die, or das!

    1. I know, right? German is really difficult and I feel like I will never be able to speak or write freely (as I can in English). But nothing is impossible, right? :)
