    manutd: Writing English is easy

    But I've been around quite a few English-speaking people all my life. Business partners of my father's, mostly. I mostly read English books, I try to watch all movies in their original versions, and so on. You pick stuff up. So yeah, I actually speak pretty good English, too.

    As I understand, English is also supposed to be a pretty easy move from German since it is a Germanic language.

    Nice. It doesn't show, in fact, you speak better than some native speakers on this forum

    It is. Lots of words are very close or even the same. There's a heavy word exchange, too.

    The thing with learned languages is that you're a lot more careful about grammar and stuff like that than native speakers.

    One of the ... 13? ... official languages of India I believe. Hindi is sort of considered the Indian language outside India. Or at least here where I live.

    I took like 3 years of German in high school, but I forgot most of it. I might be able to read it still if I'm lucky.
