But, I will never be able to master the German language. Punkt.
I can sometimes feel on cloud nine, breezing through a conversation, when BOOM I say the wrong gender for a word or a use the wrong type of word, mistaking verbs and adjectives and nouns… Or sometimes I get into so much detail, that I suddenly lose my trail of thought and forget which verbs I have to say at the end (for example, the word order of a long sentence may be something like: “Well, so far I know, would have he his homework for his English class already last week do should” (or, in English: “Well, as far as I know, he should have already done his homework for his English class last week.”) – I get entangled in the object of the sentence that I forget what is actually happening to that object. 904 more words
