Yeah, my German has definitely improved since I’ve gotten here! I still have a lot to learn, and my grammar is no where near perfect when I talk, but I know I’ve improved. I’m much more confident when it comes to speaking in German, and that makes it easier to practice my pronunciation, work on my grammar, and learn new/better ways to say something in German. I can also understand more of what people are saying to me. I still have problems, especially when people speak in dialect, but I know I’ve improved there too. I think being able to communicate with strangers is also a sign that my German’s improved.
There are probably other ways I’ve noticed my German improving, but those are the only ones I can think of right now :P
I baked traditional German Christmas cookies today, and I swear, I have no idea how the Germans stay so fit. All the Christmas foods are so good, but not so kind to your waistline…
Anyway, I’ll try to post pictures of our lovely creations soon! :)
Awwww thanks Sam!! ^^
1. I spent the day at the Christmas market in Rothenburg and it was so beautiful there!

4. My room looks like a bomb went off in it
5. I’ve got Christmas music playing like 24/7 now that it’s on the radio again :)
UPDATE: Hurricane Xaver hit northern German late Thursday morning and its strength surpassed expectations. Water levels are expected to rise far high than initially thought, putting cities like Hamburg in danger of flooding.
Please stay safe you guys <33
I flipped over the paper that had all those grammar tips written on them, and I found some tips for German prepositions written on them! So as soon as I get some free time, I’ll post those for you guys :)
