Anyone on here fluent/semi-fluent in German, and non-native?
Any particular tips, other than of course moving to a German speaking country. At the minute I am using Podcasts, exchanging emails with native speakers who want to improve their English, and conversing where possible with German speakers at work (luckily I work with a Swiss Bank at the minute). I've heard films are good, to help you immerse yourself in the language...
It's the Beat's birthday today, the great man turns 60 years young. I have noticed on (whispers) Twitter that there is a campaign to get the PR crowd to have a minutes applause on the hour mark to pay our respects to Beattie.
I know he has had his misgivings, but the bloke is very much Ipswich through and through and, if it weren't for injury, could have been a national and not just a local treasure.
I don't particularly care if you think this sort of thing is silly, or trendy for the sake of it. I just thought it was an idea worthy of a mention on here, and one I am definitely going to be a part of on Saturday.
Stayed in all morning. Left at half 12 annoyed. Just before I got on the tube at 12.45 I check on my phone, and it says they attempted delivery at 12.37, without phoning me, and have left a card. I phone company, to say please contact driver. They say they can't phone their own delivery drivers :|. Madness.
