i met my boyfriend 2 years ago when he was on exchange at my University, visiting from Germany. we fell in love and decided to commit to one another even though it meant spending nearly a year apart. after that difficult first year where we only say each other for a total of 2 months, he decided to move to vancouver to be with me. his english is really good, but sometimes he struggles to find a word especially when we are having deep or meaningful conversations. the other problem is the fact that his parents speak very little english. i tried my best to communicate with them when i visited germany, but it was still very difficult. anyways, i made it a resolution to learn german this year.
i have all 5 levels of the rosetta stone german and i have been very, very, very slowly making my way through the first level. i’m supposed to be doing 30 minutes every day in order for the learning to be effective… yeah, i’m not even close to that! i feel like a disappointment, but i find it hard to find the motivation to sit down and learn a language at the end of my day! ugh. what a lame excuse!
