Sitting here trying to figure out what to say in German to my coworkers tomorrow about last week's trip to France and Spain. One thing I'll definitely be gushing about is the beautiful San Sebastian coastline! While we're on the topic of languages, I am seriously SO impressed with people who switch between multiple languages with ease. Many Europeans I know speak 3+ languages and it just wows me! I took Spanish from the age of 12-18 and was quite good at it back then but haven't used it much in the past 15 years so it is buried deep somewhere in my brain. Some of it came back to me last week in Spain, but it was hilarious because I found myself often mixing my German and my Spanish. I guess I was speaking Speutsch? 😂😂 If you know more than one language, do you find yourself mixing languages or are you to the point where you can switch back and forth without thinking too much?

  • amandaleeessI did a little Spanish in primary and high school but wouldn't remember enough to converse now! Trying to learn German at the moment - any tips @tallfashionadventures? PS love the scenery and clothes photos!
  • tallwifeYes! Dutch and English is an easy switch, bit throw French or German in and you get very funny words. 😊
  • girlintheprettydressI learnt French and German in school. I was fine with the two on paper but when I was speaking one the other would come out 🙈
  • tallfashionadventures@tallwife haha. Well I was very impressed with how easily you switched between English, German and French when we were in Switzerland!
  • tallfashionadventures@girlintheprettydress sounds like I'm not the only one then! 😀😀
  • tallfashionadventures@amandaleeess That's awesome that you're also learning German. I do have tips! Here is what I have been doing - 1️⃣I've been slowly making my way through the Fluenz language software at home. It's been a great learning tool for me; 2️⃣I also took a 4 week intensive A1.1 course at a local school. It was all in German for 3 hours every day. Definitely helped to accelerate my learning ; 3️⃣ I just started using a tutor via Skype on the website iTalki. I love it so far! There are informal tutors which are less expensive (this is what I am using but he knows his stuff) and then there are formal instructors who are a bit more pricey. You should definitely check it out! I know I should watch more German TV, movies etc. I do listen to German talk radio while driving to work. If I think of any more tips, I'll let you know! And thanks for the complements re my pics 😍
