Europe?
I think the europeans are spread pretty thin here on the forum...but who all is there? It would be nice to see who is at least in the same time zone!

Well, hello over there! I go to Amsterdam and Groningen fairly regularly....in fact, we almost moved to Amsterdam, but landed in Hamburg instead!

Well, Amsterdam and Groningen are a bit far from where I live (Rosmalen, near 's-Hertogenbosch), but I go to college near the German border (Nijmegen)

This post's Swedish word/phrase: "Jag bor i Sverige" = "I live in Sweden"
_____


Another European here! I'm in Malmö, Sweden.

Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch aber I habe jahrelang kein Deutsch gesprochen oder gelesen. Ich finde es schwierig in Deutsch zu denken als mein Kopf erst in Englisch denkt. Ich habe viel von der Grammatik vergessen...

Vielleicht soll ich ein Buch in Deutsch gelesen?

Hallo da im Norden!

We can almost wave at each other over the Baltic Sea....

German is *really* hard to learn. I've been living here for almost 2 decades and while I would say I'm fluent, my grammar still isn't perfect. I read alot in German, and watching german TV helped me learn alot too.

Well, I can read german, I understand someone who speaks german, but writing it or talking in german is a bit to difficult for me. I used to be able to do that, but it's been to long since I used it. Although dutch sounds a lot like german, it's not the same at all.

When I go to Amsterdam, I find it very easy to read signs, menus, simple things like that - dutch words often times are similar to either german or english, so if you can speak those two languages you can usually get the general meaning of something written in dutch.

But I don't understand a word of spoken dutch - beyond "thanks" and "hello" anyway!
