'''Beginners'''
+
*[[user:Christie|Christie]] 2 year study in high school, many years ago.
+
*[[user:maltman23|Mitch]] I can sorta order food.
+
*[[user:Yerdua|Audrey]] I can have really basic conversations, very slowly.
+
*[[user:ieatlint|Jeffrey]] I've two years of German and can eek through very simplistic conversations.
+
* Stella Is rapidly losing what little knowledge she had of the language. Tends to speak in convoluted, pseudo-grammatical forms, when she speaks at all.
+
*[[user:dougygyro|Doug]] Invents bizzare, extraneous compound words to express ideas he does not know the correct word for. Which is all of them.
+
* J.D.'s parents spoke German when he was a young child. Some words now sound familiar, and the phonemes remind him of his childhood.
+
* [[user:Hardy stevenson|Hardy]]=>like JD my moms deutch and so I hope some of the language survives back in the cobwebs of my brane...
+
 
+
'''Advanced'''
+
*[[user:Ioerror|Jacob]] I am able to converse about certain subjects. However, I cannot properly express my philosophic outlook speaking or in writing. My ability to read in German is quite limited.
+
*[[user:Elgreengeeto|Skory]] Similar to Jacob, or at least used to be.
+
*[[User:Rain|Rain]] I'm a native german speaker, who likes teaching/learning all kinds of languages and have inspiring talks about technology, philosophy, art and culture.
+

+
Basically, it'd be nifty, if advanced speakers did come later. Drop me an email, and let me know. To warm everybody up a bit, try this on for fun. It is called an Ohrwurm--a song that sticks in your head, um an ear-worm. Bad songs have this great ability to cement phrases, content and grammar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLTWTKpP7g0. - Charlotte

: Well, a better Ohrwurm might be "Ohrwurm" from the German a cappella band "The Wise Guys" which you can find at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U4cNlIPcro . Have fun with the songs of those guys - they sing with a quite clean German pronounciation (and quite easy to follow). Also I recommend the songs "Meine Deutschlehrerin" and "Denglisch" (note that those heavily play with the language though ;-)).
