Making slow progress

Studying a new language is full of surprises, some of them pleasant and some of them a little frustrating. My German is making slow progress, partly due to the fact that my learning skills in the anguage department are taking time to get the cobwebs out of the gears and start the wheels turning.

Having said that, my vocabulary is starting to expand, my understanding of the use of "Der/Die/Das" and in the plural of anything "Die" is coming along. So is the declension of verbs which take -e, -st, - en, or -e in the singular (1st, 2nd and 3rd person) and -en, or -t on the end of the word for the plurals. Don't forget the gender, because that can throw a spanner as well. And then there are the preositions...

Oh well, if you want to live in a country that doesn't speak English, you'd better learn the language. It could be worse, we could be trying to master Polish I suppose.
