Okay, let’s face the facts: my German sucks. Every time someone says something to me in German, my first reaction is to either respond in Spanish or Indonesian or (surprisingly) Japanese. As a result, I am left stammering my way through a ragtag collection of phrases in several languages, and no one, not even I, can understand what I am trying to say. So I am too intimidated to attempt to practice speaking my piss-poor German because the Germans are not very forgiving of idiots (forgetting of course, that they also were beginning German speakers once, too. Nevermind that they were wearing diapers when they were beginners).
So I have been listening to a bunch of videos in the hopes that I might run across something like the wonderful and fun Finnish language videos by Sulkasiipi. (I still want to change my name to Sulkasiipi and go around the EU, speaking Finnish). This video is more fun and entertaining than most that I’ve run across so far.
