For the record , it is proven that grammaticlally speaking , German is one of the "toughest" languages to learn in the world . . . much more tough to learn than , for example , English . .
But I know that the German language is held high in countries like the USA ( hey , a lot of Americans have German ancestry
) and also a subject in school . . .
I know , if German wasn't my native tongue , I wouldn't want to be in the position to have to learn it . . .
I can say that I learned English pretty much by myself . .
I'm not from an academic family background but , over the course of time , learned some things in an autodidactic way . .Including English . .
Apart from that I had a friend living abroad (England) whom I visited there very often . . . R. I. P.
