Like most Americans my ancestry traces back to Europe, and I grew up hearing countless stories about all those hard-working Germans I was somehow related to. My dad would say, “Great- Great-Great Uncle Frank came to America with a team of horses, a wagon, and his wife” (in that order too). So in college I decided to fulfill one of my degree requirements by learning German. Taking German was one of the best things I have done and after completing roughly a thousand hours of German language lessons, I definitely have a few opinions on the matter.
