Today, whilst working as a language assistant in Germany as part of my degree, some 9 year-old German kids asked me to please speak English to them because my German was so poor. FML

Face it, a German degree from the University of Phoenix isn't going to get you far anyways. They should have sent you to a place where you could dazzle them with your mad German skillz, like Antarctica. Penguins love guttural languages.

at least he said please:/

you should try and speak your first language first

should have got Rosetta stone...

there goes your confidence of attaining fluent german..... FYL

lol. ich glaube das nicht! (not sure if that's right, only a third year HS German student)

YDI for saying "whilst" :P

25 - I took Rosetta stone for Spanish, and it sucked. I did so much better in a normal class. But I guess it's all a matter of how you learn.

did you ask Drake?

That's funny

well in germany the kids learn how to speak english when they are in first grade

Depending on where you are in Germany, they may speak a different dialect. I lived there for a bit and if you travel a couple hours in any direction, you've entered another region

Tell them you'll throw them in the oven.

lol time to change majors?

He majorly failed.

at least he said please:/

don't be such a douchswitchnuger.

*saukrel ^-^ means (beeeeep) ;) BRING THE POPTARTS, OH FREAKS! rawr )':

"saukrel" doesn't mean anything, it's not a word, at least not a german or english one.

I think they meant "saukerl". That's a word.

I agree with number 3

maybe you should take a german speaking class.
