I was trying to say,

Good day

My name is Barnaby

I come from Sout East England. My father was from Germany and I used to visit Germany as a child.

I used to speak German quite well as a child however I am very rusty now.

I hope to learn again.

I'll introduce myself properly in english.

My name is Barnaby and I live in Essex in South East England. My father was German but lived in England from 1968. I used to visit my grandparents every year who lived in Bad Salzuflen, North Rhiene Westphalia.

I was always encouraged to learn German as a child and took German at school. When I left school at 18, I went to work in Germany and learnt lots more German by just being there.

That was 15 years ago, and because I haven't needed to speak German in such a long while, I have become so rusty that I can't even write a letter to reletives in Germany without using 'Google Translate'

I find it very frustrating that I have forgotten so much. It feels like I have to learn all over again.

I am very proud of my German heritage and would like to go back to Germany and visit my relatives, but the state of my German speaking is so poor, it would be embarassing.

I think that my main weakness is grammar.


(BTW if anyone would like to translate what I have just typed, they are more than welcome ;))
