I only tried taking German for two weeks before conflicts prevented me from continuing.
I must say, it must be a nasty language. A little bit of “business English” goes a long way, and is spoken around the world.

Ist das nicht eine Schnitzelbank?
Ja, das ist eine Schnitzelbank.
Es geht weiter mit:
kurz und lang
hin und her
kreuz und quer
krumm und grad

Ja das ist mit einem freundlichen Gruess,
Ist das nicht interessante News? (noos)
Ja das ist interessante News.....
freundlicher Gruess, interessante News, gefaehrliches Ding, Hochzeitsring...
Oh - die Schoenheit an der Wand, ja das ist eine Schnitzelbank.

ich und Du
Sprung ins Meer
Mann aus Schnee
und, und, und....

I got this.
kreuz und quer - really needs to translsation
Schiessgewehr - The branch of their military which really stinks to be assigned to.
Wagenrad — Little Deuce Coupe
dicke Frau — you betcha!
langer Mann - hello ladies....
gefaehrliches Ding - Goldie Hahn in a bad mood
It’s a problem. Vietnamese keep to themselves and won’t learn English either
The Dutch have gone the same way, and that is one tough language to master.
