Bitte was? An American author's misadventures in the German language

I'm an American author who's lived in Germany for six years. My work has appeared in many popular books, including four books from the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series. My words can also be read at The Huffington Post. I've also had the honor of being interviewed for such radio shows as The Daily Wrap from The Wall Street Journal with Michael Castner.

In "Bitte was?", I tackle the language of German in this humorous story of how I struggled to relearn the language, after being away from it for over 20 years. No one is off limits when it comes to poking a bit of fun, not even me!

Welcome to the real world of language!

     
I'm not a teacher or professor. This isn't a language book or a dry instruction manual. My world is not the clean or pristine environment of a classroom, where you'd hear perfect German spoken from professional performers. (Who speaks in any language perfectly?)

I write about the real world and what I've encountered as I struggled to relearn German, one of the world's most difficult languages. Hopefully, you won't make the same mistakes I've made.

 

Listen as I read an excerpt.

 

If you've ever taken a foreign language and tried to say something in "perfect" German (or French or Spanish or Mandarin), only to realize you made a terrible mistake, THIS STORY IS FOR YOU!

If you've ever said something that left the other person completely speechless or shocked, or you've said something you thought was a compliment, only to realize you said something extremely rude, THIS STORY IS FOR YOU!

Or maybe you're studying a language in school now and you want to understand what it's like to hold real conversations in the real world.

Then, THIS STORY IS FOR YOU!
