Vielen Dank Iselin. Ich habe Deutsch fuer 5 Jahren in die Schule studiert. Ich habe ein paar Brieffreundinnen in Deutschland und Oesterreich und kann Deutsch noch ein bisschen schreiben. Ich liebe auch ein paar Buecher jedes Jahr auf Deutsch zu lesen. Ich bin etwas aus der Uebung aber hoffentlich vergesse ich nicht alles!
