Imke Posted November 4, 2010 Author Share Posted November 4, 2010 I only started learning English in 7th grade. I think it's normal in Germany now to start learning English in primary school though. The English classes here are a big problem though ... we have tons of teachers who actually don't speak English that well ... they teach the students English, some those students set out to become English teachers etc. I've had 4 English teachers in my life, none of them was a native speaker and I remember that my first one taught me lots of crap (especially when it comes to pronunciation). So I don't neccessarily think that we take learning a language more serious over here. :thinking: I actually was quite shocked when some French and American students told me something like "Well, you're German of course your English is good." There are tons of people here who can't really talk English either, it's not neccessarily an American thing to not take learning another language seriously.
