German language

I learnt German in the secondary school. It was a pity that I didn’t like the language because we had quite many hours of German then. Although I had the highest grades I never really learnt it properly. I understand most of it in an everyday conversation but I’ve never tried to speak or write it. Most people can speak English, so I usually help myself with it. They speak German and I speak English. It works alright.
But when I am trying to apply for different kinds of jobs, fluently speaking German is very often a demand (probably also to make a selection, not because it would be actually indispensable for the job itself). That’s why I applied for a German course. I am glad that I am not the only one there who stutters and seeks the correct words to form a sentence (besides, we are all unemployed in our group). But I am not very sure that I will be able to speak German fluently after this course. In any case I will try to do the best I can.

I can read German quite well but whenever I go to German-speaking countries, everyone there speaks great English so I don't use my German!

So you do the same as I do. :)
