I speak German, English and French (mother tongue) at a high level and love the linguistic diversity.
Especially when writing, expressions of creative grammatical handling creep in from time to time. I apologize for any inconvenience.
My knowledge of Italian is a bit rusty; my Spanish is very elementary.
Not to unlearn my language do I learn other languages, I just walk through foreign gardens to get flowers for my language.
-Johann Gottfried Herder
