Hi all, Thanks for your comments. It's really interesting to hear it from all of your point of views!
Aloges, I know what you mean. I am doing my German A-Level (Abitur) at the moment and I do it a very challenging language. The hardest thing in the German language (or the hardest thing I have learnt about up to this date) is the passive tense. For Example:
ich wurde beobachtet - I was observed
ich bin beobachtet worden - I have been observed
ich war beobachtet worden - I had been observed
But the hardest one of them all:
ich werde beobachtet werden - I will be observed
It is especially difficult when it is in the middle or the end of a sentence. For Example:
Sie wollte die Prüfung schreiben, weil sie beobachtet werden wird-
She wanted to do the test, because she was being observed.
Not a very creative sentence I know, but it was the only example I could think of.
Prebennorholm, why Scotsmen can't speak proper English is beyond me
Fritzi, French was just impossible, and so I gave it up!
