“Ihr Deutsch ist sehr gut!”

I guess these are the first words in German language on this blog. They translate to “You speak German very well!”. What made this sentence strange is that I was at the receiving end of it! How come? I booked my last big trip for this year’s vacation and I sat next to an elderly man who curiously looked at my Japanese books.

So then he started talking and after talking with me for a while, he said “Ihr Deutsch ist sehr gut!”.

Um, thank you?

Of course he intended it as a compliment especially for not having a foreign accent. Phew, I guess that avoiding a lengthy stay in a Japanese village and avoiding dancing with wolves paid off🙂
