Alexander Mutale – Deutschland

Among all the things that I have to learn, the language stands out more at the moment. But unfortunately it is the one giving me the hardets time here in Germany. I´m learning very slowly. People in the house are helping me a little, while people in the school are helping me a little more. I say a little more, because I do not understand all that they teach me. This is because they teach us in german language, which I can neither speak nor understand. It is like bringing two darkness together hoping to see light at the end. Because of this I am really having a hard time here in learning german. However I keep in mind that this is just a matter of time. Someday I will able to speak as fluently and confidently as an german citizen. (Mai 2003)
