Well I had to learn German in school for a while, plus I spent some time in Austria and Switzerland as well. Actually to the ear I find it a lot easier to listen to the German spoken in Austria or Schwyzertüütsch than standard German.
The word order isn't so bad, but the other grammar rules really piss me off then again I was making progress with one good teacher, then the other one afterwards well she was like the way I feel about some of the Roddick fans here.
