My english was poor by education in school, so poor that at my first journey to Kenya I was barely unable to easily order a taxi and tell the destination. After that I learned by listening and speaking, neglecting support by dictionaries and grammatical tutorials, to arrive at a somehow fluent speaking and writing (but with some surviving typical errors). Much much later I discovered the discussion in forums in the internet and reactivated my rough and uneducated english... But basically: I love to be precise in words and thinking, so I like some lyric and some fine-tuned prosa in german language and even in english much.
