Ich möchte nur mit MuttersprachlerInnen sprechen. Wir können uns auf Englisch und Deutsch unterhalten, ich möchte nicht nur auf Englisch sprechen. Ich will, dass jedem Fehler korrigiert wird. *I am only speaking to native German speakers.*

My learning goals

Ich möchte flüssiger und “erhobener” sprechen. Es ist eine Weile seit ich regelmässig auf Deutsch gesprochen habe, also ich möchte mein Wortschatz verbessern und erweitern. Ich habe auch das Gefühl, dass meine Grammatik verschlechtert ist. Brauche Übung!
