I passed last Monday the theoretical driving license exam.And now I am blogging in English? Why? To reach the largest possible audience? In the last 4-6 weeks I contemplated a lot about improving my German langauge. But this improvement happens very slowly. When I go into bookshops, and they are everywhere here in German, I still could not read and understand what is written in the books. German is very hard! How much more one needs to learn German? Probably a lot! But the problem, when I want to publish a research, or read about any thing then reading in English provides me with a lot more information. Wikipedia articles, for example, the English versions of articles are 3-5 times longer and more detailed than the German versions talking about the same topic.
So, if my aim to acquire information and then to publish it, then why learn a new langauge? English is everywhere now in science and in everyday life!
Therefore, I think that I am now more and more going to use and read only English! Investing time in any other langauge in our current time requires a lot of time and effort… And the information and the ability to communicate is the best in English!
