No, unfortunately I don't speak German, and for some reason, I'm finding it impossible to remember any useful (or not) German phrases either. My vocabulary hasn’t really progressed past dankeshein and gutentag. I spend most of my time apologetically approaching strangers asking if they speak any English or even French. It's therefore a good thing for me that many Germans speak English. I don't ever remember French being this difficult to pick up!
I never thought I'd say this but it’s a total relief to speak French to Pépé when he gets home from work in the evenings. After signing my way through the day to get my message across, an airbus on full throttle couldn't have stopped me from blabbing away in French for 3 hours straight. Well, you know, when you have no TV or German bingo blaring in the background, you have enough material to whinge away for 3 hours.
