Re: Wozniacki interview
I went to 2 different elementary school, so that is a total of 45 peers for me, 3 of these didn't take German. And what these 3 had in common was the fact that they all had trouble with English and Danish(one of them couldn't even spell his own name), so teaching them German would be a waste of time for all involved. Instead they were given extra Danish lessons. In high school all from my class had German, and since German for the first two years of high school is an oral subject - only if it is chosen on your last year, will you be having a written exam - we all could speak decent German. Of course grammar was taught to some degree, but the main focus was speaking.
Now I don't really have contact with those people anymore, so I can't say if they still speak German, I know I still speak it. Yes you can def. hear I am Danish and I make a lot of grammar mistakes, but when I was in Stuttgart in 2007 and in Berlin in 2008, I didn't have any problems at all in communicating, and it's been 10 years since I left high-school.
But anyway, fact is, Caro didn't list German as one of her languages, and she must know best. All I said is, I was surprised based on my own life.
