Well, I studied English everywhere: in kindergarden, in primary school, in high school, then after high school (in 2-year - after final exam - education)

And I tell you I studied English for 18 years (Since I no longer go to school, etc., but that's another theme.)

In high school I studied German as a third language, but I only know basics, which we studied: greeting forms (Hallo, Guten tag, etc.), and many others. If you get what I mean.
Yeah, piece of cake!

So you have grown up with it then - my apologies! Nothing I said changes though. :)

Heck mate, I'm going on seventeen years of learning Japanese and I'm hardly fluent, in my opinion. It takes a lot of time to learn the intricacies of a language, it really does.

Language learning and game modding/game making are my skills.

Szemi, your English is just fine. Don't worry about it. Even if you're not technically correct here and there, we all know what you mean =)
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

This ^^^ I have heard far worse English from supposed native speakers (myself included)

In my opinion, as long as you can communicate your point, the rest is just nicety. And I have never had serious problems understanding you Szemi :)

However you will want to double-check with a native speaker before getting and English tattoo.
