>Why can't the English get German right?

I'm not English, Britta, I'm Australian, and a lot of English-speakers have
trouble getting *English* right!
i.e. "They was",  "I seen", "the crew were",  "If a child is taught well
they will learn"... etc.

So, how on Earth are we to manage German?  <g>
I've got to hand it to you, Irena and a few others - you speak better
English than I do.
