Beginning in January of 1947, when I was almost three, my father, mother, older brother and I lived for two years in Augsberg and Wiesbaden, Germany. Apparently my brother and I became quite proficient in German…because I just came across this article in the Boise, Idaho newspaper from 1949. We had just returned from our adventures living abroad.
According to the article, my brother and I had “Mastered the Berlin Brogue.”
Another article in the Deseret News says that “ the two acted as interpreters for their mother on shopping tours….”
Okay, well, will that “Berlin Brogue” kick back in 66 years later? Because today, my husband and I begin a grand adventure in Germany for one month.
And, I’m expecting to be able to recall all that German from those many years ago! Ha Ha!
