Though IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m quite experienced in reading English, I didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t write much in it, recently (okaaay, except from three-word sentences on application forms). Soon, IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll have to write much English stuff at university, though. So letÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s start practising by blogging on the English blog more often. ;) (Maybe it also pushes visitor statistics on fredericiana.comÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ Currently itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s very seldomly visited by anyone. No wonder for it has only a handful of articles right now)
So, thereÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s a blog I want to recommend: ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s called German Joys (written by a law professor from Duesseldorf, Germany) and has a nice category very worth reading: "German Word of the Week". Once a week, he very interestingly describes strange German words. ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s quite funny so reading it is not even boring for native speakers like me.
Just take a look a this weekÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s word: Stoibern. (Behaving like the State Minister of Bavaria, Edmund Stoiber :) )
