Learning the Language
I don't speak the German. No sprechen sie kien deutsch. ( I don't even know if I spelled that correctly). However, I think it's important to speak the language when visiting a foreign country. Between now and the spring I'll study and hope to be able to express myself. Lately, I've been listening to German language cds at night. Thus far I've mastered counting to ten. When I do burpees, I do them in groups of ten counting out loud in German. Eins, zwei, drei.... Once I learn to count beyond 10 I can do higher quantities of burpees at once.
