hello.

how long did it take for you to become proficient in German?

and do you know how long would someone who has only a rudimentary (close to nothing) command of the language have to take classes until he becomes proficient enough and qualified to study in a German university?

thanks.

Incidentally, truth can be defamatory. At least in Singapore.

Ach so, auch ein Singapurer, der Deutsch kann! Wo haben Sie Deutsch gelernt? Es ist ja interessant, dass man Singlish und Deutsch mischt. Hoffentlich wuerden Sie mehr Singapurische-Denglisch schreiben!

To misery:
German takes quite a bit of time, since it’s a more complex language compared to English. It took me about 4 years to become fluent in the language and that was with a rather limited vocabulary.

heheh, check this out!

@Chinamann: 10 Jahre Hannover reicht wohl jedem. Ich hatte dort 25 zu erleiden, bis ich die Stadt dann endlich verlassen habe. Jetzt hin- und hergerissen zwischen San Francisco und Hongkong. Ach ja. 🙂

Interessantes Blog! Gerade erst drüber gestolpert.

Habe 10 Jahre in Hannover gelebt, bin nun 10 Jahre weg, und vermisse die Stadt jeden Tag – so unterschiedlich sind Menschen!

Dear blogger of Die Neue Welle,

I apologise for leaving my request as a comment as there is no other way for me to reach you. I am a PhD candidate from the Communications and New Media programme at the National University of Singapore, and my research examines political blogging and activism. “Die Neue Welle” came up in my sampling process and I am writing to you to seek your valued participation in a survey.

WHAT is this study about?
Without saying too much to bias your responses, my study concerns bloggers’ online usage, their social networks and their participation/non-participation in activism. Whether you have participated or have not participated in any activism activity, your responses will be vital in helping me gather empirical evidence on blogging and its effects.

WHY should you help?
There has been much talk in the media and in the parliament on the rise of blogging and online discourse. But do blogging really impact civic participation? How does it do so? Your responses to the simple survey will go a long way in contributing to the nascent field of research on blogging in Singapore.

HOW can you help?
The survey involves easy-to-answer questions (e.g. Yes/No, ratings of “1” to “5”) and will take only about 20 minutes of your time. Based on your preference, I can conduct the survey via email (or any other ways you prefer). Just reply to this email and I will send you the survey form.

Please help!
Bearing in mind the potential difficulties in getting an adequate sample for such a study, I would like to stress that every single participation counts. In addition, this study has been approved by the NUS Ethical Review Committee. You have my complete assurance that all your responses will be kept strictly confidential and your identity anonymous.

I have attached a Participation Information Sheet for more information. Do visit http://www.fas.nus.edu.sg/cnm/research%20students/2006_grad_carol.htm for a brief write-up of my profile (please cut and paste if the link doesn’t work). Being a student with no funding support, I am bearing all research costs and appealing to your goodwill (and hopefully curiosity?) to take part in this study.

I look forward to hearing positively from you soon. Thank you for reading this email and giving my request your due consideration.

Best regards,

Carol Soon
