When I was a kid (about 2 years old) my dad was in the states for a longer period at the university of North Carolina and my mum and I visited him in North Carolina. That is why we have many friends in the US and also why I started talking English quite early. Perfect in school – I never had any grammar mistakes in my texts because I justwrote texts that sounded right to me. It only got a major problem at university because there I needed to know the grammar by heart and studying grammar is really hard!
Being in North Carolina and the US regularly as a kid had so many advantages for me. I grew up with tapes from Sesame Street, a stuffed Big Bird, the Berenstain Bears series, which I knew by heart and still love.
As you can see I am a Sesame Street Junkie and I am so sorry for everyone who grew up with the German version of it because it so much worse than the original.
Today I found this cartoon and I need to share this with you because it is so hilarious.
