CONTEST – language acquisition

Occasionally, I will be hosting contests on this blog. For the first one, I’m keeping the question simple and the prize will be a small drawing.
Be the first to post the correct answer as a comment and
you win a drawing of your choosing!

If you see a drawing that you would like to own, then contact me and we can discuss prices and delivery.
All my drawings are for sale and
you can find more at
my website.

Scroll to the bottom to find the first contest question. If you win, you’ll get to choose your drawing from the selection below.
They are 3 x 5 inch, graphite on paper,
from the Granite Wall series
that I discussed in an
earlier post.

I’ve wanted to be fluent in a foreign language for many years. In 2004 I spent 4 days in Berlin and loved the city so much that I decided German was going to be the language. I’ve been studying it ever since, and am anxious to go back to Germany and really hone this skill. There will be more posts, more videos and more ideas about language acquisition to come, but first:

Find the German word that I used somewhere in the first 12 posts of this blog, be the first to post the word as a comment and win one of my drawings. This is not a trick question. It is a very simple word. The answer is not merely an English word of Germanic origin, but is affirmatively a word that a German speaker would use … regularly.

Good Luck!
