    I mean just listening to it being spoken. When I hear people speaking German, it reminds me of driving a Jeep at 50mph across a recently planted Maize field.

    Nope, I do not. I'm half Irish, but I've never actually been to Ireland. That half of my family migrated to the US from Ireland in 1798. My other half, (German) migrated in 1709.

    1798 is a very interesting year to have migrated - there was a major rebellion against the British invaders. Your family may have been involved and had to flee to escape being killed by the British?

    Possible. I have no idea. That's on my dad's side and with the exception of the family names and date of migration. That's pretty much all I have about them.

    An update: I've been learning Swiss German. I already speak High German (standard German).
