Most German can speak english. English is a wordwide language, most people can speak and understand it. Also my second language is Spanish too, the words are sometimes hard to speak.

My second language is Spanish, but I don't really like it. I have trouble hearing the words.

no, it shouldnt, if you do a little thing called listening. i cannot stress this enough: with a 3.95 gpa, i can say the one thing that has made me succesful is my listening skills. and listening to a foreign language more causes learning to come quicker.
