"Ich liebe dich, Mama!"
We've done some Muzzy German, and Mikro really enjoyed the cartoon video tapes. He has very nearly perfected the "ich" sound, which makes me happy, as does his sudden propensity for declaring "Ich liebe dich, Mama!" (Transl.-- I love you.)
Muzzy is a fun introduction to the sounds of the language, and we'll be borrowing it again from the library. I'll also be coming up with other fun things to do with German. I used to be nearly fluent, but it has been about 20 (oh, cripes, actually make that closer to 30!!!) years since I did much with it, so I'm rusty, but hopefully competent at the basics... This will be a good way for me to brush up, too!
