I've lived in Bavaria (Bayern) since 1999 and have struggled to learn the German language in all that time. I haven't even attempted Bavarian.

Although my blunders have become less comical over time and I am now quite used to the way Germans do things, I still retain a certain Britishness in my speech and actions and I don't suppose I'll ever quite master the complexities of the German grammar system.
