We are trying to get Thomas to read 30 minutes per day out loud to help improve his German. Thomas has been home almost 4 years. He was adopted when he was almost 7 years old. Launguage is still an issue. He has been learning English and German at the same time. I think German is a really hard language to learn. I've lived here for 11 years and I still speak really bad German. Really, Thomas does great. He has had so much to overcome! He is a smart boy.
