Thread Name: Help: singing in German
Subject: RE: Help: singing in German
Back to the subject of the use of German for seduction....up above, Alex says, "It's hard to imagine wooing a woman by singing in German...."

I had one German teacher at the Defense Language Institute who had been an opera singer in Germany. She had the most beautiful way of speaking German. Every time she opened her mouth, I'd swoon.

Most of our other teachers were former Wehrmacht officers, who said the Russians were the "Feind" and the Americans the "Gegner" in World War II. Most were good teachers, but they never made me swoon.
