I originally started learning German after seeing an German film on SBS. A character in the film yelled "jetzt" during an intense scene and that's when I realised I needed to study this language.
I would very much like to travel to Germany again and not use English. When I was there previously I found myself reverting to English quite frequently because I simply couldn't understand when people spoke, and I also didn't anticipate how many people actually knew English. This was out of comfort more that anything which I will regret.
