    Hello,

    Is anyone here bilingual, English/German, but with native, or near-native, levels of German?

    I have a search task for someone, and I can offer a small payment for your time. It involves working with archival websites. I need to find where some papers might be - not actually their contents etc, but just the likely archive they might be in, in Germany.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Syrok and Gunzberg - I shall burden Brainboy with this first, as I know he's in/recently been in academia, and I've shot him lots in Halo, so I feel more comfortable asking him.

    But if he fails me, as he might cos he's Brainboy, I shall return!

    hohoho

    I'm a native German, but I have no fucking idea about archival websites. I don't even know what zat is, actually.

    I've not learned English as a foreign language, but it strikes me as a difficult language even without cases.

    You don't have to conjugate for genders/the relevant speaker, but there's other horribly tricksy elements to it.

    Like heteronyms! Words that are spelt the same but are pronounced differently, they've got to be difficult to learn.

    English has some quite tricky parts, but what's good about it, and why it's a good "choice" for world language, is that the basics are pretty simple, and it's easier than most other languages to reach a level that allows you to converse on a basic level.

    Learning the gender of each and every noun in "other" Germanic or Romance languages for example is horrible. Then there's the complicated flexion, etc., English is a lot easier in those regards.
