Problems with learning German

I have put my computer into German, which is brilliant for immersion. And i get a little buzz everytime i understand something new! Problem: spellchecker is now also in German, just realising how much i rely on spellchecker and now need to learn how to spell in English... my native language..

Finally started to get the hang of capital letters in German!! Problem: Now keep accidently capitalising Nouns in English.

Oh well at least my German is improving even if my English could do with some work.

Hallo!

Ich habe auch meinen Computer auf Deutsch manchmal eingesetzt... aber ich habe Deutsch für viele Jahre lang gelernt, also empfehle ich dich herzlich, dass du das nicht machst, wenn du seit nicht lange her Deutsch lernen angefangen hast, denn du kannst was einfach screw up. :D Besonders wenn du was wichtiges machst, was ist bei mir öfters der Fall.

Wenn du meine Nachricht hier einfach verstehst, dann ist dein Deutsch natürlich gut, aber ... denk schonmal! Denn was du mit deinen Freunden sagen und hören, ist total anders als was der Computer dir sagen wird. Ja, es kann dir in der Tat helfen, du kannst total einige Worte und ein paar grammatische Sachen richtig lernen, aber zu welchem Preis? Mehrere neuinstallationen oder Computer? lol ;)

Im Grunde... achtung. :) Viel Glück!

PS

Du könntest auch dein Handy oder Tablet auf Deutsch einsetzen! Das machte ich, und es hilft mir sehr.

It's probably possible to change the dictionary your spell check uses, even if you are typing in a different language than your current system settings. Admittedly, learning to spell without relying on the spell check can't hurt ...

I know your pain. In my case Polish is my first language and it have quite similar spelling to German. But it's still sometimes hard to remember that 'k' is 'k', not 'c' like in English.
