Question about English speakers living in Germany

As an example, in English if you see a Russian speaker speaking English, they will usually not use the words 'A' and 'The' because Russian doesn't have these words.

My question is, do English speakers make these sort of errors in German, forgetting genders, using the wrong word for 'The' or 'A' and putting the wrong adjective endings.

Is it fairly normal to see English speakers talk like this in Germany as we see with people from other countries doing things like this in English?

Yes, I do. I used to make (and sometimes, still, in the present).

Pretty sure it is. You can never remember all grammatical rules (For example, genders).
