Re: "Your German is not good enough..."

I left Switzerland at the age of 18
Came back 20 years later, i speak perfect swiss and high german
When i get an official letter its like reading another language. I feel like I need a german degree or something
funny i heard on the radio a couple of weeks ago how difficult it is to read some of these letters, even for the german speakers, finally i did not feel alone again.
At my work we have helpers that will actually go to a persons home just to help them with the paperwork.
So yes what does it mean ...your german is not good enough...
my criteria..can you communicate and make yourself understood in day to day living situations.
Are you happy with your german
if yes...voila..your german is good enough..
