Re: Liability insurance claim - not accepted

I made no such assumption, hence me writing in German.

You sort of implied it...........but not without causing me much stress, not least because I had to write letters in German,

I didn't read it that way at all. I stress about writing letters in German, particularly those kind, although I'm fluent, but not a native speaker. When you are still learning the language, as I now am with French, such challenges seem very difficult. The key is to use that stress and do it anyway. Unfortunately that seems to be part of the process of learning; it's only by struggling through such problems that you get better at the language.

I've been here in Suisse for a year now and I have the French of a two year old with Tourettes . But I keep practicing with every shop assistant, colleague, and neighbor I can. (Eventually, I might even be able to pronounce it properly .)

Re: Liability insurance claim - not accepted

The essential thing above anything else is to make the effort, sure it may be gramatically incorrect, but people accept that and appreciate the effort you make.

This alone will up your standing in their eyes
