    No Im not german but I speak german everyday because I live in Austria. I think most words in english are not in capitualised letters only at the beginning of the sentence well the word English seems to be exception. Thanks I didnt know this or knew it but forgot it.

    How are things in Austria? Much of a muslim problem there?

    I commend you for trying to speak English, but don't Austrians speak German? Hitler kicked the shit otta Austria.

    I dont have any problem with any religion or race or ethnicity or nationality. Some austrians do though. You need to ask them like LucyHamilton. Austrians do speak german yes. But most of them also speak English as second language.

    Where in Austria do you live?

    Simple rule - all proper nouns are capitalized.

    I didn't ask you if "YOU" had a problem with religion... I ask about muslims in Austria... you OK with them taking over your country?

    Austria has a problem with Muslims, not just their mosques

    The recording is a bit choppy but I think your English is better than borderline understandable. Better than some of the ghetto and redneck stuff I hear downtown.

    a name used for an individual person, place, or organization, spelled with initial capital letters, e.g., Larry, Mexico, and Boston Red Sox.
