- call a theater and reserve tickets in German (thanks for helping me prove myself not 30 seconds ago, Hebbel am Ufer)
- understand the basic content of a German movie/play without subtitles...even if it is super weird...though probably excluding highfalutin language
- cook from a German recipe without much consultation of a Wörterbuch
- have full conversations in German
weirdly, though, i often have trouble following the news...
