Quality of life is declining, ja?

Ojai

Rick Bisaccia

I read your interesting commentary “Sprechen Sie Deutsch?” (Dec. 13) recently.

Indeed, there is a word in the English language for one who loves all things German. That would be a Germanophile. There are also Francophiles, Chinophiles, etc., etc.

Amazing that my high school in Ojai used to have a full four years of French and German when I went; now it’s only Spanish. Another example of how the quality of life gets worse.

Thanks for defending the teaching of German. Herzliche grussen,
