My spoken German is "Austrian accented", as I learned it speaking at home with my Austrian father, and during a year attending the Realgymnasium Albert Einstein, in Meran, Italy and while studying at the University of Vienna, Austria (though my father did grow up in Florence, Italy, so maybe my German is "Tuscan" accented:).

My spoken Polish is "Cracovian": I've spent more than five years living and working in this remarkable, magical city.
