Normally I never "just" speak German with dinner guests, it is usually a combination of German and English and certainly our family never "only" speaks German together, but last night we invited over a guest that doesn't speak any English. I had to be pushed out of my comfort zone and dive in head first.
The rules for my kids were that they had to speak German, they couldn't correct my German and they couldn't laugh at my pronunciation. It was a wonderful night around the dinner table...full of smiles :)
