Es ist meine Wünsche, dass mein Deutsch sich verbessern. Ich glaube die Übung die besste Lehrerin ist, oder wie jemand, dass Übüng den Meister macht, spricht.
It is my wish that my German improves. I believe that practice is the best teacher, or how someone said that practice makes perfect.

And having practiced makes present perfect. [:P]

Je traduirais ça en français, mais autant que je sache, ce n'est pas possible.
I'd translate that into French, but as far as I know, it isn't possible.

En français on dit : « C'est en forgeant qu'on devient forgeron ».
In French, you say, "It is by smithing that one becomes a blacksmith."

Enfin, comment tu vas pratiquer l'allemand ?
Anyway, how are you going to practice German?

雖然『Übung』是陰性的名詞,可是用『Lehrerin』不正確。這個詞只是為女人用的。
Although "Übung" is a feminine noun, using "Lehrerin" is not correct. This word is only used for females.

關於你最後寫的句子,我不知道用標準德語怎麼說。 [:D] 我糾正的句子比你的嘗試自然一點。
Regarding the sentence you've written last, I don't know how to say it in Standard German. The sentence I corrected is a little more natural than your attempt.

Indem ich versuche, scheitre, und steige auf. Nur Grammatiklehren wird nicht helfen, ich glaube.
By trying, failing, and ascending. Just learning grammar wouldn't help me, I believe.

Vielen Dank. Entschuldigung für den Schreken, dass mein Schreiben muss rufen im deutschen Herz auf. Die Syntax ist noch eine komplizierte Thema für mich.
Thank you very much. I apologize for the horror that my writing must evoke in the German heart. The syntax is still a complicated subject for me.

我又看了我的修正。我意識到你的語序也好,可是你得用『dass』。『dass (die) Übung der beste Lehrer ist』和我的修正都可以。我同意德語的語序非常難。
I read my correction again. I realised that you word order is also good, but you have to use "dass". "dass (die) Übung der beste Lehrer ist" and my correction are both correct. I agree that German word order is very difficult.

『ausschließlich』對我來說更自然,但是我不知道為什麼。 [:D] 我也改變『Herz』。標準德語用『Herzen』,可是在口語裡,你用的這個詞也可以。
"ausschließlich" sounds more natural to me, but I don't know why. I also changed "Herz". Standard German uses "Herzen", but in the colloquial language, the word you used is also correct.

Put the dormouse into your suitcase! But I doubt the dormouse still breathes after the plane has landed.

Sans aucun doute. On me dit que c'est un des lieux qui expérimentent le « vrai froid ».
Without a doubt. I've been told it's one of the places where they have "real cold".

Vivant en Californie, je ne suis pas sûr de ce que c'est.
Living in California, I'm not sure what that is.

Puisqu'on a ravivé ce sujet, je voudrais faire remarquer que la capitale silvaise est située à cinq heures de route de Monaco.
Since the subject has come up again, I'd like to point out that the Silvish capital is a five-hour drive from Monaco.

Perso, j'utilise le français parce que c'est la seule langue autre que l'anglais que je parle.
Personally, I use French because it's the only not-English language I speak.

Il n'y a qu'une solution — la pratique. Et je vois que tu fais ça.
There's only one way to fix that — practice. And I see you're doing that.
