Your English is fine. It is better than some people I deal with in day to day life here in the US.

My last name is Swango. In typical American fashion, we changed the spelling and pronunciation somewhere along the way. But my last name is German. It was originally spelled "Schwangau" as in Southern Bavaria.
Julie -- I have no idea it's lineage.
I speak English. I had learned some German in school, but forgot most of it.
I always feel bad that I never really learned another language. I guess Spanish would be the best usable language in my area. My spouse speaks fluent Spanish.
All the countries in Europe are so close to each other, I could see the need to handle several languages, if I lived there. The US is so large, and English is predominately spoken. It is easy to go through life here and not have a need to learn another language.
So don't hold it against me. LOL!
I hope the upgrade will address your concerns. If not, we should try to figure out exactly what you need RG to do or not to do.
