I stopped wearing watches at age of 12 I think. the only downside is when you are on the plane, your phone must be switched off...

And also on the beach. Or during a public exam.

On the beach? Didn't know that...
About exams, I had colleagues that used the phone to get info, or use a headset to have their solution being dictated.

Obviously it isn't forbidden on the beach! But you can't have it if you are swimming, while you can wear a waterproof watch.
Cheating at exams is common, but a bit risky. One thing is risking to get a vital information that will let you to pass, another thing just to see the time

Not during exams, but during all my physics tests in the 2nd and 3rd class of high school a group including me always discussed about the answers during the test. The teacher didn't hear anything

I was in the 'back group' for most classes, except mathematics. sitting in the back is way more fun, especially for classes where one doesn't need to keep up to date

Sometimes I like sitting in the back of the class. the classes I had problems with last year I decided to sit somewhere in front there. (except my German class). At my best subjects (geography & English) I'm in the back of the class room. And I'm still a 9 average on those subkects . I all thought it through

You do realize those ads are based on what you search?

But I'm not having trouble with the smileys. Have you thought about using Adblock Plus?

The knowledge of German among the Dutch is worsening in recent years because they think they can use English everywhere. German is important because Germany is by far the biggest trade partner of the Netherlands.

From the beginning. Some part of the grammar is new to the Dutch, because we don't have 'naamvallen' (anymore), but the Germans do. This is probably the most difficult part about German. Not even all Germans use this properly!

But words do look alike, which comes in very handy. In tests, when you don't know a word: take the Dutch word and make it sound German, and fill it in on the test. In about 50% the answer will be correct

I stopped wearing watches more or less at the same age you did. I realized my left wrist, where I used to wear it, was considerably smaller than the right one, because I use to wear a watch 24/7.

interestingly 'naamvallen' make german language more familiar to a slovene speaker

I'd prefer German without it though. They're a PITA.

About Slovenian.
I came for the first time in contact with it, and for it sounds very close to Serbo/Croatian, even words that are the same like hvala, lepa/o, zvolite, etc.
One thing I noticed though, it sounded more melodically than what I heard from Serbian speakers, maybe the influence of Italian?

maybe you heard people from Primorska (littoral)? they (we) are influenced by italian. I have no idea how slovenian sounds like, I would say less melodic than croatian/serbian
