comment What is the best format to use when writing out dates?
The confusion with dd.mm.yyyy does exist, but in my experience only when foreigners are involved. I hardly ever see any other date format used in everyday life.

comment Can the position of “auch” change the meaning of the sentence?
I think the same as Emanuel. Those two are quite interchangeable. And while the third is indeed ok, it sounds kind of strange and most people I know would almost always use the first one. "Warum muss ich ins Bett gehen und die Anderen nicht? Ich bin auch groß."

comment Is it an error when I do not use ß when it is necessary?
convention to replace "ss" by "ß"?? Doing this in words like "hass" or "krass" can't be right.

comment What is the way to describe final exams?
but not only prefer "lernen", I think "studieren" doesn't fit well here. One would understand it, but no German would say that.

comment “Darum -— ich mir ein Auto.”
"Darum dingen ich mir ein Auto."?? Does sound very wrong to me as a native and makes no sense. "Ich verdinge mich als Lehrer" means "i work as a teacher", so I dont think this has anything to do with each other.
