comment What's with the placement of “aber” here?
"Anna spielt gern Klavier, nicht so jedoch gut wie die Mutter." That's not correct German in my mind. You could say "Anna spielt gern Klavier, jedoch nicht so gut wie die Mutter."

comment How to pronounce the German R?
Good luck! :-) I'm a German living in Canada and I had several session with a speech therapist to learn how to pronounce the English 'R'. I have now an idea how my tongue is supposed to move, but people make still fun of me (especially my wife :)).

comment Using “nach” or “zu” for landmarks and similar
Disneyland is not a country. So everything other than "Ich fahre ins Disneyland, ins Fantasialand etc" sounds aweful.

comment Bach und Ache, sind sie verwandt?
Hmm, muß ich mich wohl doch nochmal bemühen :-). Ich hatte mal ein Buch von einem der Berlitz-Enkel mit Sprachvergleichen bezüglich Sprichwörtern. Vielleicht war es das ja ...

comment Using a possessive as predicative
"Der Wagen ist mir." would be perfect dialect in Baden or Bavaria. I do not consider it proper German though.
