Sprache wurde für mich erst nach einem längeren Auslandsaufenthalt interessant. Damals habe ich gelernt, dass man tatsächlich in einer anderen Sprache denken und träumen kann. Man kann dadurch sogar einen Teil seiner Muttersprache (Schwäbisch) verlernen.

Seither interessiere ich mich dafür, wie verschieden Sprachen und Dialekte sind und wie gleich sie doch wieder sind, welche Nuancen eine Aussage klar machen oder verwässern, wie Mehrdeutigkeiten Spaß machen können.

Mit Sprache kann man jonglieren, balancieren und ohne Netz vom Hochseil stürzen.

comment Are these sentence in the passive voice correct?
@KorganRivera: it is fine to make guesses, and ask as to whether they are right, but in your question we can not see what it was you guessed. Why not edit your question to elaborate your thoughts about usage of an adjective in passive voice?

comment Are these sentence in the passive voice correct?
There are only two possible answers to your question: "yes" or "no" - in this case it would be yes, they are. Other than that I can not see how this question as it stands now will allow answers valuable to other people too after they came here seeking for help on passive voice. To get it reopened please add an actual question or explain where your issue with passive voice is.

comment How to say “now a days…” / “nowadays” in German?
@ThorstenDittmar: if you need to discuss this issue please do so in the apporpriate meta thread (see above). Here it is not the right place for doing so. Please also note, that not a single answer including the accepted answer says anything on this spelling mistake. This makes me believe it is not really that important.

To be able to get your question reopened please edit your question. We need at least some hint where your issue is to be able to write an answer. At present this is hard to tell.
