comment How should I say something like “I'm” instead of “I am” in German?
Not restricted to Austria/Bavaria: same in Switzerland, and Swabia, so southern German dialects is fine :)

comment Is the following sentence, in terms of its adjectival declension, right?
Community voted to put this question on hold. Unfortunately this was done whithout saying why and what to improve. My impression is that it might be from its poor title. To get it reopened please edit the title, and possibly the question to elaborate better what your issue/question is. Also see meta.german.stackexchange.com/questions/492/…

comment What movies are good for learners who want to improve their grammar and vocabulary?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because possible anwers will be way to broad, and can not be maintained in a sensible way. Big list questions are generally not a good fit for any Stack Exchange site.

comment “Ich wurde geboren” vs “Ich bin geboren”?
I'd say a more common colloquial variant would not be the passive past but just "Ich bin/komme/stamme aus Berlin".

comment How to end a complaint letter in German
On this matter there is a nice article on Knigge.de (not to be taken too seriously). There also is a summary on Wikipedia where "Hochachtung" would still be appropriate... not that I want to correct you, but it may be preceived different to the intention you had in your letters of complaint ;)

comment How to end a complaint letter in German
Today Hochachtungsvoll is no longer in use. It may only occasionally still be seen in letters from old to very old people (80+).
