comment Literal meaning of: es ist noch kein Meister vom Himmel gefallen
@Emanuel I guess you're right. I've always found analysis of expletives confusing. Would you agree to call it similar?

comment Präposition für fliegen
Almost: You'd also say "Ich fliege ins Vereinigte Königreich", which is neuter. You use "nach" for countries that are used without an article in German.

comment How to use the verb “pflegen” with the meaning of - being used to do something?
This meaning of "pflegen" isn't used much anymore. If you want to use it anyway, look at Ingmar's answer, otherwise just say "Meine Oma macht jeden Tag ein Mittagsschläfchen."

comment Can native German speakers identify each other's dialect even if they are speaking “Hochdeutsch”?
Yes, @Zane, if they know the differences in the first place. I'm sure speakers from Emden, Hamburg and Greifswald are easily told apart by north Germans, but I for one wouldn't be able to, simply because I don't know what to listen for.

Also, if your parents or grandparents have at some point moved to a different region with a different dialect, they might choose to speak Hochdeutsch at home, so this is what their kids learn. And pass on to their kids in return. This is how I grew up speaking Hochdeutsch. Come to think of it, many kids im my school were raised speking Hochdeutsch although their parents speak the local dialect.
