comment How should I arrange these modal verbs?
"Besuch" is not usually used with an indefinite article in German. You'd just drop the article: "...dass ich Besuch gehabt habe."

But I also enjoy Autofahren, Spaghettiessen, Filmgucken, Musikhören and Kompositaerfinden. :P OK, OK I see your point, and so does Duden (duden.de/sprachwissen/rechtschreibregeln/…).

comment What preposition is used with “aufwachen”?
"Anrufen" means "to call on the phone" (or, in a religious context, "to call out to a god"). You picked the wrong translation.

comment How to translate “nichts auf die Reihe kriegen/bekommen”
True, @Ingo. My main point was the second half of the sentence (about the translation of colloquialisms), and the question title is phrased as "How to translate" and not "What does ... mean?". :)

comment The plural of “Alter”?
@Bengt stated that he didn't know 'how to differentiate between the "Alter" of some alone and a group of people'. I believe my answer helps a little there. :)
