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.

comment Can native German speakers identify each other's dialect even if they are speaking “Hochdeutsch”?
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.

comment How to include an English word in a German sentence?
DO NOT write "Cloud Anbieter". German compounds are written either in one word or with a hyphen, but NEVER EVER with a Deppenleerzeichen. That would be a spelling mistake.

Well... I'm from southern Hesse. When I once said to someone from the Ruhrpott that afaik north Germans are unable to tell apart Hessians, Swabians and Bavarians, she asked me: "Why, are you Swabian?" QED.

comment Difference between “zurzeit” and “bis jetzt”
"Bis jetzt" does not necessarily mean that the process has ended. "Bis jetzt ist das Wetter noch gut, aber der Wetterbericht sagt für heute abend Regen voraus". It means that a possible status change is expected.

comment Welche Bedeutung haben die Farben in dieser Karte?
Die meisten werden ohne Artikel gebraucht. Man sagt üblicherweise nicht "das Deutschland" oder "das Frankreich" (wobei es da Ausnahmen gibt, z.b. "das Frankreich des 18. Jahrhunderts"), sondern "Deutschland" und "Frankreich".
