I Am Now Fluent In The German Lnaguage

It took me over one year to completely learn the German language to the point to, the German language is now my second language. I can speak German, although, for me, to translate a phrase into the German language takes me several minutes, only on my own abilities. I researched the definition of second languages and fluency in another language, to be fluent in another means one can speak a language to communicate, during my research, I didn’t noticed a specific limited time which would be required to be classified as „fluent“ in a foreign language, for instance, the German language is complex with time tenses within one phrase plus multiple genders within the same phrase, which does take me several minutes to form a phrase. My mom would be very happy that I have learned her birth language.
