German has even recently borrowed the word 'clever' from English with the same vaguely derogatory sentiment...

Ach, 'Gifted & Talented'. Two words I never want to hear again, after spending five years here. ~shudder~

Sounds vaguely familiar.

Ja, und du bist echt clever, doch?

Oh, it's been far too long since I spoke any German. Or heard any, for that matter. Can't believe I actually find myself missing a language I once sprained my ankle trying to get out of speaking...

I found it impossible to speak but easier than Spanish or Italian to understand. I'm strange.
