    Now you are fit as a fiddle in the German language
    Comment
    Kann man nach einem erfolgreichen Deutschkurs sagen:

    Now you are fit as a fiddle in German

    oder bezieht sich diese Redewendung nur auf die Gesundheit? Gibt es eine Alternative (etwas lockerere) Ausdrucksweise für diesen Satz?

    Vielen Dank schonmal.

    In my experience, fit as a fiddle refers only to health.

    One possible alternative:

    Now your German is in good shape.

    Now your German is ready to go.

    Fit as a fiddle does apply only to health.

    It's hard to be fit as a fiddle when you're shaped like a cello. :-)
