My stepdaughter has lived in Germany for several years. I haven't noticed changes in her actual accent, but have noticed German affecting her choice of vocabulary every so often. For instance, the last time she visited we had just moved to a new place, so she asked what the "house number" was. I thought she was asking about the land line number, but she meant what we call the street address--or Hausnummer in German.
