Mistranslation problem:
The English, French, Portuguese and Esperanto seem to mean "I walk" or "I go on foot".
But the German and Dutch seem to mean "I run".

ich laufe can also be translated in German as I walk.

I'm not a native speaker and would welcome a native's comments.

In some parts of the German speaking regions the verb "laufen" is used for "zu Fuß gehen" (walk), in others its usage is entirely limited to the meaning of "run".
Personally, reading the sentence "Ich laufe jeden Tag zur Schule", I'd believe that the person is actually running.
So this can be a source of confusion for German speakers as well, but I think the majority of speakers in Germany is used to this double meaning.
