Default German/Austrian - US dual citizenship

Hi, we are a family with German/Austrian nationality, living in the US since 10 years (green card since ~ 8 years)

Now we are planning to apply for the US citizenship, but do not want to give up our original nationality.

We know that this is possible by applying for a "Genehmigung zur Erteilung der deutschen Staatsangehoerigkeit) and a similar process for Austria.

Who has effectively gone through this process?
We would like to discuss and get some information about difficulties and potential issues with the arguments and reasons needed to get approval.

Thanks for any feedback

The language is not the issue .. I can do it in either - English or German,
What I am looking for is people who have done this and can share their experience with the German consulate which approves the dual citizenship or not. In addition, are there any significant down sites of having both citizenships?
I may not have thought of all . like taxation etc.

I don't think it is just the German consulate that approves the dual citizenship. Part of the American citizenship process is, I think, that you must officially renounce your original citizenship.

And oddball, he can even take the citizenship exam in German. English is not a requirement.

I have since been told that English is a requirement unless you are over 60. My apologies.
