With my plans to go to Germany this summer, I have started trying to pick up some basic German…I’ve attempted learning some Italian, French and Korean before, all which never went very far…I found pronunciations in Italian easier than French. Grammar and sentence structure easier in Korean. French, neither. Now I find the grammar hardest in German. And such loooooong words! ‘Ninety-seven’ is siebenundneunzig. The word for ‘speed limit’ is Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzung. Like I can pronounce or remember how to ever spell that! lol
Anyways, if you’re interested in learning some basic German, check out girls4teaching on Youtube
It’s really hard to find a good online learning method, but these videos are really great. The process is well thought out, visually interesting, as well as helpful in being able to read what the teacher says. There are some typos and errors in some videos which viewers have commented, but it’s not a big deal.
With learning any new language, it’s always a good idea to ‘hear’ the language’. The tone, intonation and pronunciation makes it key in being able to communicate better with natives. At the time of this blog post, there are #28 lessons by girls4teaching on German, so plenty of material to learn.
Hopefully, I can also blog about my trip to Germany in my Travel category. But for now, I must learn!!
Viel glück! (good luck!)
I would love to read about your trip to Germany. I hear good things about Germany all the time. I think they have the best food. Like sausage and cheese and schnitzel and bread and lots of chocolate. Oh yes, and beer, too.
Thanks so much!!! I’ll try to blog about it, and post as many photos as I can! It’ll be my first time there, so lots of new exciting experiences to come!!
What is the best weather for going to Germany?
Last year, 2 of my friends went to Germany in May, and they both had good weather. Unfortunately for us, we mostly had rain and cold temperatures. But the locals said that this was very unusual.
