Take your time
Make sure you take some weekly time for your German. When is a good time for you to sit down with a cup of coffee or tea and concentrate on learning something new? Is it a Monday morning or rather a Wednesday evening, maybe a Saturday afternoon? Find your personal time slot and book it in your calendar.
Stick to 20 verbs
Start with your first phrases and – here is the trick – learn the 20 most-used verbs with their conjugation. Starting from there, you can build a good set of first sentences to use in various combinations again and again.
Understand the logic behind
To understand how the language works, make sure you find clear explanations and practice with interactive exercises in an online course.
Write every day!
Make sure you practice your sentences with your first 20 verbs over and over again by writing sentences every day. This might seem repetitive in the beginning – it helps you remember and feel safer at using your new language. Share your sentences in our community and connect with other learners!
Happy learning! 🙂
Learning German is not easy, in fact, I have to admit, it can be quite challenging. Each and every one of us needs something else, a different combination of learning techniques, input, guidance and support in learning a new language. This is why it is important that you take some alone time with your German.
It’s your lucky day: you are exactly at the right place! Just go to CLEAR EXPLANATIONS to find videos, articles and sample sentences on the German grammar in English.
We have some exercises for you to practice and improve your German skills, just go to INTERACTIVE EXERCISES and start right now! Happy practicing 🙂
I have heard this a lot and it is true that also in Germany and Austria we watch a lot of English and American TV series. Still, there are quite a lot of German series, too. Find a collection here and feel free to add further recommendations in the comments 🙂
You would like to take your German skills to the next level and start watching movies in German? High Five to you 🙂 If you are looking for recommendations, here are some choices you could start with.
Don’t forget to turn on the subtitles! For improving your German language skills, you should watch movies and series with subtitles in German, too. This way your brain does not focus on translating but you can read along to the words you hear, this helps you to memorize them. Where to find movies and series with subtitles? Find out more here.
Viel Spaß! 🙂
