Aber es ist sehr schwer! ich bin deutsch und mir tun Menschen die Deutsch lernen irgendwie manchmal leid! ;)
La germana ne estas malbela ligvo, sed la orka lingvo de Meztero estas tre malbela lingvo.
Just to give an example of the opposite without offending any humans.
(la orka lingvo de Meztero = the orcish language of Middle-Earth)

Aside from Esperanto and Italian, German is one of my favourite languages.
Just German. If you are using "German" as a noun you don't use an article, because English doesn't use articles with proper names. (If you are using it as an adjective, then it depends on what is being modified. Thus: "The German boy sang a song in German to German Heinrich." "The German boy"; German is an adjective, boy is a noun, boy gets a "the".
"a song"; song is a noun, gets indefinite article "a"
"in German"; German is a proper name and doesn't get an article.
"German Heinrich," German is an adjective, Heinrich is a proper name, so it doesn't get an article.
