Team German

Just finished your tree which makes it number eleven for me. Quite similar to Afrikaans, which is my second home language, so I managed to find the owl in a couple of weeks.

I must congratulate you guys on the excellent hints - with typical German efficiency, they were correct every time! I aim to struggle on to level 25 as German really appeals to me!

Your course was also entertaining and most amusing. I now mention but two examples, neither of which I shall be tempted to use.

  1. We are measuring how round you are;

  2. I am examining you fast (Vorsprung durch Technik) perhaps?

Congratulations! I'm one skill behind you. Team German did a fantastic job with this course. I was a little apprehensive about German (it's difficult, etc.), but I found it to be easier than French. Now to keep my German and Netherland trees gold and work on the reverse trees!

Reverse trees don't take too long Susie. Albeit that they certainly provide an alternative outlook. The toughest test is not to use our home language. I did Portuguese from Spanish and Spanish from Portuguese. But they gave me all the easy questions , fortunately.

    I recently finished the Spanish tree and want to do the German tree, but I will have to wait until I am a little more comfortable with Spanish before I move on. But I was very glad that some of the sentences in the course were amusing. The most amusing sentence from the Spanish course that comes to mine is "She cut the cheese." There was another funny one, but I don't currently recall what it was.

    The Dutch tree is by far the most interesting and amusing by a long way! Similar to German so perhaps give it a go! They have the most amazing questions! The last two lessons are about their food and customs! Team Dutch is my best! I find it helps to make a note of those intriguing questions as we chance upon them.

    Hi my name is Christy and me and some of my friends are starting to learn German in school. There is an amazing opportunity that our school gives to students that allows to go to Germany as foreign exchange students however it is quite expensive and not really in our budget. We would be incredibly grateful if anyone would please donate any amount to this fundraiser. Thank you so much! :) http://www.gofundme.com/hx3nx788
