LEVELS AND SKILLS
Hello everyone So i am 59% fluent in German with 55 skills learned and LEVEL 12 according to duolingo. my question is in real life or at least level wise where do i stand exactly : A1, A2, B1?
Das kann man nicht wissen. Es hängt von vielen verschiedenen Dingen ab. Um dir eine Idee zu geben, kannst du Kinderbücher oder Bücher für Anfänger verstehen? Zum Beispiel:
Wenn du dieses Buch leicht lesen kannst, denke ich, dass du zumindest in der Lesekompetenz A2 bist. Das erste Buch für Anfänger in Deutsch, das ich las, war "Kaffee in Berlin" und ich mochte es sehr.
wow i did not understand everything you wrote so this is discouraging i am only a level 12 unlike yourself but thanks for the tips and thank you for replying i hope i get to that high level soon
It takes time, you just need a bit of patience.
I started all these languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, Catalan, German, Esperanto, Norwegian, Romanian ) from scratch about two years ago (I added some more later), and German was probably the hardest for me.
Only very recently I started to read adult books in German and it is not easy for me yet (I read much slower in German, for example, than in the other languages, and there are still many things in adult books that I don't understand right away).
But your brain will get used to it at the end (if you practice daily for long enough).
