one year done.

Well, it has just been over a year since I started the German course.

I have learned loads, but also in awe of what there is still to learn.

I have been listening to some of the Deutsche Welle learn German podcasts and I take great delight in listening and understanding a great deal of what is said, not just translating in my head but actually listening and forming pictures in my imagination.

This is quite the challenge, but I always promised myself i would learn a language.

I am also learning a great deal about English grammar too (I am one of the lost generation who were not taught much grammar at school, my daughter knows all about it at age 7..)

Here is to the next year.

    Hallo Lob, Dir gebührt tatsächlich sehr viel Lob für Deinen Fleiß! Ich wünsche Dir noch viele schöne Erfolgserlebnisse mit der deutschen Sprache, meiner Muttersprache. Bei uns im deutschsprachigen Raum lernen die Kinder in der Schule frühzeitig Englisch, weil Englisch als globale Weltsprache angesehen wird. Sogar in der deutschen Sprachwissenschaft wird Englisch geschrieben, damit es weltweit verstanden wird! Umso schöner ist es, wenn ich hier lese, wie sehr sich Englischsprachige bemühen, Deutsch zu lernen, der Sprache vieler deutscher Dichter, die weltweit bekannt sind bis nach Japan. Herzliche Grüße aus der Schweiz! Dinoma77

    Glad to hear it! Your next step is to increase your level of immersion. Change your phone's language setting to German, discover German music/film, etc. This will help with understanding real-life usage of words you already know and will lead you towards learning hundreds of new words.


    Music: Cro, Danju, Sido, Frida Gold

    Film: Netflix dubbed in German

    Apps: Drops, DeutschLernen (German news), Tinycards, Duolingo Stories (web only)
