I have bought this one: Frequency dictionary of German. Core vocabulary for learners. By Jones and Tschirner. ISBN 0-415-31633-2

Words are ordered by frequency, of course. Not alphabetically.

In this dictionary 4037 words (out of almost 4 millions existing in the Gernan language) are presented with English translation and a little sentence. I found that it helps me focussing. Once you have learned the 100 most used of verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions... well, you can't still say to know German, but at least you can make sense out of a lot of speeches.

Du hast Jordan Peterson beobachtet; eh?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/esquirecats

Don't forget dict.leo.org it's a university run German language dictionary. While it is primarily aimed at English and German speakers, it also maintains excellent dictionaries between German and many other languages such as French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin and so on.

I've found it to be the go-to source for unusual or modern words.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pierre980

Thanks a lot for your post! I had known only the YouTube site "Get Germanized" from what you wrote (which I can recommend once more, besides, I simply love that man's wit ^^), but I'll check other websites as soon as possible. Have another lingot! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/linamkraw

thanks a lot really!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/deidrerc

Haha, I was just about to suggest the same thing. I love his channel!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jokaim

Es gibt auch Deutsche Welle! (http://www.dw.de/learn-german/german-courses/s-2547) Für Studenten von A1 bis zu C1!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jokaim

Ihr könnt auch Extra probieren! Es ist eine schlechte, langsam gesprochen, Kopie der amerikanischen Serie "Friends" um Deutsch zu lernen. Ich finde es toll für Anfänger. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhP3OT2hxAE


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mrkgnao

Entschuldigung: sollt man nicht "langsam gesprochene Kopie" sagen?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Grissly7

Ja. Aber das sind die Feinheiten der höheren Level und schmälert nicht den Tip.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Samy1979

The same is there is French...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Malcolmeng

M8 you came to the wrong neighborhood.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jokaim

I don't understand. Are you looking for the same kind of thing to learn French? Then this is probably not the right place...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/trashboat9

I think he meant that there's the same video series in french, which there is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV6SDDlc60g


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rhythmixed

I just posted about Deustche Welle myself! I hadn't noticed your comment. What a coincidence!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jokaim

Es ist kein Zufall, DW ist eine sehr wichtige Seite, um Deutsch zu lernen! ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/4of92000

When you are on an English forum learning German, could you stick to one of those two languages, please?

And what did you say?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jokaim

You are right but maybe evankkk4816 visited my page and saw that I am learning Chinese at the moment, so I think it is nice of him anyway. ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hsiangchi

Happy learning Chinese!! each word is a picture, may it bring you to a beautiful world.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hsiangchi

In Chinese that means "thumbs up"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/skyemiao

Maybe the user is people in Hong Kong or Taiwan because he typed“繁体字”——the original complex form of a simplified Chinese character.I guess what he means is that the suggestions lina mkraw offered are great.In Chinese we say "赞“


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeroGoi

This is a language learning community, I think that it's perfectly alright to write in Chinese.

I don't know if someone already posted, but Deutsch für Euch is a good youtube channel as wel! https://www.youtube.com/user/DeutschFuerEuch


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/p3tr1ch0r

It's great! Thanks!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Caroline558719

I think she speaks too much English, I reckon she wants to practice her English more than she really wants to teach German. Not a bad YT channel, but there are definitely better ones.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ACastle_10

Definitely agree. Her pronunciation tips are great.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Badreligion

Es gibt auch http://www.deutsch-perfekt.com/ wo man kann Zeitungsartikeln in verschiedene Niveaus lesen, zB mittel ist fuer B1/B2 und schwer fuer C1. Man kann auch ein Abo machen um diese Zeitung zu Hause zu bekommen.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/linamkraw

danke schon ! can i add it to the list ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Badreligion

Sure no problem! Btw my teacher uses this magazine as class material.

    Hi! I'm new on Duolingo. I started to learn German, and after I crossed three lessons there is no option to move to the next one (on food lesson ) Where am I doing wrong?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ACastle_10

    Try reloading the page? Maybe log out and log back in, or try it on a different device if you have one. If you have definitely completed the others you should be fine as far as I know. If it persists, try the support page.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ElmaAliefe

    I have this problem whole week, so I've tried with different browsers and reloading, already I've contacted support via e-mail but still no answer ... In any case, thank you for answer .

    Great post!

    Another few resources that I found helpful are:

    1. Dino lernt Deutsch book series - really great for expanding the vocabulary

    2. Cloze Master (https://www.clozemaster.com/) - puts things in context and makes it much easier to remember certain words and phrases

    3. Harry – gefangen in der Zeit - interesting online (free) story series that makes learning German fun

    4. Nicos Weg - great online video series! And https://learngerman.dw.com/en/overview have some helpful resources!

    Hope this helps someone!

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Chickenator1944

    This was very helpful!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LKJBennett

    Nice resources! I would add that making sure you build a solid grammar foundation from the get-go is very important in learning German.

    Duolingo and many other resources help you build vocabulary, but you can't actually USE it (correctly, anyway) if you don't understand German grammar structures.

    I've been building a website on German grammar topics for beginner-intermediate students! Check it out here: www.germanwithlaura.com
