I want to learn German! (29)

1 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2008-03-06 18:05 ID:EkPlGS01

I will spend every day of my life studying this language and practising it, and will probably move to Germany for a few years because I love it so much.

Unfortunately I have no idea where to start! I've been reading the German wikibook (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/German) -- are there any better or more comprehensive books I could get on the subject? Cost is no problem, German kicks ass.

you can go to your local bookstore and look up pimsleur

Pimsleur sucks. He'd be better off with a simple text book accompanied with CDs.

For additional learning, try podcasts, they can be pretty useful, as they let you learn in little 15-20 minutes bites while you're on the train or bus.

You can not learn language by books alone.
One of the best ways that has worked for me to better my english was watching the US tv.
So, I say you get a good deutsch vocabulary book, and see if you can buy or watch online german tv and music. Then try and use words and phrases in everyday life. It's the way you learn as a baby.

German is very hard to lean language. I am german and learning japanese...

my japanese friend, who´s learning german was a year in germany and learnd that fast...i can´t beleive it.

Wie auch immer... das mit den Potcasts ist eine gute Sache. Sprache lernt man sehr gut über das Zuhören. oder auch deutsche Filme, die man dann mit englischen Untertitel schaut.

Hi, I'm german... I could teach you some basics if you're still interested.

It depends on where you're from. I'm a native (Scottish) English speaker, and I've always found German quite easy. The pronounciation is easy for me, and the grammar simply takes time to understand, like any language. Compared to Latin, German grammar is a doddle!

being from the US and having a fair understanding of spanish helped me learn the little german that i do know. i couldn't agree more that listening to audio and watching movies (subtitles or not) helps greatly in learning basically any language. especially japanese since it has such a different structure than western langages.

This is actually a very accurate portrayal.

20 Name: Anonymous Linguist : 2011-08-07 16:40 ID:6o/eGVF6

the best way is to learn the basics and than watch german movies or something like that. but the grammar isn´t easy but possible^^
and u are right: german does kick as (of course im german)

I doubt the OP is still here, but if anybody is interested, I've been using the "Teach Yourself German" from 1963 by John Adams. It's a bit outdated, but you'll get an extremely thorough introduction to the language. It consists of grammar lessons, learning vocabulary, and then doing translation exercises from English to German and vice versa. I've only done about 15 exercises and I can understand the simple posts in this thread.
