First Steps to Learn German

If you are interested in learning the basics of the German language, these tips can help your learning process.

  §  There are many German learning courses available, and you could enroll in any one of these. These are a great way to even learn some advanced concepts of the language. But before this, you should register yourself in a German for Beginners course first. Online institutes also offer German learning courses, which are more convenient and available at a lower price. 

  §  If you do not have the time to enroll yourself in a course, try purchasing some German audio lessons. These can also help you a great deal in learning the language.

  §  Allocate at least 1 to 1.5 hours per day in order to provide an overall knowledge of the German language characteristics.

  §  German is similar to English in the sense that it also has a lot of Latin and Greek words. Hence, many words are quite similar. For instance, the German word for house is das Haus and the German word for garden is der Garten. Learning these words first will make the process easier but keep in mind that German is a very strict language in how words are pronounced and spelled. 

  §  Unlike English, the German language has genders. Try to learn German nouns and their genders at the same time.

  §  Avoid translation from English to German as much as you can. You are prone to make grammatical errors this way. Once you get a hold of the basics, you should try to think in German before you speak the language. What people normally do is that they think in English and translate it into German before speaking. Try to get out of this habit as soon as you can because you will never be able to learn any language properly if you keep doing this.

  §  Get hold of a good German dictionary that states meanings in the English language. The dictionary should comprise of at least 50,000 words. You can use it to study the meanings, but remember that a same word can have multiple meanings and can be used in many different ways.

  §   Practice, practice, practice…

Yes, German is like a kids store like Baby n Mama, if you practise, you will learn it soon!
