Learn German from Girls4Teaching on Youtube

With my plans to go to Germany this summer, I have started trying to pick up some basic German…I’ve attempted learning some Screen shot 2013-01-18 at 4.09.28 PMItalian, French and Korean before, all which never went very far…I found pronunciations in Italian easier than French. Grammar and sentence structure easier in Korean. French, neither. Now I find the grammar hardest in German. And such loooooong words! ‘Ninety-seven’ is siebenundneunzig. The word for ‘speed limit’ is Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzung. Like I can pronounce or remember how to ever spell that! lol

Anyways, if you’re interested in learning some basic German, check out girls4teaching on Youtube

It’s really hard to find a good online learning method, but these videos are really great. The process is well thought out, visually interesting, as well as helpful in being able to read what the teacher says. There are some typos and errors in some videos which viewers have commented, but it’s not a big deal.

With learning any new language, it’s always a good idea to ‘hear’ the language’. The tone, intonation and pronunciation makes it key in being able to communicate better with natives. At the time of this blog post, there are #28 lessons by girls4teaching on German, so plenty of material to learn.

Hopefully, I can also blog about my trip to Germany in my Travel category. But for now, I must learn!!

Viel glück! (good luck!)
