What is the best book for beginning to learn German?

November 11, 2008 by · 3 Comments 

What is the best book for beginning to learn German? I would really like to learn German. Rosetta stone is too expensive, and I need a book, because I don’t have any fluent German speakers accessible to me. Please recommend a good book for beginning German that isn’t massively expensive.
Is that in reference to the teach yourself Beginners German or teach yourself German?

I could recommend teach yourself simply and easily, you can read the book review here. Aside from Rosetta Stone german there are other German Language Courses that might suit your budget. Try out our free course for instance (sign up on the right)

Best regards

Does any one know of a cheap and effective way to learn German?

I have checked the Rosetta Stone software and that is over $200. I was wondering if any one knows of any kind of software/books that you can learn German from for under $100.

http://www.fsi-language-courses.com/default.aspx

That's the FSI language courses from the '60s. It's got a good German course and it's free! :)
The downside is that it's somewhat boring and just focuses on grammar drills and such. Also, some of the words are a little dated.

That's a company's site that makes really good books to learn languages. There's a german course in English, and if you speak French there are several courses. You can buy the books + CDs on amazon for pretty cheap and they're great.

What's the best way for me to learn German this summer?

I have 4 months and $5000 to learn as much German as I can. I currently only have 2 semesters of college-level German classes completed, so my German skills are pretty weak. How do I get better quickly?

Go to Germany. There are great schools that give you intensive lessons and also an accommodation.
I´ve learned in Frankfurt, Goethe Institute, very expensive. And i did not learned a lot. But anyhow a certificate from this school is accepted everywhere.
Darmstadt, Studio Mondiale, cheaper, nice, Learned a lot..!! The personal intensive courses are at good price and it is a great way to learn. Darmstadt is a very nice city, full of students. Annete a great teacher.
Dusseldorf, Sprach forum Heinrich Heine, great! I learned everything there. I passed the DSH test to enter any German University (not everyone passes the exam on the first time). The prices are great. Dusseldorf is very nice and you meet a lot of people there…
I recommend that you go to Germany and stay there for more than a month. Live with German people when possible. A family or young people. That is the only way to lear and practice…!! Good luck. Here are the web pages.

Any German speakers want to help me learn German?

November 3, 2008 by · 5 Comments 

I'm a linguistics student in the US, and I've started out trying to learn German. Right now, I'm using 'l'allemand sans peine' and FSI German courses. I'd really like to speak with actual German speakers though, as it's different than learning from a book and audio.

Du koenntest auch in einen deutschen Chatraum gehen und dort mit anderen Deutschen chatten. Das hilft Dir dann auch weiter. Viel Spass beim lernen. Gruss Priscilla

What is the easiest/Fastest way to learn German?

November 1, 2008 by · 2 Comments 

I am going to germany in 3 years with a friend and know only a little German. Should I continue learning the language or wait a couple years and just go the Germany?

I think you should continue learning the language. Three years is a long time – what you could learn in that amount of time would really help with getting around the country and maybe even having conversations… Even after three years of study there will still be alot you can learn and improve on such as your accent. Even though many Germans speak English, most (I've heard) will be appreciative of your attempts to learn their language.
Living there will make the biggest difference – if you make sure to go and involve yourself with locals. My family hosted an exchange student thirteen years ago and when he came to the US he knew very little English (like "yes" and "no"). But he was very social and became involved alot at school and after a year the advancements he made were amazing!
Hope this helps & best of luck!!

Is it easy to learn both German and Spanish?

October 30, 2008 by · 5 Comments 

I just can't decide which one to learn, so how hard is it to learn both? Not at the same time, of course. How difficult do you thing it would be for me to learn Spanish, then when i've learned that start learning German? Like generally, can most people learn both languages, and end up speaking them both fluently with plenty of practice?

For an English native speaker, Spanish is usually quite easy, but German is aweful. Especially the German grammar is horrible. But perhaps it is more of an advantage to learn something difficult? When you learn first Spanish and then German or the other way around, I don´t think the first language will be a great help when learning the other one.

What free/cheap websites, books, or sofware should I use to learn German?

October 28, 2008 by · 2 Comments 

I am German, but I don't speak the language, and I have not been to Germany. Are there any free/cheap websites, books, or software that can help me learn German? I've heard Rosetta Stone is great, but it is too expensive for me. Also the Muzzy program is just dumb. Any advice would be good.

I answered this question a bit earlier; hopefully, these resources help you out, too!

Is German a relatively straightforward language to learn?

October 26, 2008 by · 21 Comments 

Hi, I would like to learn German but didn't have much luck with languages at school. It sounds to me like English and German are very similar in some aspects and a lot of the worlds I hear on the TV sound virtually identical. Is this the case?

Thanks!

I think if I can do it any one can. I think I was lucky as I lived in germany for 5 years whilst with the Military in Paderborn and Sennelager. My children were quite small then so I got to meet other childrens mothers who were German and they offered to help me learn, It was great! one day we went to my house and spoke nothing but English to teach them, and the next day we would go to a German friends house and speak nothing but german so I learnt quite quickly as I wanted to know what they were saying (in case they were making a fool of me) We could also ask if we didnt know the word.
You will find if you are Scottish it is maybe easier to learn, as a lot of the word sound similiar, (like Gaelic).
Go to a library and get a talking learning disc, and this will help you. also a vorterbook ..german for dictionary/german English you can pick one up very cheap in any shop that sell books.
Can you not get on a course if you are the lad that is in the forces?
