is german an important language to learn?

November 27, 2008 by · 7 Comments 

compared to portuguese or Italian? I am fluent in English, French, and Spanish and was wandering whether I should learn German or not. Im planning on become a doctor, being in research, or chemist. which language is more important globally in this case? I was thinking portuguese would be good since 200 million speak it but only in brazil,portugal, and 2 african countries. I need help!

NO! There is no reason to learn German. 99% of all germans speak English. There's no reason to learn that language (even if it sounds cool)

How can I learn German with a busy schedule?

I always have lots of schoolwork to do and rarely anytime for leisure, but I want to learn to speak, read, and write German (I plan to move to Germany in a couple of years).

A good book is "German in 10 minutes a day".
It's a good book to learn the basics and it's structured for a busy person.
My friend used this book when he was first learning German. It must have worked for him, because when I visited him in Heidelberg, he was very comfortable with the language.

Eventually, you will need to listen to tapes/Cd's to become familiar with the language. Check your local schools for conversational German classes.

I you know anyone who speaks the language, spend time with them and speak German.

Can you take a German class at your school, for credit toward your degree?

Good luck.

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

November 7, 2008 by · 3 Comments 

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.


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.

All right, I pour a little honey on there. Honey is good. Tastes good. A bit of honey on the finger. The honey is excellent. Wonderful. OK, then we need … ah. Chocolate. We place the chocolate in the middle. Mmm, wonderful. Then we cut a little butter off. But the knife is dirty. We must clean the knife. I’ll wash the knife.

Here. Like this. I am washing the knife. Now. I’m washing the knife. The knife is not dirty. It is now clean. And we cut a little butter off. Like this. And we throw the butter in the pan. Like this. And then, yes, a little heat with that, on the stove.

And the butter is melting. Look– the butter is melting. So. Very good. It will taste good. It is delicious. Chocolate and peanut butter sandwich. Mmm it is delicious. Chocolate sandwich. Ok, the butter is melting. We place the bread in the pan. Like this. Shake the pan. Mmm, class. I can smell it. It smells fantastic. Chocolate sandwich. It smells…Ok, 1 minute on the stove.

Now we place this sandwich on the plate. Very good. And we get a napkin. Here. The fork in one hand and the knife in the other hand. And then we cut a piece off. And we eat it. Oh, class, enjoy.
