      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. How many words per day on memrise?

    A good approach is to learn 5 to 10 words a day, then review them 2 weeks later and then (I believe) 6 months later. I read this somewhere years ago, not sure where though, but to me it makes perfect sense. After all you want to make sure the words stick in your long-term memory. I admire anybody who can memorize 10 or more words a day, that is a great achievement.

Cheers, Katharina
  3. Thank you for the Flowers

    I like the expression, too. They use it in the German intro for Tom and Jerry.
  4. Hey smsst, I suppose you already handed in your paper. Sounds good, some mistakes, but not too many. What level are you in? I suppose at least A2, because you used one subordinate phrase. Careful, "mit" is a Dativ preposition ("mit meiner Familie"). Cheers, Katharina
  5. Hello Tdyoug, How are you getting on with your German? I suppose that your girlfriend is German? I would suggest that you exclusively talk to her in German. It might be a little annoying at first (conversations take longer etc),but this is really the best way. I have experienced this myself. I highly recommend this website: http://www.dw.com/de/deutsch-lernen/s-2055 and this series: Try to study a bit every day and make learning fun. Kind regards, Katharina
