  1. Thought of moving in Germany for a long period of time? Or say forever? How about just thought of trying to live there for months or years. Seriously if you have that thoughts now. I am absolutely recommending you to learn the language. Before I moved in here, I did my research on how can I in anyways with my basic German knowledge deal with everyday life. And then I read somewhere that that would not be a problem, since people in in Germany do really communicate with English as well. But when I arrived there I learned the reality that I have to go to the German language school and deepen my knowledge on the language, because believe me, if you are living in town like me where majority of the people are kind a old already your basic would not be enough. I remember when I went to the bakery once and although the saleslady was not that old, she did not speak English with me, despite my try on talking to her and show her that I do not speak German. I was frustrated after that. Everytime I do simple activity like asking direction, asking for a price of this and that stuff, I felt devastated to always speak with sign language with my mixed English and so poor basic German. So one day I decided to pick up myself and learn the language seriously as best, as fast as possible. And then after a while, I was happy I did that. Now I feel confident and feel free to communicate with Germans. How about you? What was your experience the first time you came in Germany? Did you have it worse? better? How fast did you learn the language? P.S. If you want some tips on how did I learn the language efficiently, feel free to ask. I would be glad to give you some insights :-)

  3. Hi everyone! I'm native Finnish speaker, currently studying German, Swedish, Japanese and French. I'm 24 years old and live in Finland. I became interested in different languages, because of my job. I'm studying to become classical vocal teacher and I'm going to graduate next month. As a classical singer I've been performing songs in German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Swedish, Finnish and English. Right now I wish to focuse my language studies to German, because it's the most important language for my career. Nice to meet you!
  4. Hallo, Leute! Ich will mein Schriftdeutsch zu üben und ich werde meistens täglich die Sätze tippen. Korrigier bitte meine Fehler. (Should I type „Korrigier ihr bitte“ if I politely ask several people?) Feel free to express any criticism and suggestions for improvement. Danke! 14.12.2017 Gestern Morgen ich besuchte ein Einstellungsgespräch. Personalleiterin aufgeführt sich ziemlich wahnsinnig und nicht bekannt gab Gehalt der angebotene Stelle. Dann ich ging zur Arbeitsamt weil vorgestern ich vergass da eines Dokument. Und danach ich besuchte noch ein Arbeitgeber weil ich war zu dem nachsenden bei (or von?) Beamtin des Arbeitsamt. (Should I indicate gender of a person in cases when some civil servant is a woman or it would be appropriate to say “Beamte”. Would it be correct to say “Arbeitsamt Beamtin“?) I named the MS Word document in which I type this “Die Übung des schriftlicher Ausdruck“. Are there any errors in the name? 15.12.2017 Heute Mittag ich bei Stellenangebote rief an. Ich mir mit zwei Arbeitgebern verabredet sein. Später ich das Geschirr abwaschen liess. Dann, während des Essens, mir eine Television Serie sah an. Zur Abschluss des Tages, ich besuchte ein Lebensmittelgeschäft und Deutsch studierte. 16.12.2017 Ich verbrachte vier Stunde zu einem Einstellungsgespräch gehen. Inhaber des Flieseladen hat angeboten mir eine Stelle, aber der Beginn der Arbeit ist nach Neujahr, in Januar. Das ist nicht so gut weil ich zöge vor morgen zu arbeiten zu anfangen. P. S. How to turn off the spellchecking on this forum? It underlines all the text that not in English. How to avoid skipping a line after each pressing of the enter key? This way it looks quite ugly.
  5. Hi I need to write a text in german and i was wondering in anyone could read it and point out any problems with the grammar or sentences. I am a beginner in german and i wanna write a very simple text (simple sentences). I havent really figured out how to write umlauts on my keyboard so bear with me. (I suck with computers :-) ) Meine Reise nach Dublin. Sommer sind ich und meine Familie nach Dublin gefahren. Mein erste Tag in Dublin war viel spaB. Um 9 Uhr wecken ich habe fruhstuck. Nach den fruhstuck sind wir zuruck zu der Zimmer gegangen. Um 12 Uhr haben wir in der Stadt (shoppen?). Wir haben viele kleidung und Souvinieren gekauft. Darauf haben wir in einen gute Restaurant gegessen. Es war sehr gut essen. Darauf haben wir ein Tourist tour mitgenehmen. Wir haben viele gesehen. Wir haben Molly Malone statue, St. Patrick kirche und der posthause gesehen. wir haben auch einen Boot entlang der Flut Liffey genehmen. Es war echt cool! Darauf sind wir nach den Hotel zuruck gegangen. Meine Schwester und ich haben in der pool gebadet. Das wasser war warm und schön. Am Abend sind wir ins Kino gegangen. Wir haben Tarzan mit Alexander Skarsgård gesehen. Er ist ein Swedische Schauspieler. Der Film war sehr gut!. Nach der Film sind meine Schwester und ich nachtclub gegangen. wir haben viel stundenlang getanzt. Wir war totmude wenn wir ins Bett gegangen. Meine Reise nach Dublin war wunderbar und ich will bald zuruck fahren. I really hope i havent butchered your language :-)
  6. Hi, everyone! I'm native Russian speaker, just started to learn German (few months) and want to have practice, also i'm fluent in English I can also help with learning of Russian!
  7. Hello, will you help me to correct and figure out the language rule in this sentence below? I wrote this today: "Ach ja, ein zarte Mann mit Harfe ist sehr nett ein Bild." Then, thinking about the sentence, and the fact that "nett" is modifying the noun "Bild", I changed it to this: " ... ein zarte Mann mit Harfe ist sehr nettes ein Bild." Since the adjective is coming before the noun, does it take the -es ending? May it even be: " ... ein zarte Mann mit Harfe ist sehr nett eines Bild"? Can you help me to correct this sentence, and help me to understand the language rule at work? - Also, as an aside inquiry: I am a man, but a partly feminine man. Somehow, I feel odd to express "Ach ja". Is this generally more of a man's expression, if speaking purely culturally about Germanic nations? In my head, I imagine it is to be uttered in a gruffer, manlier kind of voice, and cannot really hear it in my own voice, which is soft for a man, and still quite boyish even into my late 20s. I do not know if this matters, but it is kind of interesting to me.
  8. Hi! I'm Ryan, 17 years old from the US. My main goal is to learn German, preferably from a native speaker, but if you're fluent I'd gladly accept your help I can help you learn English in exchange too, as it's what I'm fluent in. If you're interested please leave a response, thanks!

  10. Can you help me translate this sentence to german: My old sorrows have come back to haunt me.
  11. Hello, i am looking for a little bit of help. If anyone can offer some that would be great. a very good friend of mine has just had a baby and his wife is german. I am looking to buy them a picture that says dream big lukas. but I would like to get it done in german. Could anyone translate it correctly for me? I have found three different translations on the internet. many thanks ade
  12. Hello all, I am working on a project that requires a request to be translated in French, German, Italian and Spanish. I've used a translation app but don't trust it completely. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here's the situation: a group of study abroad students will be going overseas to work on conversational skills (France, Germany, Italy, Mexico). What would be a nice written way to ask people, politely, to engage in conversation with these students for the purpose of practice? Perhaps a translation of "I would appreciate practice speaking (French, German, Italian, Spanish)". The fewer words the better. Thanks so much everyone!
  13. Hey! I'm a native English speaker who's very new to German and Mandarin, and would like to find someone I can skype with regularly to practice. I also speak intermediate level Spanish, and am near fluent in French, and would love to skype with people who are fluent/native in those languages. Cheneil
  14. Hi, just looking for a German language learning friend who i can work with and do some practice sessions together. Currently completed my A2 level and looking forward to gear up to B1.

  15. I have created this app called: Beelinguapp, i think it is the most useful tool, with it you can hear and read texts in 2 languages side by side, using your native language as a reference. This has helped me with my german quite a lot to achieve a great level. It has some short children stories and also some interesting books and new articles. Please give me feedback about it and I will add it to the app to improve it! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.david.android.languageswitch
  16. My app Beelinguapp shows texts in two different languages side by side, and it is an audiobook at the same. It shows a karaoke animation to follow the audio. It has been getting some track lately and I would love to get some feedback! You can download it here (Android only for now): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.david.android.languageswitch
  17. Hey there! As it says in the topic already I want to find out if Lingoda is an option for me. I want to learn german but I am not sure if this is the right way to do it. I have a tight time schedule and need to be flexible so I like the idea of learning online via skype. Also I need a B2 certificate which is offered by them. At least it says so on their homepage.... So my question is: How is the quality of teaching there? Is there anyone who tried it already and can tell me if its worth it? And did anyone try the coupon code "op3t94"? I was said it there is a discount of 50$ when booking the first time. But I am afraid of trying since I don't know if I could cancel if it does not work
  18. I'm currently in my early 20s and have had infrequent spells of German classes since I was 13, although, the last of these was several years ago. The casual German conversations I hold with native speakers are riddled with grammatical errors but I certainly know enough to brute force my way through most situations. I'm keen on sitting the B2/C1 German language exams but don't know where to begin. There are so many interlinked concepts and rules and I'm not sure how to structure my studies for these exams. I'm definitely riding on shaky grammatical foundations. I'd really appreciate advice on how to structure my studies for these exams. More specifically, I'd appreciate a hierarchy of concepts that demonstrates the governing principles, and advice on what order to learn them in, given that I already know the basics. Thanks in advance!

  24. It's not my site but... I believe you all might find it useful. WordBrewery is a new website that pulls sentences from the news. They are then categorized by level and topic. There's also a search bar so you can find specific words in context. Audio, translation, and the source article are included. It's also possible to save words and sentences to lists, and export these to Anki. It's currently free to use. Like every other app, all you need to do is register. Personally... I use it for German, as it doesn't have Hindi yet. But it's rather nice, because it's hard to find advanced materials for many languages I'm interested in, such as Modern Greek and Arabic. I use it as a warm up and to find context to words. I'm also considering using Anki, so if I decide to, I'll start exporting all my lists. Current Languages: Arabic Spanish French Italian Portuguese English Swedish Russian Serbian Japanese Modern Greek Polish Hungarian Ukrainian Norwegian Korean Chinese German
  25. Hello. I would appreciate if someone could have a look at what I wrote in German. I guess it may be a bit overdone and a bit naive (more or less on purpose), but I really need it to be like that, and thus I'm asking only for straightening up the grammar and any other mistake, with as little change as possible. Thank you very, very much! 1. Wenn sie ein braunhaariges Mädchen sähen, wäre das vielleicht ich. Außerdem bin ich 180 cm groß und ich sehe weder muskulös noch anämisch aus. So eine normale Person. Mein Hobby ist Literatur. Ich interessiere mich auch für Medizin, deshalb plane ich eine Ärztin zu werden. Ich werde vielleicht in Oxford studieren. Man sagt, dass Frauen unbeständig sein, nicht wahr? Ich würde sagen, es ist wirklich. Wenn ich jünger war, war ich schüchtern. Im Gegensatz zu meiner früheren Persönlichkeit, ich bin jetzt eher selbstsicher. Obwohl meine Mutter mich ungesellig findet, habe ich viele enge Freunde. Sie meinen, ich bin nett, hilfsbereit und ernst. Ich weiß nicht, ob das richtig ist. Ich bin einerseits ernster als mein Vater, der immer scherzt. Andererseits bin ich nicht ebenso reif, wie alle Anderen glauben. Ab und zu möchte ich etwas Dummes tun. Meistens muss ich einfach für meine Verwandten zuständig sein. Ich bin kein Einzelkind, trotzdem lebe ich nur mit meinen Eltern. Da meine Brüder älter sind, besitzen sie ihre Häuser. Ich liebe einen der meiner Geschwister sehr. Der zweite jedoch nimmt mich nicht ernst, so dass wir einander nicht respektieren können. Ich wünsche, diese Beziehung besser wäre. Zum Glück, mit meiner Eltern streite ich mich nicht zu oft. Ich freundete mich sogar mit meine Stiefmutter an, nachdem wir zusammen gewohnt hatten. Sie ist zu lieb, als dass ich ihr nicht gernhaben könnte. 2. Meiner Meinung nach, Reisen bildet. Ich reise sehr gern, trotzdem mag ich mein Haus. Ich träume besonders davon, um die Tschechien oder Deutschland zu besuchen. Das ist aber ganz teuer ins Ausland zu fahren und sonst verbringe ich meine Ferien nur in meiner Nähe, wo ich höchstens ins Museum oder ins Kino gehen kann. Das lässt sich trotz allem mögen. Letztes Jahr bin ich nach England während meiner Ferien umgezogen. Danach bin ich nach Polen für einige Tage geflogen, damit meine Mutter gesehen hat. Dort habe ich mich erholt am besten, indem Theater gegangen bin. Sobald ich nach Huddersfield zurückgekommen bin, musste ich meine Sache auspacken. Aufgrund dieser Beschäftigung war es keine Zeit für weiteren Spaß. Ich warte, bis ich erwachsen werde, anstatt sich über den Mangel an Geld zu beschweren. Sollte ich mehr Geld haben, so werde ich die Welt besichtigen. Wie ich erwähnte, Deutschland wird von mir natürlich besucht werden. Ich wünsche auch, dass ich in die Tschechien fahren konnte. Ich denke, alle diese Länder sind zu bewundern. Am liebsten würde ich aber in Japan vorübergehend wohnen, um dort mich um eine Stelle zu bewerben. Erfahrung wäre kostbar. Danach käme ich nach Polen zurück, weil hier sich meine Familie niederlassen.
