  1. It should have been read: "You don't get a six-pack from drinking [them]!"
  2. "Komm mit!" is a good starter textbook series.

    slang

    Frankly I think it depends on who you're talking to. You'd not use slang in a professional environment but walking around the street with friends I'd assume it's okay.
  4. I see some users have medals in their postbits with different flags. How can I obtain one or more?
  5. I doubt sincerely it is taught in standard German schools. I would be willing to bet it's really only taught for students taking Calligraphy.
  6. Ändern is used for small things, personality traits, etc., whereas verändern is used for bigger things, like your entire life. So, in the context of your question, geändert would be appropriate.
  7. Cats want shoes too* "I have no idea" Man kriegt wahrscheinlich kein Waschbrett vom Saufen.
  8. Downloading it now! Thanks! Also, I did forget one app: iMasterGerman - it contains lots of good charts on German grammar such as pronouns, weak and strong adjective declension, etc. There is a free and paid version: Free: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imastergerman/id594596706?mt=8 Paid: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imastergerman-pro/id605002748?mt=8
  9. There are very few that will teach you a full German course well. There are, however, a combination of good apps that will give you a good handle on grammar and vocabulary: Dict.cc Dictionary: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dict.cc+-dictionary/id521791825?mt=8 German verb trainer: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/german-verb-conjugation-trainer/id417027134?mt=8 German verb conjugations: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/german-verb-conjugator-now/id385464568?mt=8
  10. Here are a couple as well: Grammar review: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~german/Grammatik/Grammatik.html More grammar: http://www.german-grammar.de/grammar/content/english_german_table_of_content.htm German/English dictionary (they have other languages as well): http://www.dict.cc/
  11. I used it for a while and I found it to be a tedious way to learn vocabulary. A method I used was to make stickers of the most common words for things I have in my house. I taped those stickers to the items and that really helped me quite a bit.
  12. It's only capitalized when you're speaking formally. In all other instances, it's lowercase. Also, the word Ihnen is capitalized when speaking formally as well. When I was first learning German, this is the resource I used to memorize pronouns: http://german.speak7.com/german_pronouns.htm
