There are many reason a person wants to learn another language. The Internet has made it a lot easier, with it’s many language courses available.
So. why do you want to learn German? Is it for business, pleasure, or the best motivation of all, you know or love someone who speaks German? It certainly becomes your pleasurable when you do something out of love.
All you need to do is decide which course is best for you. I like to listen to CD’s on my way to and from work. The time goes faster and I’m learning something new. So instead of listening to music you an listen to a German course.
You’ll start with daily usages, such as “Guten Tag, wie geht es Ihnen?” – hello, how are you? “Mir geht es gut, danke” – I’m doing well, thank you. “Wo gehen Sie hin? – were are you going?. I gehe zum einkaufen” – I’m going shopping.
German is spelled phonetically. Once you’ve learned the sound of the German alphabet, it’s easy to predict how a word is written and pronounced. Think how great you will feel to be able to address Germans in their own tongue: or -” wie gut würden Sie sich fühlen, wenn Sie Deutsche in ihrer Sprachen ansprechen könnten.”
The German spelling reform of 1996 led to public controversy and considerable dispute.
Some state parliaments (Bundesländer) would not accept it (North Rhine Westphalia and Bavaria). The dispute landed at one point in the highest court, which made a short issue of it, claiming that the states had to decide for themselves and that only in schools could the reform be made the official rule—everybody else could continue writing as they had learned it.
