It was mentioned as early as 56 BC by Julius Caesar after he crossed the Rhine River from Gaul (France) to Germania (Germany). The Rhine is one of the most important rivers in Europe and you probably have heard of its fabulous Castle.
Many of the castles and churches in Germany were severely damaged during the Second World War. They have all be re-built in the original style with one exception – they now have modern conveniences such as running hot and cold water and central heating. Some of the castles have been converted into luxury Hotels.
Wouldn’t it be great to visit some of these castles and converse with Germans in their own tongue? Or you might want to view them from the luxury and comfort of a tour boat. They sail all the way from Basil, Switzerland to Amsterdam, Holland. During the trip you could practice German with the other passengers. You can achieve this with Learning German Language.

Nothing is more fulfilling than being told that you are doing something well.

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.
