Study In Germany

Can anyone learn the  German language?

Yes. You should not expect it to be simple or easy(it’s not) but anyone can learn a second language just like anyone can learn the first language.

How long does it take?

Some people could attain basic fluency in just a few months, some need a few years so this question is difficult to comprehend. However , It depends on how intensively the person is dedicated towards studying, 

What methods they are utilising and many other factors. If you would like to get feedback about your particular situation, you can ask in our course curriculum, anytime. 

Is this language learning expensive?

Usually it’s not expensive.  If you are careful and buy only the materials that we guide for your need, you will be very successful .The most popular languages - Spanish, French, German, and others - have many websites dedicated towards them and you don’t have to pay anything to use them. However, if you are attempting to learn your first foreign language on your own, we do recommend getting a good course or a good textbook, which is meant for self-learners, not for any classroom use.

Which language is the easiest to learn?

There is no language that would be the easiest for everyone, it all depends on which language(s) you already know. Languages can be arranged in a sort of “family-graph”, which means that there are closely related languages and there are also languages that are not related to one another at all. The closer your chosen language is to your mother tongue or to another language you know well, the easier it will be for you to learn it. For example, Spanish will be comparatively easier for Portuguese speakers while Polish will be relatively easy for Czech speakers. For English speakers, the easiest ni languages to learn are other Germanic languages (German, Swedish, etc.) and also the Romance languages (French, Spanish, etc.).

Please note, though, that the paragraph above is only theoretical. The easiest language for you to learn will be the one you are the most interested in. Think about it - you probably had some language classes at school and chances are you didn’t learn much in them. There could be several reasons for that, but the most important one is that you probably cared more about getting a good grade in the class than about really learning the language. So if you want to learn Japanese or Arabic or Russian or any language perceived to be difficult - go for it, don’t be afraid, just make sure to get good materials to guide you.

What is necessary for a language learner to have in order to be successful?

There are four main things that any language learner needs:

Motivation - There can be various reasons you want to learn a language. Maybe you have friends or colleagues who speak the language, or perhaps it’s your parents or grandparents with whom you’d like to go on a vacation in the country, perhaps you think it would benefit your career, or perhaps you like movies or songs in the language. Whatever it is, it should be strong enough to motivate you to learn the language beyond a few weeks. If you lack motivation, your studies will be half-hearted at best and your brain won’t remember newly formed words and grammar concepts because it will not be understood properly. 

Good resources - Every language is different, and in order to learn your chosen demographic language, you need someone to explain to you how it is built and how it works. It can be a teacher or a tutor, or it can be a textbook or a course. There are small or rare languages for which only one or two resources are available, and you have little choice in that case, but the big languages have many different resources available and not all of them explain the language equally well. It’s a good idea to check the reviews of any course or textbook you consider buying, and you can also take a look at our resources section on our WIki page 

Time - Learning a language takes many hundreds of hours of dedicated study so you need to think about how best to integrate the studies into your daily routine. If your days are very busy and you are able to study only on weekends, it will take a very long time for you to reach any kind of proficiency. There’s also the problem that you will forget a lot from one Sunday to the next Saturday if you don’t study in between, therefore we recommend studying every day, if only 15 or 20 minutes.

Discipline - If you have ever made a resolution to work out more or to eat healthier meals, you know that discipline - actually doing the things you have planned - is very important, and it’s equally important for language learning. If you have free time and good language materials but you spend time on the internet instead of studying then it’s a problem. That’s why motivation is so important: the higher the motivation, the less self-discipline problems you will have.
