Author: Hello Germany Master School
Format: Kindle Edition
As society becomes more global, you should equip yourself with knowledge of foreign languages. What better language to start with than German?
German has a reputation for being a difficult language to learn especially for English speakers. While there is some truth to that - its grammar rules are more complicated and it has sounds that don’t exist in the English language – learning a new language will always be a challenge, no matter what it is, to foreign language learners.
This book, Learn German for Beginners, offers an effective way to learn the basics of German. But first, let’s be clear about what this book isn’t. If you’re looking for a book that offers a method for mastering a language in few simple steps, this isn’t it. If you want a book that can make you fluent in German in no time, this also isn’t it. In fact, if you found a book or any language learning resource promising those kinds of things, throw them away. Learning a new language takes time and dedication. Unless you’re gifted, there’s no shortcut. So, what can you expect from this book? Chapter 1 is all about the basics. You’ll learn about the German alphabet, which is similar to the English alphabet but sounds differently, how to pronounce words the right way, and how to deal with numbers. This chapter will also show you that you already know a significant amount of German words even before you decided to study it. The second chapter deals with nouns and its companion, the articles. It explains how to identify which nouns are masculine, feminine, or neuter and how to form the plural. As an English speaker, the concept of having gendered nouns may be unusual. This chapter is filled with examples so you can start familiarizing yourself with them. In Chapter 3 you will learn about verbs and how to conjugate them. It also explains the different verb tenses that you are most likely to use and encounter as a beginner in the German language. Chapter 4 is about the German case system. This is one of the topics that makes many learners of the German language scratch their head. Cases may seem strange when you first encounter them but if you’re still familiar with the concepts of English grammar, understanding cases won’t be difficult and you’ll only need to memorize the rules.
You’ll also learn in this chapter how to form your own simple German sentences. In Chapter 5, you’ll learn about adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions. This chapter discusses in detail the different rules on how to properly use these words when you build sentences. Chapters 6 to 10 contains words and expressions that you will find useful for everyday situations and for when you go on a trip to a German-speaking country. Finally, each chapter ends with a set of exercises so you can gauge how well you’re doing on your German learning journey.
So, if you want to improve your reading, writing, and speaking skills in this language, you need to make a change. Decide for yourself that you want to gain more opportunities. Take this risk.
You will not regret it.
This book is everything you need as a beginner.
