  • Weg or weg, that is the question!
    How can a short German three letter word be complicated? When it has two different pronunciations! The three letters are w, e and g and I often hear people get the pronunciations mixed up. So I’ve made a video for you: In case you want to copy all those words, here there are again: Weg as a noun: Der Weg – path, alley, pathway, alley, journey Der Wegbegleiter [...] The post Weg or weg, that is th...

  • German for Keep Fit Enthusiasts
    A few years ago I wrote a blog post called Keep fit or learn German? Why not do both? It was a fun post for beginners who want to keep fit but also learn German. So I found some fun action video which taught some basic German ☺ But what about keep fit enthusiasts who want to do their daily exercises but at the same time keep up [...] The post German for Keep Fit Enthusiasts appeared first on Ange...

  • Practise your German with Memrise
    I have mentioned Memrise in other blog posts before but feel it needs to have a post on its own, so here it is: According to Wikipedia “Memrise is an online learning tool with courses created by its community. Its courses are mainly used to teach language, but are also used for other academic and nonacademic subjects, including science, music, history, philosophy, and popular culture. [...] The p...

  • Learn German with Modern Literature
    Last year I read an interesting German book called ‘Wilde Jahre in West Berlin’, all about somebody’s time in Berlin during the 1980s. I thoroughly enjoyed the book as it reminded me of some of my youth years despite not having lived in Berlin – and after 1982 not even in Germany. The book is also available in English but I wasn’t interested in that, as for me it had [...] The post Learn German wi...

    Always on the lookout for free resources for you I have before given you links to websites where you can practise your listening skills.

  • German dialects – a game
    During the last nine months I wrote blog posts about 9 different German dialects. I hope you enjoyed them, because now it’s your turn. I found this wonderful German, Austrian and Swiss dialect card on Expedia.de which I was allowed to embed on my blog and which lets you play with some dialects. Click on ‘Entdecken’ and you can then click on various points to hear a German [...] The post German di...
  • German dialects – Bayerisch
    Today’s post is the third and last one about Upper German and we will learn how to speak Bavarian ☺ No, that would be an impossible task, but if you have never heard people speak Bavarian or would like to know more about Bayerisch, or Bayrisch, as it’s also often spelled, then stay here and watch some of the videos I found for you. And a famous story about [...] The post German dialects – Bayeris...

    Lingohut is a wonderful and totally free (apart from a few adverts, but they ensure the exercises are free) website for language learners.

  • German dialects – Fränkisch
    In our 8th blog post of German dialects and second part of Upper German we look at the Franconian language – Fränkisch. Wikipedia says:”Franconia (German: Franken, also called Frankenland) is a region in Germany, characterised by its culture and language, and may be roughly associated with the areas in which the East Franconian dialect group, locally referred to as fränkisch, is spoken.

  • Wir suchen Deutschland – an old children’s book
    When I was born in 1958 my mum was given a birthday present for me by a relative of my grandmother’s. It was a book which she kept for me until I was able to listen to her read the story. She must have read the book to me and let me play with it as the pen drawings on the cover and the slightly ripped pages show.

  • How to say sorry in German
    Sometimes I hear students mixing up “Entschuldigung” and “Entschuldigen Sie” by saying “Enschuldigung Sie”. So, today’s post is a post about the different ways of saying sorry. The noun Entschuldigung can be an apology, an excuse, or sorry. If you need to ask somebody a question and are about to approach them (for example when asking for directions or the time) you can either say “Entschuldigung ...
  • How to learn German when you only have 5 minutes
    Last week I challenged you to practise some German every day for a whole year for at least 5 minutes per day.

For many people it will start well and then [...] The post How to learn German when you only have 5 minutes a...

  • German dialects – Berlinerisch
    Berlinerisch, or Berliner Schnauze, as it’s also lovingly called, is our last post about the middle German dialects. As the name says, Berlinerisch is spoken in Berlin. Anybody learning German who is struggling with the pronunciation of the ‘ch’ in ‘ich’ will love the Berlin dialect, because they say ‘ick’. I can almost hear you sigh and think ‘Why can’t they say this in all of Germany …’ But [.....

      When you start learning German you will come across the alphabet in one of the first lessons and you most likely practise spelling your names or maybe the places you come from.
