Lesson 1: Pronounciation

If you want to learn German you will first of all have to know the German pronounciation which is slightly different to the English. As learning how to speak the words is hard if you do it just by reading, I found this video which, in my opinion explains the German pronounciation quite well. It also includes the umlauts ä-ö-ü, which are quite hard for most foreigners and the most difficult letter constellation "ch".
good luck ;)

  8. Most Americans have a very difficult time learning other languages. Luckily I have two foreign parents, and as such was raised multilingual. German does seem difficult, however.

  14. Always wanted to pick up a little German, would certainly help with some of the reading that I like to do, Nietzsche, especially.

    I know some Spanish but that doesn't help much with that lol.

    Thanks for the intro's.
