What is it like to learn German?

What is it like to learn German?

Last week we went for a lovely walk at Southwick Country Park . Those of you who know me, know that I’m always on the lookout for nice pictures that I might be able to use in blog posts.  So when I walked past a stream (the Lambrok Stream) I took a picture and then another one and gradually this idea came into my head.

This stream reminded me of what it’s like to learn German (or any other language), how things start easily and you’re enjoying it until …

Anyway, I turned those photos into a video and hope you’ll like it.


What do you think?

Do you agree with me?

Is this how you sometimes feel when learning German?

If you had to compare learning German to something unrelated, what would it be? (This could possibly be another idea for a blog post ☺)

  1. I have not learned German but it cannot be as illogical as English, so that’s a plus. Either way, I think an instructor is essential to serious learning.

      There are many rules (and exceptions) which makes German a lot more logical than English – especially the spelling and pronunciation. As for an instructor, more and more people are learning on their own. It is doable, but having a teacher, even if only for the odd lesson, is very useful to make sure everything is as it should be.

  2. Learning German was probably the best decision I’ve ever made! It’s been very rewarding over the years, and I recommend it to everyone.
