Fun and Games with German
How to get the best out of learning German and enjoying it at the same time!
As we all know from school, the more fun you have learning a certain subject the easier and more effective it is. There are many methods to have fun while learning a new language.
One of the key elements in learning a new language is to use what you have learned as soon as possible and speak to other people. It`s sometimes a bit nerve-wrecking but at the same time so rewarding. Perhaps you have a friend who speaks German and who would love to practice a bit.
A way to enjoy learning languages are games and quizzes. Why don`t you have a look at the following websites and have a go. Even for the absolute beginner they are fun. I often implement these into my course work or revision. I have to admit that even as a German I quite enjoy doing a few and see how quick I am.
Don`t forget to have a little laugh as well. Making mistakes and saying funny things is just part of learning a language and being human. When a friend first said to me "I am just pulling your leg" I asked "Why would you do that?" not knowing what it meant and just visualizing her pulling on my leg.
Watching movies with subtitles is one of the most effective ways to quickly get used to the sound of your target language, especially as there are many different voices. It can tremendously improve your listening and speaking skills and therefore improve your vocabulary.
Travelling to a country in which your target language is spoken is a great way to quickly improve a new language and have some fun with it. It is so rewarding to see how well you are doing. Thanks to the Internet, you can easily make friends online.
I hope this article has inspired you even more. Enjoy learning German!
