Learning German
Estonia Nap0le0n 
Hi, everyone! I have a question to those one who knows german language. I was planning on learning this language and I have some questions about it. From what point I have to start? How hard is german language? Is it possible to learn it without a tutor? And which are the most complicated parts of german language? Will appreciate every answer!

do you know Latvian though?
2020-05-07 20:07
I know english, russian and estonian
2020-05-07 20:07
english is a good start, russian is useless for german
2020-05-07 20:13
Yeah, they are too different
2020-05-07 20:16
i know some swedes wh o speak very good german just from learning and playing with germans
2020-05-07 20:16
Well, maybe I may find some similarities between german and estonian languages, because Estonia had been under Germany and Sweden for pretty decent amount of time, so our language changed a lot because of it.

German and swedish aren't too different tbh. Same language group after all and grammar especially and some vocabulary are quite similar. Saying this as a Finnish speaker having studied both Swedish and German in the past and Finnish is completely different to both these two.

Ye learning german as a swede at least for me is kinda easy
2020-05-09 00:17
Russian will at least give you a headstart in grasping the concept of Noun Cases, otherwise it won't help much
2020-05-08 16:43
There are genders in German, so it's not completely useless
2020-05-07 20:20
yes but they are often random, so u have to memorized so many things, - we have genders- neutral- der feminin - die masculin- das but its mostly random what is what, so u have to memorize and many more shit
2020-05-07 20:23
Yeah, I heard about that, may be it will be one of the hardest obstacles
2020-05-07 20:26
some have problems after living 40 years in germany with that, some are pretty good with it after 3 years, its depends on your brain i think, lets wish u have a good one xD
2020-05-07 20:27
I hope so)
2020-05-07 20:28
but most russians take it pretty good with that genders, so maybe u have a good start with it when u talk russian
2020-05-07 20:29
I know German a bit and I dare to say that there are hints like endings and stuff, also the genders usually match with Russian language but ofc there are exceptions like 'das Mädchen' you just have to learn. Also the pronunciation in German is very strong and not flawed like in English so it's another point that the languages are similar.
2020-05-07 20:32
yes u right thats what i mean with random - the girl = das mädchen its not feminin its neutral- the father figure = die vaterfigur its feminin - and endings and endings in different times its also not easy thats right, but u can get used to it when u really want , but some will never do it right i see that often xD
2020-05-07 20:38
-chen is a dimunitive form and in German always neutral Vaterfigur is a compound word and in German the ending part of a compound word determines the gender
2020-05-08 16:47
i know my friend, dont teach me teach them ^^^ but its hard to understand when u learn it
2020-05-08 17:19
It's just to add some more explanation to your comment not trying to teach you specifically

I have the same question, I usually watch different video on YouTube, I can give you a link in pm
2020-05-07 20:11
Thank you very much
2020-05-07 20:14
need no tutor, it gives good apps and many stuff on youtube, for just talking it a bit its not so hard, to master it and made good sentences which not sound like u are retarded or 5 years old its hard i would say, the problem is to learn the grammar, mostly u need it for your motherlanguage then or its really hard to understand, or u have to talk a lot, but when u want talk german like my trashenglish than go for it , thats not so hard i think
2020-05-07 20:12
Thank you for your detailed response
2020-05-07 20:16
u are welcome
2020-05-07 20:17
and to understand is not so hard either,
2020-05-07 20:18
I've an question as well, I will be moving to Germany(not sure which part of Germany yet). My German is on B1 level but I want to improve it to b2/c1. Does Germany finance german classes?
2020-05-07 20:26
I am pretty sure about that
2020-05-07 20:27
I think so too but internet says they provide learning for unemployed immigrants. As to your question I have to say that learning german is a very good choice in countries like ours in terms of career, besides german is rather easy and entartaining to learn, you just need to practice grammar.
2020-05-07 20:32
Thank you, good luck with moving to Germany
2020-05-07 20:40
no we dont pay it for u , u can study here for free as an european, but not taking german classes , that u have to pay by yourself, maybe some pople make it for free, but not schools go to west north or southgermany, more money better jobs... the best southgermany , go not to the east , just berlin maybe, 200.000 polaks here so u are not alone, and jsut 1 hour to poland , but not so muich money like south germany
2020-05-07 20:55
When are you planning to move to Germany?
2020-05-07 21:02
If you go as a student. You have to pay for it. But still cheap. If you do it cuz you have a Job (then maybe your company pays it) or do you search a Job it will be paid when you have the right to get Hartz 4 (I dunno if you have the right for it after you come, I guess u have to work several years in Germany before you have the right as none german). There also integration associations that could help you but you have to search them on your own.
2020-05-07 21:13
the best way to learn a language is just starting speaking it..... the learning way isnt different from any other language, Just buy a ticket to Germany and start talking, reading books, watching vids and doing everything on German .... I assume u gonna do something with that language? or just randomly start learning a language? then waste of time
2020-05-07 20:34
I just want new experience and with more languages I will have more opportunities in Europe. Right now its impossible to travel due to covid, but videos and books are good variants. Thank you for the answer.
2020-05-07 20:37
Der Dativ ist dem Genitiv sein Tod Means the 4 cases will be the hardest from all. Other things that are hard to master: Commata, der, die, das. Time: Past cuz we have two times there and both are used
2020-05-07 20:38
Ok, I will remember this, thank you
2020-05-07 20:41
actually we have 3 times for past das Perfekt: Ich habe Deutsch gelernt. das Imperfekt / Präteritum: Ich lernte Deutsch. das Plusquamperfekt: Ich hatte Deutsch gelernt. Most important to not sound like a retard in Germany is, that you can use the 4 cases and der, die, das That will trigger any native speaker when you do it wrong
2020-05-07 20:45
Are they similar to english or not?
2020-05-07 20:49
Perfekt =an action ended in the past Prätrium= expresses facts and actions in the past. Plusquamperfek= pluperfect--> means this is the past before the past. English has more strict borders between the timelines Perfekt is used the most
2020-05-07 21:04
Ok, I think It may be possible for me
2020-05-07 21:07
The same as English past tenses
2020-05-08 16:53
Don't forget about the retarded future past tense
2020-05-08 16:54
But you're forced to assume whether it's der, die or das because AFAIK there's no rule to it, so you're bound to trigger some native speakers that 10% time (idk if that's a correct statistic, I just know most words are die) when it isn't die.
2020-05-08 19:34
Die is more used cuz you use it for Plural Der Afpel -Die Äpfel Die banane Die Bananen Der Mann - die Männer Das Haus - Die Häuser But for singular, there is no statistic that "die" comes most of the time. We have also cases like "Laptop" people say Der Laptop but das Laptop is also correct but sounds stupid.
2020-05-08 22:54
Still you're basically guessing which one it is if you don't know beforehand, right?
2020-05-08 23:09
There is no rule that fits always. And people still fight about: is it "die, der or das Nutella"

Its hard, our grammatic is fairly complicated. But if you put time and effort into it im sure you can do it. I'd recommand a tutor tho since its not that easy.
2020-05-07 20:39
Thank you for the answer
2020-05-07 20:40
german is super easy if you know english
2020-05-07 20:51
i know americans , who lives here since 30 years, they speak like 1 year here xD , its not the same
2020-05-07 20:57
they might be just dumb
2020-05-07 20:58
i think its lazyness, because many germans have a really good english. iam not
2020-05-07 21:00
an american is a bad example because they'll never learn another language properly, they just expect everyone to speak english and adapt to them
2020-05-07 21:02
^^ yes

I only know basic everyday sentences like ich haben eine juden toten
2020-05-07 20:51
I dont know german, but for some reason I understood that
2020-05-07 21:01
Ich habe einen Juden getötet. But not nice my friend xD
2020-05-07 21:04
Getötet is pronounced like toten?
2020-05-07 21:09
no i will kill u = ich werde dich töten i killed u = ich habe dich getötet stand up from the death = auferstanden von den toten
2020-05-07 21:11
My Bad :(
2020-05-07 21:40
better then my finlandia my friend
2020-05-07 21:44
Toten is a noun töten verb and sounds different cuz of O and Ö
2020-05-07 21:22
^^ Toten with a big T when u want to make it perfect but töten can be also a noun- das Töten
2020-05-07 21:28
sure but in the context of the comment, töten was used as a verb. We aren't here to teach them all German. None of them is teaching English... to us But thanks that you support them
2020-05-07 22:07
its corona time baby
2020-05-07 22:09
You can learn a lot from watching kids shows. There is a German show meant to teach small German children the alphabet, numbers, concepts like small/large wet/dry and so on - and it is on youtube. youtube.com/user/SesamstrasseNDR
2020-05-07 21:29
Thank you for the answer!
2020-05-07 21:38
You're welcome. I really learned a lot of German watching those shows as a young child. As a grown up the content as such will not be as entertaining, but I think it should give a quick boost to German language skills.
2020-05-07 22:20
That's a really great idea, I've never seen anyone suggest that
2020-05-08 19:37
wer?

Das ist ein kartoffelnpüree in mein lederhosen.

Übung macht den Meister
2020-05-07 21:51
Try phone app duolingo
2020-05-07 22:04
I downloaded lingodeer, it has other languages as well, but I will check it anyway
2020-05-08 15:27
I try, I'm OK at it, but I get lazy and I never get a straight routine to learn it.
2020-05-07 22:06
You just have to motivate yourself
2020-05-08 15:20
Yeah, I'm going to try more this summer when I have more time.
2020-05-08 16:06
Watch german TV with subs
2020-05-07 22:08
Maybe later, firstly I need to understand language structure and at least some words. But thank you for the answer
2020-05-08 15:21
Start with Children level and work your Way up Might take longer but you will learn more and probably understand faster
2020-05-07 22:11
Yep, someone already recommended me some kids shows and programs
2020-05-08 15:23
Just don't, every german I know works in a English speaking company anyway
2020-05-07 23:26
I want some new experience and I also like german language, so at least I will try to learn it for myself
2020-05-08 15:24
Just don't, you won't succeed I know people who live here for 5+ years and they still can't speak it fluently, there is no point in learning german
2020-05-08 16:41
i had a girlfriend she speak very good german after 2 years, but she talked alot and watches much tv to learn it just some genders was sometimes a problem but after a few more month it wentbetter and better
2020-05-08 17:23
shut up dude, anyone that's dedicated can be close to fluent in a couple of years
2020-05-08 17:23
Good luck memorizing all those grammar rules with 842 exceptions.
2020-05-07 23:30
Thank you, russian and the ukrainian languages have more exceptions anyway
2020-05-08 15:26
like the russian language?
2020-05-08 19:04
Honestly to learn any language you should start by getting to know some of the basic vocabulary and grammar rules. When you feel comfortable, start reading texts and watching videos in that language and if you can speak or write with native speakers
2020-05-08 16:57
this is good advice study to learn the basics, the rest is done by listening to other people speak and looking up words and phrases they use that you don't know
2020-05-08 17:29
Thank you for advice, I have got a lot answers, but I still appreciate your opinion
2020-05-08 20:43
Why would you learn jermen? Turk that wants a citizenship?
2020-05-08 17:23
Ok, 3rd world
2020-05-08 20:41
Ur from third world? Well, I doubt jermens will adopt you just because you are from third world :(

2020-05-08 19:07
depends, if ur coming from a country that is similar in its language like benelux, scandinavia or even uk, then it shouldnt be that hard learning basic german, but when it comes to learning german properly it becomes really rough with all the grammar exceptions
2020-05-08 19:09
I want maybe basic knowledge of german, I am just interested in this language

Thank you
2020-05-08 20:47
its possible to learn without a tutor. After learning with beginner material a bit, you should start to learn with input only (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Input_hypothesis is true)
