GERMANS COME
 | 
Hong Kong Shazil 
Hello Germans. I am currently studying in the United Kingdom from SK and after my studies i am thinking of working in Germany. This is of course 3 years away but i am wondering if german is a hard language to learn? Plus if it is worth moving there.

no one can really tell you if you haven't tried yourself. for some it's easy for some it's hard. it's a germanic language so for dutch people or scandinavians it's not rly hard to learn it i guess since our languages share similarities. and compared to other languages like slavic or asian languages it's easy.
2021-09-21 19:25

i wouldn't go that far but if you also speak some low german dialect and not only high-german(standard german) it's very similar and understandable

what would be low german? northern german dialects? high german would be southern?
2021-09-21 21:23

yes kinda mid-west-northern would apply to low german varieties, there's like a dialectical split between the "lowlands" and the "highlands" and many dialects within each group

Id say German is hard. However Germany is certainly a very nice place to live. Switzerland is even nicer (Im not biased whatsoever nonono). Learning German well so you can live in one of these countries is definitely worth it. But the UK isnt half bad itself.

Compared to other languages I would say it is around average. If you know english already, you get half of the german vocabulary for free, which is nice. The grammar is pretty complex and has a lot of rules. Phonetically, the pronunciation is on the harder side imo, but no one cares if you can't pronounce the different ch sounds perfectly. It's a very logical language, which helps with the learning process

i don't think english is a good comparison nowadays. modern english got like over 60% of their words from french or latin, they don't use many original germanic words anymore as german, dutch, scandinavian languages do and german grammar is obviously more complex.

Still, the languages are closely related, something like chinese or korean have very dofferent structures compared to european languages

Uhmm, I’m pretty sure the most common English words are Germanic. When you want to describe something you usually don’t use Germanic words though

2021-09-21 21:13
depends on what you want to achieve. Learn enough german to have normal daily life interactions and get through your life ? -> easy peasy Learn proper german cuz you need to speak good german in your job / business talks or anything -> kinda hard cuz der/die/das = the is hard to master and learn all the small grammar details. But imo that really only counts if you need good/perfect german in talked form for your job. Written form its always easier to have "good" quality since you can double check etc pp but normal daily life german you can easiely pick up fast
2021-09-21 20:09
You could also move to Austria because we have many asian students in salzburg :)

ofcourse. depends on the time, u want to stay in germany. in my old university we got like 2k chinese students, which only speak english and mandarin. most of them dont speak a word german, but they get easily through here. if u want to live in a country for more than 2 years, u should know at least some basics for normal situations like in bakerys or sth like that. not everyone is speaking english here but even there u can just show with ur finger, would u want and its easy. so it depends on what u want to reach here. what are ur plans here in germany?

for normal ppl i wouldnt say its that hard, but for a jackass like urself its probably best to not even waste ur time trying. also european women arent interested in asians so thats another negative.

even germans fail on the 4 cases. So it is hard. And if you want a good live work balance Germany isn't the correct country for you. expect to pay 30-50% of your income for rent. And you will need a car etc. Mobile Internet is fucking expensive a full flat cost 80€. So at the end of the month, you have maybe 5% for your own not necessary things.

2021-09-21 20:58
finally a thread i can give advice about i moved to germany 2 years ago with my parents ( im 16 ), and even my friends in school admit that their language is shit and hard af, but if you know english then you have it easier because there are many words that are similar to the english word, for example bring / bringen. i have been living here for 2 years and i still wouldnt say i know the language perfectly even though i talk with friends at school. i have never been to a particular school only to learn german, everything that i know i learned it by talking with others. my mom spends way more time learning actual words than i do but when it comes to talking she gets confused because she doesnt have any germans at work to talk to. if you sit down and learn words properly and actually use them, 2 years are enough for you. hope this helps

if you speak a good bit of english its not that hard and you can get by with that in bigger towns and city while syou learn german also while sure its not quite english but there is enough material to learn german decently well
2021-09-21 21:07
grammar is gonna be a pain (you will likely never perfect German grammar when writing), but for basic/intermediate communication (mostly verbally) will be pretty easy to learn if you're good in English

Yo guys im going for 'Probetag' tommorrow, just to try a job hopefully get the contract eventually. I learned German in highschool for couple of years so i know the basics i think. But im kinda afraid as I heard the Bayern dialect is quite desticnt from the 'standart' German so If I'll be able to understand something at all. I'm not counting on English obviusly.
