Back in about 1980 I did a year of German at high school.
The teacher was an entertaining guy.
I remember once he put his briefcase of teaching materials (but not, I hope, his lunch) on the floor in the aisle between the rows of desks.
And jumped up and down on the top of it, in frustration.
We kids must have been a bunch of thickheads. And German seemed impossible and, well, foreign…
A lot of time has passed since then, and I’ve successfully picked up bits and pieces of other languages.
At the moment I’m learning Swedish, which (like English) has plenty in common with German.
So, perhaps the time has come to have another look at the language, especially as there’s so much great stuff on the Internet these days.
I plan to post links to the most useful resources I find.
And perhaps to pen the occasional article with study tips and summaries of what I learn…
