I know another resource that is really useful to practice speaking.
There are listening parts and then practicing parts.
The nice side of it is the page is completely free. I strongly recommend it.

I'm trying to pick up russian here, using Living Language's The Basics - Russian and duolingo. The book is very good for actual rules, writing, pronunciation, etc. Duolingo is great for casual practice. :+1:

- Great clip garry thanks.
- In English, I like quotation books and lists of idioms/proverbs (wise phrases). So similar lists in German would be great, be they quotes translated to German, or original German quotes.

Learning a language by going to clubs?
Or did I misinterpret the meaning of clubbing?

I like to learn languages on the go with apps like babbel or duolingo. If you do that on a daily basis, you get on well.

You will get by quite well with english in Germany, at least if you avoid the elderly :wink:.
Cheers :xmas:.
I work for a German company, I kinda like them. Besides that, I have colleagues from more than 20 countries I like diversity. I usually visit the HQ in Stuttgart, I am always amazed how bright-minded everyone in Germany. It's like another planet. Since I hear a lot of German talks, I started to learn it again. The economy is stable they feed the whole EU. :roll:

Dutch is like a messed up version of German

Code: Select all

nl-'het winkel'  de-'der Laden'
de-'der Winkel'  nl-'de  hoek'
nl-'het meer'    de-'der See'
de-'das Meer'    nl-'de  zee'
nl-'de  krant'   de-'die Zeitung'
nl-'de  tijd'    de-'die Zeit'
nl-'bellen'      de-'anrufen'
de-'bellen'      nl-'blaffen'
afrikaans like dutch :

Een Belg, en 2 Engelsen krijgen een botsing. Zegt de Engelse: “I am sorry.” Zegt de 2e Engelse: “I am sorry too.” Zegt de belg: “I am sorry 3.”
A bear went into a bar and ordered a beer. He gave the bartender a twenty and
the bartender went to the other end of the bar to put the money in the
register. The second bartender whispered to the first, "He's a bear, what
does he know, shortchange him." The first bartender brings the bear $10 in
change. A little while later the bartender starts talking to the bear and
mentions, "We don't get many bears in this bar." The bear replies, "I'm not
surprised, at $10 a beer I sure won't be back again....
