Are there fun ways to learn German?

Language learning doesn’t have to be a tedious task of memorising verb tables (at least not all of the time).

Duolingo: https://www.duolingo.com/

One fun way of practising German is Duolingo. This free website and app allows you to translate sentences and practising different aspects of grammar. What’s important here is that you practise grammar by using it rather than being prompted to recall an entire table of verb conjugations. Because there is also a smartphone app, Duolingo makes it very easy for you to practise just a little bit every day. In return you gain points and can even compete with your friends.

Read books:

Depending on your level of German it could be fun for you to try reading German books. You don’t have to go for high literature in order to learn, just pick a story you find interesting or maybe a German translation of a book you already know. I personally gained a lot by reading Harry Potter in English when I was first learning English.

Listen to music or podcasts:

No matter what your taste in music is, you’ll find German music you love. Listening to music helps you build your vocabulary and passive understanding. Soon enough you’ll sing along and before you know it you have massively improved your German knowledge without even trying.

Watch films with subtitles:

There are lots of German films you could watch with subtitles. This really helps your comprehension and helps you get used to spoken German.

If you need film, book or music recommendations, feel free to message me!
