It was so cool to understand some words without having to look them up like changer or commencer ;. I think you'll come around: In college we had to pick a third language no Polish-tricks available ;- so I picked Spanish. It went really well. Once I "mastered" Spanish many years later I wanted to give another try to language learning, so I picked German and now it's fun, I even like it! I started learning German about three weeks ago because my fiancee is moving to Hamburg for an academic job and I want to be able to join him. I'd like to either be able to start a doctoral program there or teach secondary school at one of the international schools.
To do that I really need at least A2 and of course B1 would be far better. I am asking this to myself since days.

I am level 6 on german and am able to compose some sentences in it. I had no reason to learn german. I could have chosen french, would have opened a whole lot of movie culture to me, could have learned spanish would have opened a whole lot of Pro Wrestling culture to me. But I really don't know why I started with german. Most of the people here are saying they started since this is their culture, I am Indian, I know my culturally significant language Hindi my heritage language Marvadi and my adopted culture language Gujarati.
There is no connection what so ever to Europe. I still don't have a good reason to start with german. Ever since I was a little kid, I had this instant, powerful connection to the German language. Where other people heard harsh, angry language, I heard beauty. It all made sense to me and came to me very quickly.
At the age of about 6, I began making flash cards and reading books about the language instead of playing outside with friends. My dream is to go into the military as a German translator and be stationed in Germany. I eventually want to live in Germany when I am older, because I find the German culture to be much more hospitable than American culture. I am a native spanish speaker, learning german, I always liked english and became fluent in it, as a personal goal and a professional requirement. German came to my life as a chance to get into further educuation.
The more I was looking information about Germany, the more interesting it became, and the public education system that Germany has is an envy for anynone. I am learning German, firstly, because I like languages even if only speak two ; secondly, I see Germany as the place where I can get a Master's degree of good quality without pays tons of money; thirdly, because I dream about geting a life in Germany that I couldn't get in my home country and finally,German is the language of a country that I admire for many reasons, and unfortunately I wasn't lucky enough to born there.
Because I'm an American who lives in Germany and my three daughters are enrolled in German schools - so command of the language is mandatory if I am to be actively involved in their education. We are also posturing to stay here for the foreseeable future - so learning the language is obviously a necessity. To be completely honest, I was downloading a game on my computer, and it was taking a very long time and I was looking around and I found duolingo and I figured, eh, let's check this out, because I've always wanted to learn a second language because I think being bilingual is really cool and I love hearing things in different languages, and it'll give me something to do while waiting for my game.
German was available, and I've always loved how the German language sounds, and how words are pronounced, despite the harsh sound to it. So I started learning and I thought it was going to be something I do for a week and then forget about it but here I am a month in and really for the first time I'm enjoying learning a language! I had to take a year of Spanish in the 8th grade and took two years of Chinese- neither of which I was all too good at. Doesn't even pertain to the original question at all.
You do not need to have a deep rooted reason. So you just stumbled into learning German. What is more interesting is that you have stuck with it simply because you like it. In all seriousness, though, I love language in general: Regarding German in particular Finally, in my professional life, I have some interest in the history of science and medicine, and there is a wealth of primary resources that are still available only or best read in the original German.
What it really means is that enough people know English that you can get through Germany without major obstacles. That's fine but it really is a very filtered experience. Many people don't speak English or don't speak it well, but you may not meet them. Many signs and media are in German, but you can if course restrict yourself to those in English.
Many conversations, announcements, protest signs, ads, etc will be in German but you can skip them. It really is a question of how deep and rich and experience you want to have and es of course always the courtesy of making an effort! I live in Europe and I run my own business. Germany could be a great market to extend to. That, for itself, is kind of a good reason.
I also have many private reasons: I could live there too without problems. And I wanted to learn a new language, because I've always wanted to speak 5 and in the past year I managed to master quite well my fourth language, Spanish. So I figured it was time to start the fifth. And last but not least, I wanted a bit of a challenge, and I definitely think German is a challenge: I actually find German to be a beautiful language, my old relatives come from Prussia so I wanted to learn more about the culture and language, and I love how languages evolve and relatate to each other, since I speak English I find the Germanic language family to be very interesting.
I also just love languages in general, and there is something about German that attracts me to learn it. For me, it's a mix of things. I know a number of people that speak German; some are native speakers and some are heritage learners. I'd like to be able to speak with them in both English and German. Plus, my family heritage is German my last name was originally Staudenmeier, so I'm told , so it feels right to learn the old language. Actually you are pretty close!
I used to sing, well not quite Mozart operas but there was a lot of Mendelssohn involved and quite some Bach too. It made me really fond of German and I've been dreaming about learning it ever since. I've not been singing for many years now, but I never forgot my dream. Bach himself, but still pretty. You might understand all the words now, because I think they are part of the vocabulary at duolingo. When we were 11, all students at my school began learning either French or German. I hated French but luckily I was in the German group. I keep learning it because I love it harshness and all, though it can sound really smooth as well , it will be useful to me, and I love German musicals.
I also think it's more logical than many languages. I started learning German in school, and ended up with 7 years of having German as a subject. We get taught at a much slower pace than you get taught English, and very few people care at all about learning so I didn't get very good. Then I decided I wanted to learn a language for personal improvement reasons, and German would be the easiest to learn by far because I already knew a bit about how things work.
For starters, being bilingual in general is a good trait to have. What's more is that my mom was born in Germany, so she has some background on the language. Even when they moved out here to New York She was still a kid , speaking German was just something her parents did around her and to her. She's retained very little now that she's older and hasn't really been immersed in the language for decades.
Following that anecdote I can say the reason I chose to learn German over something cliche like Spanish is because, not only do I find the language and culture interesting, my mother has tried to to teach me basic words and phrases when I was a kid and I enjoy speaking the language. I also find it interesting that my native language, English is a derivative of German, which to me is just more motivation to learning it. I do plan on going to Germany at least once in my life, so I know this program won't go to waste. Jobs that I have previously applied for have required a second language, and as an engineer I feel that German would be a good one to have.
Plus I did well in school at it and so felt i had a bit of a head start The longer that I do it though, the more I think that learning it will only ever be a hobby, as I would need to immerse myself to develop it as a second language! I think it sounds beautiful myself. I take my family to a few different local Octoberfests each year, and I want to be able to understand the songs.
Some day, I want to go to Germany, and I'd like to be able to speak the language. Also, I started Duo learning Spanish, and figured German was sufficiently different that I wouldn't get mixed up, and that's been pretty much the case. Well, I chose German because even though I don't live in Germany, it's most of my heritage: My first language is Spanish and my second is English. I started learning English in third grade.
I think I kind of forgot how difficult it is learning a new language when I decided to pick up a third. I wanted to learn Dutch, but at my university, you had to take German first in order to take Dutch. I was horrible at German. I only passed with a C, and didn't bother to take it again. I was also not that much better at Dutch. It's not being offered yet, BUT they did have German. So, I figured, why not?
I'm a literature student, and once I learned English, I discovered just how much better it is to read in the original language. German is also a useful language for any European. I also find it so tricky, that surely any language Dutch, Swedish, French. My mother learnt French, and so when I was younger I would always pester her to teach me French. I'm English, and we don't start compulsory language classes until age 11, and of course I chose French. However, I soon met a friend who had taken German before transferring and told me it was much more fun.
A decade or so, I'm still learning French and am currently living in France, but I've made friends were German speakers and am still fascinated by German. I love hearing German's speaking both English and French - I think it's such a beautiful language that gets seriously misrepresented to and by English speakers.
I am of German descent on my father's side; my grandparents immigrated to Australia during the war. I have never explored much of my German heritage, but as I get older my interest in my heritage has increased. So I would love to travel to Germany and visit the myriad of cousins I have there, however I need to learn the local language first. Also, I am currently studying in natural health and I hear that Berlin is a bit of an epicentre for this type of study.
I am strongly considering studying in Berlin as part of my current degree, or continuing on with further studies there. I would love to experience living in another country, and why not pick one that has cultural and familial relevance to me? Ever since I was born, my family and I 6 members moved a lot. I am of Spanish-Peruvian background. I was born in Montreal, Canada, where my parents met. They were both immigrants from the same country coincidence! By then, the only language I spoke was English. So I struggled to learn Spanish in Peru which is a country in South America and my parents' native country , but I succeeded after two years.
Then, we moved back to where I was born: My parents were strict in general and they sent me to a french school to learn French. I struggled with that too, but luckily I spent the first year in a learning program. We stayed there the longest - 6 years - but then we moved to another province: Nova Scotia, which is in the Atlantic side of Canada. In Nova Scotia, everybody spoke English and French, so it was quite good.
But non-Canadian people were rare in this region so people were sort of discriminating. But the fact that I spoke 3 languages always made them back off haha. So to sum up, I developed a large amount of understanding through the years with languages. It really amazed me. I've always wanted to do many things, like follow a career pathology, psychiatry or biology , travel, learn musical instruments and learn languages. Other cultures always really interested me. Well, to go back to the question, I first heard about Germany when I was much younger, and the only mental images of Germany that I really had were the ones I saw in movies like Schindler's List.
Even though I only really heard about the stereotypes and world war stigmas, I still was really interested in this culture. The language did seem really rough sounding to me, it does when you hear it from a distance, but I thought it was amazing. All those words have meanings, and every language has their way of expressing emotions, and telling their own stories! Germany and its language really does spark my interest. So, besides that, I started looking into it, and the languages I already spoke honestly did help me with all the pronunciation.
The grammar is something to go through with but I won't give up for sure. Anyways, the point is that I always seemed to have an increasingly big interest in other parts of the worlds, countries and languages, the main ones being German and Italian. In life, you always have to ask yourself this question: I initially started taking German in my undergrad days because, I kid you not, it was the foreign language that let me eat lunch.
I needed a language credit, and my university offered French, German, Spanish and Japanese. I'm Canadian, so they make us take a French proficiency test before we're allowed to enroll in a French course. Since I started immersion in grade one, I knew I was going to test into a second year French literature course, which was more than I really wanted to take on for a distribution credit. I had varying reasons to be interested in each of the other three options, but what it eventually came down to was that Spanish and Japanese were scheduled at a time that meant between that and my chemistry courses, I was going to be in class or a lab the entire time the dining hall was serving lunch.
German was an hour earlier so I took that. About a year later I started to really learn that a lot of the older chemical literature is only available in German. Angewandte Chemie is actually still one of the top journals, but now there's an international edition in English. When I came across Duolingo, it made sense to continue pursuing German to make it easier to read those old papers. I have a german girlfriend and now I'm staying in Germany. I started to learn german before I came here but I think I should of studied more often. I've been here for a month now and I am really enjoying it.
I start a language course tommorow, its only two times a week but in march I am starting a more intensive course. I am looking for work however my spoken German is not so good if anyone has any ideas they would be much appreciated. The only thing I can think of re: If the "kiwi" in your user name indicates that you're not a citizen of the EU, then it's going to be tougher since to get a work visa you're going to need to either be sponsored by a company or show that you have a skill that is in short supply or non-existent in the EU work pool.
That sounds like a good idea I think I'll try that, thanks a lot.di-marketing.ru/libraries/map1.php
I'm in the same position! My fiancee is moving to Hamburg and I'm not sure what kind of job I can find without at least B1 German At least you can practice your speaking everyday with your girlfriend. I've been practicing every day at the breakfast table but now My girlfriend and I will practice at night as well, so that I can ask for more than food. I'll be studying at VHS. I'm pretty sure VHS is in Hamburg as well. Its about half price for Euro citizen too. I found Duolingo by chance, and, being fluent in Spanish with no real desire to learn Portuguese or Italian they were too similar , I decided to start learning German, with my reasoning not extending much beyong 'why not?
Always gotta be challenging myself. Let's see why german, i think the idea to learn a real difficult language attracts me. I already speak 2 languages besides my native spanish. I enjoy a lot my personal classes of german and i feel in love with german culture. Swedish and German have much in common. It feels natural, after decades of learning English, to start connecting with German.
I too am a native English speaker who studied German in high school. If I recall, my motivation for learning German back then was a love of culture - art, philosophy, and film. I wanted and still do want to to travel to Germany. Now I'm older and my motivations are a little more complex now. I stopped my studies when I went to university because the art school I went to had no language classes.
Studying German now, in my twenties, is a personal mission - I feel like I must complete what I started, and this drive pushes me forward. Beside this, the German language is a fun challenge, and I find that studying German helps me understand my native tongue more.
I don't have German ancestry, but my boyfriend is half German. His father immigrated to Canada in the 50s, and he still has family back in the old country. We're talking about traveling to Germany sometime in the near future, so best to be prepared! I want to get more in touch with my family roots. I have a German friend who I want to get closer to and also to impress.
I chose to learn german after having an experience with a german exchange student. That spring break, I learned to love german. German is also really interesting as it shows up in word roots in lots of different languages. German is often made to sound harsh in American Films and TV, probably because americans have a predisposition with history. However, german isn't necessarily as harsh a language as we Americans make it out to be. German, can also sound sweet and gentle. What are things in english that you find strange.
I'd love to know. I started learning English about thirty years ago. Later, I went to Santa Monica as an exchange student for a year like your friend and my exposure to English hasn't stopped since then. It has become difficult for me to look at English from the outside. However, American and English culture is very prominent in Germany.
Most of the songs on the radio are in English. Lots of words are borrowed from English. Even some advertisements use English if they want to sound modern, international and cool. Any little kid that hasn't had an English lesson in school, yet, will be familiar with the sound of English. I do remember hearing "Love don't kameesee to me" as a kid.
The most impressive sound is probably a heavy Texan "r". There are interesting differences in structure. I have a book on this by a translation scientist. This book is addressed to a general audience so it was not too difficult. The most striking structural difference is that German places the important information towards the end of the sentence, while English gives it to you much earlier. The very beginning of sentences in both languages is usually reserved for known old information that connects to what has been said before.
So if "1" stands for the most important information of a sentence, "2" for something less important or already known and "3" for the least important information, the placement in both languages would differ like this:. So good translations that account for this oftentimes seem to put a sentence upside down. From this information weight placement for one and, secondly, from the rigid English Subject Verb Object word order compared to the more flexible German word oder follow many more differences between these languages.
There would be lots of alternative correct translations, that stick more to the original word oder, but this one probably feels more natural. A lingot for the insight into German sentence structure that I've been trying to get to grips with! Ever since I was twelve I have been fascinated by German. The accent and the words are very satisfying to speak and hear. I'm Filipino who grew up with English and the two native tongues, so I really loved the idea of learning a new language.
My family at first wanted me to learn either Spanish or Italian because it's in our heritage however the idea doesn't really appeal to me because it sounds too much like my own native language. I don't have anything against them, though, just that German sounds really Some words are merely two or three strung together to make one long yet sensible word. And that's about it: One half of my family is German.
My mother speaks it, but my sister and I are where it has stopped. There are family of ours in Germany that don't speak English. So this was a big motivator for me to learn it. But I also think it is a culturally rich language. Germany has given us many great scientists such as Einstein , classic story-tellers now known to people all over the world such as Hans Christian Anderson edit: It's more than just the World Wars although, I must admit the idea of being able to read German material from the war in its original language is an interesting one too. Being able to experience these people's work without having to translate it, whereby some of the meaning is lost, is something I'd like to be able to do.
Hans Christian Anderson was Danish. If you're interested in seeing some of his work in the original language, I have a link to a bilingual copy of 'De Vilde Svaner' 'The Wild Swans. Danish and German are in the same family, so there'll probably be more than a few words you recognise from your study: I believe the Brothers Grimm wrote in German, and also a very interesting children's book called Der Struwwelpeter was originally in German, and is well worth a look it contains gory cautionary tales for kids, you have been warned!
I've taken a class in fairy tales, where we were taught that the Grimms' work is a type of nationalist literature, in that they sought to create a national German identity through uniting the common fairy tales and also I think through standardising the language - although I'm not sure if I'm making parts of that up!
Here's the Hans Christian Anderson story: Here's the Project Gutenberg eBook for Struwwelpeter: The German one might be a bit difficult to read because of the font - both eBooks are scans of an original as it is a picture book and the pictures play a very important role. Enjoy, and good luck with your German! The Brothers Grimm were Linguists. They are best known for collecting the folk tales, but their main interest was to study the dialects and the etymology of words and the creation of new words which German is still famous for ; They assembled a dictionary and wrote several grammar books.
I don't know whether they wanted to create some national identity with their work, but they sure did want to study the existing one. They were two brothers. One was more serious about the dictionary and one liked to work on new editions of the fairy tales, sometimes changing details and adding rhymes like "Ruckediku, Blut ist im Schuh! He would also turn an evil mother into an evil stepmother here and there to make cruel stories a little less harsh.
The original motivation as sakasiru said was to collect old German words which were well preserved in the oral tradition of fairy tales. Art fairy tales are another matter. He wrote some more gory stories that seem to be about several mental disorders.

I was introduced to Struwwelpeter by my sister who studied both art and psychology - I can't remember which discipline got her to read it though. And thanks for the link! I'm adding it to my bookmarks, hopefully I also remember to make use of it! I didn't know about the dictionaries and the grammar books, but that's really cool! Thanks very much for this comment! I'd love to give them both a read!
Thanks for the links. I decided it was time for me and the Spanish language to part and go our separate ways. French did not seem appealing coming from Spanish, and thus I ended up flipping a coin on whether to take Russian or German. Und der Rest ist in der Vergangenheit. Damit, Mathematik ist nicht so langweiling jetzt.
Es tut mir leid, mein Deutsch ist nicht so gut. Just seeing your german part of the comment made me realise something funny. The first thing almost everybody learns while learning a new language, is how to apologies for not being good at it. I can see mistakes in your sentences but im not going to attempt it today. Your German can be understood, no problem. I will give you an uncalled for correction ;.
Damit ist Mathematik jetzt nicht mehr so langweilig. Es tut mir leid, dass mein Deutsch nicht so gut ist. So I decided to go for a post-grad program in Germany public schools are comparably cheaper there. The school helped me to arrange for a rent in a house nearby for about two semesters. They told me that an old widow lives there alone and that she speaks a little English. I thought, okay, I should be doing fine with no German because she knows English. Turned out the definition of "little" was very little, like a few words!
There was a massive communication barrier between the tenant me the landlady. Even knowing that, she was still super duper nice to me. She lived there alone with two cats and I started to think the reason she accepts students was more because she was lonely and looking for another person to talk to on a daily basis. So I thought maybe one way to pay back her kindness towards me was at the very least trying to learn German so that we can talk to each other more casually.
I even played Rummikub with her friend too! I told her stories about my family or what happened in school. She talked more about her family or her past and I learned past tense from these stories too, hehe.. Haha, I still remember when I, a 2-week noob German learner, was taught about dative inflection e. I was like keep asking her why and she just said, "That's the way it is. I already have a decent English and Portuguese on top of my native Spanish and I want to keep on adding languages to my repertoire.
I have some friends in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and friends and even family members married to Germans. Despite all that's said I like how it sounds. It's good for me professionally. I want to end up knowing at least the six mayor Western European the ones I already mentioned plus French and Italian languages and I had to pick one. I had already had some exposure to it and knew some words and sentences. Italian was a close second but German just made more sense at this specific point in my life.
I may try to move to Germany next year for an internship or something of the like. I find the language very logical. There are rules and patterns everywhere and I really like that. I was learning French and German at school, but dropped French. I preferred German partly because of the pronunciation - in French I find it very confusing, whereas in German you tend to pronounce every single letter and it is much simpler.
I still learn German at school, and having visited the country a couple of times, I like the culture and hope to become fluent. That's something I find easy about the Germanic languages; how you pronounce every word individually.

Although, speakers of the Latin languages may find the speech of the Germanic family to be difficult. I didn't know what I was getting myself into! I love to learn and have been embarrassed about only speaking one language for ages. Some part of me marveled at the excellence of German engineering, and organization. I have some secret hope that learning German will make me think more efficiently, will make my music more profound. It sounds silly to say out loud, but there it is. Languages with articles result in melodies with more upbeats German with vs Latin without.
Maybe German might help you to keep your mind set on a musical phrase until the very end, because the most important information of long German sentence is always found on the very very end. I chose German because I'm going to live in Germany! That and the fact that my wife is German! It's just not easy to break the habit of speaking English together, especially when my German is so bad.
Duolingo has been really helpful so far! I am a four year Honors Latin student, but don't take another modern language. My teacher, fluent in German, approached me as I was skimming his German copy of Harry Potter, I had picked it up foreign language looked intriguing to me. He said that he though I wasn't getting enough challenge, and that I should consider learning German, as it is almost a perfect combination of English and Latin grammatically. So far that has been right, and I think because of this background I am finding it much easier to learn than some others. It is also so fun learning another language that people don't really know much about unlike French, Spanish etc!
I'm fluent in Spanish, English and French. So German always felt like the next logical language to learn. I'm almost 30 and I'm glad I started learning it instead of just keep wondering what it's like. I am a native Serbian speaker. So the question is: What is your motivation? For me it is very simple. It is about future jobs. My first forein language is English and I use it at my work.
But when i was looking for the new jobs on the internet, on many places and companies in europe it is necessary knowledge of German language. And I decided to learn German. Now,how more I learn I better like and appreciate German people and their stile. And now I want to visit Germany as soon as the conditions are created. German culture fascinates me, and it is a dominate language in many academic fields where I find myself hampered by not being able to read in German.
In another thought - all languages can be ugly to the ear. Well spoken German is as lovely as any other language. SaskiaTindra 12 10 4. I also think that Germany has a very interesting history and culture: Well, I wouldn't say no to a vacation. Especially not now during the winter: When you can read a sentence from Kant, you have truely mastered German grammar.

Anyway, I'm just beginning my journey learning German; I hope I can make it to the end. My long term goals would be to translate German or teach it as a second language.

I see already alot of stories here and figured i would attempt to add mine. If you want to learn from your mistakes, here you go: I rewrote it to sound more German. Not to address individual mistakes. Why do we not need "bleiben" as much in German as "to stay" in English? Duden has also more or less accepted it. For example The translation of sollen is should, in english the verbal weight of should is e.
I almost never have heard anyone speaking like that the simple past that is Verb final is actually my most favourite thing about german, and i know you germans love it too, always seeking crafty ways to save the entire meaning of the sentence until the very very end. Geniza 19 4 2 2. NadiaMallit 8 8 7 5. I used to dislike the harshness of the language but after hearing the German guy speak, it actually sounded quite beautiful and sexy ; Now I really want to visit Germany!!

Can you pack unnecessary things like a book our a little game that you can play why you are getting out of the snow.
Adrianna, We could pack just about anything we wanted to bring. The problem was weight. We are limited to bringing only 85 lbs. That might sound like a lot, but it really isn't when you are packing for a month or more in Antarctica. I brought an iPad that I downloaded a bunch of books. The only actual book I brought was very small.
The funny thing is, that book is called "The Mountains of Madness" and is essentially the Antarctic horror story! I also brought this computer to communicate with you and other students. However, there is VERY limited internet access so there is no surfing the internet. The main form of games here are cards and a game called Cribbage.
I appreciate you reading my journal and taking the time to say an encouraging word! I brought a few books and some headphones. I was too excited on the way down to get bored! Alexa, The hardest part was making sure that I stayed below 85 lbs of gear. It turns out that I would have packed differently now that I know what it is like. The next question asks what I would choose not to bring now that I'm here, so I'll answer that question there! I appreciate you reading my journal and taking the time to write a question! Is there anything that you wish you would have packed now that you're in Antarctica?
Is there anything extra that you packed? Audrey, yes there are! I don't know if I'm just a warm person, because lots of other people are pretty bundled up inside the buildings, but I've been comfortable without a fleece. I also brought a pair of hiking boots that I don't need. And around town my hiking shoes are fine.
