    Hello people,

    So I want to start learning German but I can't find a good tutorial online, does anyone have a link or a video to a good German language class?

    Find something online about German grammar and start from there. It helps if you're good with linguistics. Then get a basic vocabulary, and then start reading/listening/watching.

    I have never seen a show except this one that manages to make the German highway a dangerous place.

    Hey, good to hear that you are trying to learn a different language - german is apparently a quite tricky one to learn (i am a native and find myself struggling from time to time myself ). though you know what? what had always helped me best with learning a new language was actually spending time in the given country. you may not be able to speak much at first, if anything, however just soaking up the culture, learning from the people, and hearing the language every day, helps tons - your brain adjusts quicker than you think.

    i spent a while in france last summer - for the same reason - at first i was struggling to communicate with anyone. and knowing the french, most didnt appreciate me speaking english to them, so i spent days just saying je ne suis pas? though by the end of my trip, i literally could pick out sentences, and make sense of certain things people said. so it is possible.

    and if you dont wanna travel, then just make use of our german community in the forum. (that is, obviously aside of your ther routine of learning grammer through a book or online guide) you could, if you find it helpful, just read a bit into some conversations in the german speaking sections. you will find just reading and seeing the different language can aid your learning of the language. though alot of dedication is needed

    anyways, good luck mate

    As a native German speaker I can not fully comprehend the difficulties of the german laguage, because you just learn it while you are growing up, but I am partially teaching German in China to students who already have reached a basic level.

    I can just give you one tip. Don't try it on your own, when you start. It's really hard to learn a language without any basis, and it is especially hard to maintain your motivation (if it's not for a future job or necessary for something else). You have to learn a lot of vocabulary and you have to remember at least basic Grammar. The good news is, that German is not that different from English and you have some similarities. So it could be much more difficult.

    Try to participate in an introduction course for German language; maybe you have some possibilities at the university of your hometown or try to find some kind of learning partners who learn with you. But I highly recommend a teacher to teach you at least the basics. After that it should be easy to read german texts and by time you will get the more complex grammar. The most important thing is, that you understand at least the words.

    Thank you for the tips, I will try to watch german movies, tv shows etc. and even go to Germany a little bit, and hire a teacher. People ask me why do I want to learn German, for me German is really cool, its hard to learn but I will give my best.

    You can cite more than one post at once, if you click on the small plus beside the post numbers in the top-right corner.

    As far as German TV goes … I don't really like it and german tv is not that good as for example american tv-shows. I guess it's because of the low budget or whatever. Usually they just show american shows with German dub and I don't know any 'legal' websites, where you can watch them.

    But you can find some more or less good programs at the websites of every TV-channel. For example:
    http://videos.arte.tv/de/videos (which is one of the few good channels - in cooperation with french tv, but every show you find on that website is german)

    I guess if you don't understand any German at all, it is a little bit pointless to watch german tv-shows right now, but just for future reference.

    It's btw allways nice to hear, that somebody wants to learn German.

    It would seem that you have caught the attention of The Bananus Tree, who is willing to part some of his exceptional knowledge of German with you. Consider yourself highly privileged. Read the information. Understand the information. Accept the information as a new part of you

    The information doesn't make any sense at all. At least not in German.

    That's because you have only read it from a phonological point of view

    To understand its meaning you must unlock level 3 s-selectional derivatives, and then derive the derivatives and obtain clear constituent partitions without having applied affix-hopping rules.

    Precisely. And you may only get those competences if you are willing to embrace the greatest linguist in the world that is The Bananus Tree

    I wish traveling around was free. That's the best method for learning a language as far as I'm concerned.
    I'd have gone to Germany if there wasn't this tedious law regarding University studends and working hours. It's so limited... too bad I don't have any friends or relatives I could stay with.

    what law is that then? ive never heared of that before
    surely, as a student, you could apply to a german university and thus avoid any sorts of work-restrictions?
