Well, for this post, this is purely my sharing about the way I learn German. Yeah, of course, learning another language is difficult. I thought it so at the first place. I started learning German almost a year ago. However, I was really really bad at it until I found a new way to get used to German in my daily life. I was kind of like being forced to learn German and as you can guess, my studying was not really worth it. I can’t talk to foreigners even though my grammar was not that bad but everything about my German speaking was nearly 0. When I got into another class, I saw that, there were lots of people, who started to learn German later than I did but they somehow, much better than me. I started question myself: Why? How?. And I found my answers. I can’t learn through books. I feel very uncomfortable when sitting in class, write down anything that I’m asked to do and I was not able to absorb knowledge in that way.
In my struggling time to find my way to learn, suddenly, one day, out of the blue, my friends said: “Oh my god, you should see this film (Extr@), they are very funny” and I watched. It hit me that, I can learn from here. I learn so much jokes, grammars, idioms than I have ever learnt from my classes. It comes to me that, I learn through films, music, funny things that can trick my brain that: Hey you are not learning, you are having fun. I begin to watch as many films as I can in my free time, and I note down anything I consider that important in really life not at school. Schools and classes don’t teach you how to joke in German, they don’t teach you how to play word, slang, but movies do.
In time, my communication skills in German are improved, and now I’m able to talk to foreigners… In general, everything about my German has become better since I found my way to learn German. So my advice to you, don’t worry if you are bad at German, you are bad because you haven’t found your method to learn yet. With a proper method, your German will be enhanced quickly.
P.s: If you find any grammar or spelling mistakes, please comment below so that I can learn from my mistake. Many thanks.
