Willkommen - This week's language of the week: German!

German is a West Germanic language that is mainly spoken in central Europe, in the countries of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg. It is also an official language in the Italian Province of South Tyrol.

It is one of the world's major languages, with approximately 95 million speakers; it is also the largest native language in the European Union. German is known for a broad variety of dialects, some of which aren't mutually intelligible with the standard.

Linguistics:

German is a West Germanic language, making it part of the bigger Indo-European language family, which also includes members such as French, Russian, and Hindi.

Language classification:

Indo-European (Proto-Indo-European) > Germanic (Proto-Germanic) > West Germanic > High German > German

Phonology:

Standard German has 14 contrastive vowels as well as three phonemic diphthongs. There are approximately 25 contrasting consonants in the language.

German [stress](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stress_(linguistics)) primarily falls on the first syllable, with exceptions occuring in loan words, nouns formed with Latinate suffixes, verbs formed with a Latinate suffix, and compound adverbs. German also contrasts betwee

Does anyone else think that German is such a beautiful language?

Mark Twain thought so too, the generalisation of the German language being harsh and rough is so misleading, whenever I tell my friends I’m learning it they say β€œwhy German?!”

After 13 months, I finally finished the Duolingo German tree! Here's my assessment of it and of how much I've learned after using it alongside Anki everyday. plus some other tips for anyone learning a language.

Warning: long read! You can skip everything and just read the last few paragraphs.

Hello everyone. I know there's some divide in the language learning community about Duolingo, with some people believing they'll become fluent after repeating "Ich esse Brot" 5 minutes a day and others saying its completely useless and boring drilling. I've been studying German for more than a year now, mainly using Duolingo, and I think I'm capable of shedding some light on the situation.

Background: I'm 23 years old. Other than my native language (Spanish) I only speak English. I had no prior knowledge of German whatsoever.

For the past 13 months I've been using Duolingo and Anki every day. I started with a 2000-words 'A1+A2' deck which then I merged with a 4k 'B1' deck. After finishing those I merged them again with a 12k B2 deck! At this moment I already have 7k 'mature' (words that I've mastered) and 3k 'young' words (words that I'm still learning). I'm yet to see the remaining 8k words.

I've used the web version of Duolingo on 'hard-mode'. That means you have to write the entire sentence down instead of just the missing word, and you can't use any word box. Duolingo used to make you to complete 60 lessons per skill, but later reduced the lesson number. I found it was harder to learn that way so I chose to keep doing 60 lessons for each skill (at least for most of them). That was hard because I had to keep track of how many lessons I'd completed so far. Most of the days I did between 4 to 16 lessons.

I used occasionally other apps like Clozemaster and Memrise, but Anki and Duolingo were the ones I used the most.

Six months ago I started to watch Netflix shows with German subs and audio (There's a fantastic app that let's you translate any language while watching Netflix at the same time, look it up). I also joined a German Whatsapp group (hallo wenn jemand das hier liest!), and try as often as possible to translate sentences to German.

So these are my results: I can understand most things written in German! I can read conversations and understand pretty much anything that is said in a casual convo. I can also read most newspaper articles and r/de threads. Granted, the level of the things I read is probably not too high. Like, I'm completely sure I wouldn't be able to read Kant lol. I watched "Queen's Gambit" "Skins", "Easy" and Star Trek Discovery" and I could understand all the dialogues and follow the plot lines pretty well (although I still have to hit pause s

How difficult is it to study in a german university with german as a second language?

Hello everyone, I have been in Germany for almost two years now and currently C1 level. Although I am quite happy that an exam can say I am fluent level in german, I feel very anxious thinking of entering german university and studying there in full german. It’s like, yes I can understand german quite well especially schriftlich, speak the language quite alright enough to converse and communicate but I feel like it will never be enough for academics. It takes time for me sometimes to recall the correct article, as it is my second language and not everything comes automatically, I mean, it has gotten better in time but still an effort. Same with grammar, which I sometimes have problems with code switching and end up using english grammar on german sentences. I know I shouldn’t really expect perfection, but I wanted to know if anyone here had studied in a german university (as a non-native german speaker) and/or tips as to what to expect in german university. I just want to have the grasp of what it’s like since I have no other contacts with people in uni.

The German word for both kite and dragon is "Drache", and in Romanian language is "zmeu". Are there any other European languages that share one word for this two meanings?

I ask this question here, as I find it interesting that two unrelated languages (German and Romanian) use one word for the same two unrelated things (kite and dragon). Moreover these two words (Drache and zmeu) are also not related, as one has its origins in Latin (Draco) and the other one has its origins in the Slavic languages (zmij).

Edit: I did not expect this question to get such "traction" and I certainly did not expect to have so many different languages to have the same words for kite and dragon. I think though that u/nirocalden is right, the two words are not totally unrelated. According to Wikipedia: "Stories of kites were first brought to Europe by Marco Polo towards the end of the 13th century, and kites were brought back by sailors fromΒ JapanΒ andΒ MalaysiaΒ in the 16th and 17th centuries.[23][24]Β Konrad KyeserΒ describedΒ dragon kitesΒ inΒ BellifortisΒ about 1400 AD."

Do you know of any (non-Amish) communities where German is spoken or is a common secondary language?

I'm interested in the German language and am curious to see if there's any communities in America where it's not uncommon to hear it.

I'm aware that Fredericksburg, Texas used to have quite a few Texas German speakers, but that they have thinned out substantially over the years.

I know German isn't nearly as common a second language as Spanish, but do you know of anywhere a person might hear it being spoken in public?

(I say non-Amish because they speak a very different kind of German and keep mostly to themselves)

Language barriers in a German restaurant

Ok so I was in Germany with my boyfriend and we just finished a Berlin tour and decided to get lunch. We found a cute restaurant and sat down to order our food. The staff at this restaurant had a kinda toned down bavarian theme outfit (like dungarees). Anyway, on this day I was wearing a cute black dungaree dress.

So I got up to go to the toilet, which was inside.

(Most people were sat outside as it was such a hot day so there was only staff inside)

Anyway, on my way back to the table, a group of boys were entering the restaurant, I stepped aside to let them in and instead they looked at me and said something in German.

I just kinda looked at them and said "I'm sorry?"

They then spoke again (in English this time) and requested a table.

I apologized and said quickly I didn't work there before kinda trying to shimmy passed them (they were blocking the doorway).

Anyway, they then started saying something to eachother in German and looked back at me.

They asked again for a table, so I apologised again and explained I didn't work there and then kinda managed to slip passed them and return to my table.

They ended up sat a two tables away from us.

How I passed the C1/C2 exams in three languages: English, Finnish, and German

A few people have wanted me to share how I reached a certified C1+ level in three languages. Unfortunately for me, this is not the story about how I, using great methods and well thought out language hacking plans, quickly mastered three languages. Hopefully some of you might still find it useful to see a perhaps more realistic example of somebody trying and failing for decades, but still persisting and somehow succeeding in the end.

The exam

I took the Finnish YKI-exam in all three languages and this link should lead to a copy of my certificates as well as the CEFR conversion sheet that was included with the certificate: https://m.imgur.com/a/6xxk1vv In case someone has trouble viewing the file, I achieved a C2 in Finnish and German listening comprehension, English speaking, and English and German reading comprehension. The rest of the skills, including writing in all three languages, were at a C1 level.

How I learned German

I was born in Germany and lived there during the first few years of my life, exposing me to the sound of the language from an early age, but I had not yet started speaking German when my family decided to move to Finland. For some years, the only exposure I had to German was the occasional movie. My dad went on business trips to Germany quite often and used to bring home German VHS tapes and I grew up thinking that Disney movies were all originally in German. It's difficult to say how much I actually understood of those movies, but I at least learned the valuable lesson that many children will happily watch movies in foreign languages. At some point, my parents placed me in an evening German class for children (maybe around the age of eleven?) for perhaps a year, but the only thing I remember from that class is the word for turtle, which I sadly have not had much use for yet.

When I was fourteen, I chose to sign up for German classes at school and I continued taking classes for five years. The previous exposure I had had to German definitely helped because German was easier for me than it was for my peers and I ended up graduating with the highest possible grade (Laudatur for those familiar with the Finnish education system). I foolishly thought I spoke German, but was rapidly brought back to Earth when I decided to take part in an exchange program (Erasmus) to Germany. I quickly realized that despite my good foundation and good grades, I still could not keep a conversation going in German

Germans and Austrians: can you live a good life in your zone without ever speaking standard German and only speaking your language or dialect?

For example, could you live a socioeconomically good life only speaking Badisch in Freiburg? What about Plattdeutsch in Hamburg?

Let's say you can read and write in standard German due to school but you refuse to speak anything other than 1) recognised languages e.g. North Frisian, Sorbian, Plattdeutsch, Slovene 2) or Germanic varieties called dialects.

How easy or hard would it be?

Offering: French πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Seeking: English, Italian, German, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean or any other language

17 years old man from France.

Learning a new language it's not just about memorizing words and reading grammar books, it's a living experience. I find that the discovery of another culture and the opportunity to speak with new people make learning a language one of the best experiences there is.

I'm tired of spending hours alone in my 9mΒ² student room without seeing anyone (thanks to pandemic). So I'd like to find people (and maybe friends) to talk about anything and at the same time, improve my language skills. I will be very happy to help anyone who wants to learn French or discover the French culture.

I'm currently studying French and European history at the University of Strasbourg.

Of course I love learning languages but I also like many other things like politics, mathematics, art, music, watching series/movies/anime, books, gaming and eating (I really love that).

My language levels :

English B1/B2 (Intermediate) ; Italian B1 ; German A2 ; others languages : beginner. I am also fluent in classical latin (yes, really)

Sorry if I did any mistake, as you see i only have an intermediate level in English.

Don't hesitate to DM me !

Edit: Wow ! I didn't think that so many people would answer me, thank you all !

Hello lovely people. I am about to be a grad student in physics and working as a programmer. I can draw, make chocolate, farm, write plays and stories. I try to keep an encyclopedic knowledge about everything, and I aspire to be a polymath like Galileo. I am shy and reserved often but can go all extrovert in comfortable situations. I tend to absorb people like a sponge. It is a strange world, and I try to learn as much as possible about what makes everyone wake up in the morning. I learn languages for travel and understand new cultures, and I am overwhelmed by everything in my life now. I feel like this pandemic has cut my social interactions to a level I never anticipated. Secluded from the mainstream, I am looking for a language buddy to keep my English at a conversational level. I have read everything from LOTR to Harry Potter. We could talk for a few minutes every day about anything interesting for the love of languages.
