So, you’ve heard all about the GAPP exchange, read a testimonial from a former GAPPer, you’ve seen some pictures and videos of Germany, heard an audio file of the German language, and maybe you even took the poll of which German city to visit. What’s next??
Well….how about learning a bit of the language yourself?
It’s really not that difficult, I swear! As more and more user-friendly tutorials become available for free online, learning languages is ever-more accessible. In fact, one of my favorite places for absolute beginners of German to start is “Learn German with Ania” on YouTube. Ania is a native German who gives lively German lessons using English as the basis for explanation. She offers 50 free lessons that progress in novice-level difficulty, so nothing will ever become too complex. The beauty of Ania’s videos is that you have personalized lessons delivered whenever you want them, and you can go at your own pace! Before you know it, you’ll be able to have your own Konversation auf Deutsch!
So sit back, relax, and get ready for Lesson 1: Basic Greetings in German
