This makes it so easy to learn whenever I have a few minutes.I love that the program requires you to write in the language, as well as just read and translate. When I give a wrong answer, only the correct answer is given, not the explanation of why the words are used (i.e.I'm taking French so I need to make sure I remember the stuff that I learn and Duolingo is an amazing way to go back and review the stuff you have learned. I only wish they made it more like the website; the lingot store, the discussion under every "prompt", and the microphone system. I like the way it doesn't lecture you on the words, or tell you to say the word 50 times.
So only date a German if you can keep up with her or if you don’t mind explaining to your friends that she can drink you under the table!
It also switches between typing, speaking and clicking on the right word, and changes from your native language to the one you're learning so you get used to translating both ways. So far, this app is good for an introduction to a new language, with some minimal coaching for pronunciation.
Requires umlauts (German), enyes (Spanish), etc..it is a good idea to have your shortcut keys down.
Croissants, rolls or bread with cheese and sausage, jam or Nutella for breakfast, bread as a side for lunch or in the form of dumplings, and bread with sausage or cheese for dinner will become the norm for you.
Top that off with meat, potatoes and creamy sauces for lunch as well, cake or Danishes in the afternoon, and a (few) glasses of beer. Uhm, sorry, the only things close to vegetables in a German diet are a side salad or Sauerkraut.
