Principles for Effective German Language Learning
You must have a SMART goal: set a Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely goal. This approach is wise to achieve anything in life, including acquiring a second language like German.
Speak from the first day you begin learning German. Most people postpone speaking until they are ready. This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make while learning a second language. You need to practice speaking from day one. Learning a new language is like going to a gym: if you want to build muscles, you have to exercise daily. Doing anything other than that is just procrastination. Look for friends who speak German or are learning and tell them you want to practice with them. By doing this, rest assured you will learn how to speak German in no time.
Focus on basic vocabulary at the movies! One of the most impressive facts about German is that only 100 of the most commonly spoken words in German movies account for about 50 percent of all spoken terms. In other words, in a German film, every other word you hear is a word from the top 100 list. You need to know those terms, and to know them, you have to watch German films frequently.
Immerse yourself in activities that will help you learn German language. Learn some song lyrics in German. Listen to German music and try singing while you record yourself.
Keep track of your progress and be consistent.
German is one of the official languages in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Together with English, Dutch and Frisian, German belongs to the West Germanic group of the Indo-European language family.
The documented origin of Germanic languages starts with their speakers’ first encounter with Romans back in the first century BCE. There existed only one Germanic language with some minor dialect differences at that time. It was only after the 6 th Century CE that people started talking about the 'German' (High German) language. German is now one of the main cultural languages in the Western world and is studied as a foreign language worldwide.
Basic German Languages
Written German is quite uniform even though it does differ in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Spoken German, however, exists in many dialects. Most of these dialects belong to either High German or Low German dialectal groups. The sound system (especially in the consonants) is what differentiates the High German from the Low. The official written German language is the High German which belongs to the southern highlands of Germany. The German dialects are further discussed below.
High German (Hochdeustch)
Old High German: It was spoken by people from the southern highlands of Germany until about 1100 CE. There was no standard literary language for this group of dialects.
Middle High German: Spoken after 1100 CE. It was during this era that a standard language began to arise in the southern part of Germany. It was based on the Upper German dialects (Alemannic and Bavarian). This was the language of an extensive literature and includes the early epic of the 13 th Century Nibelungenlied.
Modern High Standard Language: It is spoken in the central and southern part of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It is based on the Middle German dialect used by Martin Luther King to translate the Bible back in the 16 th Century. The latter group of this dialect includes Austro- Bavarian, Alemannic (Swiss German) and High Franconian. Modern High Standard language is used in Low German speech regions as administrative, literature, higher education and media language.
Low German (Niederdeustch, or Plattdeustch)
It is spoken in the northern lowlands of Germany. Low German does not have any modern literary standard or administrative language. It was developed from Old Saxon and Middle Low German of the Hanseatic League citizens.
Other Major Dialects
Alemannic: There is a slight difference in its grammar and sound system compared to the standard High German. This dialect is spoken in the Alsace region of France, Switzerland, Swabia, western Austria and Liechtenstein.
Yiddish: Developed from High German and spoken by Ashkenazi Jews.
