Benefits of learning German

It’s argued that German is one of the most powerful languages in the world since so many of its native speakers are important academics, Nobel Prize winners, poets and thinkers - especially from Germany - Das Land der Dichter und Denker!

With many words and pronunciation rules being so close to English, German is one of the easiest languages to pick up and become fluent in. German has over 130 million speakers across the globe, with no less than 42 countries who have people using German as their mother tongue! German is the official language of Germany, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein.

Becoming fluent in a second language, especially a popular one like German, instantly opens up a new world of opportunities in your career, with exciting job prospects such as being a translator, interpreter - and even being able to work in any field or with any number of clients who happen to speak the languages you speak!

I learned more Spanish in one short cartoon than I did with months of Duolingo, and I just started! I can't wait to learn more.

How to learn German with TV in 8 easy steps

These 8 simple steps will elevate your German learning experience and give you better, faster results:

Try to find a show that you find engaging and entertaining. Learning German through TV is much more effective if you are engaged and immersed in the content.

Watch a little bit of German TV every day, even if it’s just for a couple of minutes. It’s only possible to become fluent if you establish new learning habits on a daily basis.

Get a good understanding of Lingopie’s amazing language learning tools. It will be very helpful for your German learning if you know how to repeat, pause and listen to words again and save them to your personal flashcards.

Repeat the dialogue you’ve just heard out loud. If it was too fast, you can use our tool which reads it back to you slowly. Don’t be passive in your learning; make sure you comprehend the content. This is a must when wanting to learn German as effectively as possible.

Make notes and write down any German vocabulary that you find important or useful. Writing down words and phrases will significantly increase your ability to remember them. Lingopie saves the words you click on, but hand-writing them will make you remember it even better!

Retell the plot of the show or the movie out loud - to yourself or to someone who understands the German language. Even speaking in front of the mirror will help you! Speaking out loud is an important exercise to establish the contents you’ve downloaded into your brain.

Once you are a little more advanced and feeling confident, you can turn off the supporting English subtitles and just leave up the German ones. This ensures that you count solely on your own understanding without a helping hand. But don’t worry if you’re struggling because you can still click the words on the German subs and see the translation displayed!

Don’t stop practising. Learning a language is like playing an instrument; you can never be too good at it and you can never be ‘finished’. So don’t stop revising, learning and listening!
