Learning German 🇩🇪 I’m struggling 

I don’t know if you realize by now that I’m living in the German side of Switzerland 🇨🇭. I’ve been studying Suisse German and I’ve been struggling a little bit with it.

I’m trying all the tricks everyone has been saying to me, but the struggle is real.

  • Watching Disney movies that I know by heart in German
  • Trying to learn 3 different words every single day
  • Watching German and Suisse TV shows (with German subtitles)
  • Reading my book as many times as I possibly can ( a few pages everyday)
  • Listening to German music

Do you have any cool trick that will help me?

So far I know portuguese obviously, Spanish, French, I can understand Italian perfectly and Spanish. I never had to study so hard to learn something in my life.

  1. I just started learning German literally a week ago and I am learning from YouTube lessons (which are free and really good), using language apps and listening to German music. What are some good German shows you watch?

  2. I think learning new words every day is good. It’s just practice, practice and practice. I have been learning Mandarin for nearly ten years. Still find it difficult. But if you have a passion for the language I think it’s easier.

  3. Some say if there’s a will there’s a way and I thought that was my motto too until I studied the German language way back in New Zealand (my hometown) in preparation to converse with my hubby’s families in Zurich & Bern. I agree with you.. seems hard haha! So, in short, I lost it now that I am living in another Country with the family. Guess I’ll try the good old Youtube as one of my classmates did back then.

  4. I took four years of German in high school and I thought it was a bit challenging lol. What helped me was the word order, I forgot it already, I think it SVO, but it helped a lot to learn the structure first since sometimes it’s different than English and Spanish.

  5. I understand. I have been learning German in school. I also use Duolingo app and YouTube channels. I watch learn German with Ania on YouTube. All of these things have been helping. Most importantly I need to start speaking more.
