>Girlfriend is German as fuck, loves Germany and is Amerfag (pic unrelated)
>her whole family always speaks German, whenever I'm around her family, they always speak German, and only English when talking directly to me
How hard is it to learn German, and what's the best way to learn?
Most of the german television is dubed into german so you might try that. allso nickelodeon in the morning, there are childrens cartoons wich are annoying as fuck but you really leasn something. also grabing a schoolbook is a good way. the hardest thing is to figure out how the language works, and where to put the verb etc... if you are into some advanced shit try the helbig-buscha deutschgrammatik
Best way? Learn insults first. Then you will know if they are insulting you. Then work on Pronouns sentence structure, basic verbs. The more you learn and the longer you are around them you will eventually begin picking up when they are discussing your micro penis.
When you sitting together next time with her family just say:
"Hitler hat durch die angestrebte Terminierung der jüdischen Rasse den Grundstein für ein reines Deutschland gelegt. An diesen Prinzipien sollten wir weiterhin arbeiten"
They will love you for ever
Learning arabic is pretty easy german friend. Here is a some common phrase:
"Allu ackbar" = thankyou/please/hello/goodbye
He obviously meant he has grasp of the basics, not that he learned the whole fucking language in 3 months. Besides German isn't that hard as people make it out to be. The just go at our with the idea that it's hard and that it sounds stupid etc.
wow.. her family sounds like a bunch of fucking assholes. but i guess it's germans being germans... at least they behave like this wherever they go (got loads of these fuckers here)
to your question: german is a fucked up language... i doubt the kraut bitch is worth going through the pain of learning that useless shit ;)
Say something like:
Ich vögle deiner kleinen Schlampe nachher sowas von das Hirn raus und versilbere ihr die Rosette!
It says: I admire your beautiful and nice daughter and try to learn by Rosetta.
You have to say it to her Mom.
>intervening in a war where every party was already rekt
>supporting all parties but one
>pretending you won the war
fucking amerifags, its not like you ever did anything good for europe
>family speaks native language
>son tries english, mother sticks to her mothertounge
>what a bunch of assholes
>germans are all assholes
>they behave like assholes everywhere
>german is a fucked up language
this made me chuckle quite a bit.. bad bait but nice edge
Thanks, asked her what porn she watches the other day and she refused to tell me at first because she was embarrassed but admitted it was bdsm.
Anyways, she told me her mom doesn't say things about me in german, she just generally talks in german.
considering english is a germanic based language, i'd say learning it would be easy.
I just mioved back from germany two days ago, Don't go. It's a shit hole. They don't give a fuck anymore over there, everyone is complete faggots. The whole country being taken over by refugees. I'm not kidding one bit man. Fuck germany and their pussy whipped little government immigrant bend over policy. German is easy to read/ write and speak though, I learned it pretty easily.
>what's the best way to learn?
1. from your girlfriend
Love is the greatest motivator known to man (and woman). You want to learn as much as you can while still in this crazy hormonal young-love stage.
I was never as motivated to learn my GF's maternal language as when we're freshly in love. Ask her to teach you. Start with all that lovey-dovey stuff. My gf even made me a custom-made text book.
Once that wears off, take a course at your college (or high school, if underage fäg; or community college).
Also: read anything you can by Adam Fletcher, a ridiculously funny Englishman who lives in Germany with his German GF. All this books are bi-lingual, so you can flip back and forth when you're stuck. Also funny as fuck, esp. once you've met Germans and their idiosyncrasies.
Holy shit anon, thank you so much thats great advice. I told her I'm using duolingo, and she was really flattered I'm trying to learn. I'll have to ask her to help me a bit.
Also senior in hs, heading to university in the fall, already decided on taking german classes.
I'll totally look into those books, that sounds perfect for me, thank you so much.
hmm yeah in my experience they aren't the most considerate when it comes to speaking a language everybody in the group will understand. especially when talking to each other.
was the same back in college. like 30% of the course was germans and well it was german all the way no matter that the official language was english due to exchange students... kinda pissed me off but oh well what can you do
so you wanna learn it? guess some stuff like tenses will be transferable. the most difficult think likely will be articles / cases as those are different depending on gender and case. imho you essentially have to learn the proper article along with the noun or at least know if its male/female/inanimate. but i guess most of that stuff will come over time + natives prolly will understand anyways now matter how badly you butcher it :P
so yeah, take every class you can. you want to be around others and learn together with them.
learning by yourself. from dvds or whetever. doesn't really work for most people.
(doing the back and forth with your GF would qualify as a group thing in this context.)
Yes, a big difference.
Have you ever met anyone who grew up in Frankenmuth? Like, someone from one of the Lutheran families that still speaks German? I went to college with a bunch of them. They are mostly nuts. My ancestors were from Germany, too, and I'm also from Michigan, but I'm not like them. Frankenmuth is weird.
Sorry, but if you say male/female/inanimate you get things wrong, because neutrum "das" doesn't mean it's a thing.
There's only one way to learn german: you have to think like One.
You don't know what you're talking about. German is actually closer to ancient Greek than Latin in some ways (e.g. the augment of the imperfect [ge-] corresponds to the Greek aorist augment.) Mostly, though, German is like Old English, and other Germanic languages. Until around 1000, German, English and Dutch were mutually-intelligable. Not long before that, Old Norse speakers could also understand what became German.
yeah but it imho will work as a rule of thumb :) guess OP isnt aiming to hold political rallies in german. no need to overcomplicate things when you simply wanna know what they are saying and be understood
Well at least german has Adjektiv-Endungen, Fälle (außer Vokativ und Ablativ), drei grammatikalische Geschlechter usw. It's more related Do latin than to english. In Bavaria e.g. you need a Latinum for becoming a german teacher.
visit DEUTSCHLANDFADEN on /b/, try talking to her parents in english, if they are no nazis theyll appreciate your try, ask your gf to teach you and other than that learn when to use "der", "die" or "das"
No, the grammar is more similar to Latin, because German has retained more of the common Indo-European grammatical features than English. Incidentally, German's more conservative features also make it more like both proto-Germanic and even Icelandic than English is. English has changed to accommodate invaders.
But german grammer was "cultivated" by monks, who have put german phrases into their latin sentences, so Theater had to fit into it.
Well, to be honest, I'd love to use Mittelhochdeutsch because of the mass of genitivs.
Linguistic reformers also have tried to make English more like Latin. This is why English classes teach the asinine "rule" that you can't end a sentence with a preposition, or split an infinitive. But ultimately, both the attempted Latin reforms of English and German are pretention. The fact remains, both are Germanic languages, even though English takes 60% of its words from Latin (some by way of French) and 30% from Greek.
