Why is teaching one to one or in small groups often better than group courses?
These types of lessons allow the teacher to work much more effectively and on a more individual level with German language learners. This particularly benefits people who want to acquire confident and correct German quickly.
Why is German considered to be a difficult language?
In the German language, you have to learn a lot of rules when you start. But after that it’s not so hard.
ICONS OF THE GERMAN LANGUAGE
“A people is not in possession of an idea if it does not have the word for it.”
“The German language is the organ among the languages.”
“The German language is more philosophical by far than the Italian; more poetical, by reason of its boldness, than the French; more favourable to the rhythm of verses than the English.”
“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.”
“A language is, as it were, the outward manifestation of the spirit of a people; their language is their spirit, their spirit their language. One cannot imagine the two identical enough.”
“Language is the house of being.”
“People who learn a foreign language with ease usually have a strong character.”
“He who knows no foreign languages knows nothing of his own.”
