Top 5 tips on how to improve your German

Many people ask me for advice on how to quickly improve their German. Here are my top 5 tips on how to improve your German language skills:


#1 Learn to conjugate regular, irregular, separable verbs and reflexive verbs by looking at logical patterns that apply to them before you commit them to memory.
