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.
#2 Focus on German syntax, i.e. where to place words in a German sentence, to avoid some of the most common mistakes foreigners make in the language. You will find some additional help here:
#3 Spend enough time learning and practicing the four cases and their function in a sentence.
#4 With a solid understanding of the cases, you should then turn to pronouns, prepositions and adjective endings to learn how they influence the usage of the cases.
#5 increase your vocabulary by using flash cards/index cards in the way I describe below.
