Confusing articles, mixed up numbers, complicated vocab: The German language can be hard going sometimes. Meet the Germans host Rachel Stewart knows this all too well – so she’s come up with some of her favorite German language hacks to offer a helping hand to her fellow German-learners.

Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life.

  1. lord have mercy,,,, you nailed it. You know how many tortured classes I have taken and NOONE TELLS YOU HOW TO FIGRE THE F OUT OF DER DIE DAS!

  2. During WW1 japanese learn German and brought it back to Japan. My grandma used to say ah so. It's あ〜そう、あ〜そうですね、the meaning is the same. So when I went to Germany for the first time, stayed at my friends flat and she invited her sister to dine all together, they talked in German but I understood ah so, and I was really surprised that the meaning is same as Japanese, but unfortunately the younger generation don't use this often anymore.other German turned japanese daily words are; albeitアルバイト for temporary work, Meisterマイスター,hausハウス,ビアーガーデンbiergarten! There's more…..

  3. Rachel! this was so helpful. You stopped showing up in my feed for a long time (what's up with that You Tube??), but now I'm binging new stuff and revisiting old stuff. Love this channel!

  4. i am german, and the leaving spaces inbetween numbers part made my head explode. how have i never thought of this… i hate it when people go fünf, sieben, dreiundvierzig…

  5. I’ve been living in Germany for 5 years and it was quite easy to learn the basics. It’s the grammar that I still haven’t got quite right…

  6. To all those trying to learn german, here I have a totally correct german sentence, have fun translating:
    "She werden gegen den Baum gefahren worden sein."

  7. Servus from Thailand!
    I and my classmates used Sie or Siezen instead of Du or duzen when we speak and debate in our class.
    One day, our Deutschkursleiter from Germany wondered why we were so polite to each other, so he asked.
    And we answered "Mit Sie oder siezen muessen wir die Verben nicht verändern."

  8. i think something i struggle with is when a sentence has multiple verbs (ie. I'm going to London tomorrow to buy a book) the second (inf.) verb is put at the END of the sentence.
    "ich kann morgen das buch in London…."
    if you miss that last verb, WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN LONDON WITH A BOOK. Throwing it into the Thames? Selling it? Borrowing it? Who knows.
    It's also hard because trying to work out what is being said without that second verb is a big guessing game XDD
