How to Learn German online
Before your start signing up for an expensive German course or investing in textbooks take your time to review
the tips and resources on this site. They were conducted with special care and many weeks of hard work. The tips
and recommendations on this site are specifically compiled for an English speaking individual who
wants to learn German.
The problem with most sites on the net that deal with this topic is that they are in German. While this might be
useful for the advanced student it is not appropriate for someone who is just starting out.
If you want to get started quickly you don't have to spend a great deal of money. Many resources are free. You
just have to find them. Learn German Links is intended for the beginner who wants to look for free information on
learning the German language. While there are also links included to German language schools as well as advanced
software products I would suggest you start with the free stuff and then once you have gotten an impression move on
to the professional products. The range of products is huge and many times people end up paying too much for the
same information that they could have had much cheaper or for free. The tutorials and exercises I recommend
are the ones that were found to be appropriate for beginners. All of them - except for the software - were reviewed
by a native German speaker.
We have excluded material that is of sole academic nature. Learn German Links focuses on material for speaking
contemporary German. We are carefully selecting sites that offer true value to the user. We try to avoid sites that
seem to be polluted with advertisement or only contain products with no additional information.
