365 Days of Learning German

Once upon a time (oh, about 20 years ago) I packed my bag to set off on an adventure to Germany. No real plan, just a country I had always interested in, and I wanted to hang out there for a few weeks. Well a few weeks turned into a few years in this lovely Country that has given me many lovely memories and some very precious friends. Attempts to keep up learning the German language have been very sporadic since and it is only when I go back to visit my friends there that I feel a bit ashamed that i haven't kept it up. So now here is my opportunity. In September 2017 - I will be going on vacation with a group of my German friends so lets prepare.

Language learning can be heavy duty and quite the chore especially when you are not surrounded with it in any aspect of your present daily of life, so to bring some fun into the project - I have decided to take to Youtube for help. Cue - The Lion King ! With German Subtitles. If I need to be exposed to the language,, why not in the most colorful fun way possible. No difficult grammar to wade through and great visuals to keep me interested.

I hope to replay some 5 minute clips every day 5 or 6 times until I can reel them off myself. I just need practice - I have the solid foundation - I need to apply it as I had never felt confident about actually speaking the language out loud.

I'll get into the habit of doing this every night just before sleeping. Wish me luck. I'm not sure if or how I will share it yet, lets see how it evolves.

Vielen Dank Cynthia - Ich freue mich auf mein neues Projekt
