What is the best way to get started in this dive?

First, to get started, get started RIGHT. Make sure you learn the correct conjugations and genders from the start. Pay attention to sentence structure, and always remember the exceptions. For example, in German, an important thing to remember is that nouns come in different forms based on whether they’re accusative, dative, genitive, or nominative.

Second, make sure you focus on your pronunciation. If you don't, you will get off on the wrong foot with terrible habits.

Third, practice it wherever you go. Ideally, work with a live teacher every week, so you can actually practice real conversations.

As you continue, ask EVERYONE you know (who knows German) to correct your German. Always. It’s the quickest way to improve—via instant correction.

Finally, put together a solid study plan and schedule, using the many resources we have assembled for you on the pages to come.
