Why German is easy discusses the core aspect of how I managed to hack German grammar and vocabulary in just three months.
I am very much against the idea of languages being “hard”. This concept alone and believing in it is the barrier that holds so many people back from making any progress. It is also the reason that I didn’t do well in German in school. It was just too “hard” for me and I barely even passed my end of high-school exam in German.
Despite that, in just three months of a second attempt I passed the majority of the German C2 exam from the Goethe Institut; one of the most challenging language exams in the world for non-natives. The main reason I was able to make such fast progress in German this second time round is because I was extremely optimistic and would only ever see how easy German was.
Yes, German has cases and three genders and strange words and irregular plurals and a weird word order… and many other things that make it “hard”, but I analysed each one of these and reframed them to make them easy. This guide is that re-framing and in-depth explanation for many of what beginner to intermediate learners of German consider the “hardest” parts. After reading this guide, German will seem way easier! With this new attitude, you’ll be speaking it in no time
If you are currently struggling with German or wish you were making faster progress, this guide will be for you!
