How I'm learning German

German has a reputation for being a very difficult language. Personally I have not had too many problems while learning German grammar. My biggest problem is - still - how to increase my vocabulary. To really learn the words and to use them effectively you have to use them and to use them, you must already know them... a vicious circle which it's very difficult to escape from. At least for me.

I have also noticed that, if on a particular occasion someone tells me a word I don't know yet and this word is perfect for describing the situation itself, I can learn it easily. So today I learned a new word in German: Spinner. It can mean 'stupid, idiot, nutcase' and I guess I will remember it for a very long time.

ps. Thanks, Keegan!
