I have been living here for almost 5 months but I still cannot interact with people. I only know few german words from the CD my friend gave me. I am still having difficulty understanding their language. What is the advice you can give in order for me to learn faster than the usual. If I cannot learn the language in a short time, I also cannot get a good job. People here does not talk to you in english. They prefer to talk in their language which is normal. But I am really willing to learn the language only I do not know what is the best way. There are times that the words I learned is forgotten. How to improve my learning skills. Thank you for all the help. Or if there is anybody here who speak german or who is willing to do language exchange online. I am willing to participate. Thank you in advance. Best Regards, Jeff

Hey, Jeff! My brother study in Germany, Munich. I think german language is wonderful... of course it's little bit hard to learn it. I'm learning it too. Best help of course is my brother - he sometimes speaks with me on german, and fix my mistakes. So , there is no doubt, best way to learn it faster - it's communicate. Find some friends, maybe friends who also comes from other lands, and speak, speak ,speak! My brother did that, and now he speaks brilliant ... Germans just can't recognize that he isn't German, you know. You can try to read some german books or magazines, than if you don't understand some words, take a dictionary on online dictionary and check translation and pronunciation too! This will 100% help you with language! If you want, I'm always ready for some experience, so add me to your friends and we can communicate by messages on german language! Hope, my response will help you! Have a nice day! ''Gl├╝ckliches'' myLotting ;)
