Why is German so difficult to learn?
If you decide to learn German, you will need a little stamina, because German is one of the more difficult languages. In addition to articles, which are usually a great challenge for learners of German, composites, i.e. long compound words, such as Kaffeetassenproduktion or Morgengrauen, are not necessarily easy to learn. For foreigners, German words often sound quite similar. Differentiating the vocabulary therefore takes some practice. As already mentioned, the German articles and their correct form are a topic in themselves. In total, 16 different equivalents are possible for the English “the”, depending on the genus and case. This brings us to the four German cases, which also require different forms of the article and partly of the noun. Not to forget the verbs, it should be mentioned at this point that they do not make it too easy for the learner either: Verbs can be split, combined with other syllables and rearranged in the sentence.
Nevertheless, you will be proud of yourself if you have overcome these hurdles. Whether for your job – Germany is the second largest exporting country in the world and German is the second most important language in science – or your private life: the effort will pay off in any case.
