November 9th, 2011 · No Comments · Learning German

Almost every day, I am diligently spending time using the Rosetta Stone language training software, slowly improving my German skills. My vocabulary and understanding of grammar and verb tenses are definitely increasing. The software is rather methodical, which makes it very effective, but sometimes it can feel a little tedious matching sentences and pictures together over and over again.

But every now and then it can get interesting, like this example, where this young woman tells me she’s picked the red shoes:

Freut mich!

Pictures like that are much more memorable for me than the pictures of kids eating pie. I’m hoping this theme will be explored further in future lessons. It would be useful to learn what “Passen diese Schuhe zu meinen Strümpfen und Straps?” means, for instance.

You never know when you’ll need it.
