The question how to learn a language the easiest way is discussed widely. Thinking about the practical part of it, the answer is quite easy.

  If sen want to learn a language sen need to do three things.
Get used to the sound of the language
Learn vocabulary (as boring as it might sound)
Study the grammar of this language

  Sound of the language:
How fast sen can get used to the sound of a language, depends on the difference between senin mother tongue ve the language sen are about to learn. French find it easier to learn Spanish than they find it to learn Almanca yada İngilizce. With more technical support it is faster ve easier to get used to the sound of a language.

A language consists of (what a surprise) of vocabulary, approximately 40 000 words. This sounds quite a lot, ama learning vocabulary can be trained. If sen are used to the sound of a language it is possible to learn about 20 words per hour. If sen study for one hour a day, sen have 20 words a day. Within a year sen get 300 x 20 = 6000 words, which is about the double the words sen need to manage every day life yada even read a newspaper. There are people thinking about the importance of a word, whether it is necessary to learn it yada not. During this time the kişi thinks about this, it could be saved in senin mind. A useful method to learn a language is for instance to read a newspaper, ben.e. Frankfurter Allgmeine Zeitung', to write down the unknown words. Newspaper usually use the actual vocabulary, which is not necessarily true for literature. 'Das Niebelungenlied' cannot be considered a contemporary kitap. sen might be surprised how fast sen'll be able to read quite fluently.

sen can also use any creative idea sen have. For instance bazı put the Almanca vocabulary of the all the things in a ev on this thing, on the mirror in the bathroom, the fridge, the computer etc. sen can read them aloud yada learn them before going to bed (perfect sleeping pill!).

sen'll need bazı disciplin a bit time ve a good dictionary. Then it's sadece up to sen ve senin creativity how fast sen will be able to talk in Almanca.

The question about grammar is not that easy. How much grammar does a adam (respective kadın) need? This manual has analysed the grammatical structure of the Almanca language. We know that grammar is already overused at school, in universities ve other courses. We know that a çocuk does not learn a language this way. We also know that the human brain does not work in a chaotic ama a quite structured way. So why not using this to bring bazı order in the chaos of a language. If not knowing at least part of the grammar, all sen can do is repeat what sen hear. Producing own thoughts can sadece succeed if the structure is clear.

How much of this is needed is another thing. bazı will notice that they find the doğru way just automatically, bazı things need to be trained longer. We suggest to get an overview over the grammatical structure ve to find the similarities ve differences to senin own language. If sen know them passively ve recognise them in a sentence sen have already managed the first step. A second step is to finetune the details of the grammar ve use them actively when talking ve putting senin own thought into senin own words.

However there is this allround truth that sen sadece learn a language if sen speak it. There is no use in all the grammar in the world. If sen don't use the language, sen will forget it.

There is also the possibility to read original literature. Here sen find bazı interesting works that are easy to read ve still very nice.

  An suggestion for learning:
step 1: Something is said ve the possibilities of answers is limited. Typical for situations as a tourist, in a hotel, a restaurant, at the beach etc.
step 2: An abstract topic is discussed. Since the other kişi knows senin possibilities of talking in his language o/o will be careful, speak more slowly. sen have the chance to steer the discussion since sen are part of it.
step 3: Read bazı newspapers. It might be a bit more difficult, ama sen have time enough to search for the missing words.
step 4: Read bazı good literature. sen can enjoy the literature part ve sen have time enough to find the words sen need ve to follow the string of narration.
step 5: Understanding news on TV yada the radio. They are spoken usually very clearly ve without saying that might change. They do not use slang. They are close to the written language, ve sen can understand without really understanding because usually one gets the idea.
step 6: Listen to a discussion of two native speakers. It will be much faster than if they discuss with sen. The language will be full of sayings ve maybe even slang yada dialects. sen don't have the chance to influence the topic, sen sadece can follow.
Stufe 7: Watch movies in the orinial versions. It might be about a difficult topic ve the string of narration can be difficult. It's fast ve sen have no chance of influence.

The main thing about languages is not about grammar yada vocabulary. In any language of this world sen have the chance to say something nice yada interesting yada önemli. The ability to do this has nothing to do with the way sen learnt the language, ama sadece with sen.

this means: Have fun
