Taking lessons to learn German is an admirable goal. German is a prominent language of business and culture in the EU, and the most widely spoken language of the European Union after English. It is the official language of Germany and numerous other countries, including Austria, Poland, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, and some parts of Italy.
German is a language which may take a bit of effort to get started in. However, once you get the basic structure down, it’s no different than learning any other language. Beginning learners will conquer basic building blocks as a starting point. These common German words and greetings are essential to learn and learn to pronounce correctly when starting out.
- Ja = Yes.
- Nein = No.
- Bitte =Please.
- Danke = Thank you.
- Hallo = Hello.
- Guten Morgen = Good morning.
- Guten Tag = Good day.
