【Outline (in English)】
In learning any foreign language, “Practice makes perfect.” is often said to be the best way.
What is “practice” in this class?
It is to pronounce German with a loud voice in order to get familiarized with it.
Fortunately, German pronunciation is almost all based on that of Roman alphabet.
So it is easier and simpler than those of English and French.
When you learn words, it is important to learn by heart simple and easy phrases and sentences instead of learning word by word.
Our text book is full of such kind of phrases and sentences.
Rhythmical and lively pronunciation will make you feel good, and feeling good will make your remembrance better.
This is the royal road.
As to the German grammar, there are so many things to understand and remember that you may feel it very troublesome and difficult.
However, focusing on the most important points, you will find it easier.
Let’s pronounce the sample sentences in our text book over and over again until you learn them by heart.
Then you will be able to get the meaning of each sentence, too.
And this will lead you from the elementary class to the intermediate one.
