Knowing a foreign language has become a definite advantage for people who are either studying or working in multi-lingual environments or international institutions. However, being able to write flawlessly in the foreign language can be quite a challenge, more so when the language is German (Deutsch). Not only does it have a wide vocabulary, its grammar is also fairly complex and has a large number of rules. Below are some helpful tips for the learners:
- Reading more in the foreign language definitely helps in building up of vocabulary and exhibiting its correct usage in context
- Learn the German grammar diligently. German grammar and sentence construction is far stricter than those in other languages like English. Therefore, it is important all those principles are correctly utilized.
- Minimize translation of thoughts from the native language to German. Many times the word for word translation does not work correctly.
- Remember that brevity is the soul of wit. Be as concise as possible.
