Why and How to Learn German Incredibly Quickly

On Ideas

On my first Trip to Europe Germany was the country that most surprised me. I had expected it to be overwhelmingly industrial and cold, with the people having a penchant for systematic and logical problem solving.

I couldn't have been more wrong.

Berlin was teeming with young, exciting life, the rural areas were filled with trees and beautiful vistas, and the people were endearing and happy. Most of all I was even more surprised at how well Germany was doing economically, politically and socially compared to other European nations. Even in the midst of the recession, Germany managed to pay off it World War 1 debt, keep unemployment flat, and keep its GDP to debt ratio in a good standing. Germany's infrastructure and social policy were equally impressive, with clean parks, water, good health care, and amazing roads being widely available. Germany seemed like a dream world.

But what really drove me over the edge? The real reason I started learning German?
