Career Café – ‘Simple joy of learning the German Language’ with Goethe Institut Dresden

17:00 - 19:30

Let’s dig into some fun ways of learning German language!

Learning a foreign language is never an easy task. It requires patience, persistence, and a lot of hard work – especially when you are attempting it in your adulthood.

Mark Twain in his essay – ‘The awful German Language’ – wrote: “A person who has not studied German can form no idea of what a perplexing language it is. It is easier for a cannibal to enter the Kingdom of Heaven through the eye of a rich man’s needle that it is for any other foreigner to read the terrible German script.” Of course, one can relate to such bouts of frustrations while learning the foreign language but in the end Mark Twain along with his friend Harris successfully learnt it and so can you! 😊
