andrew tracey german with andrew telenovela method tracey languagesHi, I’m Andrew Tracey, und ich spreche ein bischen Deutsch (“and I speak a little German”).  No, I’m not “fluent” by most people’s standards of that word, I’m probably around B1 level per the CEFR scale for those of you familiar with that (that means I can have basic conversations about most things but struggle with media like TV shows and movies).  I’m still very much in the process of learning German myself!  I’m a student, just like you.  So why am I running a blog on learning German?

Because I think it’s much more interesting for you to follow along with a fellow student while they’re learning the language than it is to have them report back after they’ve “finished” (which you never really do), that is after they’ve become fairly fluent.  I think you’ll learn a lot more that way, in that I will relate all the little problems I stumble upon as I go, along with my solutions to them, many of which I likely will have forgotten about months or years later when I achieve fluency.  I taught myself Spanish to fluency years ago and run a blog on that as well, How to Learn Spanish, and even wrote a book about how I did it, The Telenovela Method, so I’m no stranger to learning languages.   This is my profession: I learn languages and write about it (on blogs, in books and newsletters).

So please join me, follow along with me, learn from my failures and successes (you generally learn more from the failures, by the way).  Please subscribe to my newsletter and immediately get my list of what I think are the 10 most useful free online resources for learning German.  And, of course, be sure to check out my blog and read all my articles I’ve written to date that will help you immensely, I’m sure, on your journey to learning German.  Viel Glück! (“Good luck!”)

Would you like me to share all the useful resources, techniques, and tricks for learning German that I find as I learn German myself? Come along with me!

I'm a student just like you, right now just barely getting into intermediate territory in German.  I've already found a ton of useful resources, most of which are online and free.  I've also come up with some useful techniques and tricks for learning German that I think will help you.  Let me share all this with you!

I'll tell you about new things I think might help you as I myself discover them.  Let me save you a lot of time and frustration by solving the problems you'll run into before you do (because I've already run into them) and answering the inevitable questions you'll have.  If you'll sign up for my "Learn German with Andrew" newsletter below I'll immediately send you my list of what I've found to be the Top 10 Free Online Resources for Learning German!

Thank you so much for giving me a chance and subscribing to my questionable writings, you'll receive your first message in the next few minutes - Andrew
