Learning to learn

Wie das Lernen im Gehirn funktioniert

Learning a new language, such as German, is like an adventure.

It starts with the brain absorbing new words and sentences through seeing, hearing and reading. These impressions are then processed in the brain and compared with the knowledge already acquired in the mother tongue.

In order to learn German successfully, it is crucial to practise regularly and repeat the acquired knowledge so that new connections in the brain become stronger and stronger. A small lane should become a multi-lane highway – this is how you have to imagine the links or neuronal connections.

If you learn actively and continuously, your brain will strengthen the neuronal connections. Focusing on correct pronunciation and grammar can help with this.

Motivation also plays a major role in learning German. A personal interest in German culture or communicating with German speakers increases the ability to learn.

In addition, techniques such as reading books, watching movies or practicing with native speakers are effective ways to reinforce what you have learned. Avoid distractions and create an environment in which you enjoy learning. Maybe it helps to put flowers on the table or drink from your favorite cup.

Learning German as a foreign language is a journey that requires patience and perseverance. The brain works in a unique way to learn this new language. Use the methods and strategies mentioned above to maximize your learning progress.
