    German is brutal even for native speakers, but keep your head up and learn it, most of the important literature was written in german. Dont waste time on learning the konjunctive II nobody uses it anymore just use "würde".

    @nitwhiz Deutsch ist eine tolle Sprache zum Beleidigen von anderen. Ansonsten meh bis Super-GAU.

    Every language is hard. The most important thing is practice. You won't get anywhere without practicing the language.

    If you don't have any native speaker to talk to, maybe watching videos on youtube in the given language may help a bit to get used to common speech.

    @ddephor I forgot to add that I and the whole class are native speakers.

    @PublicByte what kind of class is that?

    I remember back at school, we got to read super old german literature. And while some kids knew some of the words from their grandparents or whatever, I was at total loss (I'm not a native speaker but we moved here when I was 9). Like what the hell does that even mean?! So many words I've never seen before and will never see again but damn. Was hard. xD

    @PublicByte wait what?😐🤔
    what am I missing? I'm an italian, but have grown up my whole life in germany, so I consider myself as a native geman speaker, who can also speak italian, even if no more "das Gelbe vom Ei".
    Have tried to explain some concepts of the language to some italian cousins and have successfully failed several times. Yeah german is often quite tricky.😅
    Please elaborate...

    @hasu well, our teacher is heavily focused on grammatic, that's the reason why everyone fails ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    @PublicByte I can't do grammatics in any language for the life of me. I go by intuition. If that doesn't fit, well, I'm fked then I guess. But I have a fairly good intuition in that sense I guess.

    This reminds me when I moved to Zürich.... and anyone living there or with some German knowledge will get what I mean with this.

    Yesterday I tried to explain to my chinese friend why "schnurrbart" is also called "rotzbremse" and "pornobalken" and what they respectively mean.

    He was very confused.

    @EdoPhoenix nobody says garbage like "ich würde sein". It's "ich wäre".

    The only case where "würde" is routinely used is if the konjunktiv is identical to the past tense.

    @PsCustomObject I will probably move to Zurich for a few months later this year and now that I think about it, I should probably just speak English there!
