Learn German with blogs:
Here are the best German blogs for you to learn and immerse into the German language while following your personal interests at the same time.
I could present you with a long list of German learner blogs and let you take your pick. However, I will leave that task to Google.
Why German learner blogs? I recommend you read the best German blogs instead, because you learn most effectively by immersion and by tailoring your German lessons to your personal interests. Yes, you are interested in learning German, but are probably even more interested in own hobbies and regional events, and other things of personal importance? So why not marry the two for total immersion and enjoyment?
Even for beginners, it is greatly beneficial to learn German with German blogs and since it is your personal interests you are reading about, your brain will make better connections because the context is already familiar to you and this will help you understand even more difficult texts and remember new vocabulary better. You can always take an online dictionary such as leo.org to help.
A comparison: read a German learner blog about “How do I remember new German words?” or you could follow a blog about a young mum (if you are one yourself), such as „Hauptstadtmutti“ … what do you think, which blog would be adding more new words to your German vocabulary?
I appeal therefore that you should not just study German, but to personalize the content and incorporate your learning into your life by reading GERMAN BLOGS instead of German learner blogs.
Here are top blog categories and best examples listed for you:
