    There are a whole host of reasons for learning German, however when I asked my readers, they responded with new and different reasons. Here are 5 different reasons (out of the many reasons featured in this episode), in no particular order: Ich liebe deutsche Musik. (I love German music.) Die Deutschen sind praktisch und das finde ich gut. (Germans are practical and I think that's good.) Sprache ist für mich eine große Herausforderung. (German is a big challenge for me.) I work with German customers and suppliers. I love having a hobby. Here are a whole bunch of reasons for learning German, and an opportunity for you to share with the other listeners and readers why you learn German.

    Nine Years of GermanWithNicole.com! Although I've taught German since 2010, I've only taught privately and online since 2013. (Wellllll, it may have actually been 2012, but this was a chance development in my life that turned into a business, so if you won't tell anybody, I won't.) Today you'll hear two short numbers exercises in German, a thank you in German followed by the same text in English, and then five fantastic German words I've come across in the past few years. So you learn the correct spelling, here are the words in a different order: das Erdmännchen repetieren die Habseligkeiten (plural) die Hemmungsschwelle der Schnäppchenjäger Danke nochmal für's Zuhören und passen Sie gut auf sich auf! ******** Nicole Warner is "Frau Warner" of GermanWithNicole.com and is a German learner (certified level C2) and a certified instructor for German as a Foreign Language.

    This one's about authenticity and integrity. Part 3: 8. You only have to follow two rules in my classroom. 9. You will encounter authentic elements of Germanic culture, not terrible clichés. 10. You'll learn real German. 11. You won't ever have to put up with me becoming a poser making myself into a social media influencer.
