Ich lerne Deutsch zu sprechen. (I am learning to speak German)


So I decided to add one more thing to my plate! Actually, I have been wanting to do this for a very loooooooong time. When I was accepted to my high school, in 1998, I had to pick a foreign language, German was one of them. However, my parents talked me out of it since it’s not that popular and since I wanted to be a teacher, my dad said “Spanish may be more helpful”. So i picked Spanish instead. I regretted it ever since.

Then in 2010, my husband and I went to Germany for our honeymoon. Listening to the native Germans speak was amazing!My husband and I would try to say a few things, but felt so uncomfortable saying them, we were so thankful that the Germans know English! I told my husband, I want to learn as soon as we get home, “I am going to buy Rosetta Stone.” He chuckled at me…but agreed. Well, I didn’t buy it when I got home and life kept trucking on. Still, it was in the back of my mind, that I would learn one day!

In September of 2015, we went back to Germany for our Second Honeymoon which was to celebrate our 5 years of marriage in the 6th year. The learning the German language came right back to the front burner of thought. unfortunately, between planning the trip, kids, life, and anything else, I didn’t have time to purchase or learn.

So, Christmas 2015 comes around. My hubby asks what i want, and I say “Rosetta Stone German.”

BOOM! Christmas came and what was under the tree for me? “Rosetta Stone German” Ahhhh! I was so happy!

I began the lessons on January 4, 2016. The recommended amount of time to devote yourself to the program is 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes. I have been doing 5 days a week 30-45. I am on Level 1 Lesson 4.

I am really enjoying it and gaining the confidence in me saying it. I look forward to doing it everyday during the kids nap time!

Well, I am actually on my way to begin today’s lesson!

Till Next time! 🙂


*I am no way affiliated with Rosetta Stone. My family purchased the program and I am loving it!
