Why should you learn idioms?
Idioms will help students improve their communication skills. The use of idioms has a great influence on the learning process in a new language, especially in German.
To develop an understanding of idioms helps you mainly in two ways:
1. The more idioms you master, the more natural the language sounds like
2. When learning the idioms, you will also learn about the country's culture and everyday language

Idioms play a very crucial role in the German language.
Only those, who developed an understanding of the key idioms in German language, will be able to gain a better understanding of the language and the cultural roots of the German language and society.
You will find many helpful idioms in this course, such as:
„am Ball bleiben“
„alles unter einen Hut bringen“
...and many more.
Do not try to translate word by word..
„stay at the ball“
„get everything under your hat“
Because like this, all the sentences are nonsense and nobody would understand you if you used the words like this, nor could you follow a conversation in German properly, if you understood these words literally.
If you "want to have more on the box" (etwas auf dem Kasten haben) fast, then you should not „head into the sand" (den Kopf in den Sand stecken) but "roll up your sleeves" (die Ärmel hochkrempeln). (Literally translated :)
Do not worry: at the end of this course, you will understand all these idioms and you will be able to use them appropriate in your conversations.
Enjoy getting a better grip of the German language!
I am working as a team leader in a personal recruitment agency. We do staff experts in different sections into midsized and big companies that are located in Germany and Switzerland. In my daily business I guide qualified employees through the application procedure and keep my ears open to all the questions that might come up within this process. I deal with specialists from all over the world, mostly from all different European countries.
You can understand that extraordinary rhetorical abilities and a precise utilization of the German and also English language are a very important part of my daily business at work.
On top of that, I have a personal faible for languages as such and especially for my mother language, which is German. For this reason, I am already helping international students learn German for several years. As my German, it is completely free of any dialects (which you don't find very often in Germany), my students learn the high German (a.k.a “Hochdeutsch" in German language).
Apart from German, I do also speak English, French and Turkish on an advanced up to a very advanced level.
I have a grown son who is also fluent in English and French (actually he was the first student I taught in learning a foreign language).
Privately, I do love to spend my time in reading German and English literature. As a language enthusiast, I am taking language classes in Turkish in order to improve my language skills. Last, but not least, I am doing a lot of sports as a compensation to all the mental work.
