Get your tongue around German to master speaking English

Research output: Contribution to non-peer-reviewed publicationInternet publication

Abstract

The article argues that perceptions among native speakers of English of German as 'foreign' and difficult are misplaced. It points to the many ways in which the two languages are related and comparable, and argues that learning German or any other language can have benefits for one's understanding of one's own language.
