My personal experiences in learning German

My personal experiences in learning German (personal sharing and stories)

I know that usually some success stories will encourage us; when we hear that others have learnt a language successfully, it will usually inspire us to try to learn that language successfully as well. "If he/she can do it, so can I".

My personal story: I learnt German when I was in Secondary School, that is, from 12- 16 years old. My mother picked the subject for me and I had little choice. She chose it for me, and that was that - not Japanese, not French, but German. I did the "O" level German examination and got A1 for it, that is the top score. I had to study pretty hard for it and that was over 4 years. It was quite fun and interesting, I have to admit. 

Then after that major examination, I didn't study German for the next 2 years when I went to Junior College.

I didn't study German after leaving Junior College either, when I went to the Army to serve my country for 2.5 years. Without studying German for almost 5 years, one would probably forget everything right? Not really. That's because I made sure to keep up with my German and practise at every chance I could get. I got my hands on books and CDs, and learnt German once again. 

I went on to do a one year course in German at university and passed my Testdaf on the first try.

I'll try to post my credentials up on this blog one day, but since I am unable to do so at the moment, here's my examination results email.
