How to learn German fast - simple German phrases 1

In this site, I teach how to learn German fast and effectively using a system to learn languages. A simple glance around will see many articles on language learning, memorisation, German language skills, tips and ideas, and the like. This language learning system can be effectively applied to learning any language, and here is the link that you should be visiting here, if you want to have an overview of an effective language learning system that helps you learn German fast and enjoyably:

I have a travel blog called Tour and See the World, and I have visited Germany already. There are several requests for German tips, German travel tips, German culture and German language tips and the like, and so I have decided to give a series here on How to Learn German Fast on simple German phrases that most travellers and language learners should know. For beginners, this might be quite tough, but try your very best to learn. For intermediate language learners, this might be relatively easy, but do take it as revision, and besides overlearning is one of the key principles of language learning. For advanced German language learners, you may actually skip this section and instead review and revise the language learning system that I advocate here on this site.

Simple German phrases that you need to know (German - English)

NB The German language is pronounced exactly as the words are spelt, so with a basic command of the German language alphabet, one is able to pronounce almost anything that is German. It is really that simple, and the hardest aspect of the learning is learning the sounds of the alphabet at first.
