German vocabulary

Vocabulary is the most important part of learning a language. To learn a foreign language and be able to use it at the conversational level, you need to strengthen your knowledge of its vocabulary. The more words you know, the more you can speak and understand the language. Naturally, this is the same for German as it is with any other language.

The German vocabulary is no more difficult than the French, Spanish or even Italian vocabulary. In fact, you may be surprised at how much similarity there is between German and English. There are more German words than you would think, that sound very similar to their English translations. The more words you learn, the sooner you will be able to understand conversations, and soon you will be able to communicate with German speakers with relative ease.

In this section, you will find vocabulary lists, and tools for learning German words, online. This will help you gain an understanding of German vocabulary.
