“Cancel participation in the course” – A good choice or a reckless decision?

I woke up really early today. I planned to finish my assignments in German that did not get approved by the teacher and I worked really hard. But when I sync with myself, I understood that it does not give me any happiness like it used to. It became a lot of hard work to me because not only did I have to attend every class or take the class with people that missed it, I had two different tests and two different assignments in the forum but teacher would not help so often. In most cases I had to guess what I did wrong. Even though I was given to talk German with people I did not feel I got the real feeling there either because none of them was a native speaker.

When I checked the check-list this morning I just felt overwhelmed because whatever I did not pass and even some words which I did not know when I did the tests which I passed, I had to write them down and leave a comment to it. I am not very good at long term repetition. And to me effectiveness matters the most. I felt this course does not satisfy that criteria anymore. So even though I purchased the litterature for the next part of the course I just felt “Why not just do it on your own, since you do it any way?“. And I clicked the ” Cancel…” – botton.

Was it a good choice or a reckless decision?

I think the only thing I will miss will be the “Freie Sprechen“. I will not miss the ” Duggas” or the “Mina fel” file. It’s a nonsense to have attented the course before and to do everything from 0. And it’s a nonsense to have so many assignments when the course is 7.5 credits and goes 25%.

I have now three books of Lieber Deutsch 2.0 by Liber and a whole Delfin book. So I am thinking of repeating everything little by little. Translating the texts and just take it at my own pace, no deadlines and requirements. Life will be tough enough. To minimize the tension is natural to me. And I am not so bad at German speaking either. I just have to repeat and do what my teacher did not manage to help me with. Understand the rules of the German grammatics.

Thats’s all. I think its not a bad decision I made. But it will show in the future, I guess.

Thank you for reading & see you later!

Deutsche Sprache & process of learning German from own mistakes

Let me introduce myself…in German 😉👌.

Hallo! Mein Name ist Agnieszka aber nenn mich Agni. Ich bin 27 Jahre alt und ich bin in Polen geboren aber seit 17 Jahren habe ich in Schweden gelebt. Ich bin ein Mutter. Ich liebe meine zwei Söhne. Ihre Name sind Aaron und Austin. Ohne ihnen ich wäre nicht was ich heute bin. Mutterschaft mein Leben verändert hat. Heute ich bin eine Frau mit Ziele. Ich hat viele Träume seit der Vergangenheit. Heute ich die Willenskraft zu erfüllte meine Träume haben . In der Zukunft möchte ich eine glücklich Familienleben und um die Welt zu reisen mit meine Liebling Ahad. Aber bis dahin werde ich hart arbeiten. Danke und Schönes Wochenende. Morgen ist Freitag !

I hope that the German native speakers that understand English enjoyed my not so perfect german grammar. I am aware I could’ve made some mistakes. Building a sentence in German is not easy. That some words need to start with capital letters gave me a lot of setbacks in my learning process as much as understanding how the way we speak can affect the outcome of what you are saying. There are so many rules to follow. German besides French has so many genderlized nouns which can change depending on its form. Then we have der,die,das. It supposed to equal to “a or an” in English but defines the gender of the substantiv. It took me a while to get it right. Now I am struggling with ackusativ in sentences and modal verbs but it slowly going forward.

I am taking my German classes online so I am not sure how me speaking German will turn out in reality but my writing somehow improved. I strongly believe that my future lays in a Germans speaking country. Not sure if its because of my parents that used to leave me to go there for work or because of the trip I made to Austria in 2019 but my heart yearns to go back.Who knows, maybe one day I will be making a set of motivational videos or writing books in German. Unitl then I will try my best to be better at speaking and make friends at school and work. I still got some self improvement left.

Bis Bald.
