The American guide to German fluency in 16 days.

1). Take any English noun and put “Das” in front of it. My wife kept carrying on that German has 3 genders and plurals, but I wasn’t buying any of that PhD level stuff. Just stick that “das” in front, and change the accentuation of the noun. Google “Shmirnese”.
2). Any verb can be improved by sticking “fer”, “ger” or “ker” in front of it, randomly.
3). Any word that has “s”, pronounce “sh”. Just don’t talk much about sitting, say “kein schtanding”
