Numbers - German numbers are also written the same way as English numbers, but they are not called the same. Numbers 1-2 have their own individual names.

Once you hit 13, the name becomes a combination of the numbers. For example, 3 = drei and 10 is zehn. Therefore, 13 is pronounced dreizehn. Numbers 13-19 all follow this pattern. 

0 = null

1 = eins*

2 = zwei

3 =  drei

4 = vier

5 = fünf**

6 = sechs

7 = sieben

8 = acht

9 = neun

10 = zehn

11 = elf

12 = zwölf**

13 = dreizehn

14 = vierzehn

15 = fünfzehn

16 = sechzehn

17 = siebzehn

18 = achtzehn

19 = neunzehn

* when 1 is by itself, it is eins. When added onto anything else, the s is removed and it is pronounce ein 

** both 5 and 12 have umlauts

Das Alphabet - The German Alphabet is essentially the same as the English (USA) version. The only differences are  the sounds each letters makes and the addition of the umlauts (ä, ö, ü) and the ess tsett (ß).

Ich lerne Deutsch

Hallo. Mein name ist Arec und ich lerne Deutsch. Hello. My name is Arec and I am learning German. This is my own personal blog to help me keep track of what I have learned and what I should be able to say by now. I started school a couple weeks ago so I am pretty far behind for the posts I need to make, but I will catch.

This is by no means a site to teach others how to speak German. If it helps you, that is great, but this a personal blog meant to help me. If you have suggestions, comments, or find fault with my translations, please feel free to contact me.
