A fling with German…


A lot of things led me to learn German alongside Russian. This had nothing to do with me being bored with Russian. It was the culmination of a lot of things - a career crisis, uncertainty, doubt etc. Suffice to say, it’s hard to put into words.

Anyways, I got a starter deck (Goethe Institute A1 Wordlist). It was an alright deck.

P.S. Thankfully, I gained some clarity 10 weeks down the line, and quit German. Learning 2 languages (to a high level) at a time was not my cup of tea. But I do think, that with enough free time and motivation, one can do it.
