I’ve recently found a new feature of the Rosetta Stone German course. My pronunciation isn’t the best and I’ve realised that you can get a graph of a German person saying a phrase and then compare it to a graph of yourself saying the same thing. Most of the time it works and helps me pronounce the word correctly but on some occasions it sounds to me as though I’m saying the exact same thing but the graphs look completely different!
I wish I’d know about it when I was taking my German class in uni a few years ago. I only had two German classes a week and found it hard to swap from maths mode to German mode especially as once I’d finished any work I had each week for German, I just forgot about it until my next class. Rosetta Stone would have been really helpful to use in between classes, even if it were just for 5 minutes a day. I would recommend it to anyone in a similar situation to the one I was in!
