This website is being written by the 25 members of GermanList. Please join us.
The membershipof GermanList includes three college professors, 4 high school students, 3 teachers, 5 native German speakers, and many beginners and advanced students. This site began in June 1998 and some features are in early stages of construction. Many incomplete pages have been installed so the editors and writers can see what is planned. Caution: Some German and English texts are only machine translations at present. Once a page is approved by both German and English editors we clearly mark that approval at the top of the page so you can study the page with confidence.
We hope visitors can help with the translations and contribute original short texts. We also welcome your original (or public domain) drawings to illustrate the pages, we especially need illustrations for the childern's pages. It would be nice to have picture book pages for childern and adults. For example, drawings of cat, dog, Maus, Haus, Ei, Gemuse, and other objects. Such drawings should convert to as few bytes as possible to speed downloading.
