GermanList is an e-mail discussion group devoted primarily to helping beginners learn German. However, we discuss all aspects of learning German language and culture. We discuss travel, translations, writing, speaking, food, drink, occupations, culture, recreation, genealogy, and methods for learning language. The list welcomes everyone of all ages; we especially welcome K-12 students. We welcome students from Germany and help them learn English.

You may submit questions, facts, clean humor, puzzles, on any subject that interests you. Our group is a good place to ask about phrases you have not been able to translate or puzzling aspects of the culture of a German or English-speaking country. German is the native language in Germany, Austria, part of Switzerland, Alsace, Luxembourg?, Belgium?, Poland?,and small areas of other countries. We welcome members from all countries. We have members on continent except Africa and Anartica.

When you join the group, please introduce yourself by telling us your country, any trips to Germany or English speaking countries, any hobbies or interests you want to tell us about, and subjects you would like others to write about. You may remain anonymous if you prefer.
