Learning the German language can be an entirely never-ending education. You might think that since the German language is very keen and strict when it comes to its articles; there is no other way in for you to be able to learn other parts of the German language unless you go through the articles properly.
Actually, a person learning German as his second language and has managed to learn and use properly German articles, the remaining lessons of the German language can become suddenly easy. Having said this, it of course means that any one person who has not encountered the German language in his entire life has the possibility of learning and speaking the language with full confidence. But when is this going to happen? Certainly there isn’t any time specification for this since learning another language can be a serious course for some while it may just be a part-time hobby for others.
What matters here is that you, as the student and learner, are willing to go beyond what is usually used and seen by most. After all, what is the use of the internet if you do not extend extra effort in finding the best method suited for you in learning the German language?
Simply think of the articles (der, die, das) as an important element of each German word. Add to it the fact that each of these articles always has to come before a noun. This can be unorthodox compared to what has been traditionally taught but by just trying three of the articles, one has to come out correct.
Okay, as far as the standard rule is concerned, you can actually use it to help you out in determining which article is correct. Grouping them together would be one as in nouns with adjectives ending in “-heit” or “-keit” always take the “die” article. If you are just observant enough with the pattern and how the words go about; you will actually notice these things and believe me, they are really helpful.
Go on ahead and explore more of what you can find about the German language. You will be surprise but the quality of what you will learn is obviously more than enough.
