comment What points do I need to consider in order to find the best online course for me?
100% sure. A2 is realistic if you really want to... as for books just look for DaF-Lernkrimi

comment Is there a word for a book adapted to a comic? Similar to “Comicverfilmung”?
Uhm... the common meaning of "Comicadaption" is "based on a comic", not "made into a comic"

@Matthias... 3 of those are forms rather than genres but I got your point. I should have said "certain genres"

It might be that he just used the word to avoid using "comic" twice in one sentence "Comic-Autoren... Comic umzusetzen". That sounds kinda clumsy to my ears. So maybe that's why he or she chose Bildgeschichte... just an idea. Oh also, it might be that the intend was to avoid the "anglicism" graphic novel. In that case I would really go for "graphic novel" instead. I mean, we don't translate the Genres either (science fiction, fantasy, Thriller)

If you want to get a high level in short time, buy a compact grammar, a dictionary, buy an A1 learners novel, sit down and start reading. Write down all the words you don't know on paper. Get the next book, do the same. And learn all the words. Forget about conversation. Just do that for 3 months and learn about 2000 words and getting started talking will take only a week. Forget online courses. They're too slow and waste too much of your capacity on clicking things. They are the way they are because they want to make it fun. Getting a good level fast is not fun, though. It's work.

comment German sentence structure
As for conjugation... you don't have to know conjugation to understand sentence structure but sentence structure, and especially this subject verb switch takes time to sink in even if you've grasped it consciously. Conjugating however is very very basic and if you can't do that that is a real problem. Not because you can't be understood but because it sounds really really bad.

Btw, you need to conjugate the verb "lesen". Sentence structure is nothing to worry about if conjugation isn't an automatism yet.

Please elaborate what exactly you have doubts about. Any source text book or online grammar site will clearly give you the answer. The fact that you have the examples that you have also suggests that you have come across this topic before. So why do you have doubts?

comment Using doch to emphasize a negative reply
Maybe it's a variation of "Ja doch" which is a common phrase to answer "yes" to an impatient inquiry.

comment Using doch to emphasize a negative reply
@Robert... maybe the author was thinking about something like "doch, doch keine Sorge", which basically answers to the unspoken assumption that he doesn't come. But I agree. As it stands, especially with the "!" it strikes me as wrong.

comment Personal pronoun in a dependent sentence
compare also English that can get by without "for myself" just fine. The reason it's there in German is a matter of general style or preference, not content.

comment Personal pronoun in a dependent sentence
@Em1 ... you're wrong. "Das Blut sprang aus den Fingern" is a grammatical sentence, so a Dative "experiencer" is NOT needed for grammar.

comment Personal pronoun in a dependent sentence
@Grantwalzer... technically yes, but I am pretty sure that in combination with the first part of the sentence, most people would assume that I bought it for me, if the recipient were missing entirely. Also, if the person who gets it is someone other than the buyer that has a significantly higher informational value which is why it's very likely that the person who gets it will be mentioned. That adds redundancy to "Mir" because if no person is mentioned,it's likely that there is none other than the buyer. Bottom line... theoretically you're right but that has little effect on language in use

comment Meaning of “jemanden zusammenschlagen, dass ihm keine Jacke mehr passt”
Never heard that before :) (native, 33). From context I'd file it as "beat them up intensively" and ignore it. Curious for the answers
