I've enrolled at the institute of language to learn German (my family is mostly German, but I've grown up in Australia). I lived in Germany for about 2 years when I was a kid and picked up enough to have a conversation, but that was about 14 years ago now.
Two things I've come across that confuse me a little:
- The use of euch and du. They both mean you, but how should they be used?
- Words like Spiel. This word can mean multiple things based on it's positioning. For example, spiel ein Spiel -> play a game. Could someone help me out with an explanation on how this works for Spiel and similar words?
Also as a side question if anyone can offer suggestions: are there any good CDs that I can buy and listen to in the car? I take 2 hour trips twice per week so I could get a fair bit in.
