TestDAF

Study in DE
If you want to take the TestDAF, you already need good German skills. The TestDAF institute recommends you to take at least 700 German lessons before attempting to take the test. The best results can be achieved after you took 1000 German lessons. The TestDAF is a prerequisite for non-German native speakers if they want to study at a German university. The contents include business texts and vocabulary integrated in listening, speaking, reading and writing parts. The way you communicate is more important than grammar, so you should make sure you receive enough communication training with your German teacher. 
MyWebAcademy prepares you for this exam with a native German teacher. Contact us to find out more or visit our website.

You can find more information about HOW TO APPLY FOR ADMISSION TO A GERMANY UNIVERSITY by visiting the DAAD website, which is the German Academy Exchange Service.

Apprendre une langue étrangère est devenu primordial de nos jours que ça soit au niveau professionnel (avoir un poste à responsabilités, gérer une filiale à l’étranger …), ou personnel (échanger avec des amis dans le monde entier, s’ouvrir aux autres cultures…).

Il n’y a rien de bien compliqué à apprendre une langue étrangère et vous allez vite vous en rendre compte : 30 à 60 minutes par jour peuvent suffire !

1. Un peu de grammaire
Pour commencer, suivez une petite leçon de grammaire chaque jour. C’est indispensable, car la grammaire c’est à la base de toute langue. Un bon Bescherelle de grammaire vous permettra de traiter chaque jour un point précis de grammaire.

Stop Dementia by Learning a Second Language!


Source
A study showed that bilingualism may delay dementia by three to fours years. This means you can add three to four additional years of life quality if you can speak at least a second language fluently. Being bilingual obliges the brain to juggle with words, patterns, sounds and structures from different languages, thus involving multi-tasking, concentration and brain flexibility at the highest level.

2. You can learn from anywhere you want: from home, from the office, from the hotel you are at or even at the pool or the beach, as long as you have access to the internet, a computer and ideally a headset.

How Newborns Learn Languages

Source
Newborns are not confused by 2 different languages they are taught from birth onwards. Learning 2 native languages will even help them learn new languages as they get older.

In the past, people were concerned about babies being exposed to two languages in their early childhood. Bilingualism was looked upon with suspicion and children lost the valuable opportunity to learn two or even more languages with perfection. It will never be as easy as learning a language than when you are a child which is why nowadays there are numerous books and articles written about the subject multilingualism. Kids are able to acquire up to 4 native languages without having any disadvantage over their monolingual friends.
