The German language is a beautiful one to learn. Based on my own experience, it is not the easiest one to master though. You are always going to have an easier time learning the language if you spend a few month in Germany or hang out with native speakers. Not everyone can do that. Taking a course or two classes might help. These 8 iOS apps can also help you learn German faster:
