Any help is appreciated


Thanks
I learnt Deustche at the age of 22 (which is now ages back)

I started in a PSU which was an Indo German collaboration (or Indische Deustche ZussamenArbeit). It was a part of our training.

It was only G1 elementary though. You get to know terms like good morning, how is it going, etc.
More courses would have given a good grasp.

The training was at a local 'Max mueller bhavan'. At the completion, the chief guest who spoke good German was an industrialist. He was in news sometime back not for pleasant reasons though
