One consequence of the corona crisis: unlearning the German language

“It takes much longer to react verbally and I can no longer say a sentence quickly and correctly, I have forgotten almost everything in these two months”, tells a woman from Syria tünews INTERNATIONAL. An important problem for refugees during the Corona crisis is the reduced use of the German language. Learning and maintaining the language must be practiced continuously. During the crisis, however, everyone is forced to stay at home and nobody is able to attend a school, a language course, a university or to communicate with others in German: this led to an unlearning of the German language. A language teacher advises: “Now it can be helpful to hear and watch news and films or audio books in German. Then the sound of the language stays in your ears, you may even learn to think in German. In this way, language learners can stabilize their knowledge of the German language .”
