When I was in college, I used to read German romance novels. The last few years I have been trying to find some good reading material to help pass the time. There was a point where it got so bad that some of my teachers would actually call me out on it. It seemed as if some of my peers thought that romance novels were just about as useful as TV for learning a language. I’ll tell you how you can stay away from this type of misconception and why reading German romance novels can be one of the best things you ever do for learning a language.
German Romance Novels are an innovative genre in German literature. These books are characterized not only by their plots, but also by the way they are written. The novels integrate many contemporary literary devices which make them more compelling to read.
Romantic fiction set in Germany has been called “the next big thing” (by, like, five people) and has been getting a lot of hype lately. So what the heck is it? And why should you care? And also German society, man. How do those people stay so happy and content and lighthearted all the time? Is it just because they’re constantly high on Nutella/pretzels/beer and just can’t feel feelings? I probably should read more novels to find out.
