"I took a course of 20 sessions before I left for my masters in Munich, Germany. At the end of the session, I wanted to shift from biology to languages! I had a lot of fun and learnt a lot simultaneously. Sir really made those classes count and I find it really easy to pick up the language after coming here and don't find the language to be a barrier at all. I got to practice spoken German and was exposed to various day to day conversations. His command over the language is amazing and he has really inspired me to consider studying languages in greater depth. His teaching methods really help reinforce the basic nuances of the language. As someone who has studied and worked in Germany, sir was able to give me a lot of insights about the country as well. Thank you Sir for your help. I had a lot of fun learning German and continuing this is Germany. "

There is never an age to learn any art. Practice makes it perfect. I know of my neighbour who started learning classical violin at the age of 62 and after 4 years she made her debut on All India Radio. All the very best.

Constant practice makes it perfect. Nothing is difficult. However, if one doesn't constantly use the language, then the Article associations to Nomen can be problematic. The key is in regularly using the language either by writing or speaking. Or even regular listening to native speakers via TV or Radio.... ...more

The best thing would be to keep an Internet German FM Radio station on in the background as one browses the net, which we all anyway regularly do these days. Certain things get embedded in the subconscious through regular exposure.

Language learning cannot be measure by time specific duration. The more one speaks, practises, listens, reads, it gets better.

The answer I am going to provide is the same for all subjects for both 9 and 10 classes under CBSE. Now CBSE looks at Classes 9 &10 as integrated. So what happens in Class 9 also impacts the students in Class 10, with respect to their overall results. That is why, first of all, their marks are now renamed... ...more
The answer I am going to provide is the same for all subjects for both 9 and 10 classes under CBSE. Now CBSE looks at Classes 9 &10 as integrated. So what happens in Class 9 also impacts the students in Class 10, with respect to their overall results. That is why, first of all, their marks are now renamed Grades. The final grade is known as Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) and it is on a maximum of 10. In order to calculate this, CBSE has the system of Formative Assessment and Summative Assessment. Formative Assessment is an assessment done over four Formative cycles. The class written tests, projects, group work, individual presentation or submission are all assessed and marked. These are cumulatively calculated as FA1 & 2 at the end of 1st Semester and FA3 & FA4 at the end of 2nd Semester. For 9th and 10th. These are class based assessments and evaluations. At the end of each semester there are Summative Assessments. Two per year. At the end of the Semester, after the SA has been completed and marks are given, the marks scored in Summative and the marks scored in Formative would be combined to arrive at a cumulative mark. This is converted to grade. The break up is 10%+10%+30%=50% per term. Both terms together make up 100%. So, even if a test is evaluated for 30 marks, these 30 marks would be converted into 10%. Hope that explains.
