I’m trying a new and fun way to practice and learn German.

1-I created a new Twitter account @DeutschChiara exclusively for tweeting in German. Google Translate not allowed.

2-I created a Zap to automatically add each new @DeutchGerman tweet to a Google spreadsheet, which translates it to English, which then get translated back to German.

Outline of the Zap

The tweets allow me to keep track of my progress (the fluency of my German tweets should improve over time), while the translation from my German to translated German helps me improve vocabulary and grammar.

Or maybe it will only make me speak like Google Translate. We’ll see!
