Low German Tutoring FAQ
Low German is a language that is spoken in the northeastern Netherlands and Northern Germany. It has around 7 million speakers and it is most closely related to English and Frisian. The language is called Low German in Northern Germany, but it is known as Low Saxon in the Netherlands. There is some debate in the linguistic community as to whether Low German should be considered its own language or if it should simply be considered a dialect of German. Low German is not often taught outside of Germany and the Netherlands. Thus, if you want to learn Low German, there is a good chance you will be attempting to learn it on your own unless you decide to work with a tutor. If you have been searching for "Low German tutoring near me," contact Varsity Tutors so that we can help you connect with a Low German tutor.
Here are the major concepts a Low German tutor can cover:
Low German is divided into both East Low German and West Low German. Furthermore, East Low German and West Low German are divided into subcategories of different dialects. There are also more than a dozen different dialects of Low German in the Netherlands. It can be difficult to determine which dialect best fits your needs while working on your own. Low German tutoring can be helpful because a tutor can help you identify the cultural aspects of the language that determine which dialect may work best.
As Low German is not considered a standardized language, there isn't a standard consonant system either. Additionally, as Low German is not standardized, it does not have standardized rules in terms of punctuation, capitalization, and spelling. For the most part, Low German that is spoken in Germany uses the rules that are used in the German language and the Low German spoken in the Netherlands uses the Dutch rules. This can be challenging for some students to grasp because most students are likely used to standardized rules that govern the use of a language. An attempt was made to develop a standardized spelling in the Netherlands, but several communities believed that this additional writing system would merely lead to more confusion.
