Remember when you learn German, it helps to think about:

Learning a foreign language is no walk in the park and is commonly considered a long, tiresome and difficult especially when trying to learn German grammar rules.

You do need to align your expectation to taking your time to learn

The expectation of results are high at the start and yes you will learn something in the first few months of your course. 

You need to prepare yourself for years of learning if your goal is to be fluent. Most learners try to reach a B2-C1 level and to focus on their speaking.

The facts are the German language has different sounds, grammatical rules and special symbols that cannot be learnt in a month. 

Everyone who has learnt German has had a “ooops really, I said that!” moment. It is easy to speak about a topic and use a word which in reality had a close cousin and meant something very different. 

Do not worry about it, you will have plenty of time later to joke about the matter. 

Try to read the local newspapers or watch Swiss TV when you can. This helps you to do a little more than the work in class. It is also a simple way to make learning German more interesting.

There are apps for your phone and many find the following websites for dictionary and use of German sentence examples useful.
