German short stories for beginners

Welcome to our German language course! The course will consist of 12 short stories created for German language beginners.

The stories will be easy to follow and will contain basic German language A1 and A2 vocabulary.

Each short story will be accompanied by an audio recording and a list of important words and phrases.

How to learn German with stories?

Our method is quite simple. You need to read and listen to each story a few times to understand it completely. If you struggle with understanding something, please use English translation or post a comment below the story. Once you remember the whole story in German, work with the vocabulary by listening and repeating words and phrases. You can also do the drag and drop vocabulary exercise.

Remember, it is very important to say phrases and whole sentences aloud as this will help you to remember them better.

Also, when you finish, please revisit the story after a few days and again after a few weeks, to refresh the information you acquired.
