How to learn with German short stories?

Our method is very simple. Please read and listen to each German story many times until to understand it. If you struggle with understanding, you can use English translation. After reading the story many times, you should remember it almost by heart.

Once you understand and remember the short story, work with vocabulary by listening and repeating words and phrases. You will find a list of all important German words and phrases with audio on the next page. Remember, it is very important to say German words aloud as this will help you to remember them better.

In the last part of the lesson, we will test your German vocabulary. You will need to match German phrases with their English translations.
