Work out


Here’s where you can find exercises and work out to get the perfect beach body… I mean beach German.
There’s not much here yet but it’ll slowly grow :). I have different ideas for different areas of German and I’ll try them out in the coming months to see how you like it. But you can also help me:

If you have ideas for a cool exercise let me
know in the comments.

But now… Viel Spaß. And enjoy your Muskelkater :)

Listening comprehension

I’m reading you a little, fun folk tale, once slow and once normal, and you can read along. Or just listen. I do voices, too. At least I try :)

Sentence structure

This work out trains your sentence building muscles. I give you a bunch of short sentences and you have to combine them into one long chunk. You train using connecting words as well as sentence structure. We discuss different versions in detail in the comments.

German Summer Camp

In August 2019, learners from all over the globe met here for the first ever, epic as never before German Summer Bootcamp.
In a series of heavy workouts about time words, cases, verbs and their prepositions and sentence structure, we practiced like maniacs.

The next bootcamp will come, but until then, you can relive the pain here  :)

Viel Spaß (oh, you don’t really have to go in sequence)

Work Sheets

Worksheets… ugh. I always hated them. But maybe I have a work sheet system that you hate a little less.
The idea is that you DON’T write on the sheet. The solution is right next to the question. You just have to cover it with a piece of paper or your hand. And then you can do the exercise the way you please… write down full sentences, read it out from the page or just do it in your head.
They’re not meant to be done just once. Use them again and again until you know the examples. That way you’ll build up patterns and automatize stuff. Everybody learns differently so maybe it’s not what you need. But maybe it’s just that :)
Oh… each sheet is a pdf.

I’d love to check out how the Spoken Past form works, but it doesn’t seem to have a link.


Mit großem Interrese lese ich jeden Tag Ihr Blog! Es ist echt wunderbar und hilft mir mehr zu verstehen
Es würde hilfreich, wenn Sie eine Übung an fügen, die wie der B2 – Goethe Test ist. Teil : schreiben. In dieser Übung gibt es einen
Brief, den Fehler in jedem Satz enthaltet und wir müssen dieser Fehlr entdecken.


I love this blog!!!!


what could an answer be in German for= what can we do in London


I am not sure if I should be leaving a comment here – but I am not sure how else to ask for help.

I am finding it impossible to find a German verb conjugator that has English translations right next to it (not somewhere else).

It is hopeless for me to see (for example):

ich werde
du wirst
er/sie/es wird
wir werden
ihr werdet
sie/Sie werden … and the many other associated lists (14? – such as, Präteritum, Plusquamperfekt, Vergangenheit, etc.) without the translations.

I want to see lists with German conjugation AND English translation TOGETHER, such as:

ich werde I will
du wirst you will
er/sie/es wird he/she/it will / becomes etc.
wir werden
ihr werdet
sie/Sie werden ..

Any idea where I could find such a beast?



I love your website. It has by far the best German/English explanations and I love your perspectives. Suggestions for exercises would be more English-to-German sentences as that is how my brain works (for now, anyway). Thank you.


Hi, Love the webpage, really helps me out if things aren’t clear enough from the german course I am attending. I would love to see(hear) a listening comprehension exercise that focuses on real life situations. Eg A mock interpretation or role-play of ordering food in the restaurant, getting a drink at the bar, announcements in the airport or bahnhof etc. I do enjoy the fables and fairytales as well but would find it more useful to practice listening to something I may(or probably will) hear frequently on the streets. Anyway just a suggestion. Thanks for all the hard work you’ve put into clarifying such mysterious and hard to explain grammar concepts.

ich möchte fragen, ob diese Seite tot ist? es sieht wirklich cool und hilfreich aus.


Hi :)
Thank you for sharing these audio stories with text.
I’ve just started to learn German and I wanted to ask you:
Am I OK to share these stories on my LingQ account? With a link to your blog of course.


Soweit bin ich voll beeindruckt mit dieser Webseite. Je mehr Übungen, die du machst, desto besser, weil die Autonomie und leichte Laune, die du gibst, für Spaß macht.
