Sneak Peek



Hallo ihr lieben,

and welcome to day 21 of the absolutely epic Yourdailygerman Advent Calendar. And today,
I want to give you a little sneak peek into something I have been working on quite a bit over the past year:

My Abs


Nah, kidding.
My abs are super chiseled of course, but they don’t have much to do with German learning.
What I really want to show you a sneak peek of is the book I am working on.
Or I should say, WE are working on.
Because I have teamed up with a really talented illustrator and we’re making a book about separable prefix verbs.
Not sure, actually, if I told you about that last year in the calendar :).

So yeah, the concept of the book is basically like a “prefix verb best of“. So we’re taking 30 of the most interesting ones and for each, we’re doing a quick explanation of its meaning and a few examples, but most importantly, a cartoon. And those are really really lovely.
Of course, there’ll also be a short section about grammar, but the idea is really that you have a beautiful book you can flip through every now and then, read a couple of entries and slowly get a feel and maybe even a liking for prefix verbs.
So are you ready for a preview?
Here it is. It’s a little blurry, but just click on the image to get the full size pdf-version.

(click the image or here for full size pdf)


We’re still working on the layout, and we still have to finish some texts and some cartoons but yeah… just a matter of time and you’ll get some 200 pages of prefix verb awesomeness :).
Like… I’m super duper excited and I’m sure you’ll really like it.

So yeah, that’s the little sneak peek. Let me know in the comments how you like the look of it so far and if you have any ideas for it or some questions.
And other than that, have a great day, and I’ll see you tomorrow.


Oh and here is Helen’s (the artist) Instagram, for more cartoons about German:
