Advent Calendar 2019 – Prefix To Pull

Prefix to Pull

Hello everyone,

day 3 of our Advent Calendar and today, it’s time for you to get active with some prefix verb fun. Hooray!!
Those of you who have been here last year might remember this type of exercise.
You have to find the proper prefix tverb to convey a certain meaning, and the special thing is … it’s always the same base verb.
And today, we’ll deal with one of the most “prefix version”-est verbs of them all

ziehen

And the difference to last year is that I have a better quiz setup. I’m not entirely sure which is the best format for this type of exercise, so today we’ll try a simple multiple choice approach.
Viel Erfolg und viel Spaß :)

And? How’d you do? I recall that last year many found this type of exercise to be pretty difficult and I wonder if it’s the same with multiple choice. So…. let me know in the comments, how you liked it and if you think this is helpful.
Habt einen schönen Tag und bis morgen :)

for members :)

Habe 70% bekommen. Wundere mich welche, dass ich falsch geantwortet habe. Prefix sind schwierig. Unter vs. runter usw.

OK! Just figured out how to see my results – clickety click…

And the problems were just with the r- before a prefix! Raus, runter. Ok, and an ein instead of an an – the moth one. An makes total sense as it’s the “from the side” prefix. My imagination saw the moths getting attracted INTO the light, kinda like the scene in “Poltergeist”.

This really is the best part of the year!

Those were the exact mistakes I made, the “Raus” vs “Aus” concept is a bit tricky for me as well. It just takes getting a “feeling” for the language I suppose.

Just a quick fix to make: on #9, all the answers are full verbs instead of just the prefixes. It’s not *that* confusing, but it wouldn’t hurt to change that.

The quiz format is great!

Thanks a lot Emanuel, as always great topics, thanks for the Advent Calendar I understand it must be quite time consuming finding the right subjects and making these posts, thanks for all the effort.
By the way, I’ve been studying German for a few years now and I reached a C1 level, and I have to say your posts were probably the most useful tool I ever used to get that tricky “feel” for the language, and the sense of humor in them seriously helped lighten up those difficult and “crazy” concepts as you sometimes called them.
Keep up the good work and God bless.

6/10 which I’m happy enough with; I should have got “Soll ich die Schuhe ausziehen?” though! I’ve never had to use “Diese Musik zieht mich runter. “ before, so that’s definitely a new one for me.
