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 :)

2/10! I haven’t read any of your lessons on prefixes yet so all of this was new and he trying to figure it out on my own, we learn from my mistakes! Though all the boxes turning green made me think I was the best guesser in the world

Has anyone ever worked out which verb has the most prefix variants? I tried making a list in my head of (I think) ‘stehen’ and got to some silly number like 15, then my girlfriend came up with another 3 or 4 … unbelievable!

I love this quiz and I love the multiple choice format. These prefixes are hard enough and I initially thought I would fail but on two separate occasions and each being over a week apart I got 5/10. It shows to me I learnt nothing the first time, despite some extra research into ziehen. Perhaps third time lucky.

Hey, I got all of them right. Maybe I’m starting to get the meaning conveyed by the prefixes

Exzellentes Quiz, gutes Format. Vielen Dank, Manuel. Ich habe 70% erzielt. Es ist lustig, aber wenn ich gutabschneide, mag ich das Quiz-Erlebnis, aber wenn ich nicht so gut abschneide, habe ich das Gefühl, dass es etwas mit dem Quiz zu tun hat. Ich bin nicht der einzige..

Only 5/10, but I really enjoyed it. Is there a “rule of thumb” for r- prefixes in general?

This quiz setup was super. However, the more I study, the less I seem to know – only 4 correct !! :-( !!
This calendar is a wonderful gift. Vielen Dank.

I believe I answered all items correctly, but the quiz entered them incorrectly.
