Ask for names and origin, talk about languages & indefinite article (ein, eine), countries VS people VS languages (Turkey, Turk, Turkish). Anna is working at her part-time job as a waitress in the university café. She sees Meili and they talk about the students in her German course. Meili gets Paul's number from Anna. What could she want from him? Transcript, lesson and extras: german-stories.com/10-turkei-turke-turkisch-indefinite-articles There is a constant, low amount of new words per episode When writing a learning story it's easy to get carried away by an idea for a dialog. But that can result in an episode having way too many new words. That's demotivating for the learner. We counted every word and went through endless writing and re-writing sessions for every episode to make sure that didn't happen to our story.

Give and receive advice as well as a gift & articles kein/keine VS ein/eine, nein VS nicht VS kein. Paul is watching TV with his parents. They complain: Paul has no girlfriend, no good job and no money. He should get his act together. They give him a valuable book as a present in order to make his apartment more stylish. That confuses him: Why is the book valuable? And how valuable? Transcript, lesson and extras: german-stories.com/11-das-buch Boost your German online! At German Stories, we have speaking, reading, listening, and writing exercises. And there is a lesson plan with progress tracker. It's all right here at german-stories.com German Stories starts from zero, and leads you to your goal in small steps It's not difficult to create a learning story and jump to complicated grammatical structures early on, just so the author doesn't have a hard time writing. But it's very difficult to fit your writing into a well structured teaching plan, so that the student doesn't have too much trouble learning German. We did it the hard way. Hard for us, easy for you: Luckily there's only a little bit of grammar per episode for you to learn.

Online profiles, understand descriptions of people & irregular verbs: sein/haben, sentence type summary: declarative sentence, W-question sentence, yes/no-question sentence. Paul reads the book he got from his parents. He doesn't find out why it’s valuable, and how valuable it is. He doubts the book will add style to his apartment. But his parents are right: he has no girlfriend. Paul is looking for a date and checks ‚Finder‘ profiles. Which girl does Paul like? Will she show interest? Transcript, lesson and extras: german-stories.com/12-paul-sucht-ein-date Why we made German Stories We felt that the best way to learn German is NOT using the old style teaching material with chapters full of tiny texts and unrelated stories. Our idea was to spoon-feed you German in very small bits. And to tell you parts of one big story at the same time. An awesome, full-blown story with different storylines that continues throughout all lessons. We wanted to keep you motivated and say "I can't wait to find out what happens next episode!"

Greetings and farewells in a text message & irregular verbs: geben/lesen/sehen, modal particle ‚aber‘. Paul is chatting with Laura again. This time he is not so clumsy. He invites her to his housewarming party, and she accepts the invitation. But Paul is unsure: Should he also invite Tim? Maybe Anna wouldn't like that … Transcript, lesson and extras: german-stories.com/18-kommt-laura-zur-party Our characters DON'T speak at a regular speed, just like native speakers among themselves. Why? They speak natural German. But we put in countless hours of work to direct every voice actor so that he or she speaks a bit slower and more clearly, adapted to the language level. You can always speed up the audio in the app. We believe this is the better way. Just as we believe that at the beginning, training wheels teach a child to ride a bike better than bruises from falls.
