The German Articles

In German we have three main articles:

der (masculine),
die (feminine) and
das (neuter).

Tip: The grammatical gender does not follow a logical set of rules. So always learn German nouns and articles together.

How To Learn With Part A

  1. Have a look at the picture.
  2. Read and listen a few times.
  3. Repeat after the speaker.
  4. Make sure that you imitate the pronunciation of the speaker.

  2. Answer the questions in the pauses (you may look also at the answers).

The TPRS method is the best method if you want to learn to speak German fluently. You will learn the foreign language very naturally and you will learn to think in German step by step. I created a lot of lessons and stories that will help you to get fluent very fast (in months instead of years).

If you want to learn more read on:

How do I learn German as a beginner or as an advanced student? 

The answer is easy, with a method called TPRS.

This method helps beginners but also advanced students. They use the same method but they focus on different things.

Beginners: 

If you are a beginner you should focus at first on: vocabulary, pronunciation and spelling. You will learn these things automatically and with fun if you read and listen to the sample lessons that you will receive with my email course.

Repeat all lessons many times. Repetition is the key to save new information in your long term memory. You can also try to answer the questions (in the question and answer parts) but you don’t need to answer them if you don’t feel comfortable or if you think they are too difficult for you.

Intermediate and advanced students: 

You already have a basic understanding of the German language. Now it is time to enable your brain to think in German. Being able to think in German is what you need if you want to speak German fluently.

The TPRS method and in particular the “question and answer technique” will help you to reach this goal. Sign up to my email course and focus in every lesson and audio story on the question and answer part. Your progress will be huge.

What is TPRS? 

You might ask yourself, “What the heck is TPRS?

TPRS is the method I use (also called storytelling method).

TPRS is the short form for “Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling” and it is a great method for learning foreign languages.

If you have been learning a second language for some time, then you already know that learning can be very boring and exhausting and grammar is always the most boring part. And I bet you have heard that German grammar can be a little tricky and that German is not the easiest language to learn. You may wonder, how can I learn to speak German with TPRS?

Well, have you ever learned something very quickly in your life? 

I bet you did 🙂

And I guess it was something you really enjoyed, right? Actually this is the answer to the question:

How do I learn German fast?  

How is it possible to learn German easily and effortlessly?

The answer is very simple: You have to have fun!

This is why I use a method called TPRS to teach you German.

But let me explain this method a little:

As the name suggests, there is always a story involved. I’m going to tell you a little funny story (or just sentences in the beginning) in German/English (or partly translated into English) and afterwards I will ask questions about it.

This sounds very trivial, right?

But think about it for just one second. Maybe you already know that when you listen to something many times, you can remember it more easily. If you get a funny or interesting story, you would probably have no problem to repeat it more than one time (repetition is very important).

With every repetition you will deepen what you have learned. You will get to know many new words because you always get the English translation as well. But this is not all. You also need to know how to pronounce the German words. And therefore I always provide an audio recording with every lesson/story. You will hear a native speaker tell the story and ask the questions.

Now you are able to learn new words and the correct pronunciation. However, that doesn’t make you a fluent German speaker, right? That is why I also use the „question and answer technique“.

I will ask questions about the story but in a very special way. If you have listened to the story, you learned all necessary German words to answer the questions.

Actually the questions are created in a way that you just need to change the word order of the question a little to answer it correctly. And the most important thing is that you are actively involved. By answering questions your brain is active and will absorb the information just like that.

It is the most effective way to learn new things. If you just repeat sentences like in many language courses your brain is passive and will soon forget all new words.

What shall I tell you more?

I think the best way for you is to try it. After all, my German lessons on this website are free and if you sign up to my email course I will teach you the TPRS method in detail. There are 7 rules and if you follow these rules and use my storytelling method you will speak German fluently in a very short time.
