Basic Lesson 32

This time a funny vocabulary lesson

Vocabulary Lesson 

Note: Today I would like to introduce you to one of my vocabulary lessons. I have created 76 lessons of this kind.

These 76 vocabulary lessons are included in my Package XL and Upgrade Package. They start with basic words and take you to a higher level step by step.

Most of my students speak German fluently by the time they have finished all 76 vocabulary lessons, all TPRS story sets and my fairy tales (the three packages in my online store).

Now have fun with this sample online lesson:

If you are doing this kind of lesson for the first time please read the instruction first. 

How to learn German with this kind of lesson effectively:

1. Read the text in German and English.
2. Read silently and listen to my voice at the same time.
3. Read the German version along with me and/or repeat after me
(pause after every sentence or phrase and then repeat after me)
– do this many times until you feel comfortable
– try to imitate my voice
– it puts your mouth through the exercise of saying
the words in decent German pronunciation
– it puts the German right into your head
– the more you repeat the more familiar it gets

4. If you feel comfortable, go on to the Question and Answer Part.
5. Read and listen a few times to my questions and answers.
6. Read along with me and/or repeat after me
– do this until you feel comfortable (even if it takes 5 times every day)
7. Try to answer the questions in the pauses (only if you are ready).
– Reading the German version along with me
or repeating after me – is just fine!
– If you do this many times you will be able to answer the questions
automatically at a certain point.
8. Repeat this lesson every day for one week or more.

If you are a beginner, just read the English translation and listen to the recorded speaker! You should also try to listen and answer some questions.
Don’t worry if you can’t answer right away. Always step by step!

Tip: Try to imagine the situations in your mind. It will help you to remember the words! If you think this lesson is a little too advanced for you, keep this in mind: Even the most difficult lesson is easy after some repetitions!

Vocabulary Lesson
!

Don't stop now!

Go back up and practice again. Check the translation until you understand the German sentences – Listen, Listen, Listen!!!

Now the very important Question and Answer Part.

Please don’t think that this part is too difficult. If you are able to understand the first part of this lesson above then you will be able to master the question and answer part of this lesson after a few days and repetitions.

Repetitions are important because your brain cannot process so many information in one go! You can learn so many things with only one lesson but only if you repeat it many times for the next few days. Try to answer the questions out loud (after the question but before my recorded answer). If you cannot do it yet, please just listen to this part a few times, repeat the first part above again (check the translation in the first part if you don’t understand the words) and then try the question and answer part again. If you do this, your progress is inevitable!

Remember:
Repetition is the key to save the meaning of the words, the pronunciation, the word order, the spelling etc. in your long term memory – if you don’t repeat, you will forget.

Repeat the vocabulary lesson (especially the question and answer part) above every day for the next few days. You will be amazed by your progress.

The question and answer technique is like a simulated conversation and will help you to think in German step by step. Being able to think in German is the key to fluency. Try to answer the questions out loud (after the question but before my recorded answer).
