Days of the week in German

Die Wochentage

Days of the week in German

Today I’m going to tell you what one of my students thinks about days of the week in German.

While this is a fun practice lesson, it will help you not only learn the days of the week in German but also strengthen other areas of your German. 

All you have to do is listen to the main sentences many times. 

Let’s go! 

A student’s view of the weekdays in German.

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
