Days of the week in German

Die Wochentage

Days of the week in German

Today I’m going to show you the days of the week in German

They are not so difficult. Listen to the main sentences many times.

If you are doing this kind of lesson for the first time, please click here to open the instructions.

How to learn the weekdays in German 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
