Tell a story, talk about an accident & perfect tense with separable and reflexive verbs.
Anna has to empty her basement by herself. Her landlord puts pressure on her, but doesn’t help. She drops a box because her shoulder hurts again. That’s when Paul arrives. She reluctantly accepts his help. He gives her painkillers, and together they retell their bike accident story where she injured her shoulder. Later, she even shares an idea with him: He should go to Fritz‘s apartment and sniff around there. Previously, Paul hadn’t been sure why he should go there since Fritz is not even there. But now he gets enthusiastic about the idea pretty quickly. What will Paul be able to find out at Fritz‘s apartment?

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!” If you’re curious about the idea behind German Stories, go to german-stories.com/the-best-way-to-learn-german
