Students sometimes ask me how they can do additional practice when learning new topics or German grammar. One way is by using pictures. For example, I visited Warwick Castle a few weeks ago and took lots of photos. Pictures like those could be used by any German learner.
For example, a beginner could just label them with basic key words:
Later, they could be used for grammar revision, for example prepositions:
Or sentences could be formed with different tenses:
The list is endless.
So, next time you fancy practising your German grammar a bit differently, use your photographs or cut out some pictures from magazines and start writing. You could even take photos based on the topic you’re learning at the moment. If you’re like me, you’ll always have your phone with you and most phones nowadays have cameras. Go for a walk and look for suitable pictures for your topic. The important thing is to have fun while doing it and what could be better than having fun and learning German? It’s another win-win situation!
