How do you practise your German when you’re no longer a beginner?

One way is to incorporate the new language into daily tasks. And even better, combine your love of German learning with your hobby!

So, following on from my post for those who love knitting, today’s post is for those who love to crochet!

Not only will you learn vocabulary that’s important to you (rather than learning the stuff from textbooks), you will improve your German reading skills (when you read newsletters, articles in magazines or on websites, and patterns), your listening skills (when you watch a YouTube video) and your writing skills (when you make notes about a pattern).

And you will do all that with websites or videos about crocheting! Win – win!

To start you off I have done some research and found some interesting websites for you to check out.
