Pinterest is wonderful for finding resources which can help you learn German. If you already know how it works, ignore this first part of the blog post and scroll down to the list of people worth following. But if you don’t know what it is, let me explain:

Pinterest is like an online pin board. You find interesting pictures and pin them on your personal board. After a while you  have so many pins that you create more and more boards … and it’s very addictive 🙂

If you like cutting out interesting articles and pinning them on a pinboard, then you like Pinterest.

So, how can it help with your German?

EDIT 2021: This is what my pinterest board looks like

As you can see, I have lots of different German boards: apart from my own blog posts I also collect interesting articles, pictures or videos from other people.

Once you’re on Pinterest you can search for any key words, like ‘German’ ‘learn German’ ‘Deutsch lernen’ or ‘German grammar’, or you follow people or just certain boards. You may like to follow all my boards or just particular grammar boards. The choice is yours. You can even make secrets boards, so that nobody knows what you’re pinning.

‘Pinners’ worth following:

If you’d like to have a go at finding pins with interesting German, check out the following people who all have several German boards. EDIT: When I wrote this post, those accounts were all active. Some of them aren’t anymore but as the accounts are still on Pinterest you can still see the pins. This is one of the great things about Pinterest. Things don’t disappear quickly like on Twitter or facebook.

Let me know if you find any other boards worth following.

Happy Pinning … but don’t forget to come back and read my posts … Pinterest may make you spend lots of time there 🙂
