You’ll get the vocab plus three different ways to practise/ remember the words: with an infographic, slides and a video.

The words

  • die Betten – beds
  • die Matratze – matress

There you are, you’ll never know when you might need any of these words. Maybe one day, when we can travel again, you might have to ask for a second pillow, who knows …

How can you learn these words?

You can make a vocabulary list with them but even better is to turn them into sentences. You can do that with any paper or electronic notebook. Or you could buy my notebook which I designed specially for German vocab learners. You can even choose one of two colours ☺

Red notebook

Orange notebook
