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

The words/ sentences

  • das Gerüst/ Baugerüst – scaffolding
  • die Leiter – ladder
  • Die alten Dachziegeln kommen runter. – The old roof tiles come down.
  • Der Hammer – hammer
  • kaputte Dachziegeln – broken tiles

  • der Schornstein – chimney

There you are, you’ll never know when you might need any of these words. 

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
