Learn German vocabulary by topic: Obst & Gemüse – fruit & veg

This post contains affiliate links to Amazon. It means I’ll get a few pence if you buy anything – at no extra cost to you.

Let’s learn some German vocabulary based on a topic. And this month’s topic is one of the fruit and veg boxes I receive every two weeks.
You’ll get the vocab plus three different ways to practise/ remember the words: with an infographic, slides and a video.

Of course, when it gets to food vocabulary, there are a lot more words I could tell you. But as this is all that was in my box, I’ll leave it to you to add to the vocab. Please add as many as you like in a comment or on social media.
