How German Short Stories for Beginners has been laid out


We want to help you read stories and understand each aspect of the language in the most entertaining way, so we’ve compiled a series of tales which will each cover a particular tool of the language. Each story will tell a different tale involving unique, deep characters with their own personalities and conflicts, while ensuring that you understand the objective of the particular language device in German. Verbs, Pronouns, Nouns, Directions, Time and Date; all of it will be covered in this book. At no point will we introduce concepts too difficult for you to grasp, and any complicated vocabulary will be studied at the end of each story.

The stories have been written in a way that will allow you to:


a) Read the story without any distractions, paying attention solely to the plot of the tale without making special emphasis on distracting elements.
b) Interpret the tale you just read with the use of two summaries — one in English so that you may ensure you understood what the tale was about and can go back to it if there was something you didn’t understand properly; and another in German for when you start to dominate the language a bit better, allowing you to create your own summary for the book later on.
c) Understand the related terms expressed throughout the story with the use of a list of vocabulary that will give you important definitions and clear up any doubts you may have acquired.
d) Last but not least: ensure you have understood what you’ve read by providing you with a list of simple-choice questions based on the story, with a list of answers below if you want to corroborate your choices.


All of this will ensure absolute efficiency in not only reading the stories, but in understanding and interpreting them once you’re done. It is absolutely normal that you may find certain terms unknown to your knowledge of the language, and it is equally normal that sometimes you may ultimately not entirely understand what the story is about. We’re here to help you, in any way we can.
