On of the best approaches to learn German is using stories. The reason is: because it’s fun! Learning a language can easily become a chore, so anything that takes your mind off the struggle while keeping you engaged is perfect. Learning with a comic is even more fun – and easier as well. You don’t have to look up that many words. Many people think about learning with children books – but let’s face it: That´s boring for most of the time.
Why is learning German with a Comic so efficient?:
As opposed to the daily effort in your language school, you can bypass mental blocks and make the learning process so much more efficient and fun. Have you ever had the experience of being so engrossed in a comic or short story that you completely forgot everything around you? That’s exactly what this comic wants to achieve. Understanding German is so much more easier, when you have pictures. The exercises are relatively easy – but by using the words, you will learn a lot!
We all know, that reading can be a great way to learn a language. But the problem is, that it is not always easy to find texts which are both simple and interesting enough, especially for beginners of the German language. Which is really unfair, when you think about it – because for German learners, there is so much interesting material! Unfortunately, most German educators are rather old-fashioned: learn vocabulary the hard, old-fashioned way. (Because they have learned their languages also that hard way)
This comic will make learning German so much easer – that´s guaranteed!
