session, project 1


No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch.


Did you know? Apart from learning a fair amount of German, you will get familiar with different language learning methods. Our goal is not only to make you a confident German speaker, but also to make you a confident and efficient language learner. After finishing this course, you will have the knowledge necessary to study independently with all kinds of different resources.

① Project Text

Today we'll give variety to your daily practice with the project text.

② Flashcards

Study #49-64 (The cards with P1S4 in the top corner)

Speak up! Are you pronouncing the words and sentences on the flashcards only in your mind? Are you muttering them under your breath? Then, speak up! For most people, speaking is quite a hurdle to overcome. It can feel awkward when you're alone in your room, starring at a screen or looking at a piece of paper, and start talking to nobody. But remind yourself: everything else is just a waste of time! When learning a language, using your time most efficiently usually translates to using it most actively. So get out of your comfort zone and get the most out of your daily flashcard session!

④ Special

In the howwedu 512 German course, you don't start by working through the typical list of vocabulary for everyday situations. Learning those kind of phrases is helpful, but their use is very limited. In our course, we aim at teaching you the most frequent and useful words, and giving you the amount of practice you need to use them freely and correctly in all kinds of different situations. And because we present them to you in so many different texts, every once in a while, it's time to take a step back and look at a synopsis of the most typical phrases using the vocabulary you already know. That's the purpose of the howwedu Cheat Sheets. Discover which everyday situations you can already master, enjoy seeing how much you've already learnt!
