Reading a book in German - mission impossible?

One of the most exciting achievements when studying German is being able to read a German book. But this also represents a big challenge. Which book is the best to start with? There are tons of great German novels out there, but most of them aren’t  easy to read and are out of reach for a beginner. Tackling a book which is too hard for you isn’t wise as it can lead to frustration and kill your motivation. Instead, you should take small steps towards reaching your goal. Reading should be fun! So start with easy German books for beginners! Well, okay, but now you might be wondering, which books are easy for a beginner to read?

  

Are children’s books the right choice?

Some people recommend German children's books as they’re  written using simple sentence structures. While that's true,  unfortunately, most children's books use vocabulary that is largely useless to you. Of course, this depends a lot on the book, but it’s a common tendency because they’re designed for children and not for adult readers. Look at a children's book in your own language and you will see what I mean.

 

The best solution!

The best solution is to start with easy German books for beginners, which are specially written for German learners and contain simple sentence structures and vocabulary. That's why I created Easy German Grammar Stories for you! Through my experience of over 20 years teaching German as a foreign language, I’ve developed the skills needed to write these easy books. And I want to give you even more! With my books, you not only have the pleasure of reading a story stress free, but you can also improve your German grammar skills if you like. So grammar doesn’t have to be so theoretical anymore! It can be fun and easy! You get a sense of satisfaction from being able to read a book in German, and as positive side effects, you also can improve your grammar skills, build up your vocabulary and boost your listening comprehension as all books come with free mp3 audio (stored for you in the members’ area).

 

Frau Immerfind in Düsseldorf

With these three books, you will learn tenses: Präsens and Perfekt (book 1), conjunctions: denn, aber, weil, obwohl, ... (book 2) and more tenses: Präteritum, Plusquamperfekt, ... (book 3). The first book "Begegnung mit Aimi" is the easiest and for learners from language level A1. The books build on each other but can also be read separately.

 

Verliebt in Tim

In my book "Verliebt in Tim", you can learn the Konjunktiv 2 (subjunctive 2/ er würde kommen, sie wäre, …) and Verben mit Präpositionen (verbs with prepositions/ telefonieren + mit, einladen + zu). This book is suitable for you if you are A2 level.

 

Have fun with der, die and das!

In my three easy German books “der”, “die” and “das” you can learn the genders of nouns in an incredibly easy and efficient way. Each story has either only masculine, only feminine, or only neutral nouns. So you can easily assign the nouns to the respective story and immediately know which gender they have. This is an ingenious way for beginners to expand their vocabulary by about 1000 nouns. For intermediate learners, these stories are perfect for confirming or correcting their knowledge of the gender of German nouns. All nouns are translated into English, Spanish and Japanese and on Quizlet I have prepared word cards for you. For these three books, you should be at least A1 level.

 

A fairytale as an introduction to novels

The “das- book” is a Märchen (fairytale) and also a perfect introduction to reading German novels, because it explains the German past tense - the Präteritum – which is used in almost all German novels. It’s essential if you want to become a competent reader. Are you curious about the books yet?

Then take a closer look, just maybe they’ll change your “German-learning life”!
