Ace German Affixes

Master the most common German prefixes and suffixes in the next 30 days and "unblock" your German with our January challenge!

Start Date: January 1st

Level: A2/B1 (Upper Beginner / Lower Intermediate)

Do you find yourself scratching your head when you see words like nach, auf, vor or zu at the end of German sentences?

Do words with endings like -bar, -haft, -lich and -voll throw you off and leave you guessing their meaning?

If you struggle with the prefixes and suffixes in German, then I’ve got news for you…

You’re not alone

In fact, German learners the world over have a hard time getting to grips with this ghastly grammar topic…

  • Remembering out what on earth prefixes and suffixes are in the first place
  • Choosing the right prefix or suffix to use to express yourself accurately
  • Knowing whether a prefix is inseparable (goes with the verb) or separable (goes at the end of the sentence) when using it with a verb
  • Knowing how a suffix determines the gender of the word you want to use

And doing all of that while face-to-face with a native German speaker!

  • Lassen, verlassen, zulassen, unterlassen, auslassen, etc.
  • Kommen, entkommen, überkommen, hereinkommen, etc.
  • (The list goes on…)

What on earth do any of these German verbs mean? Are the prefixes separable or inseparable? And what’s the difference between them anyway?

It’s easy to feel like you'll never truly get to grips with German affixes. It's just one of those things you'll have to live with, right?

Well, not so fast...

Help is at hand!

I’ve created a unique 30-day challenge, "Ace German Affixes", that will help you learn and internalise the German prefixes and suffixes, so you can unlock the ability to express yourself more fluently in German and use the kind of complex “advanced” vocabulary affixes give you.

No more boring grammar textbooks.

No more memorising rules.

And most importantly...

No more frustrating German affixes mistakes when you chat with your German-speaking family and friends.

Introducing the January Challenge:

"Ace German Affixes"


Here’s how the challenge works.

The challenge is based on an exciting original story in German that develops over the 30 days of the challenge.

This is a brand new story, written exclusively for this 30-Day Challenge.

We’ve created the story to be jam-packed with tons of examples of the most important German prefixes and suffixes.

Every day, you’ll receive one new chapter of the story, along with an insightful video lesson and simple exercises to help you understand how these German affixes work in the story.

It'll take you about 15 minutes each day.

All you have to do is show up every day…

Over the course of the month, the daily immersion will help you absorb the most common German affixes naturally, until they just “sound right” and you can use them instinctively and confidently to bring life to your spoken German.

The result is that you'll be able to speak and understand German confidently without worrying about making mistakes or getting stuck for words.

You’ll be able to speak German with more freedom and fluency, because the affixes you need will already be where you need them - on the tip of your tongue!

Here's What's Included...

The concept is beautifully simple!

Every day, for 30 days, you’ll get:

  • One 250-word chapter of our German story (jam-packed with examples of essential German affixes in context)
  • The written story plus audio book (so you can read or listen...wherever you are!)
  • An insightful daily video lesson with our instructor, Svetlana. (She'll explain the different verbs used in the story)
  • A short daily practice exercise (to help you remember what you’ve learned)
  • Discussion with dozens of fellow challengers in our interactive Facebook group (so you can discuss the story and get answers to questions).

We’ve carefully structured the entire 30 days, so all you have to do is turn up and get stuck in!

Frequently Asked Questions

What level is the challenge for?
Both the story and the lesson content is aimed at A2-B1 level. (That's high-beginner to low-intermediate). In other words, this is for you if you've been studying German for a little while (or maybe a long while!) and can understand at least some German, but struggle to use German affixes in a comfortable and natural way.
How can I access the challenge?
Mobile, desktop, laptop, tablet... The challenge is super user-friendly and you'll be able to log on from anywhere!
What exactly will I learn? How will this challenge help me?
During this challenge, we'll focus on German affixes. You'll see some of the most essential and useful German prefoxes and suffixes recycled over and over throughout the story. This means you'll learn how German affixes work to the point where they are effortless and automatic and you can use and understand them instinctively. You'll get daily lessons from Svetlana, where you'll learn specifically how and why certain affixes are used in each example. This means you'll develop an intuitive and native-like understanding of how to use them yourself.
What if it's too hard, or my level is too low?
To make the challenge achievable, we've kept each chapter short - only 250 words! This means that you'll be able to easily make it to the end of the chapter each day, even if it does take you a little longer. However, the daily video lessons will give you all the support you need, as you'll have clear, professional explanations of how the affixes are used in the story. This means that, even if you're really unsure about German prefixes and suffixes right now, just by watching and studying the daily videos, you'll learn to think about them like a native speaker by the end of the challenge. If I had my way, this is the only way students would ever learn German!
What's so special about this "StoryLearning" method anyway?
Most German students try to learn affixes through rules and memory tricks. This doesn't work, and is extremely stressful for you as a learner. Why? Because there are tons of affixes to learn and it's impossible to hold them all in your head at the same time while you're speaking if you rely on memory tricks. It's also not a natural approach ... native speakers don't expand their vocabulary with rules, after all! With the "Ace German Affixes" challenge, you'll learn through example and context, just like native speakers do! The magic of learning through story is that your main focus is actually not on the grammar or learning new affixes... you concentrate on understanding and enjoying the story! As you're reading and listening to the story, the prefixes and suffixes will begin to lodge themselves subconsciously in your brain. It doesn't happen right away - in fact it may take a couple of weeks for you to feel the real effects. But by the end of the 30 days, you'll have a native-like command of German affixes that will amaze you.
I'm not sure I can commit for 30 days
Your daily commitment is only 15 minutes. This is because the principle of the challenge is that "little and often is the best way to learn". 15 minutes is a pretty manageable amount of time to devote to your German. You can fit it in comfortably: • before breakfast • during your lunch break • after dinner • ...even while waiting for the bus! The power is in the consistency - working at it for a short time every day. You'll be amazed at the huge progress you make from simply showing up every day to work on one area of your German! Remember, you get the audio of the story, as well as the text, so you can easily take part and keep up wherever you happen to be!
What if I am unhappy with the challenge?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with the challenge, contact me at any point during the challenge and I'll issue you full and prompt refund.
How long do I have access to the course after the end of the challenge?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
