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!
