Many German students find it easier to learn German with pictures. As a visual learner myself, I love associating words with pictures. Consequently, I have started several galleries of visual items that hopefully will help visual and non-visual learners alike to add to their German vocabulary or to better retain vocabulary or grammar. This is a work in progress that I will continue to update as I create new images. These pages contain a lot of visual content, so they may take a little while to load. Please be patient! These pages feature only original visuals I have created, but I will also continue to post similar visual items that I find on other websites on the deutschdrang.com facebook page.
Creating the materials on this website has taken hundreds of hours of unpaid work, and while deutschdrang.com is a labor of love, a small Paypal donation would be greatly appreciated if you have found the materials on this website to be of use to you.
