German Grammar Visuals


zukunft2 - scaled german grammarMany 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 facebook page.

Creating the materials on this website has taken hundreds of hours of unpaid work, and while 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.



German Grammar Visuals

Some students shudder at the sound of the word “grammar,” mostly because they perceive it to be some esoteric jumble of rules that was purposely created to make their lives miserable. In reality, German grammar is very logical and grammar rules usually serve a clear and distinct purpose. Anybody who likes to construct miniature worlds out of Legos (and who doesn’t?) should love German grammar because building sentences is a lot like building with Legos. So don’t let the “ugly” word “grammar” scare you off. Try to familiarize yourself with the basic building blocks (elements like nouns, verbs, adjectives etc. and their possible functions within a sentence) and you will start to enjoy the challenge of sentence construction.

This German grammar gallery is a way of trying to condense grammar rules in memorable visual form. Of course, there will always be a few exceptions, but they don’t invalidate the rules in general. The German grammar gallery is a work in progress, so check back often to see what new visuals have been added:
