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.
Every language has its fair share of idiomatic usage, and German is no exception. Some idioms have historic origins, some are simply logical or practical, and many are just plain old fun. Idioms are not necessarily a required element for communicating ideas in a language, but they add a lot of spice and authenticity to a language. They also are generally very difficult to translate in a literal sense because they tend to be culturally unique. If you want to sound like a true German native, however, you will have to master using–or at least comprehending–German idioms.
Here is a collection of images to help you understand and remember some specific German idioms:
