It clearly is a perfect match for young German learners. The preparations are also quite satisfactory- pronunciation, translation everything.

I have completed this deck – it got me started for my German vocab, I knew nothing when starting but used this deck along side ‘DW Nicos Weg’ and managed to get to a solid A2 in 5 months.
Really useful – I appreciate the effort that went into making it.

Literally the best pack. Good quality audio and very comprehensible example sentences that make remembering words very easy.

on 1628335838

This is a wonderful deck.

My only request is to add tags (Kapitel 4, 5 ,6…etc).

I’m doing the Goethe A1/A2 online course at the moment. Having tags would allow me to filter the deck and only revise words that I have already covered.

Comment from author

Hi there, unfortunately I haven’t done the Goethe A1/A2 online course so I don’t know what chapters the words appear in.

Very helpful so far–I’ve only used it for two days, but it is already improving my knowledge! The practice sentences are good because they help you learn the context but also extra words 🙂

High quality content !! Thank you for your efforts, thank you for your passion, thank you for your time

I ll do my best to honour it



Thank you so much for all of your hard work, this is a total life-saver for me. I have tried to make a deck from this exact wordlist but it’s definitely not easy work, I want to thank you again for doing all this for me. New: “Er arbeitet mit Vorsicht.” – difference between “Vorsicht” as “caution” or “attention” and the exclamatory “Vorsicht!” (“Watch out!” or “Careful!”)

“Mit Vorsicht” is less idiomatic than “Er arbeitet vorsichtig.”, but it would not appear odd in everyday speech.

> dorther

This probably varies from region to region: Between the Moselle river and Cologne, in my experience, this is a very unual word. People in this area would usually say “von da” or “von dort” or “von da her” or “von dort her”. I would deem it unusual on TV and radio, too. Perhaps it’s more common in Southern regions.
It is so odd for me that now, as I look at it again, I perceived it as an English word for a second: /dɔɹðəɹ/

> Removed: “Sie haben Zimmer Nummer zwölf.” – would normally be written “Zimmernummer zwölf”, but this didn’t add anything over the “Hausnummmer” example.

This is not true. An internet search engine quickly returns plenty of results for “Zimmer Nummer” and “Zimmer Nr.”. This is because “Haus Nr. 12” and “Hausnummer 12” (and the same with Zimmer instead of Haus) do not mean the same thing. For example, “Gehört Haus Nr. 12 Ihnen oder Ihrem Vermieter?” can be paraphrased as “Are you the owner of the house which is designated by the number 12, or is your landlord the owner?”. In contrast, “Gehört Hausnummer 12 Ihnen, oder Ihrem Vermieter?” can be paraphrased as “Have you been assigned the number 12 which designates a house, or has your landlord been assigned the number 12?”.

I’m going to recommend the deck to my friends who are learning German.

Comment from author

Thank you for the feedback!

> Vorsicht
In the original Goethe Institute wordlist the sentence was to demonstrate the noun “die Vorsicht”, hence avoiding “Er arbeitet vorsichtig.”. I have amended the explanation of this change.

> dorther
I’m not sure if I’ve heard it before, but since the G.I. included it I was reluctant to remove it.

> Zimmer Nummer zwölf
Thank you for explaining in detail – I don’t think the distinction is made so often in English. I have added this back in. 🙂



Great work and effort, dearly apprecited



Thanks a lot, nice deck.



Very dedicated work. Thanks for putting this together!



Clearly a labour of love for the author. A wonderful deck.
