There’s a reason I still love picture books (amongst slightly more advanced reading I assure you); pictures help me to remember stories and enhance the language and meaning of the words.
It’s for this very reason that when learning a new language, the most effective way for words to remain implanted somewhere in my long-term memory is to illustrate them.
Two years ago, armed with a below basic (way below – somewhere in the depths of the ocean) understanding of the German language, I volunteered in an Austrian cooking school. Consequently the only German I can now converse with is via ingredient lists and garden produce.
So I’m sticking with that theme and brushing up on my German food-cabulary.
Hopefully it can help you too (in a very limited number of situations-sorry).
To begin with; fruits, vegetables, breakfast and the all important German break-time, coffee & cake. Kostlich!
