3 ideas on how to use audiobooks to help you learn German:

1. You could listen to Michael Kohlhaas while you read it and then watch the film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year.

2. Listen to short sections of a book until you can picture every word in your mind. Then listen to the same section again and write it out by hand. This functions like the dictations we do in lessons.

3. Write out all the simple past verbs you hear in an audiobook like Die Verwandlung and test yourself on the infinitive and the present perfect participle. How many can you get without looking them up in a dictionary or verb chart? (Can you conjugate all the verbs as well?)

Which one of these three ideas will you try? Comment below and tell us how you've used audio materials to learn German.
