German beginner stories (Link in comments)
I read Rumpelstilzchen as a level 11, and I found it fairly easy to read...
All the stories have English translations, so you can check your progress as you go.
Hello, everyone! I learnt German in High school for a few years but I have forgotten most of it by now. I wish to actively contribute and learn from this wonderful, vibrant community. I have made this account today and am still trying to work my way around this site. All help would be appreciated. Danke!
I understood Rumpelstilzchen easily! There was only one tiny bit I couldn't at least guess from the context. Great confidence booster (I took german classes in University and use duolingo just for vocabulary and practice, so my skills don't really represent a "level 11.") Thanks for posting
Thank you so much! You're the first person I ever gave a lingot to. :-) I've been frustrated with some "beginner" German books that were way over my head, but I just read that first chapter of Jack and the Beanstalk without hardly having to check the vocab list at all, and I feel really accomplished!
