German beginner stories (Link in comments)

http://www.ukgermanconnection.org/?location_id=922

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.

Viel Glück!

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!

This is a great link, thanks for posting! Children's stories will be a great help for my German. Danke!

Thanks for posting it. I have started German only for a few days but it is already saved on my favorite list. So when I develop my skills I'll have something to read


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rose_Senpai

Thanks! This is awesome! I think this will help me a lot as I'm learning German. ^.^


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeutscheMaus

Good luck to all of you with your German! I will wish myself good luck too because I am starting to get some harder lessons, eeek! :)

This is great, thanks. It'll definitely motivate to get up to Level 11 at the least.

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeutscheMaus

I am the opposite...my (very beginner) skills do not feel like I am level 12. I feel like I am at level 2 on a bad German day. :) Ahh, so much to learn...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeutscheMaus

Agreed ajapam, I love the site too. It is a very nice confidence booster, as you said, and so nice to have the audio while I read the story. The word list that comes with each story is a terrific help too!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bvogel1

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!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deids92

Danke! Glad it helps!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnaSrsh

Thank you very much! Bookmarked :D

I'm sorry, but where are the translations? I can only find a small vocabulary list at the end of each tale.

Anyway, great place to practice some reading!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deids92

There should be a little popup on the bottom of the page asking if you want to translate it to English:) at least that is what shows up on my phone


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeutscheMaus

Oh wow, I didn't even realize you could access an English translation of these stories! I was just happy to see the children's stories WITH audio and a helpful word list. Again, great site Bacon Raptor...as you can see by the jillions of posts, this one is a hit. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deids92

Danke! Glad everyone likes it!
