I originally put together an e-book named Learn German Through Signs which is available to download for free. I decided to try out the format in the form of a video and this is the first one I’ve done.
We go on an imaginary bike ride around Berlin, starting from Berlin Schönefeld Airport. I describe the signs, explain the meanings of the words and highlight some important grammatical points. I say the words aloud in German so you can hear the pronunciation. There are eighteen signs featured in the presentation.
The aim is for you to learn some useful new vocabulary and phrases as well as understanding signs you will encounter on trips to German-speaking countries.
Signs tell us a lot about the culture, atmosphere and design values of the country. German signs have their own look and feel. I’m interested in design and layout and photography is part of what I do. Signs and symbols are the link between language and visuals. We can learn a lot of German by looking at signs.
