GERMAN ARTICLES TABLE SONG
ONE GERMAN GRAMMAR TABLE TO RULE THEM ALL
There is only one German articles table that you need to learn to master many parts of the German grammar and that is the table with the endings of the definite articles in all four German cases. Those endings can be used with all other articles like e.g. dies-, welch-, mein-, ein-, kein and for the strong article endings (see my A2 German grammar video course to quickly and clearly understand the logic of those and for a really neat technique that will help you mastering them).
Songs with a repetitive melody are very helpful for memorizing information that otherwise does not make any or much sense. The articles are also very abstract and therefore not easy to digest. With a spoonful of sugar you will get a grip of them quickly and also be able to recall them easily when needed.
A SONG WRITTEN FOR YOU THE GERMAN LEARNER
My lovely associate Maggie Jabczynski has composed a song especially for you, and also put a beautiful logic into this song, which unfortunately will only be visible for you if you are a musician or at least able to read notation (see end of this post). But don’t worry. You won’t have to understand this logic to benefit greatly from this song. It’s jus a neat gimmick.
If you are a musician and know what I have been writing about above, maybe you’d like to try to put your findings in simple words, so that everyone is able to understand it.
PAY ATTENTION TO THE LOGIC BEHIND THE GERMAN ARTICLES TABLE
Now, go and watch the video. The song starts at approximately minute 5:30 but I strongly recommend that you take the time to listen to my instructions beforehand. I wish you success with your German learning and hope that you benefit greatly from the smarterGerman approach and the German articles table song.
