5-Day-Challenge A2

Oops, you’re too late :-(. But don’t worry. I run the “Eine Amerikanerin in Berlin” Challenge regularly. If you would like to be notified when the next round starts, please fill in the form below. I’m looking forward to connecting with you. 

Have you ever read a story in German and were proud of yourself that you understood it well? Did you also listen to the story and felt that your listening comprehension was improving? That’s awesome.


But guess what’s missing? Right,  you read and you listen but you don’t speak and you probably don’t write, either. Let’s change this! Join me for a free 5-day challenge. You will get one of my stories and based on this story, we will work on your reading, listening, writing and speaking skills.

5-Day-Challenge A2

How does this work?

Every day, you will receive a part of the short story “Eine Amerikanerin in Berlin”, no more than 150 words per day. You will read and listen to the text, and you will get bite-sized tasks to learn and practice new grammar or vocabulary from the story.  We will have a private Telegram chat where you can post your answers for feedback and ask questions. 

How much time do I need to invest?

You will need about 20-30 minutes a day to complete the challenge successfully. About half of your tasks are based on audios that you can listen to while you go to work or do your dishes. At the end of the week, you will have mastered new language bits, both vocabulary and grammar, and will be able to use them actively. 

What level do I need to complete the challenge successfully?

The challenge is most suitable for advanced beginners and low-intermediate students (A2/B1) . If you’re a beginner (A1), you may still participate in the challenge but will probably need more than 20-30 minutes. If your level is B1+ or higher, you will probably find the challenge easy, but may nevertheless enjoy it and learn some new things. Feel free to give it a try.

Some Words about me

I’m Daniela and I started to write short stories and graded readers for beginner and intermediate students of German in 2021. Being an enthusiastic language learner myself, I love to create materials that I would like to use myself, a mix of interesting content and grammar in context. I also believe in a combination of independent learning and feedback from a teacher plus interaction with other. This is what I’m offering you.
