How to achieve A* in GCSE German and A-Level German?


#1 Get a good understanding of German word order. If you understand where to place a word in a German sentence, you'll avoid some of the most common mistakes among English native speakers. You will find some additional help here: https://www.olesentuition.co.uk/single-post/german-word-order-explained

#2 Learn to conjugate and use regular, irregular, separable verbs and reflexive verbs by looking at logical patterns that apply to them before you commit them to memory.

#4 And with a solid understanding of the cases, you need to turn to pronouns, prepositions and adjective endings to learn how they influence the usage of the cases.
