German Language Game: nicht nur ... sondern auch

German Quick Language Game: nicht nur ..., sondern auch ... This translates into the English phrase pair "not only..., but also..." (called a 'correlative conjunction').

In this fun and easy game, you'll learn this phrase pair and combine it with "brauchen" - followed by a masculine, a neuter, and a feminine direct object. You'll come across this German phrase pair quite often in longer German sentences. 

Note that the article for a masculine direct object changes from "der" to "den."

And don't forget: You can practice German online for FREE with our 36-Scene German 1 Story: "Michael in Deutschland" and our 72-Scene German 2 Mystery Story Sequel: "Blüten in Berlin?" (And - if you already know that "Blüten" means blossom in German - you'll learn that Blüten has still another meaning...). Just login HERE.

Not everyone will agree with Benny Lewis', the Irish Polyglot's statement "Why German is easy!". But, if you are serious about learning German - and even before you buy or subscribe to any expensive courses (except, obviously,'s German 1 and German 2 courses, which are FREE!) you may want to learn more about Benny's approach.
