German Language Game: The Berlin Wall

This German Quick Language Game lets you practice some 12 German terms that relate to the Berlin Wall. Use them for your next conversation - in German - about the Berlin Wall, which was built in August 1961 and fell in November 1989.

Most Germans from that time - and many Americans too - remember where they were when they heard the surprising news that the Berlin Wall was being torn down. That point in time is usually referred to as "die Wende" (the turning point) in German.

You can also read our Blog: The Berlin Wall and Memories of a Frightened Teenager..., with some more about "Die Mauer" and memories when I returned from East Berlin in 1965.

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, that learning languages is easy. But, if you are serious about learning German, you may want to hear more about Benny's approach by clicking on his explanation of "Why German is easy!". Just using a couple of his language hacks consistently will accelerate your progress!

We recently discovered a very effective app for learning German: MosaLingua. There currently are iOS and Android apps, with a MosaLingua Desktop App for PC, Mac and Linux just out. You can also try out the "Lite" version for FREE! We like the apps a lot and are currently using them ourselves. Read Ulrike's Review HERE.
