German Compound Words for Beginners

German Compound Words for Beginners, created by Jen Bjornstad, PhD, is an Anki deck for brand-new learners of German or for anyone interested in languages and how they work.

The deck is made up of 80 compound nouns in German that are easy and fun for speakers of English to guess, for example, die Sonnenblume (sunflower), der Eisbär (polar bear), die Milchstraße (Milky Way).

By studying these words, you’ll learn the basic nouns the compounds are made up of: die Blume (flower), der Bär (bear), die Straße (street). You’ll also get a sense of how German compounds are created, and you’ll start to see patterns in the ways German and English are related to each other.

Note: If you’re interested in using this deck for teaching purposes, visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store for related materials.

Xefjord’s Complete Language Series was created with the mission of providing free language learning courses for every known living language. Xefjord was driven to start this project because he believes that every culture is inherently valuable and important to our humanity and global well being, and that languages are the gateway towards preserving and promoting those cultures.

Because of its popularity, ease of use, and open source nature Xefjord decided to create all his courses on the digital flashcard program Anki. These courses were created with the purpose of giving learners a survival level introduction to their language of choice while also granting them the tools to continue learning with and expanding upon the functionality of Anki afterwards.

There is only one option for learning German.

This German course teaches German as used in the country of Germany.
