A great poem for learning about the parts of speech. I wish we’d found this when my kids were little. Not too late now guys…and in time for your own kids ūüôā I found this on the wonderful German Grammar Pod website. (a wonderful resource for revising German grammar)

A noun’s the name of anything
As school or garden, hoop, or swing.

An adjective describes a noun
As great, small, pretty, white, or brown.

Instead of nouns the pronouns sit
You, me, his, hers, this, that or it.

Verbs tell of something being done,
To read, write, count, sing, jump, or run.

An adverb tells how, where or when,
As slowly, badly, there or then.

Three little words you often see
Are articles: a, an, and the.

Conjunctions join words together,
As men and women, wind or weather.

Prepositions link in nouns
As to or on or at the Downs.

The interjection shows surprise,
As ah! How pretty- Oh! how wise.

The whole are called nine parts of speech,
Which reading, writing, speaking teach

Question: What do you get when you combine; a group of disadvantaged teenagers, lots of junk and lots of energy?

Answer: Hot Schrott! (english: hot junk!)

‚ô• If you follow the link here, you can watch the original clip. (Couldn’t believe I found an English version but personally, the English presenters grate on me).


So where did this come from? Well, I’m always looking for good audio/video stuff to help improve my german language acquisition, and the Goethe Institut have heaps of cool learning materials. I just randomly came across it.

Don’t you think, well, their faces say it all?
