German is child's play
German and English are related languages (cousins). This shows itself particularly in the vocabulary. The most basic of English words are of Germanic origin, later many words from French were added, and even later educated words from Latin came into English but are today in everyday use.
If you want to encourage your children to learn foreign languages, e.g. German, show them some very easy words and let them learn them and play with them.
Here is a list of such easy words. German nouns begin with a capital letter.
English: the finger
English: the hand
Here now comes a first list of such related words. More words will be added as time goes by. We also will add more pictures to the words.
If you want a similar page in some other language (e.g. Spanish, French, Italian, or whatever) for your children or your school, please tell us which and we will endeavour to add it to the site. It will cost you nothing. Follow up e-mail by phone call.
