Treasury of words – An easy exercise Posted by on Mar 27, 2013 in Language

I know, I know…learning vocabulary isn´t always fun and sometimes it surely costs some effort to do so. That´s why I don´t want to annoy you. But with this little exercise, you can check your status  pretty good. Even if you don´t know all the words! In my opinion this one is relatively easy, so if you combine a little, you should know most of the solutions.

You just have to check which words fit the beginning of the sentence. That´s all.

Please note that each exercise has two solutions!

1. Markus studiert…

a) Ökonomie
b) Kuchen

About the Author: jan

My name is Jan and I live in the south west of Germany. My profession is being a project manager at a company that creates digital media (first of all internet related things). This is my job since over a decade so I´m quite familiar with the web and its tools. Whereat today almost every school kid does. But that´s one of the main reasons why nowadays there are quasi no more limits in the internet and so it can be used for all imaginable types of things. For example learning languages! And that´s where we are at the moment. I first got in touch with Transparent Language when my family and I used to live in France a couple of years ago. I just had a break from work and by coincidence I produced some cultural videos in French. A few months later the whole blogging thing came up and I was lucky to be a part of it. So now my (second) job is to feed you with information, exercises, vocabulary, grammar and stories about Germany and German language. For being a passionate videographer I´m trying to do this more and more by videos. If you have any wishes or needs of topics that should be treated here, please don´t hesitate to contact me via a comment field. I´m open to your suggestions (as long as they are not too individual) and will try to satisfy your needs.


  1. EP:

    I think German prepositional verbs can be tough at first, too.

    achten auf
    arbeiten an
    glauben an
    rechnen mit
    warten auf
    zittern vor

    As a foreigner, your brain fights against these because you use other prepositional verbs in your own native language (or for the most part you do). And there’s no way around it. You just have to memorize them.
