With the Deutsch-Elfe®-Learning Package you will SKYROCKET your progress in learning German. Why? MNEMONIC IMAGES stay in your memory much better than abstract rules!

After 12 years, the package has been completely revised and expanded.

This eBook (PDF) has been completely revised

Even the old version (sold thousands of times from 2007 to the end of 2019) was a must have for learners and teachers who are seriously looking for learning techniques for German as a foreign language.

Now I have completely revised this eBook. ALL graphics have been redrawn in pro quality, the chapter on the cases has been expanded to include important topics.

This eBook will be delivered in German AND in English at the same time!

This new version is 191 PDF pages (A4) long. It contains super-efficient learning tricks for these important basic topics of German grammar:

R

der, die, das – lever! With my gender-course you can easily memorize the German gender words (der, die, das)

R

Verbs with prepositions. It’s really easy with mnemonic example sentences!

R

Which preposition uses which case? (Accusative, dative, two-way-prepositions)

R

Which verb uses which case? With brilliant mnemonic images and a color system, it stays in your memory much better!

R

Strong / irregular verbs. Memorize the ablaut vowels much easier!

R

Learning vocabulary. Use your mother tongue to learn German words quickly and easily with an ingenious trick. And with mnemonic images you will learn the rules!

R

Adjective declension – it has never been so easy! You get the (probably) first mnemonic declension table from me!

Dear Peter,
I think your learning package is topnotch material!

I’ve been a teacher for 18 years …
If only I´d have discovered your materials earlier, I would have saved so much time.

I think we need  visual learning aids. I often made my students work with colors (pink for feminine, blue for masculine and yellow for neutral), because with the use of colors they could better memorize the gender of the nouns; but this is nothing compared to your materials.

Next week, I’ll implement it at the university to motivate my students even more.

Here is what my customers say

I discovered a new world, and I believe that this method will help me. I’m jus treading the book and find it all super interesting!

Ana Carolina Gomez Bueno, Brasilien

I’ve been waiting a long time for this! Finally somebody who knows that grammar-drums and vocabulary-swotting not really bring much about, and is serious to do something about it as well! I love your techniques and use them now in my lessons. Just like you, I feel very strongly about the simplification of learning languages and the grateful look in the eyes of my students tells me we’re heading in the right direction :)

I really can’t wait to try out your next products and tips. Thanks a lot and above all I wish you success!

Brigitte Schultz, Germany

Teacher of German as a foreign language

Hello Peter,

since I live in Germany, I struggle constantly with  the German language. I can’t say that I’m not a diligent student, but it  just doesn’t stay in my head for a long time. Often I think there’s no point in studying further. I already took part in several language courses and learned a lot by heart every time, but I forget a lot after a while […]

Since I’ve read the practice manual with your technique, I’m astonished how easy it is to memorize everything. The articles are committed to memory a lot faster and afterwards I have no problems anymore to remember it.

Many thanks for your help and I will continue to study using your method!

Tatjana Jirnov, Germany

Dear Mr Heinrich,

the learning package has found its place in our university in the collection of educational aids. The students use it both for their seminars and for their course-designs in the language schools, internships etc.

Many foreign students work with the materials to improve their knowledge of German. Correspondingly, the POWER-Learning-Kit is of  great use for our library and we want to give you our warm thanks.

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Steinmüller, Berlin

Professor for German as a foreign language, Technical University Berlin

Finally I was able to learn the declension of the adjectives. Thanks, thanks, thaanks!

I’m a teacher of Italian (Italian as a foreign language) and I also have a “ Bed and Breakfast“; therefore I need German! And finally it is fun!

At the moment I have a bit of spare time and it is fantastic to work with the e-book!

In the past I’ve worked a bit with mnemotechnics and I was looking for something for German. Your materials are really superb. You explain everything in a simple way, that’s the way one can learn something. Well done, Peter!

Antonio Libertino, Italy

Language teacher

Dear Mr. Peter Heinrich,

I, a future German teacher from Finland, am completely enthusiastic about the Deutsch-Elfe® package. There are great innovative ideas that are useful for everyone. I am very happy that I ordered the learning package!

Heid Herell, Finland

Teacher of Gerrman as a Foreign Language

Hallo, Herr Heinrich,

noch ein Lob: Die Songs zu den Präpositionen kommen bei meinen Schülern super an! Sie lernen die Präpositionen dadurch wirklich wesentlich schneller. Das gemeinsame Singen lockert auf, motiviert, die Schüler sind konzentriert und sie merken sich die einfachen, eingängigen Melodien sehr gut. Ich habe mit diesen Songs bessere Erfahrungen gemacht als mit Merkversen.

Elke Kikelj, Austria

Dear Mr. Heinrich,

I bought your learning package a little over a year ago. I live in the Netherlands and occasionally give classes in ‚German as a business language‘. With all of the teaching materials I have come across so far, I find yours simply brilliant. The material can be conveyed much more simply, more vividly and more colorfully, especially the case. It’s fun to work with.

Maritta Winterling, Netherlands

Teacher of German as a Foreign Language

Your work is very well thought out and designed. It’s undoubtedly a great learning aid for German grammar. And finally a mnemotechnician takes on a wide, important subject area!

The attention to detail is impressive. You can be rightly proud of your work.

Dear Peter,

I happened to find your method on the internet and I am absolutely thrilled! It gives me the opportunity to learn German independently again, just great!
In such a short time I learned a lot, what it took me years at school! Thank you!

Susana Fernandes de Paes, Brazil

Hello, Mr. Heinrich,

after watching your video, I’m already looking forward to studying the learning package. This method fascinates me because I myself am constantly learning languages and also teach German as a Foreign Language here in Italy. Thank you for offering your materials at such an affordable price!

Andra Mio, Italy

Teacher of German as a Foreign Language

Mnemonics from Mr. Heinrich:

I came across Mr. Heinrich’s side by chance, looking for learning slogans for verbs with prepositions, and was very quickly convinced of his method of „learning sentences“ with the „double“ preposition.

Then I read a bit more into his page and decided to buy the learning package and also the scientific work in order to finally be able to give my students (adults, German as a foreign language) more effective methods to handle the difficulties of the German language master.
I was not nearly as convinced of the prepositions of the method of associating cases with colors and images. That seemed too far apart to me. To my astonishment, I found that I myself responded to this method by thinking at certain points: it should now appear in blue or red. That is, only by dealing with the topic, and even initially rejecting it, I have adopted the method and I am now ready to change my lessons accordingly and pass the help directly on to the participants.

What I also really appreciate is Mr. Heinrich’s openness to suggestions for improvement or criticism. As always, if you correct your work yourself, you occasionally overlook errors, and if I alerted you to typing errors, I had an updated version of my material on the PC in no time.

By the way, I would like to mention that a student (B1 level) and a colleague have already decided to buy, and the colleague even started the article method in before the purchase, only after I had made her aware of the page apply their course and thus met with great interest among the participants (both highly qualified and those with little education).

Karin Bauer-Weisenstein

Teacher of German as a Foreign Language

Hello Peter,

since nine weeks I use the methods from your practice manual in the 8th class at the German high school in Tenerife.

I’m delighted! Not only have the students a lot of fun with the different excercises and of course the pictures, but they memorize things incredibly well. The question for the article of „Heiterkeit“ has become completely unnecessary.

I start now with the prepositions and I think, they will have a lot of fun with this as well.

Some students even thanked me. I even use it German courses with native speakers!

Volker Kühl, Germany

Teacher for German as a foreign Language, German college, Tenerife

Hi Peter!

I am totally enthusiastic about the material! It really always says: „You have to learn that by heart …“ And I never had any tricks with me to make it easier for the students.
I already used the article method in one lesson and did a test myself with my students. It really works and my students loved it.

I won’t be able to try the other learning posters or cards until next week, but I’m really looking forward to the feedback from the students. I am very happy that I found your site on the Internet. Teaching will now be a lot easier for me and I thank you for that!
You have really good ideas or pictures that will dissolve the whole „German tangle“ …
Thank you for your imagination !!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Mr. Heinrich,

I bought your book on mnemotechnics and I’m very thrilled with it. It has helped me a lot!

Malgorzata Matyszczak, Poland

Hello Peter,

my students were positively surprised when they saw the various pictures from the learning package on the wall. It led to many questions and a high level of motivation. They were so enthralled that they didn’t want to leave the classroom!

Marta Frommelt, Liechtenstein

Teacher of German as a foreign Language

Dear Mr. Heinrich,

I have used the preposition-songs with 16- and 17-years students and they liked it very much. The mnemotechnic suggestions are brilliant, especially for visual learners. The drawings in the book and on the learning cards are very pleasing and funny.

I think the mnemo-technique for the endings of the nouns is also brilliant!

Alice Gruber, UK

Teacher of German as a foreign Language, Godalming College

Your book is a compact work, for everybody who wants to enhance his learning potential effectively. All the mnemotechnics are explained and implemented by means of elaborate examples. It contains the result of  many years of hands on experience. Everybody who’s interested should take the time for it, because the effectiveness and thus a learning improvement are guaranteed.

I used mnemotechnics myself during my studies as a German teacher and I became the best student of the faculty (although I’m almost 40 years old). This e-book constitutes a basis for both teachers and students of languages, and it should be read and implemented. I congratulate you with this enormous work.
