In our Coffee Cup with Grammar Shot - series we present one single specific grammar topic in a very short time. Enjoy it with a cup of coffee and practice whenever you want with interactive videos, quizzes, writable exercise sheets and games.
Today: the German local prepositions
"Ich gehe nach IKEA / bei Arzt / ins Kindergarten ?"
or how about:
"Ich bin im Strand / zu Shopping-Center / am Theater ?"
Did you always have doubts about local prepositions and feel that you will never be able to learn them all?
Here comes the good news of the day:
You don't have to learn them all! It's enough if you understand the concept, and in the future you will be able to choose the right preposition with your common sense alone.
With the PiSA method, we'll teach you the whole system of German local prepositions and present it on one single paper.
The prepositions can be really fun:
like a good Sudoku!

Hi, I’m Johanna
I studied languages in different countries all over the world and realized: a) Instead of rote learning and repeating back sentences ad nauseam you need shortcuts to grammar rules and practical examples instead; and b) Easy learning is not a brain problem, it is a problem of enthusiasm.
But how to inspire students is not part of any curriculum or taught at any university.
So I started to develop and transmit “my own way” of teaching German. A language, that so many people perceived as beeing so difficult. But they just saw it from the wrong perspective. My courses are built around exactly that idea: change your perspective, change your inner attitude, exchange endless ‘exceptions to rules’ lists for fun and see the difference.
Hi, I'm Linda
It all started as a side job...
While I was studying educational sciences in Vienna, I started working as a German teacher. But what I did not expect was the passion I developed for this profession.
Teaching is a joy and I want to share this joy with my students. To teach language through play, fun and interaction has always been my intention and in Johanna I have found a like-minded person.
