Game preparation

1) Place all the cards face down on a flat surface and shuffle them.

2) Then spread the cards out in the middle (on a table or on the floor) with the picture facing down and so that they are not on top of each other.


The youngest player starts the game and turns over any 2 cards. The player reads out what is written on the two cards. Once the player has found a pair, he places the pair with him or her and may turn over 2 more cards. When he does so, he reads out again what he has uncovered. If the cards do not match, then he turns the cards back over in their original place and it is the next player's turn.

2. The game is played clockwise.

3. The player with the most pairs wins the round and everyone learns vocabulary through play!

Game variant 2: This variant is well suited for remedial teaching or when players with English skills play along. For each verb, whether German or English, a matching noun must now be found with which the player forms a sentence. The player can tell whether they have found the right noun by the letter and the number code (E5, D5, etc.) on each card.

D1 sein + E1 to be

D1 die Lehrerin + E1 teacher

Variante 2:

E1 to be + E1 teacher

D1 sein + D1 Lehrer/in

Variante 3:


He/she is a teacher

Er/sie ist Lehrer/in
