Are you tired of boring German textbooks?
The kind of “Hello, my name is …”.
We are. Definitely. We know that learning German is hard work, but why shouldn’t hard work be fun?
That’s why we created Jens and Jakob: a textbook based on a coherent story instead of dull dialogues, which starts very simply, but develops into a fascinating novel. Can’t stop reading? Well then – you will have to learn German!
Jens and Jakob are two sparrows living in Berlin. Although the Berlin Wall has been removed for a long time, their life and the lives of the (human) families they are living close to is still affected by the former separation of the city.

We have carefully selected the most frequently used words in the German language and made sure that the story is primarily made up of them. Separate texts and exercises focus on conversational topics that will prepare you for living in the German speaking world.
