GCSE German #003: Topics – Health (Gesundheit)

Happy Monday (again)! So last week there was no post due to my relocation back to Vienna, but I’m back this week and ready to go!

My plan for the next few weeks is to look at some of these GCSE topics a little more in depth – though they are, of course, quite broad. I’m hoping that I can bring together different resources that are out there on the internet that you can use to practise your German and prepare for your exams. Some of them may include vocabulary and grammar that aren’t as necessary for your exams, but they might have more practical real-life applications. As with anything in this series of posts, if you have any questions or any suggestions for anything you want to see – let me know! I’m happy to hear from you and help you if I can.

So, for this week, we’re going to talk about health!

Let me just talk about me and procrastination for a second: I am a chronic procrastinator. Case in point: I spent all of my final year of uni working hard (procrastinating harder) and kept promising myself ‘this summer I’ll study so many languages’, ‘this summer I’ll read so many books’, ‘this summer I’ll start writing again’… What happened when the summer came around? Nothing. I went to work, I came home, I lounged around and watched Netflix. It’s an easy cycle to drop into – and it’s even easier when it’s not stuff you really want to do.

So, here’s a few methods I’ve found that work for me. Continue reading “GCSE German #002: 5 Ways to Beat Procrastination (And Keep Yourself On Track!)”
