I had mentioned earlier in my post about the magazine for German learners, Deutsch Perfekt, that the magazine had featured in 2006 (I currently only have a few issues from 2006 but will be ordering a subscription soon!) a series of 100 Learning Tips for better German. One of the tips was to buy some Kühlschrankpoesie for your fridge!
I thought this was a great little tip! What a cool way to add another little extra opportunity to work on your language learning and have fun at the same time. I have an English magnetic poetry kit at home in Canada and have had some fun with it, but sort of forgot about it after awhile, but I have more fun playing with the German one because it’s fun AND educational!
You can mess around with the magnets and make funny little sentences while you are having your morning coffee , make multilingual shopping lists, play a game with any language learning friends to see who can make the longest sentence, or have a laugh when you notice funny sentences left behind by others (If you happen to be lucky enough live with people who speak your target language!)
I found a link from a different company that sells magnetic poetry that has a wide variety of language kits, available in the following languages:
French, Spanish, Kid’s Spanish, Yiddish, German, Italian, Hebrew Alphabet Kit, Kid’s Chinese, Kid’s French, Norsk, Sign language, Svenska (Swedish) and Nederlandse (Dutch)
Not too bad of a collection! The Kid’s Spanish kit has the nouns with the gender and with English on the back side, very cool. I may have to add that to my Christmas list. 🙂
