Why the SMOKING RABBIT? Remembering the GENDER of the German for railway track, das Gleis

The character of the MEMORY TRIGGER© picture is a smoking rabbit.

With all our lessons we teach you to remember the gender with the word, because this is very important in German language. In German nouns are either masculine, feminine, or neuter... and there is often no reason as to why!

  • Masculine nouns feature a male main character, and the voice recordings on these courses on their CD's is read by a male native German speaker.
  • Feminine nouns feature a female main character and the voice recordings on these courses on their CD's is read by a female native German speaker.
  • Neuter nouns feature our unique Gender Trigger© - a smoking animal, unique to that Memory Trigger. This way you will never forget a gender.
Whenever you are trying to recall whether a German word is masculine or feminine or neuter, the answer lies in the Memory Trigger picture cartoon. To learn more about learning and remembering the gender of German nouns click on this link.

So in our courses you will encounter all sorts of smoking animals - badgers, horses, hyenas and many more. All helping you to remember the neuter genders of words.
