I've been taking A1 level classes at Goethe Instuit for about 5 weeks now. Only 2 weeks are left in the course but I still have problems with sentence construction.
I can do the problems in the books just fine, that is, the problems where I don't have to construct sentences from scratch. In fact I'm pretty good at the exercises we do in class. But I have a huge problem forming sentences from scratch. An exercise asking me to describe my house left me blank. And so did when I was asked to write an email.
So while my knowledge of German grammar is fine, and so is my vocabulary, I have big problems constructing sentences.
So does anyone have any tips on how to approach forming sentences and paragraphs?
