Ok, so after two years since my German 1 class, I decided I wanted to take German 2. I knew I was going to be behind but, I'll admit it, being what feels like so far behind in a language makes me a little frustrated. I understand the grammar without any problems and at this point it's just a matter of remembering the irregular verbs and what case goes with which prepositions--so, like I said, I don't have any questions to be answered.

My point? I have no functioning vocabulary whatsoever. It's limited to the very basics, and obviously my reading comprehension is a little better but not even much.

So my question is if anyone knows sites or anything that might help me with my vocabulary? I'm already going to go back through the old chapters in my textbook, have some flashcards, etc., but those things are usually temporary fixes for me. Does anyone know of any games or can recommend some great music? Or a place with children's stories I can read? Any other methods you use to pick up vocabulary? Thanks in advance!
