In this lesson we’re tackling a tricky subject for learners of German: word order. In particular we’re looking at where adverbs come “inside the Verbklammer”. For this we’ll be introducing you to a new concept: “Tekamolo”. All will become clear in this lesson.

      I’ve just listened to Season 2 Episode 26. At the end of the lesson I went onto another site ( where they had the following example of Tekamolo (or TKML as they referred to it): –

      Hi CoffeeBreak Languages Team !

      Just listened on Spotify to some of your French and Spanish lessons – GREAT STUFF ..and really nice to listen to !

      Thank you ! 🙂

      (fyi: …found a little typo: “Kommst du jeden Dienstag mit dem Fahrrad zur Deutschklassen?” –> Deutschklasse (no “n”) or “zum Deutschkurs” )
