German Body Parts with Mr. Potato Head

    Introduction to German Body Parts

    One of my most loved videos is also a very old video. Therefore I decided to reboot this video. I enlisted the help of Mr. Potato Head to help me teach you German body parts vocabulary. This video is a great way to learn German body parts vocabulary while checking your listening comprehension in German. In addition to that, I also included a bunch of verbs you can use with those German body parts.

    For those of you who thought I should have said things slower or wanted to see the images I had in the video in more detail on your own time, I have uploaded the images here so you can see them all in a row.
