  • How to ask questions in German

    Anybody who has watched the German Sesame Street – Sesamstraße – will most likely remember the theme song: Der, die, das. Wer? Wie? Was? Wieso? Weshalb? Warum? Wer nich fragt bleibt dumm! Der, die, das. Wer? Wie? Was? Wieso? Weshalb? Warum? Wer nich fragt bleibt dumm! Tausend tolle Sachen Die gibt es überall zu sehen. Manchmal muss man fragen, Um sie zu versteh´n. Der, die, das, Wer? Wie? [...] T...

  • German dialects – a game

    During the last nine months I wrote blog posts about 9 different German dialects. I hope you enjoyed them, because now it’s your turn. I found this wonderful German, Austrian and Swiss dialect card on Expedia.de which I was allowed to embed on my blog and which lets you play with some dialects. Click on ‘Entdecken’ and you can then click on various points to hear a German [...] The post German di...

  • German dialects – Bayerisch

    Today’s post is the third and last one about Upper German and we will learn how to speak Bavarian ☺ No, that would be an impossible task, but if you have never heard people speak Bavarian or would like to know more about Bayerisch, or Bayrisch, as it’s also often spelled, then stay here and watch some of the videos I found for you. And a famous story about [...] The post German dialects – Bayeris...

  • German dialects – Fränkisch

    In our 8th blog post of German dialects and second part of Upper German we look at the Franconian language – Fränkisch. Wikipedia says:”Franconia (German: Franken, also called Frankenland) is a region in Germany, characterised by its culture and language, and may be roughly associated with the areas in which the East Franconian dialect group, locally referred to as fränkisch, is spoken. It common...

  • Wir suchen Deutschland – Erzgebirge and Dresden

    Last week I told you about this book I have “Wir suchen Deutschland” from 1948.  So today I share the first two pages with you. Erzgebirge Im Erzgebirge, im Spielzeugland, nimmt Peter seines Sabinchens Hand und läuft mit ihr in den Frühling hinein. Er mag nicht still mehr sitzen – nein! Im Winter haben sie eifrig geschnitzt und bei der Arbeit tüchtig geschwitzt, denn all die [...] The post Wir su...

  • Wir suchen Deutschland – an old children’s book

    When I was born in 1958 my mum was given a birthday present for me by a relative of my grandmother’s. It was a book which she kept for me until I was able to listen to her read the story. She must have read the book to me and let me play with it as the pen drawings on the cover and the slightly ripped pages show. [...] The post Wir suchen Deutschland – an old children’s book appeared first on Ang...

  • How to say sorry in German

    Sometimes I hear students mixing up “Entschuldigung” and “Entschuldigen Sie” by saying “Enschuldigung Sie”. So, today’s post is a post about the different ways of saying sorry. The noun Entschuldigung can be an apology, an excuse, or sorry. If you need to ask somebody a question and are about to approach them (for example when asking for directions or the time) you can either say “Entschuldigung ...

  • How to learn German when you only have 5 minutes

    Last week I challenged you to practise some German every day for a whole year for at least 5 minutes per day. Some people will argue that 5 minutes is not enough, but I believe it is a good time to get into a habit. Imagine if you commit yourself to practise German for one hour every day. For many people it will start well and then [...] The post How to learn German when you only have 5 minutes a...

I am challenging you to learn some German for at least 5 minutes every day this year. If you can spend more than 5 minutes a day, that’s perfect, but if you only have 5 minutes, then that’s okay too.

  • German dialects – Berlinerisch

    Berlinerisch, or Berliner Schnauze, as it’s also lovingly called, is our last post about the middle German dialects. As the name says, Berlinerisch is spoken in Berlin. Anybody learning German who is struggling with the pronunciation of the ‘ch’ in ‘ich’ will love the Berlin dialect, because they say ‘ick’. I can almost hear you sigh and think ‘Why can’t they say this in all of Germany …’ But [.....

  • How to spell your email address in German

      When you start learning German you will come across the alphabet in one of the first lessons and you most likely practise spelling your names or maybe the places you come from.
