Today we learned about how to describe our family members to other people and ask others if they are married (It’s gonna important if you want to find a boyfriend/girlfriend here :P). It is a lot in one day for us beginners, but I’m surprised by how much I remembered when I was doing my homework. I think it has to do with the flexible teaching style of our teacher. His English is great but he only speaks German in class along with his gestures. He also encourages student-to-student interaction—we often have to get up and hold a conversation with my peers in German using what we learned. He also trained us to get useful information out of a trunk of hard text and an authentic German audio. I wirklish (really) feel like I’m learning a lot and also finde (find) myself enjoying the classes.
I went to buy some German sausage in the supermarket close to my host family and cooked it for dinner. It is really tasty and there were so many different kinds of sausage, too—there was a whole section for sausage in the market. I probably won’t be able to try every one of them in the month I’m here as much as I’d love to.
So, Gute Nacht (Good night) ~~
