Stunde 3: Donnerstag, 5. September

0. If you are still printing out Kapitel 1 bit by bit, what you will need for Stunde 4 is pages 2-31.

1. Sounds of German - Pronunciation Practice:

  • Click on the link for instructions on how to find and use the Sounds of German pronunciation practice on MindTap. There is nothing to submit for this assignment, but this pronunciation practice is SEHR WICHTIG - very important!
  • HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: Click here for some great online resources on Pronunciation, including some YouTube video summaries by a musician who has mastered multiple languages, and a great interactive site from the University of Iowa. There is also a "Pronunciation Guide" on Canvas if you would like a written summary to print out.
  • COME BACK TO THIS ASSIGNMENT WHENEVER YOU WANT TO WORK ON YOUR PRONUNCIATION! Working on your pronunciation early is a GREAT way to build confidence and get more out of class time
  • Make an appointment with your instructor if you notice that you could benefit from extra practice - or ask in class if you just have questions about one or two specific sounds!

  • Click here for information on how to type Umlaute & ß. On a Mac, there are easy shortcuts; on a PC, the easiest option is probably to activate the US International Keyboard and use the shortcuts this makes available.

2. OPTIONAL: Schoolhouse Rock!For an entertaining and nostalgic review of the basics of English grammar (which will help you a lot to understand the grammatical concepts in this course, and your future German courses), review some of the classic Schoolhouse Rock episodes. Even if you know all about grammar, you may want to watch the classic "Conjunction Junction." Newer, but very sweet and particularly helpful for this course, is "The Tale of Mr. Morton," which explains subjects and predicates. Check out the related videos to find more. [Nothing to do with grammar, but the other must-see Schoolhouse Rock classic is "I'm Just a Bill."]

To describe a 'bridge,' which is feminine in German and masculine in Spanish, the German speakers said 'beautiful,' 'elegant,' 'fragile,' 'peaceful,' 'pretty,' and 'slender,' and the Spanish speakers said 'big,' 'dangerous,' 'long,' 'strong,' 'sturdy,' and 'towering.'"

1a. Sehen Sie das Kapitel 5 Video. Klicken Sie hier!

1b. **SUBMIT** When you're ready, click here to download a worksheet on the Kapitel 5 grammar, which you should fill out and hand in!

  • This list of irregular verbs you should know by Test 5 should help you with the worksheet. If a verb is not listed, assume it's a weak verb.
    • Here is another version of the same list, less alphabetical, but grouping the verbs by their patterns of stem-changes. Browse through this list for 5 minutes a day every day until you have a feel for the forms of the strong verbs.
  • In choosing between haben or sein as the auxiliary verb, remember to use sein for changes of location and changes of state, and haben otherwise. In deciding if something represents a change of state, remember what matters is whether the person performing the action changes state: if I kill Kenny, I don't change state ==> Ich habe Kenny getötet. If Kenny dies, he changes state: Kenny ist gestorben.
  • Suggestion: Keep the video lecture open in a separate window while you work on the worksheet, so you can refer back to it as needed!
