Deutsch 101: Stunde 13

A computer/laptop would be best for today’s activities, but a smartphone should also work. In a normal semester, today’s class would take place in a computer classroom, and students would share a computer.

Handout für heute: Internet Vokabeln (or check out this more detailed list of Internetvokabeln)

Outline plan:

  • Partner: scroll through your section’s discussion posts. “Was war Ihr Lieblingspost?”
  • Overhead: “Wie geht’s?
  • Watch only the first 1:00 of “Easy German: Episode 1 – Hallo”
    • Find this via Kapitel 2 Videos zum Spaß > “Easy German: Episode 1 – Hallo”
    • Divide class into “Interviewer” & “Passanten”
    • “Interviewer” ask “Passanten: “Wie heißt du?” “Wie geht’s?” “Was machst du gern?”
  • Go to the Lernen To Talk Show page and watch the intro video at the top of that page. If you like this, watch the videos when you have time via Canvas Home > Links für Deutsch 101 >  The Lernen To Talk Show.
  • Practice Kapitel 2 vocab on Quizlet
    • Try the “Learn” mode.
    • Turn on the audio via “Options.”
  • Compare PONS, dict.cc and Linguee [See links to them in the sidebar of this page, or at the bottom of this page on a smartphone!]
    • Look up e.g. “Buch,” “groß” or “essen” on all three sites and note differences
    • Note the helpful organization of results into categories on PONS
    • Note the multiple “crowdsourced” pronunciation samples on dict.cc

    • Note the sample translations in context on Linguee
    • Time permitting, note the convenient listing of noun plurals and basic irregular verb forms (aß, gegessen) on LEO
      • Even more helpful in this respect: BEOLINGUS!
