Deutsch 101: Stunde 24
- Sign up for times for first oral test. Practice with one or two of the index cards for the first oral test.
- Find these anytime on Canvas > Files > Oral Test Info
- Overhead: Gibt es...?
- Partner*innen: Overhead: "Meinst du, es gibt...?"
- Remember to pronounce the "Z" in "Zombies" like the "zz" in "Pizza" :)
- Aktivität 37 (Partner*innen)
- Note: all these words are plural! ==> The point of the exercise is to circle the features of each word (if there are any!) that show that it's plural
- Practice reading shorthand plural notation using the "Im Geschäft und im Restaurant" and "Die Landeskunde Deutschlands" sections of Kapitel3CEM.docx.
- See the marginal note in the middle of page 113 for an explanation of how the plural notation works
- Note that when an umlaut is indicated, it should go on the nearest a, o, or u at the end of the word, unless there's a double vowel (au), in which case it goes on the "a"
- Note info on p. 113 re: the plural endings for -chen, -heit etc.
- Incidentally, note that the endings -chen (==> das) and -heit, -keit, tät, and -ung (==> die) also determine the gender of those nouns. You can find more such information in the optional homework reading assigned für Stunde 26: "Some Hints on How to Guess Noun Gender."
- Reminder: vocabulary in strikethrough font on the CEM docs will not be tested! [e.g. MUCH of the "Die Stadt" vocabulary]. The Quizlet decks reflect this: they include only the test vocab, and a few "highly recommended" items clearly marked as "NICHT AUF DEM TEST."

- Listen for anything you can understand!
- Flexible time. Some possibilities:
- Your instructor may end class today with a joke that will make sense if you respond "Doch!"
- Remember "Doch!" is used to negate negative statements - e.g. "Die Ohio State Studierenden sind nicht dumm" - "Doch!"]
