Or this waitress at a café:
Now I have to get along with these:
I was asked to give a little presentation at the Deutschkolleg. Didn’t know that they wanted to record it. Well, now “München in Bildern - Eindrücke der bayerischen Landeshauptstadt” may be used in some classes.
According to teachers many Chinese learn their presentations by heart instead of speaking freely. The video should give a good example. I hope it will.
Two Chinese girls wanted to take me along but the teacher said he’ll only speak Chinese. They think he might have been afraid his German wasn’t as good as mine. ;-)
A Chinese friend wants to learn German. I’ll help her and so I spent about an hour looking for a good textbook. Most of them teach German that might be spoken in China but certainly not in Germany.
I finally found two good ones and chose the latter because it also features a workbook and another one for listening comprehension.
Here’s a text from a German exam in China. It explains why Germans like women with darker skin while Chinese prefere those with a lighter tone.
But my favorite is still this dialog from a textbook:
A: Hello, Mr. Muller. B: Hello, Mrs. Krug. A: How are you? B: Good, thank you. A: Really? B: Yes, everything’s ok. A: Really? B: Yes, I am very well. A: Aha. B: Wonderful. A: Aaah. B: Yes, life is so beautiful.
