CBG 1:03 | Saying where you are from

Update: 2013-02-0622



Welcome to a new episode of Coffee Break German, our new course for beginners in German. In weekly episodes you’ll join native speaker Thomas who’ll be teaching learner Mark in gradual, structured lessons. Our “Cultural Correspondent” Julia and our “Grammar Guru” Kirsten will also join us in each episode to share their knowledge and love of all things German. In this lesson you’ll be moving on to talk about where you come from. You’ll learn:

  • how to ask the question “where do you come from?”;
  • how to answer this question and the names for a number of countries;
  • the difference between the “du” and “Sie” forms in German and what happens to verbs when you change the form;
  • how to greet people in different parts of the German-speaking world.
