Hans: Natürlich Vicki, was brauchst du?
Vicki: Kannst du einige Eier auf dem Heimweg von der Arbeit abholen?
Hans: Kein Problem, wie viele brauchst du denn?
Vicki: Mindestens sechs Eier, bitte.
Hans: Okay, verstanden. Ich bekomme sie auf dem Weg nach Hause.
Vicki: Super, danke Hans!


Click for Learning Tips

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.

Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure. (Videos about Comprehensible Input)

Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.

Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
