and welcome to week five of our German Summer Bootcamp and I know what you’re thinking.
“How long is this freaking bootcamp? I want to read about a word again.”
Well, I have good news for you. Today, is actually the penultimate workout session. So you almost made it.
Next time, to wrap things up, we’ll do an exercise for cases again.
And today, we’ll return to time land once again and do a little exercise for
So we’ll pratice saying stuff like two days ago, or in three weeks, or since yesterday or on Sunday.
This exercise is actually quite easy in comparison to the word order stuff we did last time. A2 students should be able to do okay.
But also if you’re an advanced learner, I recommenend you give it a shot. I mean… just because you think you know this stuff, doesn’t mean that you do ;).
And there are a few little things hidden that might be new to you. And you can of course do the translations for extra training.
So, is everybody ready?
Great, then let’s jump right in…
As usual, I’ll give you a statement or dialogue in English and you can translate it to German with the main focus being the proper time preposition.
Or, if translation is too difficult, you can click the little “?”, and you’ll get the German version with a gap and you just need to fill in the blank.
The solutions are in the audio and you can show then by clicking the circle O.
And if you want, you can type your version into the textfield so you can compare it with my translation.
Oh and I didn’t say it the last time, but the idea of this type of exericse is actually that you do it several times over a few days. Unless you get all correct, of course.
The first time is to find your weak points. Note down the stuff you didn’t know… on a piece of paper, with a pen, like in the olden days. Yes, generation Y and Z. You too. And yes, millennials, especially you!
So yeah… note down your weak points and then come back to the workout again a day later. Until you can just read the proper solution off the page.
Cool. So now without any further ago…uhm… I mean ado, let’s start. Viel Spaß :)
“That was decided many many years ago by the unicorn elves.”
“Das wurde ____ vielen vielen Jahren von den Einhorn-Elfen so entschieden.”
“Das wurde vor vielen vielen Jahren von den Einhorn-Elfen so entschieden.”
And, how was it? How did you do? Was it difficult or relatively easy? As always, I’m super curious for your feedback and for all your questions. So hop right over to the comment section and let’s talk.
I hope you all had fun and learned something. Have a great week and see you next time for the grand finale of the summer bootcamp. Tschau :)
