Intermediate Lesson S3 #12 - Are You Up For Homely German Restaurants And Homemade German Food?
Learn German with GermanPod101.com! You have just arrived in Germany and are starving after your long flight. Your German friend suggests a quaint hole-in-the-wall diner for some German cuisine. At this point, you'll eat anything that isn't nailed down. Upon arriving at the German restaurant, you order something that you have never heard of, but your friend swears it is a great German dish. The waiter brings your order very quickly and before your friend can tell you it's spicy, you dig in. Quickly noticing the spiciness, you grab your water glass as your friend snickers at you. When you recover, you reply in German, "Why didn't you tell me this German food was full of spice?" He replies in German, "I was going to but you started eating before I could." Your friend finds your unfortunate spice adventure funny and tells you that he'll warn you beforehand next time. What "next time?"

Absolute Beginner #11 - Leave This German Taxi at Once!
Learn German with GermanPod101.com! You are supposed to meet up with some friends in Germany at a local German café but you hurt your ankle earlier in the week and cannot walk to it. You decide to take a taxi, considering it can pick you up right in front of your German hotel. The German hotel bellhop calls a taxi for you. You hop in the back of the taxi, but the German taxi driver tells you in German, "Come sit up front." You get out of the back and sit up front. You are feeling a little awkward as this is not where you would sit back home...and you don't really see the difference because there is no safety glass between the back and the front. But things are only about to get more uncomfortable...your German taxi driver is hollering at the cars that are holding up the traffic - well, it kind of reminds you of your own city. The German taxi driver begins to weave through the traffic at great speeds as he hollers for the other cars to move. Becoming somewhat worried, you tell the taxi driver in German, "Slow down. I'm not in any hurry." The German taxi driver still barrels through traffic as you hold on to the dashboard. He pulls over in front of the German café, you hand him your money not expecting any change, and stumble out of the cab...just happy to be alive. Learning German with GermanPod101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn German! This German lesson will teach you how to use the German imperative form, or in other words, give German commands. You will also learn about German taxis and what to expect if you hop into one.

Confused, you just stare at him. He laughs and points into the field and repeats the command in English, rolling his eyes at you. Embarrassed, you saddle up and head out as soon as the sun peeks up over the horizon. Within minutes, your friend quietly exclaims in German, "Be really still! Look, across that field...the deer are running and jumping...and the wolves over there are looking for food!" You strain your eyes trying to make out the images in the silvery sunlight, as if you knew what you were looking for. Again, he looks at you rolling his eyes and repeats what he said in English. Only this time, he adds, "I thought you said you learned German before you came here!" You snap back in German, "How was I supposed to know I was going to need to talk about animals in German?" Rolling his eyes once more and laughing, he replies in language, "This IS a vacation...isn't it??" Learning German with GermanPod101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn German!
