Video S2 #21 - Did You Know Learning German is Considered a Sport…Sometimes?
Learn German with GermanPod101.com! Now you have friends in Germany…so what are you going to do with them? You are anxious to see some of the city before you have to start school at the German university, and definitely before you have to start working! So you call them up on the phone and ask if they want to spend the day showing you around town. They are excited to do something fun and you all decide to meet at the park around the corner. When you arrive, your friends ask in German, "Do you like to play any sports? We could play around at the park for a while…or maybe head to the gym." You played a lot of sports back home, but as much as you have studied German, you didn't learn how to talk about sports. You attempt to imitate a soccer player kicking a ball, but it takes several minutes before your friends catch on and teach you the German word for soccer. But now they know the game you are playing – charades! The next one you try to act out is a tennis player hitting a ball. And you thought soccer took a long time to guess?! By the time you get through acting out soccer, tennis, golf, and basketball – and they teach you the German words for these sports, you are so worked out you just want a nap. You had no idea learning German could be so exhausting!! Learning German with GermanPod101.com is the most fun and effective way to learn German! This German Video Vocabulary lesson is the first part in a two-part series that will help save you some energy for the fun stuff by teaching you how to talk about sports in German. In this German vocabulary video, you will learn German by watching the video, seeing both English and German translations describing the video, and all while listening to the German translations being read aloud by our native German speakers.
