Video S2 #15 - Bear Through This German Video Lesson and Learn Awesome Forest Animal Vocabulary!
  Learn German with GermanPod101.com! As part of your German "Forest Animal" unit, today your class is taking a walk through the forest in Germany to gather information for a report you will have as homework tonight. Your teacher hands out a list of "things to look out for" - written entirely in German! Not being able to make out some of the German words on the list, you try to partner up with someone, but everyone seems to have turned it into a competition to see who can find things first. Suddenly, a classmate screams out in German, "I found one!! Look, that raccoon is cracking and munching peanuts!" Everyone moans, knowing that classmate is now in the lead, but you strain your neck, struggling to see what in the world she found. Finding nothing as the group moves on quickly, you jot down as much as you can remember - you will just have to look it up when you get home. Ugh. You are startled as another classmate cries out in German, "I know what the eagle eats! It's swooping down for fish!" Your fellow classmates cry out in unison, "Ahhh!!" as you again jot down the German words you do not recognize. It's too bad you can't enjoy this hike through the beautiful forest. But what's worse is that before you can even BEGIN your report tonight, you have to find out what all this even means!!!

Hesitating, you reply in German, "I had thought of some good answers beforehand, and I used most of them, but still...I'm not sure."
