Please let me correct one little mistake.
“Ich bin ein krankenschwester” should be “Ich bin eine Krankenschwester”.

Hello Alan,

Thank you very much for your comment😄

We appreciate your positive feedback and will look into it in the future:thumbsup:
Please allow me to correct one little mistake that I found. It should be “Ich bin ein Arzt” instead of “Ich bin Ärtze”.

Let us know if you have questions regarding any of our lessons.

haha - some amusing choices. I can see the relevance of some (e.g. bounty hunter) for television but others (Lion tamer) are seemingly random…

Ich bin Ärtze

I’d love to see the following added in case people need to seek help: police officer, nurse, doctor as well as physiotherapist in case of need for treatment.

Other ones that spring to mind: teacher, programmer, fireman, writer, artist, driver
