DIALOGUE
M: Hast du schon Hunger?
B: Ja. Was kochst du heute?
M: Wir haben noch Suppe von gestern, also koche ich Suppe.
B: Suppe?? Ich habe großen Hunger. Denkst du nicht, dass Suppe zu wenig ist?
M: Vielleicht. Vielleicht ist Suppe zu wenig.
B: Haben wir noch etwas anderes zu essen?
M: Hmm, ich gucke mal.
Judith: Now read slowly.
M: Hast du schon Hunger?
B: Ja. Was kochst du heute?
M: Wir haben noch Suppe von gestern, also koche ich Suppe.
B: Suppe?? Ich habe großen Hunger. Denkst du nicht, dass Suppe zu wenig ist?
M: Vielleicht. Vielleicht ist Suppe zu wenig.
B: Haben wir noch etwas anderes zu essen?
M: Hmm, ich gucke mal.
Judith: Now with the translation.
M: Hast du schon Hunger?
M: Are you hungry yet? [Do you have hunger?]
B: Ja. Was kochst du heute?
B: Yes. What are you cooking today?
M: Wir haben noch Suppe von gestern, also koche ich Suppe.
M: We still have yesterday's soup, so I'm cooking soup.
B: Suppe?? Ich habe großen Hunger. Denkst du nicht, dass Suppe zu wenig ist?
B: Soup?? I am very hunger. [I have big hunger.] Don't you think that soup is too little?
M: Vielleicht. Vielleicht ist Suppe zu wenig.
M: Maybe. Maybe soup is too little.
B: Haben wir noch etwas anderes zu essen?
B: Do we have anything else to eat?
M: Hmm, ich gucke mal.
M: Hmm, I'll have a look.
CULTURAL SECTION
Judith: Chuck, do you like the way we do soup in Germany?
Chuck: One thing I like is that you generally have bread in the side.
Judith: Yeah I like German bread. That’s one thing you can really be proud of here in Germany.
Chuck: It’s pretty much always buttered with the soup isn’t it?
Judith: Yes. Do you know any other typical German foods?
Chuck: Sausage like, when you get the big sausage on the plate and you have some really spicy mustard on the side.
Judith: Yeah sausages are one of the specialties here and potatoes, you can find it in almost every dish and cabbage.
Chuck: In almost every form.
Judith: Yeah cabbage. All kinds of cabbage like [Sauerkraut], of course, [Rotkohl] I think that’s red kale in English, [Grünkohl] Green kale [Kohlrabi, Rosenkohl it’s Brussels sprouts, I hate those but all the rest, sure]
Chuck: Yeah sometimes I joke that typical German dishes have some kind of meat with sauce on it and then some kind of potatoes and then maybe some pudding or Yogurt for dessert.
Judith: But you’re forgetting the vegetables…
Chuck: Ah yes…
Judith: Almost everything comes with vegetables.
Chuck: Yeah or salad.
Judith: Or you can have a potato salad. There is also [Knödel] dumplings that are made from potatoes but they don’t taste like potatoes at all.
Chuck: Yeah it is actually interesting. We once had a guest come over who didn’t like potatoes at all and he was surprised to find that he liked most of the potato dishes that they have here. I think it’s the way they are spiced with the sauce in them.
Judith: Yeah oh! And there is also potato pancakes [Reibekuchen]
Chuck: Uhoo somewhat similar to Hash browns I would say.
Judith: Of course there are other specialties especially in different regions.
Chuck: But you forgot to mention what you typically eat on [Reibekuchen]
Judith: Apple sauce.
Chuck: Yeah anything else?
Judith: Sugar wheat syrup. That’s also regional specialty. And of course, you mustn’t forget schnitzel. I believe you are a big fan of that.
Chuck: Yeah schnitzel
Judith: That’s a type of breaded meat.
Chuck: And it’s typically eaten with either Bratkartoffeln or fries.
Judith: And then of course, Germany has adopted some foods from the immigrants. I mean first here were the Italians and they brought Pizza and Pasta you can find everywhere and I mean everywhere.
Chuck: Yeah.
Judith: And the Turks brought Doner kebab and the Greeks brought [Gyros]. Those are the three most common types of fast food apart from Hamburgers and fries and alike.
Chuck: And just like you can find in pretty much every other country, there is also Chinese food.
Judith: Yeah. Very common.
Chuck: Pretty readily available.
Judith: But Europeanized.
Chuck: Yeah of course. Alright, enough talk about food. You are making me hungry. Let’s take a look at the vocabulary for this lesson.
VOCAB LIST
Judith: The first word is [Haben]
Chuck: To have
Judith: [Haben, haben] Next [Hunger]
Chuck: [Hunger]
Judith: Hunger, hunger. Next [Heute]
Chuck: [Today]
Judith: [Heute, heute]. Next [Noch]
Chuck: Still, yet or another.
Judith: [Noch, noch] Next [Suppe]
Chuck: Soup
Judith: [Suppe, Suppe, die Suppe] this is feminine. Next [Groß]
Chuck: Tall or big.
Judith: [Groß, groß] Next [Zu]
Chuck: Too as in too much.
Judith: [Zu, zu] Next [Wenig]
Chuck: Little
Judith: [Wenig, wenig] Next [Vielleicht]
Chuck: Maybe
Judith: [Vielleicht, vielleicht] Next [Anderer]
Chuck: Other or another.
Judith: [Anderer, anderer] Next [Essen]
Chuck: To eat.
Judith: [Essen, essen] Next [Gucken]
Chuck: To look or watch.
Judith: [Gucken, gucken] Next [Mal]
Chuck: Have a, colloquial particle for doing something in a leisurely way.
Judith: [Mal, mal]
Chuck: Let’s have a closer look at the usage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Judith: The first word we will look at is [Mal]
Chuck: When you are talking to a German, this word will come out so often in conversation but it’s hard to translate.
Judith: I can’t think of a good translation myself.
Chuck: I think it could be roughly translated as sometime. When you add it to a sentence, you reply that there is no hurry.
Judith: Or that something is done in a leisurely way.
Chuck: Judith, could you give us some example sentences?
Judith: Of course. For example, [Komm mal bitte]
Chuck: Please come when you can.
Judith: [Bitte guck mal wer an der Tür ist]
Chuck: Please have a look who is at the door.
Judith: Or in the sentence, that’s not a request. [Ich bin mal in New York gewesen]
Chuck: I have been to New York some time.
Judith: Alright. Now let’s move on to the grammar.
LESSON FOCUS
Judith: The focus of this lesson is the irregular verb [Haben].
Chuck: To have.
Judith: This verb came up several times in today’s dialogue. For example in [Wir haben noch Suppe von gestern]
Chuck: We still have yesterday’s soup. [Haben] to have is one of the most important German verbs. It’s used not only to talk about possession but also to form other tenses as we shall see later.
Judith: And it’s used in a non literal sense in various expressions such as [Hunger haben]
Chuck: To be hungry.
Judith: [Durst haben]
Chuck: To be thirsty.
Judith: [Zeit haben]
Chuck: To have time.
Judith: And others. Unfortunately [Haben] is an irregular verb. Here are the forms for present tense. [Ich habe]
Chuck: I have
Judith: [Du hast]
Chuck: You have
Judith: [Er hat]
Chuck: He has
Judith: [Wir haben]
Chuck: We have
Judith: [Ihr habt]
Chuck: You have plural
Judith: [Sie haben]
Chuck: They have or you have singular and formal.
Judith: Alright.
OUTRO
Chuck: That just about does it for today. Testing yourself is one of the most effective ways to learn.
Judith: That is why we have three types of quizzes.
Chuck: Vocabulary, grammar and content specific.
Judith: Each quiz targets specific skills.
Chuck: And together these quizzes will help you master several fundamental skills.
Judith: You can find them in the learning center at
Chuck: Germanpod101.com. Practice using the learning center until next week. See you then.
Judith: [Bis dann!]

Hello Тарык,


You are lucky. I am from "Weißwurst country".😄

There is a saying in Bavaria: Weißwurst should be eaten

before the churchbell rings. This means they should be eaten

as fresh as possible. And of course, heat them up slowly,

DON'T boil them.


Thank you.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

Hi Jian,


There is only one correct way of pronouncing the "g" in "wenig",

and that's the same "g" as in girl.

Thank you for your question.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Hi!

I'd like to know the pronunciation of 'g' in [wenig]. What I found in dictionary is like xi in taxi. But as I listened in the dialog, it seems 'g' pronunciates like girl's 'g'

Are they both hochdeutsch?

Thank you

Hallo Martha,


Vielen Dank für deinen Kommentar. Das ist interessant! Reibekuchen sind sehr beliebt in Deutschland, aber scheinbar auch in vielen anderen Ländern ?.

Ich kenne Reibekuchen hier in Deutschland vor allem mit Apfelmus. Man kann sie aber auch gut mit Fisch kombinieren.


Viele Grüße

Also sind die Reibekuchen ein traditionelles Gericht in Deutschland? Sind sie etwa wie dies? https://www.google.com.ua/search?q=%D0%B4%D0%B5%D1%80%D1%83%D0%BD%D0%B8&rlz=1C1CHBF_ukUA781UA781&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwihpfPgr9rZAhVMDMAKHRtLB2IQ_AUICigB&biw=1366&bih=647

Das heißt "Deruny" und ist ein traditionelles Gericht in Ukraine. Wir haben hier viele Gerichte die deutschen Gerichte ähnlich sind.


Was für eine Sause essen die Deutsche die Reibekuchen mit? Hier in Ukraine essen wir die mit sauern Rahm. Ich weiß dass dieses Produkt nicht in alle Länder bekannt ist, also interessiert mir sehr ob es in Deutschland benutzt wird.
