Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone! I'm Alisha.
Welcome to Conversational Phrases!
We've found that the best way to learn a language is to speak it from day one! And the best way to start speaking is to learn phrases that you'll use in real conversations.
In this lesson, you'll learn conversational phrases to answer the question, "What are you good at?" After watching this video, you'll be able to talk about what you're good at doing.
Now, let's take a look at some conversational phrases!
Listen to the dialogue.
Worin bist du gut?
Ich bin gut in Sprachen.
Once more with the English translation.
Worin bist du gut?
“What are you good at?”
Ich bin gut in Sprachen.
“I'm good at languages.”
First of all you'll need to learn how to say “What are you good at?”
That's: Worin bist du gut?
Listen to it again: Worin bist du gut?, Worin bist du gut?
This German sentence literally translates as “Wherein are you good?” But it means “What are you good at?”.
Now, how do you answer this question?
The pattern is:
Ich bin gut in [skill].
“I'm good at [skill].”
For example:
“I'm good at languages.”
Ich bin gut in Sprachen., Ich bin gut in Sprachen.
