Lesson Transcript

Alisa: Welcome to German weekly words. My name is Alisa and today’s topic – and today’s topic is personalities.
[höflich] - “Polite”. [Ich finde es sehr wichtig wenn Menschen höflich sind und darauf lege ich sehr viel Wert.] - “I think it’s very important when people are polite and I value that a lot.”
[schlau] - “clever”. [Unser Hund ist sehr schlau.] - “Our dog is very clever”. I have a German shepherd mix dog and he is very clever and I like to just teach him new things.
[stolz] - “proud”. [Ich bin sehr stolz auf euch, wenn ihr gut Deutsch lernt.] - “I am very proud of you guys when you learn German”.
[streng] that’s like so German [Viele Ausländer sagen die deutsche Sprache ist eine strenge Sprache.] - “A lot of foreigners actually say that German language is a straight language”. Yeah I don’t really get why. I mean I do kind of hear it that it’s not very like soft language. I actually had lot of my friends too from like foreign friends, they are always like, are you like fighting with your parents and I am like no, I am talking normal but I guess it just sounds very harsh and strict.
[überheblich] - “overbearing”. You just missed my whole acting. I was like [Ich mag keine Menschen die überheblich sind.] - “I don’t like people who are like overbearing”. I think everybody should just not ever think that anybody is over somebody. Yes this was the end. Oh no! I thank you for watching German weekly words with today’s topic, personalities. Yeah leave in the comments what’s your personality like? Are you short-tempered or you are the funny person and yes I would like to know. See you soon, bye. Bye, bye. Well I am a human!

Hello Christopher,

Thank you very much for your kind feedback! ?

We are glad to hear that you like our lesson ?

Please let me make a little correction to your German. "Ich mag sehr" should be "Ich mag es sehr" the "es" refers to the lesson in this case.

Thank you and please let us know if you have any questions.
