Lesson Transcript

Alisa: Welcome to German weekly words. My name is Alisa and let’s start. So, today’s topic is at the office.
So let’s start and [Besprechung] that means “meeting”. It sounds very soft in English and in German, it sounds very hard [Besprechung] new or modern companies do use more meeting because it’s shorter than [Besprechung] but [Besprechung] is definitely like very common German word. [Wir hatten heute mit unserem Team eine wichtige Besprechung.] - “We had very important meeting with our team”.
[Büro] meaning “office”, yeah [Unser Büro ist mitten in der Stadt.] - “our office is in the middle of the city”.
[Chef] - “boss”. I always thought in English actually you say chef too but I guess it’s more in the – like at a restaurant you say more chef [Mein Chef hat das Vergnügen nicht so viel zu arbeiten. ] and yes, “my boss has the advantage of not working as much as I do”. That’s what I just said in German. Well you know, if you are a chef of a company, you can just come in whenever kind of and so…
[Schreibtisch] means “desk”. [Ich teile meinen Schreibtisch mit einer Mitarbeiterin.] - “I share a desk with one of my co-workers”. [Schreiben] means write and [tisch] means desk.
[Computer] - “computer”. It’s again the pronunciation is different [Mein Computer ist etwas schneller geworden, nachdem ich es aufgerüstet habe. ] - “my computer is faster now after I sent it in” and I don’t know about you but I get really frustrated when the computer is really slow. I just want to – I don’t know, I want to throw it out the window. Yes thank you and hopefully you will tune in again.

Hallo Nisa,


du magst also das Wort "Computer" (So you like the word "computer"?) You are right, you also use it in German! Instead of "Computer" we also say "der Rechner".


Best,


Jennifer
