Lesson Transcript

Alisa: Hi my name is Alisa. Welcome to German weekly words. This week’s topic is fruits. I love fruits.
[Apfel] - “Apple”. So in the German, there is a lot of Apple fields and you can go Apple picking [Eine meiner Lieblingsfrüchte ist der Apfel.] - Yeah so “one of my favorite fruits is the Apple”.
[Himbeere] - “Raspberry”, yes in Germany, it just grows everywhere even in our garden and so it was very, very yummy. [Meine Mutter hat sehr gerne Himbeermarmelade gemacht. ] - “My mom used to make a lot of raspberry marmalade”.
[Pfirsich] - “peach”, it is one of my favorite fruits too especially the Japanese one. I do have to say they are one of the best. Yes [Der japanische Pfirsich ist eine der berühmtesten und teuersten auf der Welt.] - “the Japanese peach is one of the most famous and expensive one actually in the world”.
[Kirsche] - “cherry”, where I used to live, now it sounds like I lived like on the fields but there was actually another cherry field but it was so good and yummy and they are so big [Die Kirsche ist eine meiner Lieblingsfrüchte.] yeah “the cherry is one of my favorite fruits as well”.
[Traube] - “grape”, in Germany, there is like a lot of those little grapes and they are not that big. I guess it’s because where I live, it’s Rhineland, it’s Bonn/Cologne, there is a lot of grape fields to make like wine [In Deutschland gibt es weiße und rote oder beziehungsweise dunkle Trauben.] - “In Germany, there is white grapes and most common like the dark grapes to make wine”.
So thank you and what’s your favorite fruit. Leave in the comments and I hope you tune in again for another lesson, bye.

Hi Jose,


Do you mean the sentence "In Deutschland gibt es weiße und rote oder beziehungsweise dunkle Trauben."

(In Germany, there are white grapes, and the most common are dark grapes to make wine.)


Indeed, it is a bit difficult to understand! To make the sentence more plausible, have a look here:

"In Deutschland gibt es weiße und rote Trauben." (In Germany there are white and red grapes.)


"beziehungsweise" means in English "that means". In German the word is often shortened to "bzw."


I hope this makes it better to understand!


Please let me know if you have any further questions.


Best

Jennifer

Love it. But I got a doubt or it is not clear for me the translation of the Trauben's sentence.
