Lesson Transcript

Hi guys, I am Alisa. Welcome to German weekly words. Today’s topic is computer words.
So let’s start [Drucker] - “printer”. [Der Drucker macht heute nicht unbedingt was ich möchte.] - “the printer is not doing what it’s supposed to do”. So that happens to me actually a lot.
[Kopfhörer] - “headphones”. [Ich habe heute neue Kopfhörer gekauft.] - “I bought a new headphones today”
[Mikrofon] - “microphone”. [Als ich gestern in einer Karaokebar war, ist das Mikrofon ausgegangen zum Glück anderer.] - “Yesterday when I was at a karaoke bar, the microphone went silent. So that was actually good for the listeners”.
[Monitor] - “monitor”. Especially the region where I come from, it’s Cologne and Bonn, we do speak a little different. We kind of pronounce everything very long. So [Monitor] it is the German pronunciation but I guess it’s called [Kölsch] and I do kind of talk a little bit like that [Der Monitor zeigt die Farben in sehr guter qualität. ] - “The monitor shows the colors in a very good and high quality”.
[Tischcompute] - “desktop computer”. [Tisch] also means “table”. [Ich habe meinen Tischcomputer in einer anderen Farbe angemalt.] - “I painted my desktop computer in a different color”. I actually did that to be honest. So that was it from the computer world, thank you.

Hi Ryan,


Thank you for your feedback.


Our company decided to display the nouns in their dictionary form and then we add the gender information

in either brackets in the Vocabulary list, or in the Lesson Notes PDF.

We found that encouraging the student to actively look for the article aids the learning process.😉


If you have any questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

I would appreciate having the appropriate pronoun (masc., fem., neutral) before each word.

Love the course! Would it be possible to add the definite article indicating gender to each vocabulary word on the list? That would be very helpful to memorize with the words. Thanks so much!
