Lesson Transcript

Jason: Top 25 German Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 9: Do you like German food? (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for German learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question Do you like German food? In German this is
Rilana: Magst du deutsches Essen?
The first word in the question is
Rilana: magst
Jason: meaning like in English.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) magst
Jason: Listen again and repeat.
Rilana: magst
{Pause}
Jason: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Rilana: du
Jason: meaning you.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) du
Jason: Now repeat.
Rilana: du
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Rilana: magst du
{pause}
And next
Rilana: deutsches

Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) deutsches
Jason: Now repeat.
Rilana: deutsches
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Rilana: magst du deutsches
{pause}
And next

Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) Essen
Jason: Now repeat.
Rilana: Essen

Jason: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Do you like German food??
Rilana: Ja, ich mag besonders Würste.
Jason: "Yes, I especially like sausages.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Rilana: (Slow) Ja, ich mag besonders Würste.
{pause}
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Rilana: Nein, leider nicht.
Jason: Which is like saying No, sorry. in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Rilana: (Slowly) Nein, leider nicht.
Jason: And one more time at normal speed:
Rilana: Nein, leider nicht.
Jason: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Rilana: ja
Jason: meaning yes.

Jason: Now repeat

Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) ich
Jason:Now repeat.
Rilana: ich
{Pause}
Jason: And next
Rilana: mag
meaning like.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) mag
Jason:Now repeat.
Rilana: mag
{Pause}
Jason: And next
Rilana: besonders
meaning especially.
Rilana: (Slow, by syllable) besonders
Jason:Now repeat.
Rilana: besonders
{Pause}
Jason: And after that
Rilana: Würste
meaning sausages.

Jason:Now repeat.
Rilana: Würste
{Pause}
Jason: Listen to the speaker say, Yes, I especially like sausages., and then repeat.

Jason: apple pie
Rilana: (slow) Apfelkuchen (regular) Apfelkuchen
Jason: Listen to the phrase again, this time with apple pie
Rilana: Ja, ich mag besonders Apfelkuchen.
Jason: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace sausages. Say Yes, I especially like apple pie.

Jason: To use a different phrase, replace apple pie with cheese.
Rilana: Käse
Jason: cheese
Rilana: (slow) Käse (regular) Käse
Jason: Listen to the phrase again, this time with cheese
Rilana: Ja, ich mag besonders Käse.
Jason: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the {lang} for apple pie. Say Yes, I especially like cheese.

Hi George,


Thank you very much for your comment!


We are glad to hear that you are interested in learning German here with us :smile:

Your German sounds really not bad and it is never too late to learn another language! :thumbsup: You have made some small mistakes, it should be "Ich bin einundsiebzig Jahre alt. Deutschen Apfelkuchen oder Apfelstrudel mag ich besonders gern. Außerdem mag ich italienisches Essen."


Hope this helps and have fun learning more and more German with us!


Regards,

Albert
