German Language Game: vorhaben

In this German Quick Language Game you practice the verb "vorhaben." 

Note that "haben" = to have; "vorhaben" = to plan, to have in mind. "Vorhaben" is a separable-prefix verb, as in the sentences: "Ich habe etwas vor." (I'm planning something.) "Hast du etwas vor?" (Are you planning something?)

Learn to use "vorhaben" in context. Words and sentences you'll practice:

  • etwas - something
  • Ich habe etwas vor. - I'm planning something.
  • was? - what?
  • Was hast du vor? - What are you planning (to do)?
  • was für? - what kind of?
  • das Abenteuer - the adventure
  • denn - then, filler in colloquial speech
  • Was für ein Abenteuer hat du denn vor? - What kind of adventure are you planning then? 
  • ich fliege - I fly, I'm flying
  • nach Deutschland - to Germany
  • Ich habe es vor. - I'm planning (to do) it.
  • bestimmt - definitely
  • Ich habe es bestimmt vor. - I'm definitely planning it. 

The key is say the German OUT LOUD after the speaker.
