German Language Game: Im Flugzeug (1.1)

German Language Game: "Im Flugzeug" - In the airplane.

Learn German. This is a short version of Scene 1.1 of our German 1 course. (You can play the full course for FREE by registering HERE.)

In this scene, Michael talks with the woman who sits next to him on the plane and tells her when and how he learned German.

Learn and practice 10 German words and phrases in the context of a conversation.

  • was - what
  • Sie möchten - you would like (formal)
  • trinken - to drink
  • der Apfelsaft - the apple juice
  • bitte - please
  • Mit Eis? - With ice?
  • Nein danke. - No thanks.
  • hier ist - here is
  • Ihr Apfelsaft - your apple juice (formal)
  • Danke schön. - Thank you very much. 

Here are a few tips on how you can best learn with GamesforLanguage.

One is to say the German OUT LOUD every time after the speaker.

Do this with individual words, with phrases, and also with full sentences.

For extra practice, tap/click on the German sentence again and repeat. Each time, you can focus on different things: the melody of the sentence (i.e. where does the voice go up and down?), individual letter combinations that are hard, certain word combinations, etc.

Another tip is to listen to the conversation a number of times with your eyes closed, so that you can focus totally on listening. Listen without trying to translate.
