German Language Game: Wann fährt ...?



Quick German Language Game: "Wann fährt der Intercity?" - (When does the Intercity train leave?)
With this quick online German game, you can learn and practice 13 words and phrases in the context of a mini-story.
At the Central Train Station in Frankfurt, Michael has just bought a ticket to Heidelberg, and now inquires when the next train will leave and from what track. He also asks whether he'll have to change trains.
With such vocabulary, you'll have an easier time navigating the train system in a German-speaking country, especially if you're outside of a larger city.
Say the words and phrases OUT LOUD, after or together with the speaker. It's an excellent way to improve your pronunciation and to internalize grammar without thinking about it.
For example: irregular present tense of verbs.
The verb "fahren" - to go (by vehicle), takes an umlaut in the third person singular: "ich fahre" but "er fährt".
The verb "nehmen" - to take, changes the stem vowel from "e" to "i": "ich nehme" but "er nimmt".
