You will learn about learning styles and giving personal information.

welcome to gr1001

If you did our beginners’ or advanced beginners’ course, you will know what to do already. If you are new to Te Kura, take your time, follow the instructions carefully and you’ll soon get used to your course. Important preparation •• Fill in the Questionnaire (GR1000DA) before you begin this lesson. Send it back to your teacher with this booklet when you have finished the work. This will help your German teacher to get to know you and your past experience in German so they can individualise your learning programme. •• Thoroughly study the Course and assessment guide booklet (GR1000CA). If you have any questions give your teacher a call. Points to remember •• Before you start each lesson make sure you have everything you need: booklet, CD, CDplayer, and when needed a recording facility for your speaking activities and your Portfolio writing task. •• Read the instructions and work through the lessons steadily. •• Spend as much time as you can on oral work. Remember: practice makes perfect. •• Self-marking is as important as the activities themselves because this will give you immediate feedback about your work! Use a different coloured pen to tick or correct your work. Check your answers against the answer guide at the back of the booklet. •• Problems? Go back and try again. If there is something you can’t understand, phone or email your teacher for help.

You will learn about possessive and other pronouns, how to use plural forms and how to give more information about family and friends.

pronouns and possessive pronouns

When we talk about people in general we don’t always use their names, but we say he, she, you and so on instead. These little words are called pronouns or nominative pronouns.

suzanne lehner

der Hund/er: Mein Hund/er heißt Lumpi. Meine Hunde sind lieb! die Hunde:

When we talk about what we possess or own, we use words like my, your, his, her and so on. This set of words is called possessive pronouns. You must also remember that possessive pronouns have an ‘e’ added for female or plural use.

die Katze/sie: Meine Katze/sie heißt Mausi. die Katzen: Meine Katzen haben Hunger. suzanne lehner

Sie ist Bibliothekarin. Mein Vater ist Programmierer bei Siemens. Er wohnt aber nicht bei uns, weil meine Eltern geschieden sind. Mein Vater hat wieder geheiratet und wohnt ziemlich weit weg, in Essen. Zum Glück verstehe ich mich gut mit seiner neuen Frau, Gloria, aber mit meinem Vater streite ich mich oft. Ich habe einen achtzehnjährigen Bruder, Dirk, und eine jüngere Schwester, Marianne. Sie ist zwölf Jahre alt. Marianne und ich verstehen uns gut, aber Dirk und ich haben oft Krach. Er hat eine neue Freundin kennengelernt und verbringt seine ganze Zeit entweder bei ihr oder beim Fußballspielen. Hast du Haustiere? Wir haben einen zweijährigen Hund. Schreib mir bitte bald, und schick mir bitte ein Bild von dir. Alles Gute, Heidrun 16

You will learn about Berlin and the German National Anthem.

rund um berlin 5A

You are going to learn a bit about Berlin. ‘Track 12. Activity 5A. Part of learning German …’ Germany is a collection of 16 ‘Federal States’, three of which are ‘city states’: Berlin, Hamburg and Bremen. With about 3.5 million citizens Berlin is not only Germany’s biggest city but also the capital city. Through it runs the river Spree, and there is a big system of canals and many lakes. There are also a lot of parks and forests for Berliners to enjoy. It seems as if Berlin has always been Germany’s capital, and it is easily forgotten that during the years after the end of World War II and 1989, Berlin was the capital of the former German Democratic Republic only. During this period the city Bonn on the river Rhine was the Federal Republic’s capital. Since the ‘Wende’ (reunification of Germany) in 1990 a lot of changes have taken place, and Berlin’s face seems to change constantly, but there are still a lot of familiar scenes. Berlin’s symbol is the famous ‘Berliner Bär’. Berliners are so proud about their ‘Bär’ that they even had a festival just for him!

answer guide 1. über mich und meine familie 1B

Score: 23–27 points Analytical? A perfectionist? You may feel it is very important to be as accurate as possible all the time. You probably prefer the sort of language learning where you need to think carefully, for example, when you are doing grammar activities, working out the meanings of words or practising pronunciation. You may be nervous about speaking and recording because you’re afraid of making mistakes. You may be able to improve your language learning. Look at the following suggestions. •• Try to speak more. For example, try talking to German-speaking friends or tourists. •• Don’t worry too much about your mistakes. Remember that the people you speak to won’t be listening for mistakes you might make but for what you are trying to say. •• Trust yourself. Don’t be afraid to trust yourself. You probably know more than you think. Score: 9–13 points Relaxed? Like experimenting? You seem to pick up languages without much effort. Sometimes you may think, though, that you should be more accurate and should be learning grammar rules better, but you probably don’t enjoy this and quickly lose interest. You may be able to improve your language learning. Look at the following suggestions. •• Try finding more time to learn. You may need to spend more time practising things like grammar, pronunciation and so on. Try to organise a regular time for learning. •• Try being more self-critical. You probably need to correct yourself more. You may not worry or notice when you make mistakes, but if you try to become more aware of the mistakes you make regularly, you may find it easier to do something about them. Check written work for spelling, capitals and word endings. Listen to yourself to improve your pronunciation. Score: 14–22 points A mixture? You may find that you do not fall exactly into either of the two above categories. Many people are a mixture and learn in different ways. Look at the descriptions for ‘Analytical’ and ‘Relaxed’. You may find that you are more similar to one than the other and this could help you think about what areas of your learning you might want to improve. Score: 0–8 points Not sure? Your score does not mean that you are not a good language learner. Perhaps this is the first time you have thought about the way you learn. To find out more about this can be very useful in helping you to become a more effective language learner. You can find out some general information by looking at the descriptions and suggestions for ‘Analytical’ and ‘Relaxed’. During your course try to become more aware of the ways you learn. This can help you decide which areas of your learning you might improve. Now go back and carry on with activity 1C.
