Introduction

In this latest episode of Coffee Break German we’ll be looking at how to cope with language difficulties and to explain that you don’t understand – that you’re just learning German! Coffee Break German comes to you from the Radio Lingua Network. In weekly episodes you’ll join native speaker Thomas who’ll be teaching learner Mark in gradual, structured lessons. The episodes also feature Kirsten, our Grammar Guru, and Julia, our Cultural Correspondent.

Coming up in this lesson…

In this lesson you’ll do some practice of last week’s topic of giving directions, and you’ll learn to talk about the languages you speak. You’ll learn:

  • to say that you speak a little German;
  • how to cope in situations where you don’t understand what is being said to you;
  • the words for a number of languages;
  • how to conjugate a regular verb in the present tense singular forms.
