CBG 2.18 | Wie alt warst du, als du ein Handy gekauft hast?

This episode of Coffee Break German introduces the verbs sein and haben and how they are used in the past. In fact, these verbs use a different tense, the Präteritum, or “imperfect” as it is often referred to in English. You’ll learn to conjugate the imperfect of sein and haben and how to use it in a variety of situations.

  1. Hey,

    First off, I really love the podcast. I just want to let you know that the website says ‘wie alt warst du, als du eine Handy gekauft hast?’ , but it should be ‘Wie alt warst du, als du ein Handy gekauft hast?’

    Keep up the great podcasts!

    Best regards,

    Adam.

    1. Thanks for pointing this out, Adam. We’ve changed the title – unfortunately we can’t change the link but hopefully the title change is the most important thing.

  2. I was able to download the PDF’s for lessons 101, 102, 103, 106, 107, 108 and 114 but not the others in the first 40 lessons. How can I obtain those PDF’s? Thank you………..tom

      Apologies for the slow reply – we’ve been updating the site. The PDFs are only available through the Coffee Break Academy as part of our premium course. Is this where you’ve downloaded them? If not, then unfortunately you’re using pirated copies.
