CBG To Go 2.08 | Was ist ein typisch deutsches Gericht für dich? – What is a typical German dish for you?

In this episode of Coffee Break German To Go, Julia asks the question Was ist ein typisch deutsches Gericht für dich? (informal) or Was ist ein typisch deutsches Gericht für Sie? (formal). You can use the answers of our interviewees to help you answer this question in German.

In the first part of the video, watch the interviews without subtitles and try to understand. In the second part of the video, we’ve provided subtitles in German at the top of the screen. You can choose to turn on subtitles in English using the Subtitles/CC button.

In our second series, Julia is in the city of Berlin, and in each episode she’ll ask passers-by one question. Of course, that one question will result in many answers, and it’s through these answers that you can practise your German and build your vocabulary.

If you’d prefer not to wait for all 10 lessons of Season 2 to be published, you can access downloadable versions of the videos along with audio versions and lesson notes / transcripts in the Coffee Break Academy.
