Meine Familie German Essay About Myself

 
  1. Hey,

    I'm a uni student and I have to do beginners german in addition to my course. I've got to write about myself in a test later this week. Could anyone tell me if the following is correct please?

    Mein Name ist Roger Rabbit. Ich bin einundzwanzig Jahre alt. Ich wohne in Birmingham. Ich lebe in Birmingham fur drei Monate. Ich komme aus London in England. Ich bin studentin (I'm male is studentin correct?) und ich studiere Erdkunde. Ich studiere erst zwei Monate. Ich habe keine Kinder. Ich habe zwei Hobbys, sind sie Leichtathletik und Fußball spielen.

    Thanks!

  2. I'm not German but yeah, when you're saying how long you've done something for you say 'seit' so 'ich lebe in Birmingham seit drei Monate'. 'Student' is male, and if I were you I'd change the last sentence to 'Ich habe zwei Hobbys; Leichtathletik treiben und Fussball spielen'. But I'm no expert, so some of that could be wrong!
    Also is your name really Roger Rabbit?!

  3. Some things to correct:

    Ich lebe in B seit drei Monate.

    Student - that is the male form of student. If there is an IN on the end, it is female. For example Lehrer (male teacher), LehrerIN (female teacher)

    I think it is better to say 'My hobbys are...', instead of 'I have two hobbys, they are'.


    Have fun in German

Oddly enough, the more words you learn, the easier it becomes to remember them. Your long-term memory works like an infinitely elastic network; everything you learn is classified according to meaning. As far as your long-term memory is concerned, the more related meanings you give it, the better.

This doesn’t mean that you should learn hundreds of words all at once, but you will find it helpful to learn words in connected and usable parcels.

That’s why in your text and on this page you will be learning the words for family membersalong with a number of adjectives you might use to describe them. Learning an adjective with some appropriate nouns helps you to remember both. Each kind of word acts as a memory hook for the other.

Using adjectives to describe people requires you to use a noun or pronoun, the verb „to be“ (sein) and an adjective. With these three components you can create a very simple kind of sentence, as shown in the table below. Once you know these three components, you’ll be able to generate hundreds of sentences of your own. Here’s an example, using a friendly father figure.

 

Noun or PronounThe Verb „to be“ – seinAdjective

Mein Vater

(noun)

Er

(he – pronoun)

ist (third person singular)groß(tall)
geduldig(patient)
intelligent
sportlich(athletic)
witzig(witty)
musikalisch(musical, musically talented)
nett(nice)

If only all fathers were like that! 

The first Quizlet below contains many words for family members, along with a number of adjectives you might need to describe them. First, cycle through the Quizlet. The easiest game to play with this Quizlet is Scatter, which tosses the cards over the screen and allows you to match them. After that you can play a game such as Space Race to ensure that you know all the words. Before you play this game, check the box on the screen for „ignoring stuff in parentheses“ or you will have to type the plural as well.

Reading through the second Quizlet, which contains some simple sentence examples as well, will help you to consolidate this vocabulary.

The next step is up to you. Once you have these components in your memory, you can start creating your own sentences. To learn how to use all the parts of the verb „to be“ (sein) correctly, go to this page.

Use the Quizlet below to revise the vocabulary relating to families. This Quizlet contains both single words and sentences. After cycling through the vocabulary, you could play the Scatter Game, which is the one most appropriate to longer pieces of text.

In the quiz below, you will need to type the missing words, which are usually the nouns for family members. The quiz is all in German, but you should be able to piece the meanings of the sentences together and fill in the missing word.
