38: Wann fährt der Zug nach Berlin? | When does the train to Berlin leave?

Understand announcements in a train station & plural: nouns that get an –er / -¨er ending, simple past forms for irregular and auxiliary verbs.

Paul and Fritz are at the train station and want to go to Berlin. While they are buying tickets, they wonder why Anna hasn’t arrived yet. She’s running late. Strangely she’s also not answering phone calls. Paul thinks she’ll come, and buys a third ticket for her, too. But Fritz isn’t so sure she’ll arrive at the last minute since the train is about to leave … Why isn’t Anna answering her phone? Where is she?

Learn German with Stories – the idea behind it

We felt that the best way to learn German is NOT using the old style teaching material with chapters full of tiny texts and unrelated stories. Our idea was to spoon-feed you German in very small bits. And to tell you parts of one big story at the same time. An awesome, full-blown story with different storylines that continues throughout all lessons. We wanted to keep you motivated and say “I can’t wait to find out what happens next episode!” If you’re curious about the idea behind German Stories, go to german-stories.com/the-best-way-to-learn-german
