The Lernen to Talk Show: Episode 21 – Der Duisburger Weihnachtsmarkt!
This week’s episode sees the triumphant return of my guests from Episode 12! It also concludes the 2011 Weihnachtsmarkt Trilogy. Join us over a mug of Glühwein as we discuss what Germans eat for Christmas dinner! Be warned, it is also the strangest episode yet…
Thanks to Ali for manning the camera!
0:51 – I should really get a better microphone… but then again, it could hear me the whole time! It’s so hard to tell how the sound will be in loud outdoor places.
1:12 – These things are in all the Weihnachtsmarkts, as far as I can tell.
1:52 – Niklas needs to learn how to hold his Glühwein.
2:08 – I could have stopped here with “Wir sind echt.” That would have been a complete sentence… I didn’t realize. I thought “echt” was an adverb!
2:40 – I want one!
4:55 – Man it was cold that night.
5:23 – Schon means “already”, but schön means “lovely” or “nice”. I don’t normally get these confused… but unfortunately the one time I did is now forever immortalized on video.
5:31 – In Germany Christmas Eve is when most of the celebration happens.
5:51 – Rauchen kann tödlich sein. Es kann auch verursachen, dass deine Stimme so klingt.
5:58 – Ali, I am so sorry to have made you film us for so long in the freezing cold.
