The Lernen to Talk Show: Episode 29 – Cooking!
On February 13th my roommate Annalaura was kind enough to chat with me while we cooked dinner on Gerolsteinerstraße. Tune in for a rare glimpse inside my (then) new Wohngemeinschaft, or “WG”, as we say in the biz. I know I’m not supposed to pick favorites… but this might be my favorite episode yet. I think having an actual activity behind the conversation really adds to the entertainment value! And I think the distraction actually makes me speak better German! Plus, it makes for opportunities to learn new vocabulary on the spot! What do you think? Should I change format of The Lernen to Talk Show into a cooking show?
Thanks to Heliana for filming!

0:55 – That’s this Sunday!
1:07 – The third being behind the camera.
1:23 – Kochen means “to cook”, and Kuchen means “cake”. I doubt this will ever be easy for me to differentiate.
1:30 – Ah yes, that most traditional of German dishes, pasta and eggs!
1:34 – Everything’s better with beans!
1:51 – I went to REWE again tonight! It’s actually called REWE City, not City REWE.
2:06 – My skill set in the kitchen doesn’t get much more advanced than showing…
2:15 – ..But I still manage to hurt myself.
2:28 – Du schneist Tomaten. “You snow tomatoes.” I want to see what that would look like.
3:09 – I guess I’m pretty good at pouring too, if I may say so myself.
4:10 – Here’s some good evidence of how quickly I can forget words. In almost exactly one minute, I totally forgot the word “schütten”!
