Lesson 6

n the afternoon, it is time for Philip to go to his German class. He’s taking a course at the Deutschakademie. On his way to the Deutschakademie, he already catches a glimpse of the city centre. Do you remember the word for city centre? Right, Stadtzentrum. Very good! Now Philip is in class. Listen to his teacher welcoming the group:

Lehrerin Stefanie: Guten Tag und herzlich willkommen bei der Deutschakademie. Ich bin Stefanie. Ich bin eure Lehrerin.

She says: “Guten Tag.” This is slightly more formal than “Hallo” and we only use it during the day, not at night.

say after me:

Guten Tag.

The teacher continues: “und herzlich willkommen bei der Deutschakademie.” – and welcome to the Deutschakademie. Then she introduces herself.

She says: “Ich bin Stefanie. Ich bin eure Lehrerin.” I’m Stefanie. I’m your teacher. Lehrerin � teacher � Lehrerin. Now the teacher wants to know the students’ names. She asks Philip:

Lehrerin Stefanie: Wie hei�t du?

“Wie hei�t du?” means “What’s your name?”. Wie hei�t du? Philip answers:

Philip: Ich hei�e Philip.

This means “My name is Philip.” Now the teacher wants to know where the students come from. She asks:

Lehrerin Stefanie: Woher kommst du?

“Woher” means “where from”. “du” means “you”. Woher kommst du? Where do you come from? Philip replies:

Philip: Ich komme aus Frankreich.

This means “I come from France.” Let’s listen to the entire conversation again:

Lehrerin Stefanie

Guten Tag und herzlich willkommen bei der Deutschakademie. Ich bin Stefanie. Ich bin eure Lehrerin.

Lehrerin Stefanie

Wie hei�t du?

Philip

Ich hei�e Philip.

Lehrerin Stefanie

Woher kommst du?
