Gen X German – Gummischuhe

This is an excerpt from a cable pilot from ca. 1996 which was an attempt to to something like Tele Deutsch but with more polish. The production qualities were better, but the Tele Deutsch feel was missing…

This video will be included in the new Gummischuhe online course materials at http://mygermanclass.com/moodle/

Der Mann, der die Gummischuhe Trägt 8: Mein Haus?

 

In this episode, der Mann, der die Gummischuhe Trägt gives a tour of his oh-so-humble abode.

Der Mann, der die Gummischuhe Trägt 7

Der Mann, der die Gummischuhe Trägt is back in Sloan’s Lake park, Denver, CO. This episode highlights what happens when a non-native speaker attempts to say and translate things and it goes awry! I was attempting to say “stuck in a trashcan” and I believe I massacred it… oh well…

In other news, there are now two MyGermanClass.com mini-courses – one for Ubel Knubel and one for Herr Nelson beim Psychologen – with more to come, available at MGC Universität. For a relatively minor donation, you can get full English/German scripts of all the videos, self-check quizzes, and discussion boards.

Viel Spaß beim Lernen!

Episode 6: Dizzy in San Francisco
TEXT

Good day! I am… in San Francisco. And I am in the Lombard Street. No noise!

It says that on a sign. No noise here! People live here in the houses. No noise! There is a car! That is the Lombard Street. There are many cars driving. Look, that is a red car. Cool! It is so green. And here there should be no noise. There is a car driving in the Lombard Street. Lots of cars! Look!

A speed limit of 5 miles per hour. That is the speed limit, here is the speed limit 5 miles per hour. Look! That is my shoe, my rubber shoe! I am pointing at something. What is that? That is a white car. And what is that? That is the streetcar in San Francisco. There are many streetcars. That is cool.

More to come….
