Videos to be repaired in 2014…

Guten Tag, Klasse!

Dear all,

During 2013, Blip.TV, who had hosted the MyGermanClass videos for a decade, changed their business model and cancelled all accounts that weren’t full on episodic video series. This means that none of the videos on MyGermanClass.com are currently working…

I’m in the process of uploading all of the videos to the MyGermanClass YouTube account, and will eventually be updating all of the embedded videos on this site so that they’ll work again. I also plan to upload some new videos during 2014, so stay tuned!

Vielen Dank for your visits and views, and I’ll post a new post once they are all repaired.

Viel Glück beim Lernen!

Gummischuhe: Episode 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….
