Lesson 6: Eating and drinking

Page 1 of 12       next

In the supermarket

This lesson's focus is mainly on food and drinking. We will also introduce the concept of irregular verbs and we will classify them into several groups so that it will be easier for you to handle these verbs.

Herr Becker and his little daughter Anne went to the supermarket to buy food for tonight. Their remote relatives from the United States are coming to visit them in Germany for the first time. The Beckers want to offer them great food and the first step to prepare a great meal is to buy the right ingredients at the supermarket.

Read the following dialog between Herr Becker and Anne aloud to yourself. Then read it once again (aloud) before continuing with the lesson. Now, unlike in the lessons before, we won't translate every sentence into English. Only the new and unknown words will be translated.
