In this video, I will teach you the letters of the German alphabet.
“MfG” is short for “Mit freundlichen Grüßen” (“With friendly greetings”), which is a very common formula used at the end of an email or letter. The abbreviation can be used in informal written communication. Apart from “MfG”, this song contains many other abbreviations and is great to review the German alphabet. Download the pdf and read along. They sing, really, really fast, and even for Germans, it is hard to sing along, but why don’t you just give it a try!?
In this interactive exercise, you will present Angela Merkel, Claudia Schiffer and yourself and ask me questions. We will practise asking questions in the third and second person singular. The video has been made in a way that it will seem as if we were having a real discussion. I will make pauses during which you can formulate your answers.
