If you are in a hurry for Breakfast before class! :)

Hello Everyone! ;)

Today I want to tell you about a grocery store.This place is called ALDI. It is very close to Deutsch Akademie.

They have bread and coffee for sale!

Sometimes if I feel hungry and want to grab something to eat between breaks, I run to ALDI and buy some fruit or energy drinks to have as a snack.

There are so many choices to get that are super cheap and delicious! Actually cheaper than any other grocery store. I hope this information helps you guys start a day well before German class!

Where do you want to go for coffee or a drink in Munich? :)

This place is called Cotidiano! It is really close to Deutsch Akademie. When I want to have lunch or some coffee with friends I usually go here. My favorite food is grilled salmon with Salad and Johannisberry juice (mixed with water). I go here very often after class or whenever I want to meet friends.

This place is really cozy and sometimes it is very sunny. Also lots of  young fashionable people come here to eat or drink.

The most important part is that all the foods are very fresh and AMAZING!!!

I have a lot of vegetarian and vegan friends in Munich and they also love to eat at Cotidiano because they serve vegetarian food like salad bowls and pizza.

Also, if you are not vegan you can still eat a steak sandwich and other dishes with meat. After eating or drinking you can walk to Marienplatz or Kalsplatz to shopping or just walk around. I hope lots of people try Cotidiano and have a good time. :)

Learning German is fun!

Let us know what you have experienced together. :)

Today in class we learned about the past tense !

We talked about meeting friends and how we spend our leisure time with them.  We asked questions in German like “Did you meet friends at DeutschAkademie?” and “If yes – do you spend your leisure time with them?” We practiced making natural sentences in the past tense describing what we did. We also talked about our experiences before we lived in Germany and the hobbies that we like to do. We practiced asking and answering these questions. This lesson prepared to me share more about my experiences using the past tense. This class not only prepared me to communicate in German, but it also to know more about people from other countries. Like Italy, America, Australia, France, Korea and Russia. We are very looking forward to meet tomorrow in the class at DeutschAkademie.

Learning German is fun! What we learned at Deutsch Akademie Today! :)

My teacher is like to teach very enthusiastically.

Today we learned about new vocabulary, Korperteile (Body Parts) and Die Zeit (Time).

die Gegenwart (the present), die Vergangenge (the past) and

die Zukuftthe (the future).

I was able to learn many new words.

Let’s look at a simple example.

Ich mache eine Pizza. (The present)

Ich habe eine Pizza gemacht. (the past)

I want to study German and I chose Deutsch Akademie because of it is very close to

Main stain in Munich. It’s call Hauptbahnhof station.

You can walk from Hauptbahnhof station to Deutsch Akademie in 10mints.

It is really good location to go to learn German and drinking coffee after Class!

Learning German is fun! Deutsch Akademie’s Basic information :)

We have 12 course levels for a better grading

12 course levels enable an accurate and individual assessment process.

And I am in A2/2.

My Germany Class is start from 8:30am – 11:30am.

Also My class mates are 11. It is very small group. So you will have considerably more opportunity to speak

Wie man einen Termin macht.

In Deutschland machen wir oft viele Termine. Wir brauchen Termine für alles: Arzttermine, Termine um Freunden zu Treffen, Termine im Beauty Salon, beim Friseur, bei der Bank und bei der Versicherung.

Jetzt schreibe ich ein Beispiel wie man einen privaten Termin macht und wie man ihn ändert:

„Hallo Beatrice, wie geht´s?

Tut mir leid, ich kann leider doch nicht zum Tanzen gehen am Donnerstag um 16:00 Uhr. Von 15:00 bis 17:00 bin ich in der Kinderkrippe mit meinem Kind. Ich kann am Mittwoch mit dir Tanzen gehen. Wollen wir um 16:00 Uhr Tanzen gehen? Hast du Lust? Mfg, Karina.“

Und ein zweites Beispiel wie man einen Arzttermin ändert:

„Guten Morgen. Ich habe Rückenschmerzen und möchte früher zum Arzt gehen. Können Sie meinen Termin vorziehen? Am Montag, Dienstag und Freitag habe ich am Morgen Zeit und am Donnerstag und Mittwoch habe ich am Abend Zeit. Dann bieten Sie mir einen Termin an. Ich weiß das ich meine Versichertenkarte mitbringen muss.“

Für Alles Termine machen zu müssen war für mich in Deutschland eine neue Erfahrung.

Warum ich bayerische Küche liebe.

Всем привет. Сегодня я планирую немного написать на своём родном языке, на русском и темой моей статьи будет «Еда в Баварии, а точнее в Мюнхене и его окрестностях».

Блюда здесь разнообразные, интересные и необычные, по крайнее мере для меня. К чему я не привыкла, живя в Москве, так это к изобилию соусов, подаваемых с блюдом. Причём, если заказываешь утку, соус подадут не отдельно, а вместе с самой дичью и им будет заполнено пол тарелки, тоже самое происходит со всеми остальными блюдами, будь это сосиски, рулька, братен, мясной рулет и т.д. Сейчас я, конечно, уже привыкла к немецкой кухне, но опять же, квашеная кислая капуста, которую подают ко многим блюдам, скорее на любителя, я пока не особо ее люблю и не знаю, полюблю ли вообще. 
Мы, россияне, привыкли к первым блюдам, к разнообразным супам и бульонам, в Германии же их не особо жалуют. В меню ресторана можно увидеть два-три супа, а сами немцы супам предпочитают вторые блюда. Тоже самое могу сказать и про салаты. Вы видели меню в московских ресторанах? Там одних салатов не менее 10-15, здесь же, так же, как и супов, 2-3 на все меню. Из чего можно сделать вывод, что салаты тоже особым спросом здесь не пользуются. 

Мой муж – коренной немец, начав с ним жить, я поняла, что он никогда не ел такого количества фруктов и овощей, которые ем я, может быть немец немцу рознь, так же, как и русский русскому, но пока мои наблюдения остаются прежними. Мой муж, тем временем, планирует приготовить немецкий гуляш, надеюсь, у него получится.

Kultur in Deutschland

Ako smo se vec naselili na tlo strane drzave, red je i da se upoznamo sa njenim drzavljanima. Preko 90% stanovnista Nemacke cine Nemci dok su ostalih desatak posto deseljenici od kojih najveci procenat, oko 2% ima Turaka. U Nemackoj po poslednjem podacima iz 2015-e zivi preko 82 miliona ljudi sto je cini zemljom sa najvecim brojem stanovnika u Evropi. Pismenost stanovnista iznosi neverovatnih 99%, a drzava je medju prvima u svetu po obrazovanju, tehnoloskom razvitku i privrednoj proizvodnji. Sistem socijalnog osiguranja omogucuje besplatno zdravstvo, naknade za nezaposlenost, obrazovanje i ostale socijalne prednosti. Moj prvi utisak je upecatljiv kod Nemaca, ovde vozovi ne kasne i nema opusaka na stajalistima. Da li moguce da su toliko pedantni i odgovorni? Dete uzrasta 7 godina moze jasno da procita kada ce sledeci voz biti na vasoj stanici jer su jednostavni a efikasni. Sve table, obavestenja, objasnjenja i uputstva su toliko jednostavno napisana i podvlacim namenjena i nama koji tek ucimo jezik. U prethodnim temama sam spominjala profesore i sefove koji Vam se nikada nece podsmehnuti na pogresan clanak ili izgovorenu rec. To puno govori o Nemcima kao naciji koja je gostoprimljiva, ljubazna i uvek spremna da pomogne. Da li sam zaboravila da spomenem epitet po kom ovo drustvo prepoznaju na svetskom nivou, Nemci su pre svega vredni, radni i predani poslu. Kafu piju ujutru uz dorucak i na pauzi na poslu oko 14h. Ovde se sastanci ugovaraju ranije, a gosti ne dolaze nenajavljeni. Najvise se oslanjaju na porodicu, druze se vikendom ili na godisnjim odmorima pa znaju strancima da deluju otudjeno ili cak ponekad hladno. Nedavno sam citala anketu u kojoj se oko 28% zena i 31% muskaraca izjasnilo da je brak institucija koja nije neophodna za zivot, sto ce reci da brak medju Nemacima uopste nije popularan i da radije biraju da zive u vanbracnim zajednicama. Razlozi su razliciti, brakovi iz interesa skoro da su iskorenjeni a prava zena i muskaraca svedena na potpuno iste grane, a i poprilicno su svesni da ako se ispostavi da supruznici nisu jedno za drugo ceka ih duga i skupa birokratska igranka. Izuzetno vole decu, i sistem resava puno stvari vezanih za njihovo odrastanje, cak u fitness centru postoji igraonica i animator koji ce Vam pricuvati dete dok odradite trening. Poseban utisak na mene je ostavila i njihova ljubav prema Nemackim tradicionalnim nosnjama, tako da cete od najmanjeg clana porodice do najstarijeg moci vidjeti u nosnji. Ja bi rekla da je ovo jedan prilicno realan narod, okrenut pravim vrednostima i vrlo drustveno odgovoran. Trudicu se da decu ucim nasoj kulturi ali i kulturi Njemacke podjednako.

Unser Urlaub

Letzter Sommer hatten wir unseren Urlaub auf Sardinien in Italien. Drei Wochen wir haben uns ausgeruht an einem schönen Ort. Wir sind von München nach Italien gefahren, von dort haben wir die Fähre genutzt. Mit dem Schiff sind wir um 8 Uhr nach Olbia abgefahren und dann 15 Uhr bei unserer unsere Villa angekommen. Berge sind wir gewohnt, aber jetzt hatten wir etwas ein schönes Meerpanorama.

Ich liebe Sardinien. Dort scheint immer schön die Sonne und das Meer ist warm.  Es gibt leckeres Essen, wunderschöne Strände und frischen Fisch. Jeden Tag haben wir Fisch gegrillt – ich liebe es ! Frische Salate, leckeres Eis, italienische Pizza und Risotto. Das Essen ist toll dort.

Jeden mal wir hatten verschiedene Strände. Alle Strände sind sehr schön und einmalig, das Wasser ist immer warm, komfortabel und wunderschön blau. Wir sind mit dem Schiff gefahren und haben viele Delphine gesehen. Ich mag diese Meer und ich möchte dort jedes Jahr meinen Urlaub verbringen. Nächsten Sommer planen wir, nochmal nach Sardinien zu fahren.

My German language

Today I want to tell you about my method of learning German. At the moment I’m taking in Deutsch Akademie A1.2 Modul. Every morning from Monday till Thursday I have my classes in Karlsplatz Stachus in München, they take place from 8-30 till 11-30. During the classes we are making exercises, learning new words, playing in groups, listening the texts and sometimes writing dictant. I like my teacher, because she explains every rule and she does not say, how it was, for example, with my A1.1 course, it’s like this, n you have to learn it. Today’s teacher explains everything, there are the rules for any question, this I like a lot.

During our morning three hour class we gave a short 15 minutes break, where we can eat snacks, talk to each other, ask for specific questions n so on. After the class I drive home and I try to wrote all new words from today’s lesson. These words I divide by articles, so at the end I have three columns with words: der, die, das. Like this it’s easier for me to remember the article. Also I wrote new verbs with translation. After I’m making stickers with unknown, new words. I have a lot of sich stickers all around the flat, my husband dies not like this, but for me it’s only the way to remember the words. So, during the rest of the day I’m trying to learn new words and new rules, and during the evening, when my child is already sleeping, I have some time to make my homework with exercises. 

In Deutsch Akademie i take intensive course, and for me it’s really intensive. After one month of learning, I feel myself really tired and I need some break. So, the next month I will not take my next course and will try to improve by myself at home the knowledge which I already have and may be I will go to the fitness studio for one month. The next Modul of A2.1 I will take in March. Wish you good luck with learning language.
