Re: księżyc - Deutsch

Postby księżycowy » 2019-01-09, 12:54

I've decided to stop making flashcards for German, and instead I'm just going to define new words in my textbook/workbook. It just isn't practical and is too time consuming to input all those words into any flashcard program.

I'm hoping that from the repetition of defining the words (and noting the gender when appropriate), they'll sink in. Plus I can look over the words in the Kapitel (as I tend to reread sections of the current Kapitel as I work on it through the week) as I go along.

Anyone have an interesting writing prompt (for a beginner) that I can write a paragraph on? Or anything they want to learn about me (within reason)? :P

I am "not really" a beginner of German. However, I am a beginner of some other languages. So I qualify as well for replying ;).

Ja. Es gibt hier tatsächlich etwas. Und zwar...
what is your profile's image all about, and who is that girl/woman?
Außerdem...
what is the role of the German language in your personal life?

- Botany (EN, DE, ...)

I wasn't saying you have to be a beginner in German to give me a topic, rather anyone can give me a topic so long as it's something a beginner (which is what I am) can handle writing about.

That could be interesting to say a few words about. :P

So you are using the Geheimniskrämer Emoji. Both of this question and the other one (about the role of German in your life) are simply Left Unanswered and Not Commented. ACK.

Really, that is what you meant? I definitely wasn't aware of anything like that until you explained it to me ;) do have one or two ideas on a Beginner's Writing Prompt.

You could write about
[1] buying some food in a store
[2] looking at the sky while being on the shore
[3] eating breakfast, wanting tea, then realizing there is no more
[4] re-arranging some objects in a room to be of knowing where they are secure
- Any two-digit no. of lang. learned in rotation
- Botany (EN, DE, ...)

I thought those were suggestions for writing. Which I will use, because I've decided it could be interesting to write about. (I readily admit to glossing over the German.)

As for the role of German in my life, I've spoken on that quite recently. Multiple times at that.

Yes, when he wrote:

"For a beginner" was referring to "interesting," not "anyone." He was asking whether anyone had an idea for something he could write about, taking into consideration that he's a beginner. :)

Well... did you read the context of "Really, this is what you meant"?

Anything within the "strike" tag already was included within the strike tag when I made this post. So I didn't use that tag because of an edit, but because of wanting to express "well, I already was aware of that being what you meant even before you explained it".

"For a beginner" was referring to "interesting," not "anyone." He was asking whether anyone had an idea for something he could write about, taking into consideration that he's a beginner. :)

Yes, and then four of those ideas have been listed.
