Deutsch 101 - Stunde 24 [die Stunde = hour]

Outline plan:

  • Sign up for times for first oral test. Practice with one or two of the index cards for the first oral test.
    • Find these on Canvas > Files > Oral Test Info
  • Overhead: Gibt es...?
    • Partner: Overhead: "Denkst du, es gibt…?"
    • Remember to pronounce the "Z" in "Zombies" like the "zz" in "Pizza" :)
  • Aktivität 37 (Partner)
    • Note: all these words are plural! ==> The point of the exercise is to circle the features of each word (if there are any!) that show that it's plural
  • Practice reading shorthand plural notation using "Die Stadt" vocabulary on p. 118
    • See the marginal note in the middle of page 113 for an explanation of how the plural notation works
    • Note that when an umlaut is indicated, it should go on the nearest a, o, or u at the end of the word, unless there's a double vowel (au), in which case it goes on the "a"
    • Note info on p. 113 re: the plural endings for -chen, -heit etc.
    • Incidentally, note that the endings -chen (==> neuter) and -heit, -keit, tät, and -ung (==> feminine) also determine the gender of those nouns. You can find more such information in the optional homework reading assigned für Stunde 26: "Some Hints on How to Guess Gender."
  • Variation on iLrn S:3-2B
    • Note the additional info for this (and for S:3-2G below!) in the "Für Stunde 24: SUBMIT Kapitel 3 iLrn" Canvas Assignment.
      • Remember that this kind of important additional info is often included in the Canvas Assignments for iLrn!
    • Listen for anything you can understand (not just the answers to the 5 questions)
  • iLrn S:3-2G
    • This is good preparation for the test!
  • Flexible time. Some possibilities:
  • Your instructor may end class today with a joke that will make sense if you respond "Doch!"
    • Remember "Doch!" is used to negate negative statements - e.g. "Die Ohio State Studenten sind nicht dumm" - "Doch!"]
