Deutsch 101 - Stunde 46 [die Stunde = hour]

Outline plan:

  • Informal activity before class begins: Practice with one or two of the "Indexkarten" for the 2nd Oral Test
    • Find these on Canvas > Files > Oral Tests
  • Seite 204: Anna ist endlich [=finally] in Tübingen!
    • In diesem Kapitel zieht sie in ihr neues Zimmer im Studentenwohnheim ein. Was bedeutet einziehen?
  • Seite 204: "Studentenzimmer" vocab:
    • EITHER: "Haben Sie ein X in Ihrem Zimmer?"
      • Partner: Was lieben Sie? Was hassen Sie? Was möchten/müssen Sie kaufen?
    • OR: Groups of 3 or 4 pretend to be roommates and discuss who (already: schon) has what and what they will have to (or would like to) buy for their room.
      OR: "The Price is Right!" Overhead: Ikea Möbel (Guess the prices (prices are from 2008, but inflation has been low)
  • Time permitting: Was gibt es in Ihrem Traumzimer? Was gibt es nicht?
  • Overhead: Satzdetektiv
    • Repeat the vocabulary, then do the silly translation exercise :)
    • Aktivität 3
  • Listen to the Anlauftext (pp. 206-7 in the eBook) and do Aktivität 4
    • Note some of the Dative forms in the Anlauftext.
    • Note the picture showing Keller, Erdgeschoss, 1. Stock, 2. Stock
      • Instructor asks: Mein Büro ist im MLB auf dem 'third floor'. Wie sagt man das auf Deutsch?"
  • "Sprache im Alltag" expressions p. 205
  • Dative:
    • Identify the direct and indirect objects in these English sentences:
      • My mom gives me a sports car
      • My dad shows my mom the hair in his ears
      • I give the dog a steak
      • I feed the cat [trick question: no indirect object here!]
      • Angela Merkel opens the door for me.
      • We recommend the Riesling to all our customers
      • I tell you the truth
    • Identify the Accusative (direct) and Dative (indirect) objects in the German versions of the above sentences:
      • Meine Mutter gibt mir einen Sportwagen
      • Der Mann zeigt der Frau die Haare in seinen Ohren
      • Ich gebe dem Hund ein Steak
      • Ich füttere die Katze
      • Angela Merkel öffnet mir die Tür
      • Ich sage dir die Wahrheit
    • Revisit Stunde 30 cartoon overhead: "Gib mir den Holzpflock": identify the Accusative (direct) and Dative (indirect) objects in the command, "Gib mir den Holzpflock"
    • ==> Is the dative (indirect) object of a verb more likely to be a person or animal, or an inanimate object? [a person or animal]
    • There are not many verbs that actually tend to require indirect objects. The most common examples are giving, showing, and recommending: geben/schenken, zeigen, and (coming in Kapitel 7). But many other verbs can get a dative object if you do them for someone: I cook you a meal, I repair your car for you, I do your homework for you, I explain the dative to you.
  • Dative pronouns p. 212: Repeat these statements:
    • Er gibt mir das Buch
    • Ich gebe dir das Buch
    • Ich gebe ihm das Buch
    • Ich gebe ihr das Buch
    • Er gibt uns das Buch
    • Ich gebe euch das Buch
    • Ich gebe ihnen das Buch
  • Overhead: Dativbeispiele
    • For each pair of statements/images, the first statement (using the Dative for the indirect object) corresponds to the "normal" image on the left; the second statement (using just the Accusative) corresponds to the "zany" picture on the right :)
    • Notice the Dative endings in the "normal" statements!
  • Overhead: "Was leihen Sie wem?" overhead (Partner)
    • Was bedeutet 'leihen'?
    • Time permitting, do a brief role play in which students ask their partner to loan them something, and the partner tries to refuse. Note the phrase "Das ist nett von dir" from the Anlauftext.
