Heute wort: KENNEN
Kennen = to know (a person)
Ex: ”Ich kenne Michael, und ihrem Freunde, Rachel”. (I know Michael, and his girlfriend Rachel)
du kennst… (Ex: Kennst du Dieter?)
er/sie/es kennt… (Ex: Er kennt mir sehr gut)
Kennen is used to say that you know another person. If you want to say that you know, for example, a FACT, you would use the verb “wissen”, which will be covered in a later lesson, as it is an irregular verb.
I’ve had a rather full plate.
A very full plate, indeed.
But I’m here now, and that’s all that matters, right?
Will be posting a few vocabulary words, as well as a refresher on the way to pronounce a word with umlauts. That lesson will be later on tonight, because I want to make a video for you.
I’ll be making a separate YouTube account just for this occasion, so that if you ever need to see any of the material videos, you may do so.
Be sure to tell your friends, if any of them are interested! Tell your followers! :3
So, welcome to this blog and welcome to this online course.
Right now, put yourself in the situation that you’re actually in here. You presently have the vocabulary of a newborn German baby. You don’t know any of it, and that’s OK! That’s why you’re here, and this is how you fix that! SINCE you only have the vocabulary of a baby, we have to start off with BABY STEPS!
When you learned your first language formally, they taught you the ALPHABET! If you need any help with pronunciation, ask me for a private Skype tutoring session! I will be happy to help you. At any rate, here you go.
and let’s not forget…
(When you pronounce an umlaut, you should be making a sort of kissy face)
You still have to do the work yourself :)
But I will be happy to help.
So how do you get started? Go ahead and go through all the links. That should help you get acquainted. Still not getting it? Ask me, and I’ll help you.
Anon is NOT on, because anon doesn’t NEED to be on. There’s no reason to feel embarrassed, everyone is going to mess up. :)
I will have plenty posted for you to learn from in the coming days.
