CBG 1:01 | Saying how you are feeling


Welcome to this first episode of Coffee Break German, our new German course for beginners. In weekly episodes you’ll join native speaker Thomas who’ll be teaching learner Mark in gradual, structured lessons. Our “Cultural Correspondent” Julia and our “Grammar Guru” Kirsten will also join us in each episode to share their knowledge and love of all things German. In this first lesson, Thomas introduces us to the German language, and you’ll learn some useful words and phrases:

  • how to say “hello” and “goodbye”;
  • how to say “how are you?” and how to answer this question;
  • the words for “yes” and “no”, and other useful German words which will come in handy every day.

You’ll also meet the other members of the Coffee Break German team: learner Mark is more used to teaching French and Spanish in Coffee Break French and Coffee Break Spanish; Kirsten, our Grammar Guru and self-confessed grammar geek, will be bringing us regular explanations of the trickier aspects of the German language; and Julia, our Cultural Correspondent, will provide the inside knowledge on all things German, Swiss and Austrian.
