4th lesson on 12th November
From: Edith (Gast)Date: 16.11.2018, 20:03
Hello dear classmates,

As usual a short review of our last lesson. At the beginning of our lesson we were only 6 classmates. Ursula from Steinbach-Hallenberg had an important appointment. Rita was visited by her son and his family.

Waltraud was traveling with her girl friend. Beate,Evelyn and Udo came later, they were stuck in traffic jam. Elfi told us about her holiday in South Africa. We listened to her with interest. We also learnd a few new words: boulder, penguin, ape,brewery.

Our homework for the last lesson was in the textbook on page 40 no.6
The theme was: Saying what happened ? Each one told us what special events he remembered. These were events that are not forgotten. Afterwards we dealt with the logbook entry of Ursula Sch. This was very detailed and as always without mistakes. The time goes fast.

Here is our homework for the next lesson. Textbook page 41 no. 3 to 6.
Have a nice weekend.

See you next Tuesday at 3.30 pm.

Yours Edith

Hello dear classsmates,
Let me summarize what we dealt with in our last lesson.
Our teacher started with some words and their different pronunciation, for example tear (Träne) and tear (reißen), sword, Worcester, Reading (an English town) and some other ones. Every of our students who came a little bit later had to pronounce these words that were to be seen on the blackboard. But none of us succeeded in prounouncing all these words correctly.

After that we read and corrected the logbook entry by Ursula H.-M. It was short, but the most important facts were included.

As we have been practising past progressive and past simple for some weeks Thomas gave us some German sentences to translate into English with these grammar constructions. Besides we also practised the using of prepositions.
The homework on page 42 was checked afterwards.

The next exercise was more demanding for us. We listened to three short English stories and retold them in English (exercise at page 38, number 1d).

To practise the English everyday language we dealt with the On-Board Train Emergency Instructions and the following exercise below it. Additional to this subject was the next exercise on page 40 number 4a. We listened to a phone call and ticked the correct phrases.
There are a lot of everyday emergencies that can happen to you! Look at exercise number 5. Some of us told their experiences with such situations. Waltraud experienced a burning car during her holiday in Spain, Günther a car breakdown because of a defect ignition with his Trabi and Ursula Sch. also a car breakdown on a motorway almost at night.
To get to know other experiences with everyday emergencies by our classmates this will be our homework for the next lesson (number 6 on page 40). Write down your story!

Last but not least Beate told us how she spent the bank holiday on 31st October. She went by tour bus and looked at some towns in the east of Germany like Templin, Boizenburg, Wittenberg and the Goitsch dam.
But the very last subject Thomas brought in: his hiking tour from Metzels via Wasungen to Schmalkalden. We spoke about the location of the Panoramaweg in Wasungen from where he postet a photo on Wednesday.

You see there was a lot to do during our lesson. My report can´t be shorter therefore.
Our next lesson will be on next Monday, 12nd November at 2.30 pm. And don´t forget: the next but one lesson will be on Tuesday, 20th November also at 3.30 pm.

Have a nice week!

Yours, Ursula Sch.

1th lesson on 22th October
From: Waltraud Nagel (Gast)Date: 24.10.2018, 17:59
Hello students,
Today it's my turn to do the logbook entry.
Last Monday we had the first lesson of our new course with our friendly English teacher. And really he was so friendly to donate good cooled sparkling wine for all of us. So we had a funny start into the next semester.

Some days before evelyn celebrated her birthday at home with family and friends. During she was talking about her party we were enjoying the selfmade cake she brought for us. The cake tasted delicous.

But we have also learned something in English. So we read in our book what's to do in an emergency case in a train. Then we repeated and practised some grammatical rules like past progressive and past simple.

Later we compared our homework.
Thomas asked what's easier for us: to translate from English into German or from German into English (or reverse?). Most of us meaned to translate English phrases in our native language is not so difficult.

So - and now to our new homework for the next lesson. Do all the exercices on worksheet no. 5 Past simple.

Have much fun.
See you next monday, October 29 (th) and think of it:
The lesson beginns at 14.30 pm (to 16.00 pm).

Have a nice time!

Best regards

Dear classmates,
We began our lesson with a glass of wine donated by Ursula and talking about the latest happenings. About the terrible accident on the "Wasserkuppe" whith a plane, about the "Kirmes" and about the football game Germany - Netherlands.
Then the work sheet ( Test Paper 3)was compared by us. It turned out that there were stll many questions and problems with the application of the the Present and Past. We still have to practice that.
Documents for practicing will be sent us by Thomas. To look at page 41 was recommended us by Thomas.

Have a nice week, see you on Monday.

Best regards

Hi, folks!
As usual a short review to our previous lesson.
First we personally congratulated Ursula to her birthday.
This was the reason why she couldn't come last week.
Before we got started there was already a short break with coffee and cheesecake.
Well invigorated we checked Ute's logbook entry.
After that it got more difficult though.
The much-loved grammar practice followed.😕
We had to work out the worksheet number 43 for the second time.
Focus was the Passive in all it's possible variations.
We had to dealt therewith the rest of the whole lesson.
I'm really sure I haven't seen this worksheet for the very last time.😂
There is another worksheet "BFS Test Paper 3".
Filling out and bring along to the next lesson!
That's all for now.
I must hurry up. It's my mother in law's birthdays party tonight.
Have a nice time in the meantime.
Bye, yours Udo.

Hello dear classmates,

Here is my short report of the last lesson. At first our teacher asked us of the football events in the last week. But we all are no football fans.
Rita only knew the results oft the different teams.
In this context we talked about the synonyms of football match visitors, poor example as spectators and hooligans.

At next we studied Beates` logbook entry. It was almost free of mistakes.

Then we read and translated the homework on p. 36. rnrnIn our English book of the“ Cultural differences.

In this text non-verbal gestures are described at could cause misunderstandings in different countries.rnrnNow we checked the grammar homework unit 42 and began the Part 42.4. rnrnThe rest of it is to do at home.

At last we studied the unit 43 and tried the section 43.4rnrnAnd now our homework : the grammar worksheet43.1 - 43.4

I hope you had a nice holiday yesterday.

Have a good time till our next lesson.
Yours Ute.

Hello dear classmates,
Here is my logbook entry of our lesson on 24th October. It was a very interesting lesson, because we made many different things.
Edith, Waltraud, Elfi and Ursula H.-M. reported of their holidays. So we could participate in their journeys to the Baltic Sea, Greece and the Dolomites.
Then we dealt with the excellent logbook entry of Ursula Sch.. I`m sure, you will have to correct more mistakes in my entry.
We also read in our textbook about journeys that changed travelling.
The highlight of our lesson was the work with the text of the Beatles-Song "Hey Jude". Günter gave everyone of us a copy and found out interesting background information. We even tried to sing the song.
At the end of the lesson we studied Unit 42 of the grammar worksheet and started solving exercise 42.3.
And here is our homework: Solve all exercises of unit 42 and part A, B, C on page 36 of our textbook.
I hope I see you all healthy next Monday.
Yours Beate

Hello dear classmates,

Sorry, I kept you waiting for my logbook entry of our last lesson on Monday, September 17(th). I hope you could bear it! But here it is.

We started our lesson with vocabulary that resulted from the conversation. As some of our students had been on holidays and were back again Günther was asked to tell about it. He was in Constanz. The questioning was in details and so we even learned what he had had for breakfast.☺ Günter also told us some facts about the cleaning of the river Rhein. As suddenly his telephone was ringing with a special song of The Beatles he got the task to deliver the English text of that song for us to translate in our next lesson.

Then it was Ute`s turn. As she was also absent in our last lesson because she helped with the blood donation she told us what she had to do there. But not enough! We learned why donators go there to donate blood, how much blood they donate, how old they can or must be, if there are disqualifying factors and if they get something for the donation.
During the conversation we practised the Passive Voice because some sentences hadn`t been translated correctly.

Next we dealt with the logbook entry by Evelyn and worked through sentence by sentence. There were only a few mistakes that we all together corrected.
Last but not least we opened our textbooks on page 34 and worked out some exerecises that dealt with Past simple and the using of „much“ and „many“.

At last there is a homework again! ☻ Please read the text A, B and C on page 35 and do exercise number D!

Our next lesson will be on Monday, September 24(th) from 4.15 pm to 5.45 pm.
I´m looking forward to seeing you! Have a nice weekend!

Yours, Ursula Sch.

12th lesson on 10th September 2018

Hello dear friends,

this week we were a very smal group on Monday. Half of our team was on holidays.
The greetings from Waltraud were our first task. Rita had to translate them. She did it perfectly.

Then we looked into the logbook entry. We thought that Waltraud mad some mistakes intentionally, so we had something to do. One problem we found was the handling with "bis". We know 4 possibilities "until", "by", "to" and "see you on",
Furthermore we spoke a bit about the news, such as the disappearance from Daniel Kueblboeck. So we encoutered some words, which we had forgotten (deliberately, intentionally, voluntarily).

The 3.topic we took care of was the homework on page 35 and unit 53: 3+4. A good opportunity for Thomas to check our vokabulary skills.
Because we were so few People Thomas didn't give us any homework.
I wish all classmates a wonderful week.
Yours Evelin
