13th lesson on 3th June
From: Ursula H-M (Gast)Date: 04.06.2019, 21:22
Dear classmates,

Today it's my turn.
Here is my logbook entry of our last lesson.
First Thomas asked each of us how we spend Father's Day and the weekend.

Well, some of us went to a concert, others used the nice weather to hike or visited his friends and our teacher drove his bike to the Ellenbogen to the "Eisenacher Haus".

After that we checked Beate's logbook entry.
It was very detailed. She also gave us an explanation about the difference between puppets and dolls.
The lesson was over quickly, so we couldn't compare our homework.

We see you again on Wednesday 12.06.19 16:15

I wish each of us nice Withsun.
I hope I'll see you all healthly again.

Yours Ursula

Dear classmates,

Today it's my turn to write the logbook entry of our lesson today. First we looked together with our teacher Thomas at the timetable of our next lessons. We musn't forget they will start at 4:15 pm.
We have found in this context : The longer the days the faster the time is running!

The next topic was the election on Sunday. Everyone had to tell when and where he was voting. And there was also a special task for Udo: In the next lesson he'll have to report on all translations of 'Wahllokal' he found.

The next subject was Udo's holiday in Traben -Trarbach near Cochem at the Mosel. This area is known for the cultivation of tasty wine like Riesling.
Our Teacher told us he prepared a cycling tour on the Ascension Day to the "Rhönhäuschen" at the weekend.

Next we had a look on the logbook entry by Ursula Sch. . It was detailed and excelent as always. Waltraud got also a special task: She'll informate us about the polling stations in Breitungen and the different spellings of “youtube” in the next lesson.
We also dealt with a sentence of Evelin's logbook entry the week before (So that we continue enjoy learning ….
It was the day of special tasks. I'll have to speak next week about the difference between puppets and dolls.
As usual we compared our homework. We repeated also the word an phrases of Unit 9 in our textbook and learned with worksheet Unit 31 the different possibilities to use “have to” and “must”. We solved exercises 31.1 and 31.3. Exercises 31.2 and 31.4 are our homework.
So, I hope I didn't forget anything. And you don't forget the new time of beginning next week.

Have a nice time! I hope I'll see you all healthy next Monday.
Yours Beate

11th Lesson on 20th May

11th lesson on 20th May

Dear classmates,

Weather was a great subject to start our lesson with on that day. In this connection Thomas explained the use of the words 'concern', 'regarding' and 'according'.

Then he told us that he had the laziest weekend he had ever had. His computer didn't work so that a lot of data were lost and he was busy with it all day. But some of the data he was able to rescue. How lucky!
Ursula H.-M. mentioned he should rather have taken part in the 'Rennsteiglauf'.
But this wouldn't have solved his big problem.

After that Thomas wanted to know what methods we use to listen to music. Some of us use youtube channel to listen to special music. Some other ones use a new technique like streaming(?), no idea what it is!
And some of us agree in using the „old“ radio or CD player.
Fact is that musical technique will change again and again!

As there are always made grammar mistakes during our talks Thomas used the chance to explain the position of adverbs of frequency in sentences.
According to this question - What were you doing when the rain started? - once more he explained the use of the progressive forms.

The logbook entry by Evelyn was our next topic. Logbook entries are always helpful for learning English because of the mistakes that must be corrected. There was one special sentence that caused us quite a headache. Finally I got the task to translate it until the next lesson. But Thomas posted a link that will be useful for it. Thank you!

In the last part of our lesson we checked our homework that included comparative for one thing and our report about a place we know well for another.
Elfie was impressed by New York, Waltraud liked Weimar, Edith described Krakau, Evelyn experienced Dresden, Beate spoke about Berlin, Ursula H.-M. liked the sights of Weimar, too, Rita gave a report on her last weekend and Ursula Sch. told her impressions on the Alps in Switzerland.

To avoid being bored this week here our homework for the next lesson:
On page 75 no. C, on page 76 no. A,B,C.

Looking forward to seeing you next Monday on the same place and at the same time (9 o'clock).

Have a nice week!

Yours Ursula Sch.

Dear classmates,

On Wednesday we had a quite hard program. First everyone wanted to congratulate Thomas to his birthday and so we had the opportunity to drink a glass of sparling wine.
Thomas wanted to know how long we used to work and who is still working from us.

Then we admired Udo's logbook entry, short and diverting. The 3.item we took care of was the homework in unit 105 exercise 3.
Furthermore we tried to get on with the comparison unit 106. For this we solved exercises 1 and 4.

The exercises no. 2,3,5 are one part of our homework.
So that we continue enjoy learning Thomas started the work with the English book page 72 no. 3a,3b,4a and 4c and page 74 B2 and C.

Here you will find the second part of the homework (page 72: 4b, 4d).

I hope you will have a lot of fun with it!
See you on Monday at 9 o'clock.

Yours Evelin

From: Edith Baier (Gast)Date: 07.05.2019, 18:06
Dear classmates,

Here is my logbook entry of our last lesson.
First we talked about the weather.The question was, is it normal for it to snow in May?
We remembered us that this often happened.
We talked short about the final exam in the last week. For some students it was to heavy. But there were also other opinions.The topic is difficult.

Then Thomas asked each of us what we had experienced in the last both weeks.This was very interesting,because each of us had different experiences.
Afterwards Thomas explained the correct application of "lend and borrow" and of "bring and take".
As in every lesson,we checked the last logbook entry.
Rita had written the entry very good.
Then we checked our homework.
The theme was: California - a superlative state.

In the lesson we treated the comparison of adjectives on page 71 and did some exercises.

Now to our homework to Monday 13th of May:
Page 71 no. 2c The superlative quiz and page 73
PRACTICE no. 1 Natural landmarks

no. 5 Grammar: Comparatives and

Hello together,

It's just raining, good time to do the weekly logbook entry. Here it is.

As often we started our lesson with small talk. The subject we talked about were our Easter experiences. Because of the great weather some of us did a short journey, the others hiked to somewhere or else met relatives and friends at home. Our teacher for exampel did an extremly hiking tour on Rennsteig.

Then we had a look at the logbook entry of Waltraud. She tried hard but as always Thomas found some mistakes.
The next topic was our homework: "family tree". We had to solve exercises two and three at the so named worksheet. Finally we read and translated the text " Penguin Now" and solved task 6. With that we finished our light-hearted tour of April Fool`s jokes and besides we learned something about phrasal verbs, too.

No lesson without homework: read the text in our book on page 70 and solve nr1on page 71.
Remember, our next lesson will be on Monday 6th of May, at 9 o’clock!
Have a nice week!

Yours Rita

6th lesson on 15th april 2019
From: Waltraud (Gast)Date: 24.04.2019, 23:08
Dear classmates,
First I wish all of you happy and sunny Easter-days.
And now let's look back to our last English lesson. First we talked - like every week - about our last Weekend and the cold weather. the most interesting theme brought Evelyn. She was in Leipzig and there she had a very important mission. She was shopping with her daughter in law to-be. They were looking for a wedding Dress for the young woman. but it was difficult. The Bride couldn't decide which kind of dress she really likes - ashortone or a Long one. A white one should it be - that's clear. Oh yeah, that are problems. But Evelyn is very relaxed. She bought her Dress for the marriage of her son in June already some weeks ago. It's a nice long black dress. Ans I#m sure she will be a very good looking mother in law. And I#m also sure the bride will find the right dress for the most beautiful day in her life.

Now to the next topic of the lesson. We read some April-Hoaxes - About a left handed burger, a spagetthi-tree and About a simple trick to turn an black-and-white-TV into a colour ones.

But now seriously again. We repeated phrasal Verbs, adjectives and Adverbs and made some practicle exercises.

At the end of the lesson we talked about family relations. Thomas gave us a sheet with a familiy tree. Our homework are the exercises 2 und 3 at this sheet.

So and now enjoy the Easter-weekend with your Family and/or your friends.

See you on Thursday, 25th April, at 9 pm.

Best regards

5th lesson on 8 April 2019
From: Günter (Gast)Date: 11.04.2019, 09:22
Dear classmates

Here is my logbook entry of our last lesson.

Ute left our course because she has to care for her husband. He is ill. What a pity. We wish her a stressless time.

We checked Elfi's logbok entry. There were some little mistakes, but it wasn't a disaster.

The main content of this lesson was the repetition of phrasel verbs.

We read and translated "The glory of the garden-centre", written by Cilin Beaven. It was a very interesting story.

About the homework look at "April Fools", page 31, No. 3
and in our book page 65, No. 1-6 (exept No. 2).

Have a nice week. Until Monday at 9.00.

Yours Günter

4rd lesson on 1st April 2019
From: Elfi Lachmund (Gast)Date: 03.04.2019, 13:09

On Sunday the time was switched and so we were really awake on Monday morning.

First everyone reported about past weekend. Thomas described his bicycle tour through the Rhön.
Then he asked a student to read out Ursula’s logbook entry, it was without error.

After that Günter and Ursula correctly read the homework. Grammar was the next part we dealt with the worksheet 101.The adjectives and adverbs "well/fast/late, hard/hardly " The exercises 101.1, 101.3 and 101.5 we have completed.

A worksheet was us given by Thomas. On the back we found "Phrasal verbs in this article". Günter read out these verbs.

A homework assignment is to learn these phrasal verbs, and as a second homework we should do exercises 101.3 and 101.4 from worksheet 101.

I would like to remind you, that you print out "April Fools" and bring it to the next hour.

Have fun with homework
Yours, Elfi

3rd lesson on 25th March 2019

Hello dear students,

Today it´s my turn again to summarize our last English lesson.

As usual our teacher Thomas started with a small talk in English about some subjects. For instance how we came to our lesson this day as there was a traffic jam in town.

Then Elfie talked about her car accident last week. Some other students let us know what they did at the last weekend because the weather was so fine and the temperature so high. In this connection our garden friends told about their start of the garden season.

Football was the next theme. Fortunately Evelyn is one of the football fans in our group and so she was able to answer Thomas´ questions about it. By the way, it was very interesting to learn where footballers get their high salaries from. Club fees seem to be a part of them. Günter knew that a club fee for a golf club is 20 000 € a year. You see, our English course is also good for uncovering mysteries.

After that we dealt with the logbook entry by Ursula H.-M. There were some little mistakes that we corrected together.

The next subject to deal with was our homework, the testpaper that we checked, and personal profiles that we read out.

The exercise nb. 4 on page 63 in our textbook describes an online language course. We had to match the 6 points in an advert with the explanation on the right and then we spoke about online courses.

Grammar was the last part of our lesson. It was about the use of adjectives and adverbs on the grammar sheet nb. 100 A. With exercise nb. 100.1 we finished our lesson.

Here is our homework: Please continue this subject and do exercises 100.2 to 100.4.

I´d like to remind you of the beginning of our lesson next Monday: It´ll start at 9 o´ clock a.m.

Have a nice week!
Yours, Ursula Sch.

Dear classmates,

This week it's my part to give you a short review to our last lesson.
Main topic is still chapter 7 in the coursebook.
It deals with vocabulary of food and drink in combination with using the Present perfect or Past simple.

But first we celebrated the last week's birthday children Beate and Günther traditionally with sparkling wine and cake.
Meanwhile we had a short chat about the current awful weather.
As usual we had a look on the logbook entry and spoke about the news.
We spoke about this and that and there was enough time to made some mistakes, too.

After that we solved some exercises from the textbook.
You'll find the current homework on page 60.
It's number B and C.
At the very end of the lesson, Thomas said: "It couldn't harm to have a look on page 61 in our textbook".

There, there is a short summary of the important words and phrases.

Have a nice week.
See you soon, yours Udo.

Dear classmates,

Here is my report of our last English lesson. First each of us told how he spent the week and the weekend.
The weekend was very sunny with temperatures about ten degrees above zero. So anyone was outdoor for a walk or a stroll.

Then we dealt with Evelin´s logbook entry. There were almost no mistakes.

The next topic was the repetition of the worksheet Unit 139 "Phrasal verbs with out". In connection we compared the homework exersices 139.3 and 139.4.

This was grammar enough for all of us. So we finished the lesson with reading in our textbook at page 54. There we learned something about food, drink and baking.

Our homework are the exercises 2 a and 2 b at page 55.

I hope I will see you all next Monday at 4.15 pm. Wish you a nice and healthy week.

Dear classmates,

I'm sorry for the delay! But we were in Dresden on Thuesday and Wednesday. On Monday our report about the weekend was very short. Because of the bad weather nobody went for big walks. Thomas wanted to know whether we celebrate the Valentin's day and if we give presents to our partner.
Rita's logbook entry was our second assignement. There were only some little mistakes.

The main work was the story about "Miss Vivian" in Spotlight 2/15. It took a long time to read and translate it. So we had not much more time for the grammar. We took care of Phrasal Verbs with "out" in Unit 139 and filled in exercises No 139.1 and No 139.2.

No 139.3 and 139.4 shall be our homework.
Now I have to say Goodbye.
I hope you will have a nice week!
Our next appointment will be on Monday at 16.15.

That time you can sign in for the next course at Frau Seifert.

13 th lesson on 28 th January

Hello dear classmates,

Her is my report oft the last English lesson. As always first we talked about our activities on last weekend.The weather was bad , it rained or snowed, the temperature was about the
freezing point. So we all were relaxing at home.
Next we read ´the report of Ursula. It was very good, but our teacher neverless found few small mistakes. Then we studied and translated the story „ After along wait“ about
Oliver Jamie. He is an owner of 30 restaurants around the world and sells further pans
und dishes too. Past that we started the grammar on the worksheet138 with the
Phrasal verbs2. We tried to fill in the exercises 138.1 and 138.2.
The exercises 138.2 and 138.4 are our homeworks , additionell still in our English book
on page 55 the section A,B, C.

12th lesson on 21st January, 2019

Hello, dear classmates,

Here is my logbook entry of our lesson on last Monday. Let´s remember!

Because it was very cold with temperatures below zero during the last days we started with a small talk about the temperature in Schmalkalden and the surrounding area. We were astonished about the temperature differences.

We went on talking on some sports events at the last weekend and the results. Unfortunately there were only a few ones who were informed about it.
After that we checked Waltraud´s logbook entry. Well done! There weren´t any bad mistakes.

Then we checked our homework for that lesson that dealt with phrasal verbs. We had to complete some sentences and to fill in a noun or pronoun. The word order in this grammar construction
wasn´t quite clear yet and so Thomas had to explain it once more.

As we don´t like grammar so much our teacher continued the lesson with an article by a British writer in the journal „Spotlight“. In this text the author writes about personal electronic devices, for instance smartphones, iPads, iPods and similar ones and their extreme use nowadays. The names of them remind us of fruits. Therefore the writer sometimes writes ambiguously. And so some sentences weren´t easy to understand at once.

Last but not least we had to translate a test paper. As we didn´t finish it the last part of it will be our homework. We are to describe our neighbour from opposite (in our English lesson), not the place where we live how it is demanded in the paper.
And furthermore take a quick look at another article: „After a long wait“.
Have much fun with it!

Our next lesson will be on Monday, 28th January, at 4.15 pm.

Have a nice week!

Yours, Ursula Sch.

Hello dear classmates,
Hope you remember our last English lesson. If not I'll try now to give a short summery. But it may be I've also forgotten something since last Monday.
But I'll give my best.
We had to read two logbook entries, one from Edith and Elfie's. There were only some little mistakes. But that was no problem. A good way to learn is to learn from the mistakes.
Than we compared our homework. One exercise was how to use “since” and “for”. In addition we should describe our home. Udo began, but everybody had to tell us from their house, how long they've been lived there, is there a garden around or not and so on.

But there was also something new at the last lesson. New – okay, let's say a new repetition. The keyword is “phrasal verbs” and its a very difficult topic. Exercise, exercise, exercise is the slogan.
I think, you must feel it, you can't learn it like grammatical rule, you can't memorize.

Our homework is on worksheet Unit 137, no. 137.4.

Have a good week and a nice weekend until we see us again.

The next lesson on Monday, 21st January , starts at 16.15 pm.

Best regards

Hello dear friends,

Like every year, we started the first lesson in the New Year with the same procedure - Thomas sponsored sparkling wine.
Than all classmens reported about their christmas days and about their new year eve. We had not to exercise grammar. We read and translated a story from a worksheet,was given us by Thomas.
At the end we worked with a another worksheet and there were exercises to practise talking about sales,shopping and department stores.
Here is our homework for the next lesson. Textbook page 49 no.4 to 6.

Have a nice week, see you on Monday at 9:00 am.

Hello dear classmades,

here is my report on our last English lesson before the Christmas holidays.

There were cookies on the table and for each of us a small sip of sparkling wine.
Unfortunately, Beate was missing.We wish her all the best.

First we delt with idioms and how to translate them from German into English.
Thomas gave each of us five small cards with three translations of one German idioms.But only one translation was correct on each card.
We had to find out this one.We had much fun with it.

Then each of us told how we will celebrate Christmas. Are visitors coming or you are at home along? What will we eat for Christmas? Have we bought all the gifts already? What do we give to our children?

Afterwards we checked the logbook entry of Beate. It was okay.
Then we checked our homework.
Worksheet Unit 12 nr.12.1 and 12.2 .
The tasks nr.12.3 and 12.4 have been solved in the class.

At the end of the English lesson we dealt with the worksheet Unit 11 and the letters A,B,C and D.

As homework it makes sense to look at the worksheet again.
When do we use "since" and when do we use "for"?

I wish you Merry Christmas and all the best for the new year. Stay healthy and take care of yourself.

The next lesson will be on Monday 7th January 2019 at 9 am.

Best regards
Yours Edith

Then we compared our homework and repeatet which things, machines and furniture you can find in the kitchen.

The next topic was "if-sentences" on worksheet unit 38. This was difficcult for some of us and me too.

At the end of the lesson we worked with worksheet unit 12. We made the exercises 12.1 and 12.2..
The rest is our homework.
I wish all a nice third Advent. And don't forget:

Hello dear classmates,

This is the short report of our last lesson.
First we started with coffee, cake and sparkling wine donated by Ute. She celebrated her birthday the day before. Then we checked our homework. Therefor we used the worksheet Thomas posted us. We had to translate sentences from German in to English and reverse.

After that we got an other worksheet. Some of us had to read the text;" Somewhere at sea". It wasn't difficult to understand the story. The first part of our homework for next Monday you can find on the reverse side of this worksheet: page 15, nr.: 1b " Build a dialouge"!

We continued our lesson by working with the textbook at page 43 and 44. But before that we exchanged our experiences with the local newspapers. Then we solved all exercises at the two pages.

And here the second part of homework: repeat and learn vocabulary at page 45!
Have fun with it!

See you next Monday at 9 o'clock.
Bye then, yours Rita

Hello dear friends,

Today it's my turn to report about our lesson on Tuesday.
Once again we had something to celebrate, Edith's birthday. There were coffee and cake and not even sparkling wine was missing.
In the first part we spoke about different topics. Waltraud told us from her holiday with her friend and

Thomas asked about our preparation for Christmas and New Year's Eve, There were some good ideas for Christmas presents and for good feasts. Furthermore Thomas wanted to know whether we liked winter or summer. After our discussion we reviewed Edith's logbook entry and then the homework.

Last but not least we completed a worksheet. We managed only the front page. The back page was assigned to complete at homework.

All classmates who did not attend this lesson will receive it by email from Thomas.
Our next meeting will be on Monday at 9 a clock.

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

3rd lesson on 5th November

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Hello boys and girls ,

today I give you a summery of our last lesson und tomorrow I will fly with my husband to Greece, to Crete.
I hope you have a little bit of fun reading my logbook entry and you can learn something from my mistakes.

The last lesson was stressfull for us: two hours repetition of grammaticle rules.
We talked about verbs that are followed by -ing and about those verbs we had to use with ing and an infinitive form of a verb.
Our friendly Englisch teacher explained the rules and we had to do some exercises - following the slogan: Practise makes perfect. (oder: Uebung macht den Meister)

Our nice theacher Thomas was afraid we could forget what we've just learned. And so he decided to give us some homeworks for practice.
And this is what you have to do until the next lesson on monday, 10th September 2018, at 16.15 pm:

worksheet unit 53, No. 53.3. and 53.4.
and in our network book page 32, no. 5a.

So, that's all for the day.

Best regards

Hello dear classmates,

here is my logbook entry about the last lesson.

The summer holidays are over. The time of learning starts again. For the first English hour after the holidays, our group met at Weidebrunner Gasse 13 in SM. Almost all of our English course is known for this beautiful old house. We thank Rita very much, because she makes it possible for us to meet from time to time.

We were very happy to welcome Elfi Lachmund as a guest in our group. Maybe she likes us and she becomes a member of our group. She is welcome.
Since our guest wants to know for sure who we are.

Thomas asked that we tell about us. In a few words told Evelyn, Ute, Rita, Ursula Holland-Merten, Edith, Günter and Udo from their lives. Where were we born, where did we go to school, which career path did we go? We also reported on our private life situation. When did we retire? What are our hobbies?

Over tea, coffee and teabags, we experienced a very informative English lesson in a very relaxed atmosphere. We practiced talking outdoors (??) and with the help of Thomas we made better mistakes.
I wish you all a good week.

I wish our sick and prevented classmates a speedy recovery.

I´m looking forward to seeing you again on Monday, the 27th of August in the VHS.

Best regards from Edith

Hello dear classmate,

Here is my logbook entry about the last lesson.Our classmates Ursula 2nd ,Evelyn, Kerstin and Guenter were missing.
At the beginning,we repeated what is right or wrong in the English language.
I think I write it down.
to be or not to be
have worked or worked
have worked - immer noch oder gerade beendet
= present perfect
worked - gestern, zuletzt
= simple past

from or of
ly or not ly

at or in or to
too or (not) either

A: I can swim - I can`t swim
B: I can swim, too - I can`t swim either

So I can`t - Neither can I
Me too - Me neither

from: woher
of : wessen (Genitiv)
example: The name of the town
The letter from Amerika

example: usually
I usually work on Friday.
He`s a usual man.
He`s usual.

example : am
I'm a slow driver.
I'm slow.
I drive slowly.

We take "at or in" if we can ask "Wo?". A place
We take "to" if we can "wohin". A direction

Then we talked about Ursula's logbook entry.
After that Thomas gave us worksheets,which we completed.
Nr.: 2 with the headline:

"Please complete the table with the right simple present from" and
No.: 3 with the headline: " Fill in the right answer".

You can find our homework in the textbook on page 31 no. 3 a and no .3 b as well as on worksheet no. 1 with the headline:

Hello dear classmates,
here is my summary of our last English lesson on Monday. As usual we met in the floor of the building of the district administration and told each other the last experiences we had.

Some students were back from their holidays and had a lot to talk. Our teacher has had to wait for us in the classroom for some minutes. Sorry, Thomas! As always he started the lesson with the questioning. First we told about the holidays. Beate and I spent some time on the Baltic Sea, Beate in Kühlungsborn and I in Kolobrzeg (Kolberg) in Poland. As my journey was combined with a health resort we spoke about some health insurance companies and how they support the treatments. Kerstin as a specialist gave us some information about the insurance company she works for.

Another subject of our talk was typical family names in Steinbach-Hallenberg, Schmalkalden and some surrounding villages. Then we spoke about some houses in the street "Steinerne Wiese". As we didn`t have exact knowledge about the houses' history Ute got the "thankful" task to deal with it and give a lecture about these houses in our next lesson.

Thomas told us his funny or exciting experience with a phone company and its dubious efforts to sell contracts to users. On this occation he gave us a warning never to enter into a contract with phone companies without beeing well informed on the conditions. Other subjects we discussed, concerned the strawberry and cherry harvest and as usual on Monday the Tatort thriller. Unfortunately only 4 students watched this film.
So it was a short discussion on it.

Then we worked through a helpful list with the vocabulary on feelings, that Ute had printed for all students. Thank you, Ute! After that we dealt with the loogbook entry written by Waltdraut. In this connection Thomas drawed our attention to the difference between the words „to lie“ (liegen) and „to lay“ (legen).

Last but not least we repeated grammar, especially Past simple with the help of worksheets.

You can find our homework on the worksheet number 5,2 and 5,3.

And don`t forget: Our next lesson will be on Monday, 11th June at 4.15 pm. Have a nice week!
Yours, Ursula 2nd

Hello dear classmates,

today it's my first time to report about our lesson. The last lesson was full of repetition of grammatic rules and the use auf prepositions. It was very interesting for me because I'd forgotten so much.
But there was also enough time to talk about our last weekend - or about holiday like Edith did. She was at Lake Constance, visited Insel Mainau, was in Austria and Switzerland and so she saw many beautiful and important places. She told about her experiences.

Ute went to the market last Saturday und bought some plants for her garden.
Last but not least Rita told us a funny story about her own "lack of memory" or better about her forgetfulness.
Three times she had to go into the city by bike to buy something. First time she had forgotten the key oft the bike lock and so she drove back home to get it. Back in the city again she missed her wallet. It was still laying at home. So she went back again and startet her tour the third time. I think all of us know such situations.

Hope we have all things we need when our next lesson beginns in Monday 4th june at 9 am.

Have a nice weekend!

Hello dear classmates,

It"s my turn to report about our lesson. Since today our group has a new member. His name is Günter. You're welcome Günter!

The first highlight was the royal marriage in London. Especially Ute was very good informed. Most of us found Megan's dress marvelous, beautiful and unpretentious. Harry was wearing a gala-uniform.

The next topic was the long weekend. Everyone gave a short summary of their Whitsun.
Thomas hiked on Brocken, Udo visited his daughter, Waltraud was at her daughter too and Ute stayed at home and enjoyed the view from her terrace. Only Ursula had to work in her pension. Two classmates were in holiday: Edith in Mersburg on Lake Constance and Ursula in Kolberg, Poland.

After this issue we took care of the homework. We enumerated our activities under the heading Leisure, Family, Household and Personal hygiene and estimated how much time we spend on each of those activities.
The last point was the logbook entry from Beate. Thomas found some little mistakes- as always. Unfortunately Beate had an appointment. So she couldn't tgo with us to Eiskönig. Thomas invited us because his birthday. What a yummy end of this English lesson.

Our next meeting will be on Monday 28th May at 15:45.
I wish you a nice week! Yours Evelin

Hello dear students
Here is a short summary of our last lesson.
The main topic was how we spent Ascension Day and the long weekend after that day.
Our teacher asked each of us what they did. Ursula, the 2nd was on the Ellenbogen and Rita on the Gläser. Udo celebrated Men's Day on the Maienluft. Kerstin went on a bicycle tour around Trusetal and Waltraud relaxed in her garden. Evelin was at a birthday party that weekend and so on.
I had brought a written description of the activities for several days. We had guests and so there was much to report. We corrected the mistakes in my report together.
We spoke about Rita's incisive logbook entry after that. The time pasted too fast. We couldn't compare the homework anymore. So we'll have to do it in our next lesson.
Only Ursula the 2nd has to prepare an elaboration about reflexive verbs after her holidays.
So; that was all.
I'm looking forward to seeing you all after Whitsun.
Yours Beate

Hello together,

here is the weekly report of our first lesson in the new course.

First we welcomed three new students in our group: Christa from Steinbach- Hallenberg, Waltraud from Breitungen and Kerstin from Trusetal. I'm sure they will enrich our conversation course!
And so it wasn't really a surprise that we had to introduce each other. Beate spoke about Evelyn, Udo about Edith and so on. Then our teacher had a lot of questions to our experiences during the last (English- free) weeks. Edith prepared herself in writing and so everyone translated a part of her text into German.Then we translated the extensive logbook entry of Ursula 2nd and checked the homework.

By the way, here is the homework for our next lesson: textbook page 28 nr.:A read / nr.: B, C and D please fill in!

Have fun with it but if you do it don't lose your " work-life balance".

Bye then, Rita

Hello dear classmates,

today it's my turn again to summarize our last Monday lesson. It was the last lesson of the course before we'll start a new one on 7th May.

First we spoke about the weather and its caprioles but especially about the sunny days at the last weekend. Our teacher wanted to know which of us started the garden season. Ute and Udo couldn't bear it an so they started working in their gardens. As Thomas went on a long hike and came on his way back via Wasungen he asked Udo some questions about this small town. Then he wanted to know how we spent the last weekend. After that we spoke about our plans at Easter.

The logbook entry that was done by Ute was our next subject. As we started a new chapter about our hobbies in our last but one lesson we should write down some sentences about it as homeweork. Everybody of us read out their report and so we learnt a lot about our classmates' freetime activities. It was very interesting and informative.

We went on with some expercises on the worksheets 14 and 16. These exercises dealt with present continuouse and present simple. This topic was continued by exercises 4 on page 23, and 3 on page 25 and exercises A1, A2, B1, B2 and B3 on page 26 of our English book. Then we listened to a tape and answered the questions in exercise 5 on page 25. In exercise 5b we put the lines in the right order and in exercise 5d we practised a dialogue about a meeting with a partner.

Exercise 4 dealt with the word order in questions. In exercise 5 we assigned the words "yes" or "no" to the right sentence. You see, we had a lot to do!

All students of our course are keen on continuing their English studies in a new course. And so our teacher made us happy with a new homework: exercises 6 and 7 on page 25 an all exercises on page 27. Our new course will start on 7th May at 9 o' clock. Let's keep in touch by WhatsApp or otherwise.
I wish you a nice time by then and our teacher wonderful holidays!

Yours, Ursula Sch.

Hello dear classmates
Our last lesson was a total normal one, whithout coffee,
cake and sparkling wine. At first our teacher asked the
students how they spended the last weekend.

about the new word “upcycling”.It means :

the old GDR.

Hello dear classmates,
let me summarize what we have done in our last English lesson. First our teacher Thomas wanted to know where Ursula`s (Ho.-Me.) surname comes from and if there´s a familiy tree. So we had a short talk about family names. Then Thomas started a talk about the Olympic Games and especially about ice hockey. After that he wanted to know who had seen the last Tatort - thriller and if it is worth watching. I began to tell how the film started and which persons were involved. Unfortunately for Thomas I told who the murderer was. No suspense any more! Sorry! Then Edith told us that she had her hair cut last saturday. And this was our next topic: A talk about women`s visit to a hairdresser`s. Thomas learnt that a woman needs on average (with waiting time) about 3 hours. What a waste of time - might has been his thought! Udo noticed that he needs only 20 minutes including washing. Another difference between men and women! Then we told about the first school day and how the girls wore their hair at that time, long or short. Udo was asked to remember which concert he visited last. This question led to a talk about the band Dire Straits and their songs. After that our teacher read Rita`s loogbook entry. It was perfect! Then we dealt with our homework. The vocabulary refered to our jobs and the grammar to the simple present. The worksheet was a real challenge and therefore we practised the use of too, either, neither and negative sentences.
The homework for our next lesson you will find on a worksheet too: unit 43, exercises 43.3 to 43.5.
The next lesson will be on Monday, 5th March at 4.15 p.m.
I wish you a nice and interesting week and a wonderful weekend.
See you later!
Yours Ursula Sch.

Logbook the third attempt, better late than never!

Hello together,

here the short comment to our last lesson. The main topics in our conversation company were: the Olympic Games, memories of our own wedding, thoughts to our best and worst jobs. It was a good mixture at all. On the side poor Udo had to translate the whole logbook entry by Beate. Hi did a good job. Then we checked the homework and refreshed some Grammar: The Present simple. Our homework for tomorrow I`ve already posted in our WhatsApp community. See you Monday afternoon.

By then, yours Rita

From: Beate (Gast)Date: 19.02.2018, 21:39
Hello classmates,
I'm the first logbook writer in our English Week. Remember with me what we did in our English course today.
First we noticed that our classmate Udo had the day before his birthday. And none of us thought of it and none of our group congratulated him with WhatsApp. Shame on us. Of course we made up the congratulations and wished him the best. Udo baked a delicious cake for us despite our failure and he also had coffee for us.
Of course we worked again to improve our English skills.
First we spoke about the Olympics in South Korea and the results of our athletes . Then everyone told how he spent the weekend. We also spoke about our homework. We worked out profiles of Barack Obama, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Steven Spielberg . So we learned a lot of interesting things.
Then we repeated with our teacher Thomas the English words for family members and relatives and wrote the family tree of Asif.
Our homework for Thursday is reading page 14 and 15 of our textbook and the exercises 1c and 1d on page 15.
I'm looking forward to see you all on Thursday and I hope Ute and Ursula are well again.
Best regards
Yours Beate

Dear classmates,
Today it's my turn to report about our last English lesson.
First, Beate gave us a very interesting feature about Valentinsday.
Then, Thomas asked Udo about the carnival in Wasungen.
Everyone told what he saw and heard about the Olympic Games.
The next topic was the housework (page 8 and 9).
The grammar part was very difficult. We repeated the verbs "be" and "have" with all their tenses. For that we made the tasks on page 10.
Rita read the text on page 11 and we were surprised who scored best on the survey. The housework for this week is topic �B� on page 11.
Our next date is on Monday the 19th at 16:15.
But we have �English week�, so that we�re going to meet on Thursday too.
I wish you all a nice weekend!

Hi guys, I won the jackpot last lesson.😂
So, I'm the logbook author this time.
What took place on previous Thursday?
As usual we spoke about our activities last week .
Main topic was the weather and the trips into winter wonderland.
The good news is that the sun is back again.🌞
Then we were reading out the calendar sheets.
After that it was time for a break!
We were spoiled by Ute with self-made cookies and real coffee.
Thank heaven!
We didn't have drinking the dire brew from the automatic coffee maker.
Furthermore we checked the homework and solved some exercises from the textbook.
The new homework is No.4b, 4c on p. 8 and the total p. 9.
Now I have to hurry up, because the carnival parade begins soon.
Till next Thursday!

Hello dear classmates,
Here is my report from our lesson yesterday.
Again we enjoyed the beautiful view of our town Schmalkalden. For some of us, the names of neighberhoods and streets were unknown.
At the beginning of our lesson Thomas checked some vocabulary words.That is important to us.
Then we read the report about the last lesson in our logbook. The report was very detailed, thank you, Ursula, the 2nd.

After that we checked our homework. All our classmates had read and translated the texts on pages 102 and 103.
The story on page 102 was very interesting and we experienced matches that we did not know.
We learned a lot from the content of page 103 .

Thomas asked us for many new vocabulary words and expressions. Thomas asked questions about the text and we answered it.

Then we have read some funny calendar sheets (Jokes).
With the exercise on page 104 "Test yourself 3" we shot down the textbook "English network 3 .
We started working in the new textbook "Network Refresh Now A 2 ". The exercise on page 6 nr. 1 b was solved in class our lesson.

Thomas again explained the importance of the helpers: have, be, do,will .
At the end of the lesson we did exercises according to the motto: What do you know about your classmates ?

Hello dear classmates,

I'd like to give you a short summary on our last lesson. That lesson took place in a room we hadn`t seen yet before. We were very surprised at the wonderful view out of the big windows. As we didn`t exactly know some of the buildings we saw from this perspective we speculated on what buildings that could be. At the beginning of the lesson I gave my report on the last few weeks because we hadn`t had enough time in the last lesson. When it was my turn to tell about it time was over. After that we had a talk about the weather. A short time ago there was a very stormy day that caused damage.

Then we answered a lot of Thomas’ questions in order to practise the English language. Thomas taught us several new words or expressions during the individual talks. Especially interesting was Edith`s information on a kitchen utensil named Quick Chef. Later She sent photos on it by WhatsApp because we couldn’t imagine this kitchen wonder.
Thomas asked Edith for the recipe about potato fritters. After that we checked our homework of the last two lessons. There were many tasks to be done. They concerned grammar, role play and a story in English.

For the next lesson we`ve got homework, too: first a story on page 102 to read and translate and second the tasks on page 103.

Our next lesson will be on Thursday, February 1st at half past three p.m.
See you then, have a good time!
Yours, Ursula 2nd

Dear classmates
Yesterday we met in Weidebrunner Gasse in the half-timbered-frame-house. Before we came, Rita had excellently prepared the meeting. The room was warm and the coffee was almost done. Everyone got the translation of the flyer of the house from her.
At first we congratulated Edith to her birthday and drunk a glass of sparkling wine to her health. Then we had a lot of fun with the reports about the last three weeks. Everyone talked about some events in this time.
The second part was to translate and repeat the logbook entry from Ursula.
Our next appointment is in Café Endter in Schmalkalden on 18th of December at 4 pm.
Beginning with the new year we will not meet in the morning on Mondays anymore. We will probably get a new time in afternoon. Thomas will tell us next time. He gave us two sheets with exercises for homework. The ones who were not at the meeting will get these tasks via email.
I hope you will have some good days !

Hello dear classmates,
today it`s my turn to write the report on our last lesson.

On this occasion I want to tell you and our teacher Thomas that I enjoy practising English together with you. There`s a pleasant atmosphere in this course and this has made it easier for me to join.
I told you that I haven`t spoken the English language for more than 30 years. I have forgotten so much and therefore I was very excited in my first lesson. But all of you had been very kindly. Thank you!

But now let`s remember our last lesson on Wednesday.
We started with a talk about a big event in our town on Tuesday. There had been celebrated the 500th anniversary of the reformationrnin the church and on the market place. Some of our students had taken part in the service and in the event on the market after that. And some of them had listened to a concert in the afternoon.

In the next part of our lesson we read the report that had been written into the logbook by Beate.
Our lesson continued with the reports on the last weekend experiences of every one of us.

During break we celebrated Rita`s birthday with sparkling wine, coffee and cake. By the way, it`s a nice tradition!

We used the last part of our lesson for translating the leaflet about the half-timbered experience house in Weidebrunner Gasse 13 in Schmalkalden.

Rita had diligently prepared the translation so that we could go through sentence for sentence. As the german text hadn`t been clear or unequivocal (unmissverständlich) it took us a lot of time to translate some sentences so that English speaking tourists can unterstand them. Some Words are difficult to translate because they are very special from architecture. But we finised it! Rita has got the task to write the translation once more with all corrections or changes. rnOur next lesson will be in the half-timbered house in Weidebrunner Gasse 13 on November 20th at 4 p.m.

I´m looking forward to it. Have a good time by then!

Yours Ursula 2nd

Hello dear classmates,

remember with me our last English lesson.
We had a nice time. Evelin and Ursula had their birthday in October. We congratulated and wished them luck and much health. We drank a glas of sparkling wine and ate the good tasting cake, they had baked.

But we also did something to improve our English skills. First everyone told what he has done last week and the weekend. Our teacher Thomas reported about his long hike through the Rhön and the Thüringen Forst.

After a short break we read the text on page 97 in our textbook and translated him. Then we listened a call from Donna in the Staates. She phoned Mike in England. We had to answered the questions on page 96 number 4 about this call.
For some of us it was hard to unterstand everything. I think we still have to practice that.
And hurray, the teacher forget the homework.

Glad to see you all next Wednesday

We are amazed for British humour always again.Then we talked about topics like weekend on May 1st and family events like confirmation and " youth- orders" in our past. After break we practised some tasks on worksheets. Finaly Thomas gave us the homework: worksheet, page 4-5, nr.: 2a/ 2b. At the end of our lesson we had to say goodbye to Quafae. She has to finish the course because of her holiday next week. Later on she has to work on Monday. We`ll miss her much!

However we`ll have our next lesson on Monday, May`15th. Unfortunelity I can`t say anything for our guide-tour on Tuesday. The receptionist of the tourist- niformation wasn`t able to give me any clear information until now. But it works and I´m confident.

At first our teacher distributed calendar sheets to reading and translating.

Than he asked us how everyone splent the Easter holidays. Some of us travelled to west and east of Germany, the other celebrated with their family and relatives at home. Our teacher wandered with his son and grandchild to the Wasserkuppe. But everywhere the weather was cool and rainy. The Easter meal mainly consisted of lamb, green beans and dumplings or of salmon with potatoes and asparagus or salad. Only Ouafae took part on a barbecue with salad party.

Later we checked the homework on page 98 nr.2 At last Rita gave us an overview about expressive words how great or fantastic. We were excited about this. Than the lesson was finished and our teacher forgot to give homework us! Yeah !

Hello together,
our last lesson was also a very long lesson and I would like to give you a brief summary of it. First we talked about different topics. Then Evelyn corrected the logbook entry of Edith. Both did it very well and Thomas gave Edith mark 2+. After that we compared our homework. In addition we learned the different possibilities how to use the future in English: will-future, going to future, present progressive and simple present. We practised that on page 92 and had to find out the future events in the dialogue between Donna and Mike. Everyone had to say sentences in the future. We also listened to a dialogue about radio newsflash. It was not so difficult to understand and so we could solve the tasks 3 and 3a. Thomas gave us calendar sheets; we learned new vocabulary and laughed about the jokes. But then we needed a break. Udo had already prepared the coffee for us. He is the best. After the break Thomas gave us a very interesting topic: the internet. We discussed about online banking, make purchases and pay on the internet and work with the computer. Maybe we can speak next sometimes about younger and older people who play every day on the computer. Then we solved the tasks on page 93/4b, 6 and 7. At last Rita read the text on page 94 about present progressive and we did the exercises on page 94 and 95/ 5.
And here is our homework for the next week: page 93/5
Write down three or more warnings you would give people in one of this situation. Have fun with it.
Have a nice week

Hello dear classmates,
here is the overview of our last English hour.
We sincerely hope that Ursula is back with us at the next English hour.
As in the last lesson, each of us has read a joke.
We were amazed at the English humor.
Thomas asked us questions on varions topics, which we should answer.
The aim of these exercises is to speak a lot. This is very good, but I find it very difficult to speak.
Before and after the coffee break we worked with our textbook.
We repeated rules of grammar and checked our homework.
In this lesson, too, a hearing test was conducted to help us understand the language better.
The homework for the next lesson can be found on page 94 nr. 2 and page 95 nr. 3.
I wish you a good week and look forward to seeing you again at 8.30 o`clock Monday, March 20th.

Good morning classmates !

So, let's look back at our last lesson.
The bad news first. Jörg have to leave the course because he haven't got any time.
He's job-related really busy now. What a pity.
Unfortunately there are only two men in the course now, our teacher and me.
So, "all men who want to learn perfect english are Welcome".
"English training in relaxed atmosphere with guaranty of sucsess"
I should earn money with PR-campaigns.😂
Okay, what have we done last lesson?
First wie spoke about our activities at the past weekend.
Next we checked the homework.
It was a bit tricky because there were some possibilities to solve the exercises.
Then we worked with the textbook.
Main topic was working world especially employers and employees.
Furthermore we translated a conversation, that we heard before, into German.
Homework: page 82 number 5a, read the article "... School of butlers"
See you on Monday, bye-bye, yours Udo🙂

Hello together ,
our last English lesson in 2016 was a history lesson.
And it was a very special one.
We visited the old half timbered house in Weidebrunner alley 13 in Schmalkalden. We got lots of new information about the house. It is one of the five oldest houses in Thuringia, it was built in 1369. The history of the building is much preserved and still visible.
And who made it possible?
Our classmate Rita. She works in the society who takes care of it.
She's guided us through the house.
We acted English tourists. And so she had to speak in English.
And I must say she did it very well!!!
After that we had a little Christmas party in a nice room in the upper floor. Rita, thank you so much for everything.
I'm looking forward to see you in 2017. Have a nice Christmas time and a Happy New Year.
Bye yours Sibylle

Dear English students,
here is my report about our last lesson.
In our speaking part we talked about different topics, for examble the new project of Jörg's company, our meals and the news in our hometowns. Then we read and translated an article by Donna Ashby (page 19). We listened to four people talking about how they commute to work in London (page 18 number 3). It was difficult for us to understand what they said, so we heart it three times and translated it also. Our next task was page 18 number 4. We wrote new words about kind of transport in our personal dictionary. At last we compared our homework at page 20 number 1.
And here is our homework for the next lesson: page 20 / 3
Don't forget: Our next lesson is on Tuesday, 9.00 am

Dear Antje, we wish you all the best and hope we'll see you very soon.

Have a nice time

I found a poem by William Butler Yeats

HAD I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Dear students,

Thomas wanted to have a long report - here it is: We met to our last lesson before the summer break for a guided city tour on Monday, 29th June, 9 o'clock at the market place of Schmalkalden. Our guide, Mrs. Werner, showed us some of the most important historical buildings of the town, for example: Town Hall and St. George's Church. We had a view at the former Reformed School at Kirchhof 2.

In addition we saw the houses where Melanchton ( Steingasse) and Luther (Lutherplatz) lived during their residence in the town.
We were very imperessed because of so much nice half timbred facades of the late medivial road network of the town.
Mrs. Werner also told us a lot about the history and some famous celebrities who visited the town in earlier centuries, such as Landgravine Elisabeth (Saint Elisabeth), the counts of Henneberg, Landgrave Phillipp of Hessen, M. Luther, Melanchton, Bugenhagen.
Latters visited the town because of the Reformation in the 16th century.

The town's name is closely linked to the events surrounding M. Luther's Reformation.

In addition we heared something about Schmalcaldic League, a union of German Protestant princes and free imperial and Hanseatic cities, founded in Schmalkalden between December 1530 to January 1531.

Finally we visited the Hessenhof/ Neumarkt: It's famous for a reproduction of the depicition of the " Yvein legend" after" Hartmann von der Aue", founded in a former cellar. Here we finished our city tour and the more comfortable part started.

Therefore Andrea invited us to a cup of coffee and some cakes opposite her "Fair Trade- shop", Gillersgasse. Thank you, Andrea!!!

In the end she gave us the possibility to have a view into her shop and the "Zinnfiguren Museum". In addition she showed some of us her own small house at the Kirchhof, too. What a surprise to see, how to live in such a small house.

Congratulatons to all of you keeping on reading this text!!!

Wish you somne happy summer days, don't forget speaking practise!

See you in September.

Yours Rita

Hello together,

here is the report of our last lesson. First Thomas held a conversation with us. He wanted to know, how we spent our last two weeks. Especially Jörg gave us an interesting insight into his job and his trip to Cannes / France, where a new sculpture of his company was auctioned.

But also Andrea and Friede spoke about their experiences.For example: " Medivial moonshine market" in Schmalkalden, the school system in Germany and how to have a visit from children and grandchildren.
Time went by so quickly and we had a break.

Then we started to work with our textbook, page 103: " Friday the 13th".
We listened to the story, read it in different parts and at last we had to translate it.

But no, it wasn't enough, not at all.
Our teacher asked each of us for vocabulary, too.
Then we compared our homework page 12, No. 2 and page 13 No. 6.
We finished our lesson with a task by Speaking practise.

Here are the dates for the next lessons until the summer break:

- June 22nd
- June 24th
- June 29th( last time

Oh what a pity!!
There is no homework for the next lesson.

But attention, may be that Thomas is going to post us something by e-mail!?

Next week Udo, Sigrid; Sybille and I will be on holiday.
Seems as if it will be a private lesson for the others.

See you the week after next.
Have a good time!

Then we checked the homework to the relative clauses which Thomas had sent per email. We read the rules and compared the exercises. It was not so difficult. A short vocabulary test followed.
After that we worked with the textbook on page 11, nr. 3a, 3b and 4. Then we made a play: first Thomas and afterwards each of us described an object or a person and the others had to advise what he means. It was very funny!
The homework: Textbook on page 11, nr. 4a and page 13, nr. 6.
And…this gives pleasure: Think up yourself a thing which we should guess and describe it!
I’m very curious to see whether we can guess everything!

Dear colleagues,

what happened the last class hour?
We have finished our course network2. and have started the new one.
So we worked in the meantime with a text of the brochure "break network 2".
Comparing the solutions, reading and speaking needed lots of time.
Quickly time was past.
Next time we need to use our new new textbook.(network 3)
In preparation we should read the text "arrivals" on page 10.
It can't hurt to take a look at page 108 or 120.
There are some interesting information for example grammar check or Word skills.
Our next meeting is on the 20th of April.

Have a nice Xmas (Easter)😋⛄️☔️

At first Thomas asked all of us about our enterprises during this time. Then we compared our homework "before you go on". We heard the song from Doris Day "Que sera, sera", translated it and spoke about the ideas behind these lines. It was very interesting to hear from everybody if it might be possible to influence our future.
After our talk we worked with our neighbour on page 96 exercise 2a. We also heard a conversation between Tanja and her parents and Tanja and Sean on the ferry. Antje told us why Tanja chanched her mind about Dublin.
Last of all we discovered Ireland, not really-only in the book. We read and translated the texts about the coastline, the music, the writers, the whiskey and the rural live of Ireland.
