A postcard from Hamburg

CIMG4097Here is a short postcard describing my time here in Hamburg. Using the German that I have learnt in a week and a half I think I have got a typical day for me covered nicely ­čÖé I would also like to apologise for those reading this with an advanced level of German but hopefully you are still a little impressed!

Liebe Alle,

die Ziet hier in Hamburg ist fantastisch! Ich stehe um halb acht auf und fr├╝hst├╝cke um acht Uhhr. Ich bin in der Schule von acht Uhr f├╝nfzig bis eins. Dann gehe ich spazieren und ich esse mit meiner Freundin zu Mittag. Es gibt viele sch├Âne Restaurants in Hamburg!

Nachmittags gehe ich enikaufen und manchmal treffe ich meine nuen Freunde. Ich fahre mit dem zug nach hause und oft schlafe ich! Meine Freundin arbeitet bis halb sieben und Abends wir machen viele Veranstaltungen! Ich verlasse am Samstag, von dem ich sehr ungl├╝cklich bin.

Herzliche Gr├╝sse

Dien Peter

and the translation… remember it┬┤s not the brilliant content but the fact I can write it all in German already!

Dear all,

My time here in Hamburg is fantastic! I get up at 7:30 and eat breakfast at 8. I am in the school from 8:50 to 13:00. Then I go for a wander (around Hamburg town centre) and eat lunch with my friend. There are many nice restaurants in Hamburg!

In the afternoon I go shopping and sometimes meet with my new friends. I take the train home and often sleep (also in the afternoon). My girlfriend finishes work at 6:30 and in the evening we like to do lots of different things! Unfortunately I am leaving on Saturday.

Best regards

From Peter

Wow! you are now saying. What a beautiful story. Okay, so I admit it┬┤s not the most exciting postcard ever but I hope you have a better indication of what can be achieved in less than two weeks. So what are you waiting for? Come and learn German in Hamburg or check out all the other locations on offer!

    Hi Peter
    Your German is pretty good! After one week and a half already! Imagine how good it will be after attending further courses. Keep practising!
