German Meine Familie Essay Help

 

Oddly enough, the more words you learn, the easier it becomes to remember them. Your long-term memory works like an infinitely elastic network; everything you learn is classified according to meaning. As far as your long-term memory is concerned, the more related meanings you give it, the better.

This doesn’t mean that you should learn hundreds of words all at once, but you will find it helpful to learn words in connected and usable parcels.

That’s why in your text and on this page you will be learning the words for family membersalong with a number of adjectives you might use to describe them. Learning an adjective with some appropriate nouns helps you to remember both. Each kind of word acts as a memory hook for the other.

Using adjectives to describe people requires you to use a noun or pronoun, the verb „to be“ (sein) and an adjective. With these three components you can create a very simple kind of sentence, as shown in the table below. Once you know these three components, you’ll be able to generate hundreds of sentences of your own. Here’s an example, using a friendly father figure.

 

Noun or PronounThe Verb „to be“ – seinAdjective

Mein Vater

(noun)

Er

(he – pronoun)

ist (third person singular)groß(tall)
geduldig(patient)
intelligent
sportlich(athletic)
witzig(witty)
musikalisch(musical, musically talented)
nett(nice)

If only all fathers were like that!

Have you ever been on a rather adventurous trip, like a safari in Africa or a trip through India? Then tell your story about this outstanding experience similar to my example below:

In den Sommerferien habe ich eine Whale-Watching-Tour in Kanada gemacht. Dabei war ich mit 8 weiteren Teilnehmern und 2 Gruppenleitern für fünf Tage mit Kajaks auf dem Meer zwischen Vancouver Island und dem Festland unterwegs. Am Abend bevor die Tour startete traf sich die Gruppe in einem Restaurant auf Quadra Island zur Vorbesprechung der Tour. Dies war eine gute Gelegenheit, die anderen Teilnehmer schon ein bisschen kennen zu lernen. Die Gruppenleiter zeigten uns außerdem schon mal den Verlauf der Tour auf der Landkarte. Nach einer Übernachtung in einem tollen Ferienhaus auf Quadra Island, welches eine kleine vorgelagerte Insel vor Vancouver Island ist und welche nur per Fähre erreichbar ist, wurden wir am nächsten Morgen abgeholt und sind ein paar Stunden in den Norden von Vancouver Island bis nach Telegraph Cove gefahren. Dort haben wir die Kajaks und alles was wir brauchten auf ein Motorboot geladen und sind damit zu einer kleinen, unbewohnten Insel in der Nähe gefahren. Dort haben wir unsere erste Nacht ohne Strom, fließendes Wasser und Handyempfang verbracht. Wir schliefen in Zelten, und das Plumpsklo war tief im dunklen Wald verborgen. Einige Mädchen wollten nicht allein dorthin gehen, aus Angst, von wilden Tieren gebissen zu werden. Alle Tiere, die ich dort gesehen habe, waren auf dem Wasser. Es gab Buckelwale, Orcas, Seehunde, lila Seesterne und viele verschiedene Vögel zu sehen. Wir haben vom Kajak aus viele Fotos geschossen. Jeden Tag sind wir woanders hingepaddelt und haben uns einen neuen Schlafplatz gesucht. Deshalb mussten wir immer all unsere Sachen im Kajak verstauen. Das war zuerst recht kompliziert und hat lange gedauert. So eine Reise hatte ich vorher noch nie gemacht und alles war sehr aufregend. Eine Reise, die man nicht vergisst.

And here is my English version:

I went on a whale watching trip to Canada during summer vacation. Eight other participants and two group leaders took part, and the trip took place on the sea between Vancouver Island and the continent. The night before the tour started, the group met in a restaurant on Quadra Island to talk about the structure of the tour. It was also a great opportunity to get to know the other participants a bit, and the group leaders showed us the route on a map. After staying overnight in a lovely holiday house on Quadra Island, which can only be reached by ferry and is situated off the shores of Vancouver Island, we were picked up in the morning and had to drive for some hours to the north of Vancouver Island to a little port called Telegraph Cove. There we put the kayaks and all the stuff we needed onto a motorboat and drove to an unpopulated little island nearby. There we spent our first night without electricity, running water, or cell phone reception. We slept in tents, and the pit latrine was hidden in the dark forest. Some girls didn't dare to go there on their own because they were afraid that they could have been bitten by wild animals. The animals that I saw were all on the water. You could see humpback whales, orcas, seals, purple starfish, and lots of different birds. We took many photos from our kayaks. Everyday, we paddled somewhere else and looked for another place to sleep. Therefore, we always had to take all our stuff with us in the kayaks. That was quite complicated first and took a long time. I had never been on a journey like that before, and everything was exciting to me. A journey you will never forget.
