Auf Geht’s | Unit 10 Grammar Homework 1 Auf geht’s Unit 10: Unterhaltung 10.1.A Chapter Overview of Grammar In this chapter we focus on the basics of entertainment in Germany. In the world of grammar, we’re going to fine tune our German by perfecting the art of building long sentences. The nuts and bolts we’ll require to achieve this goal include: How to use subordinating conjunctions (“ob,” “dass,” “wenn” and “weil”) in a sentence; How to express opinions using the verbs “denken”, “glauben” and “finden”; How to use relative pronouns and relative clauses in the nominative and accusative; How to make suggestions and give commands using both the “lass uns” construction and the “wir”-imperative; and How do use demonstrative pronouns.

Auf Geht’s | Unit 10 Grammar Homework 2 10.1.A.2 There’s a lot of uninformed gossip about German throughout North America. Besides a lot of stupid claims that it is a hard language (try learning Chinese!), one of the most rampant rumors is that German is backwards (not true!) because it places the verb at the end of every sentence. What you’re about to learn is going to put silly these rumors to rest! Let’s go over a few facts first: Fact No. 1: Germans love building super long sentences. Fact No. 2: Lots of Germans make long sentences using conjunctions. Fact No. 3: There are two kind of conjunctions: coordinating and subordinating conjunctions. Fact No. 4: Only subordinating conjunctions require that we do put the verb at the end of the subordinating clause. Okay, let’s back up and fill in three gaps.
