I've returned to my German lessons on Rosetta Stone and I'm feeling very good after tonight's lesson. All along I've been picking up words and putting together short sentences, but tonight I learned more words that are actually found in my house/yard so I can roam around speaking German and pointing at things to help with remembering.
Note, I don't have the German characters in the sentences.
In our front yard: Ich habe ein klein Baum.
I have a small tree.
In our back yard: Ich habe ein gros Baum.
I have a large tree.
Gimli ist eine rot und weis Hund.
Gimli is a red and white dog.
Gimli night trage schuhe.
Gimli is not wearing shoes.
Candy trage blau Hose und blau Hemd.
Candy is wearing blue pants and a blue shirt. (I'm wearing pajamas but I haven't learned that word yet.)
Ich habe nicht Blumen.
I have no flowers.
Ich habe ein schwarz Mantel.
I have a black coat.
Ich habe sechs Eien.
I have 6 eggs.
Mike habe funf Teller. (I cannot remember the plural of plates).
Mike has 5 plates.
Die Frau trage eine gelb Rock.
The woman wears a skirt. Where Rock = skirt came from is beyond me!
Mike habe vier Schlussel. (I think I spelled this incorrectly).
Mike has 4 keys.
That's it for now, but I'm excited to get back to it tomorrow! I might start talking to Gimli in German, we'll see.
