1. Seasonal words: Hello. Do you know the German? Also? Bitch, Have you been practicing it? Do you know how to spell your name in German or your email address or the town you live in ? Would you like to practice a bit more? But I've run out of ideas. Then I've got the right class for you. It's very seasonal. So you may only want to do it now. Really? In December, just before Christmas. Because all the German words you will hear possibly even learn. Ah, December or Christmassy Words. So enjoy a little bit off. December Christmas fund practice some German spelling. And if you ever come across this video in June, July, August or whatever well, you can still enrol. You can still practice it. But you may just want to wait until December again. But if you want to have a go police in role and have a go 2. Extra listening activity seasonal words: welcome to an extra session. Uh, I thought I'll give you an extra practice. Listen, Onda, um assess December the's are going to be seasonal words.

If you come to this lecture in July, you may want to then delete it or avoided. Really? But at the moment, it's very topical in the first word I'm going to spell to you is only three letters, and it starts with, I think, back in the alphabet, B C D in S G etcetera. So the first letter, um, on the 2nd 1 is Oh, so the 1st 1 was e. The 2nd 1 is the on the last one s and I repeat them again. And yes, second word starts with Yes, just nice and easy, IHS. See, um um on the tricky letter again. Mm. And another one? Um, yes. See, uh, and, um um next word is quite a long one, and it starts with Ah. Now, remember, quite often people get the A in the all mixed up, but a is And, uh, the next letter D e again, Watch out e and to Yes, And be careful with this one. I'll say it again.

And, yes, noise work and Mm, No. Mm. This noise Lord, you don't uh, uh, yeah, as I said is beginning off the lecture. These are very seasonal words and phrases you would hear lots of times in Germany during December, which is two months. I'm just making this video. It may sound very strange to listen to this and March, July, October. If you're watching the videos, then ignore them. Issue like, come back to it next Christmas. I hope you enjoy this while you listen to it in December
