The project text consists of two parts: The decoding (a word by word translation) and the parallel text (a regular English translation next to the German original). Today you're going to do the following 3 activities:
  • Basic understanding: Scroll down to the parallel text (or click ↓ Translation in the side bar), click on the first word of the English text to start the audio and read the English translation while the German text is playing. Repeat.
    2 minutes
  • Cracking the code: Now work with the decoding. Set the audio to SLOW, start the player, and read the English word by word translation while the German audio is playing. Reading this translation gives you an idea how German sentence structure works and shows you exactly what every single word means. Repeat once. Set the player to fast and repeat again.
    4 minutes
  • Active speaking: Set the audio to SLOW and start to speak in chorus with the native speaker! Don't worry about making mistakes. Focus on single sentences, repeat them often and try to get closer and closer to the native pronunciation.
    6 minutes

Did you know? The side bar allows you to scroll dynamically from the decoding to the translation. The buttons will automatically take you to the current point in the corresponding text.
Today's activities:

  • Exploring the code: Start the slow audio recording and read the English word by word translation. Repeat sentences that seem difficult in their structure. If the meaning of the decoding isn't entirely clear, go to the regular translation and check what it means exactly. Repeat. Repeat with the fast recording.
    5 minutes
  • Active speaking: Work with the decoding again. Set the audio to SLOW and start to speak in chorus with the native speaker! Repeat every sentence twice (click on them two repeat). Now choose three two five sentences and practice speaking them with the fast audio recording. Repeat every one of them at least four times.
