Ein kurzes Video auf Deutsch / A short video in German
Here's a video I made today where I speak entirely in German without using a script. Thanks in part to my training here on DuoLingo.
All my previous videos were much more prepared, but I wanted to try one that was completely spontaneous. I was super nervous (you can see the camera shaking, but maybe that was just the result of too much coffee this morning), but overall I think I got through it ok.
I hope someone out there finds this video helpful or at least a little enjoyable.
Have fun learning languages everyone!
heute habe ich ein Video gedreht, in dem ich die ganze Zeit nur auf Deutsch spreche.
Falls du Lust hast, es zu gucken, dann ist hier der Link:
Viel Spaß beim Sprachenlernen!
Sehr schoen. Your accent, i.e. your German accent, is very good; in fact, so good that I almost thought you were native German-speaker, Congratulation. P.s. I love the poster , the photography, of the Berliner photographer you mentioned in the video; I think, it's genial!
I can second that! Your speaking is absolutely great. If I were to give you critical feedback at all, I would say, very rarely you use "als" where "dass" would be correct. I noticed it at 0:55, where you say "Es ist das erste Mal, ALS ich ein ganz spontanES Video gedreht habe."
Keep up the good work!
Nordlichter = Northern Germans :-)
Deine Gemälden und deine Sprachkenntnisse sind ebenso beeindruckend. Insbesondere sehen die Gemälden sehr tief und gefühlvoll aus. Selbst habe ich keine Fähigkeit für Kunst oder Sprachen aber hoffentlich werde ich mich, durch Übung, meine Deutschkentnisse verbessern. Bisher freue ich mich dich einfach verstehen zu können. Vielen Dank fürs Video.
Good one. Still some accent to get rid of, but grammatical mistakes were really few in number (I stopped counting when running out of fingers, reckoning it not worth counting at such a low frequency). Plus: I knew that skyline immediately (Collini-Center, Neckarpromenade). But what happened to the window across the street?
Thanks so much! I live in Germany and have a German partner, so I suppose that is largely the reason why my accent has improved. The Germans are not shy when it comes to constantly pointing out my little mistakes. Just through DuoLingo alone I think it would be more challenging to improve my accent. One of the things that helped me the most was creating my own YouTube channel and hearing my voice played back when speaking German. It helps me notice a lot of little mistakes I can't hear "inside my head". If that makes sense :-)
