Dear German Talkers,
I hope you are all well and that you will have the chance to catch up with your friends and families during the festive season – despite Corona.
I spontaneously decided to create another digital German Talk, because I realised that I published the last one quite some time ago. So I entered all sorts of ‘Christmassy’ keywords into our collection’s database to see what images would pop up. Given that I always have to respect copyrights, Victorian illustrations were the safest option. According to what the database had to offer me, I wrote the following little Christmas story. It is an old-fashioned, cosy tale from times gone by, which will hopefully distract you for a short while from the worries of the real world.
The PDF includes the verbatim script and a list of vocabulary as it appears in the text. Just click on the link to open the presentation. I’m still not perfectly happy with the sound, but hope you will have no problems understanding everything.
Have a lovely Christmas and a great start into 2022!
All the best wishes,
