  • background information for shopping in Germany
  • vocabulary for different types of food

Grammatically, this chapter concentrates on the use of adjectives when they follow a number or a quantity. We will also examine verbs which take the dative case and learn the declination of some more irregular verbs. The declension of personal pronouns will be examined, as will the formation of the imperative in German.
