7 Wer ist das?/ Who is that?

Now work your way through Activity 7, which gives you a chance to practise your German pronunciation.

Activity 7

Wer ist das?/ Who is that? Play Audio 5 and listen carefully to the pronunciation of the names. They are the same as those in Activity 4. Say out loud what you hear and include the number of the picture. You will hear the information of the first four pictures only. Can you continue? Who else was there? Go back to Activity 4 to remind yourself and then say it out loud. Don’t forget to say the number of the pictures as well. If you wish, you can also record yourself to help you practise and improve.

Don’t worry if you are unsure about the pronunciation of some of the words and sounds in German. You will have plenty of opportunities to practise your pronunciation as the course goes on.


You hear: Nummer eins.

You say: Das ist Sigmund Freud. (Because picture no. 1 shows Sigmund Freud)

You hear: Das ist Sigmund Freud.
