Week 2: Ich esse gern…


Last week introduced some vocabulary you need when talking about breakfast. This week you will build on that and say what food and drink you actually like and what you are not so keen on.

To express likes and dislikes, the adverb gern or gerne (both versions are used by native speakers and there is absolutely no difference between them) is extremely useful. To use the adverb in a sentence, you’ll need to look at word order and practise constructing your own sentences. In addition, this week you will have an opportunity to work on your speaking skills and pronunciation.

First, you will revise some vocabulary to get you talking.

Guten Appetit! Enjoy your meal!
