Essen!!

My favourite topic…food! I was so happy we finally got into the food part of our Deutsch Kursbuch. It’s so much fun and easier to remember because I can relate to it a lot.

We went through the class to talk about what we have for Frühstück (breakfast) and also what our favourite foods are and of course all in German. When it was my turn I had no favourite because I can’t pick.

This Friday is a public holiday but we have a class to make up for next Thursday’s class so we are all going to a café to practice ordering food and drinks in German… it’s going to be a great lesson!

Week 3 update

Happy 10th blog post! Thanks for the people who are reading my blog posts, I hope they are interesting enough for you.

Today was the start to a new week and Deutsch class and it was very good once again. I really enjoy learning in a classroom full of people. We began learning ‘Was magst du?‘ and understanding the differences from Nie all the way through to oft. And of course all the in-betweens like manchmal.

Today wasn’t a great day for me as knee pain was frustrating so I went to the doctor again. The day felt so long and unsettling going from one doctor to the other. I will be getting and MRI scan this week.

Something that made me smile was when I was walking home after Deutsch class I looked up at the Opera house and realised there was no more construction work on it! (Only for now of course.) But I was so excited because I hadn’t seen the opera like this yet and it made me so happy. This is when I realised you should be grateful for all the small things in life.

Herbst! Otoño!

Como quisiera poder empezar a escribir en aleman y comunicar mis ideas en este idioma tan.complejo y bonito que he aprendido a querer.

No es facil venir de un pais que vive de una.unica estacion, pero creo que cada etapa del.año me ha traido cositas diferentes.

Sinceramente mis mas grandes expectativas estaban sobre el,otoño…nadie me lo dice nadie me m cuenta.pero el sentimientos sobre el cambio de colores, la melancolia y el.romanticismo me generaban gran ilusion.

Era muy triste.pensar que tsl vez.me iba y no lo veria.pero ahora que por fin pude apreciarlo siento.un regocijo de entender que no importa el.frio, finalmente la vida es un constante cambio, todo fliye todo pasa y todo deja huellas a su paso que somos nosotros los que finalmente elegimos.

Que pasa ahora, adios a las ensaladas, adios a la comida de verano. Bienveido a las.sopas (que bien fmaosas si son aca) a seguir.con.la.tradicion del.cafe.caliente del chocolate…adios a los helados pero bienvenido al calor del.hogar y a lo mas bonito que puede aparecer…LA NAVIDAD

 

Time of season change

It’s becoming to get cold here in Vienna and I’m definitely not a fan. Had some nice sunny weather when I first arrived but I left from an Australian winter and now so quickly I’m back to a European winter. Today I definitely over dressed, looks like I’m in the snowy alps in minus 5 degrees.

Today we learnt about the time. At first it’s hard to get used to but now I’m definitely getting the hang of it. I don’t understand why in Austria if it’s 5:15 they say Viertel 6. They are saying it’s 6:15 when really it’s 5:15. I find that very strange.

 

Ballet life

As a dancer, there are many responsibilities for self care. To keep your body healthy, fit and strong. From last week I began to have knee pain which started to improve until today where my knee suddenly collapsed and clicked out again. This can get so frustrating as I cannot hardly walk today and all I want is to better and be able to join my dance classes again. But with these things comes patience.

While I can’t move I can continue to learn these new Grammatik rules, Nominativ und Akkusativ. We just began this topic and it is very confusing as there is no such thing in English.

Immer Denken…

Que es el dia sin su antonimo la noche? que seria de la vida si no le temieramos a la muerte? Nunca se han preguntado que cada accion que hacemos es la respuesta del miedo al antonimo? Es curioso, como eso suena pero es real.

Caminando por las calles de Vienna me ocurre algo nuy especial y es eso, el espacio y el tiempo para reflexionar.sobre tantas cosas de las que nunca habia reflexionado. Es algo bonito pero complejo.

Es curioso como la arquitectura de estos espacios de diseño no solo para el dia sino para iluminar la noche, para maravillar para combinar a la luna y jugar con ese romabnticismo que convierte a un espacio en.un viaje diferente.

Estatuas, monumentos y caminos jugabdo el papel armonioso de la union para crear magia, para geberar espectativa y emocion…y finalmente para dejar fluir la poesia!

 

SINGULAR UND PLURAL

This is where is starts to get a little confusing…

My brain is very slow to comprehend new rules in Grammar (as I have realised) and so understanding that each word has a different ending in its case of being ‘plural’ and also a new article gets put on at the start, tells me I need to do some practice. Even after practicing for 2 minutes with the class it started to become easier.  Such as der Ball (singular) turns to die Bälle. But each word falls into its own category. For example, foreign words or words that end in A E I O U, that need to be changed to plural gets a ‘s’ on the end eg. Das Foto – die Fotos, das Taxi — die Taxis.

Last night we were given a little bit of homework on colours. I quite enjoyed it actually.

Die Wiener Kultur! La cultura de Viena!

Es un tema que ya he hablado en muchas ocasiones, ya que es sobre todo aquello que representa y caracteriza a Viena dentro de su dia a dia. Vieba ademas de la historia tiene espacios modernos. Viena es la ciudad de la cultura, del.cine, del arte y del entretenimiento.

Alguna vez han caminado por el Prater y se han sentido emocionados caminando por sus caminos y sus espacios llenos de musica y color y no se han sentido como niños otra vez? porque yo si. Y tengo que confesar que hasta me he montado en las atracciones y he reido, gritado, llorado y hasta asustado.

Sin importar la edad, el espacio es tan familiar que uno olvida la edad, las preocupaciones y el que diran.

Para aquellos que no se sienten asi, siempre es bueno recorrer cerca al Rathaus. No solo por su inmensa arquitectura y por lo hermosa que se ve de noche esta intalacion. Es porque en ella siempre hay tantos eventos.cono usted se pueda.imaginar y para cada edad y para cada gusto. He añorado el circo y he sentido el festival de cine, sin importar que ka comida a su alrededor es deliciosisimaa

Estas sin mis ventajas de no sentirme tan turista ahora, el.tiempo que me.queda aca espara caminar, para perderme para jugar para tocar cada lugar que no otro ha podido y por eso amo la ciudad, pir los espacios que se abren a cada poblacion diferente.

 

Nicht oder Kein?

Today we began learning putting in words with the correct matching word.

Such as:

Kein Buch

Keine Kette

And more and more…

This is where is becomes very confusing for me as each word uses a different word with a different ending. Eg. Kein/Keine, ein/eine. The best way to get this rule in our brains is to just practice it in our everyday lives. We also began learning names of common furniture and objects. I have lots of revision to do now!

 

Meine DeutschAkademie. Mi acadrmia de aleman.

Bueno amigos. He hablado nuchas cpsas de Austria, de su gente pero creo que me esta faltando lo que me motivo a estar con ustedes. El aleman.

Que pasa con el el y que pasa con la academia en la que me encuentro. La academia, la conoci por una compañera de mi mama y aunque no tenia referencia alguna de otra academia sigo reafirmando mi idea de que es la mejor desicion que he tomado. o

Se preguntaran que hace tan especial a esta academia, pues personalmente  y que tal vez exagero cuando que ha sido de las mejores experiencias de mi vida, pero la verdad es que esta academia fue la que me abrio las puertas a conocer y abrirme a un mundo que aun no conocia.

quedara.mas adelante nuchos mas blogs para.contarles mis torturas con el aleman…pero por ahora mi mensaje es.mostrarles el espacio donde he conocido gente increible que no solo es Austriaca, sino que viene de todo el mundo

Wilkommen zu 21. Century!!!!

Melbourne city compared to Vienna City

Now I have been living in Vienna for a bit over a month. I’m loving it a lot and surprisingly last year the winner of worlds most liveable city was Melbourne, and this year it was Vienna! So I’m very lucky to have been able to live in both.

I love the Melbourne’s vibe and atmosphere but Melbourne could learn a lot from Vienna. I am very impressed with Vienna’s public transport system. Always on time and on schedule. Melbourne is not so good with the public transport. I guess something I miss a lot about Melbourne is I was only 10 minutes away from the beach. In Vienna of course there are no oceans surrounding it but nothing can beat the Donau River!

Also, Australia is a much younger country than Austria and what I love about Vienna is that they have a wonderful rich History.
