Nearly every building in Vienna is beautiful in its own right, but one façade stands out: the Engel-Apotheke on Bognergasse. I walk by this beautiful façade on my way to German class every day. Vienna has been getting colder and colder, so I wanted to pick up some vitamin C to stay healthy on my way home. I entered the beautiful shop and was greeted by a kind woman in German. In my German course, we recently learned how to ask questions. The verb moves to the first position in the sentence, the subject to the second position, and the direct object to the third position. Knowing this, I was able to ask the woman “Hast du Vitamin C?” It felt really good being able to communicate and successfully purchase something on my own, even if it was just a simple question!
