DeutschAkademie’s E-Book Shop ist wieder online!!!

Nach einem kleinen Update ist unser Onlineshop mit E-Book zum Deutsch lernen wieder online! Wir haben jetzt den Shop in unseren beliebten Gratis Online-Deutschkurs integriert, damit der Zugang einfacher ist.

unser E-Book “Deutsch ganz leicht” (für 9,99€) ist nach wie vor der Bestseller in unserem Online Shop, dicht gefolgt vom “Basic Vocabulary Builder GERMAN” (9,99€).

Übrigens, wir arbeiten gerade an einem neuen Deutschtrainer der noch viel Umfangreicher wird, als alles bisherige in unserem Shop! Also bis bald!

 

DER / DIE / DAS / SOMN USOR!

Saptamana trecuta, in cadrul incununarii sfarsitului de curs A 2.1 am fost in vizita la Hanife, colega noastra din Cipru (Nord).

Ne-am infruptat din bunatatile traditionale si apoi am stat de vorba, am socializat, ne-am distrat. In final, un lucru ne-a atras atentia: Hanife avea lipite pe perete o gramada de teorii, reguli si exceptii de la regula,… Toate de la cursul nostru. DER / DIE / DAS + ZU / ZUM / BEI /….. Am ramas masca!.. Asa ceva n-am mai vazut!…  Incredibil!  Hanife zice ca e greu sa fii student! J Trebuie sa retii atatea si sa intelegi multe. J

Ne-a placut ideea oricum. Hanife este o studenta eminenta si ne puteam astepta la asa ceva din partea ei.  Se dedica si ii si place ce studiaza la Universtität Wien.

Mi s-a parut impresionant cum fiecare percepe teoria si cum o aprofundeaza. Fie ca invata logic, fie ca citeste in fiecare seara inainte sa adoarma, e modul de manifestare al fiecaruia dintre noi.

La si 55!

Momentan locuiesc in Laxenburg, nu chiar IN Viena. Asta inseamna ca de fiecare data cand vreau sa vin in oras trebuie fie sa platesc 1,8 EUR / calatorie, fie sa am abonament (asta-i alta poveste!).

Este destul de simplu  sa ajung in Viena:  iau autobuzul din Laxenburg si ma lasa direct la Südtiroler Platz. De acolo e in functie de locul in care vreau sa ajung.

E o corvoada sa iei mereu autobuzul? Sa stai dupa orarul lui? Sa te enervezi cand e trafic sau daca nu merge aerul conditionat? Nu e mare lucru! 😉 Trebuie doar sa ai rabdare, sa fii independent de masina personala a cuiva si sa realizezi ca asa te poti deplasa catre si dinspre oras. Un alt avantaj e faptul ca, pe drum inapoi, te detasezi de oras, de  traficul lui, de problemele lui si de inghesuiala de acolo.

Oraselul in care locuiesc eu gazduieste si un parc. Plus de asta are si un castel ce apartinea de Schönbrunn. Despre Laxenburg, intr-un alt articol.

In concluzie, ma consider norocoasa sa fac naveta.

Eleganta celor 4 *

Vizitam Viena. Eram pe ring si am zis sa deviem putin.

Am ajuns din greseala la Palais Coburg Hotel Residenz. Am zis sa intram. Credeam ca e muzeu. J Nu, nu era muzeu! Este un super hotel!

De ce zic asta? In primul rand, avea gladiole la receptie. Ciudat de frumos, nu?  J Aratau asa de bine! Asa de curat si ingrijit. In alt doilea rand, era maaaaaaare. Aveai loc sa intri cu bagajele, sa stai la coada, sa intrebi… Aveai loc sa te si impiedici, daca trebuie. In al treilea rand, culorile se impleteau foarte bine.  Erau armonioase si calde. Nu vedeai nici un detaliu tipator, care sa-ti atraga privirea, nu te speria nimic, nu cadea nimic pe tine din impletituri pe acolo. Era exceptional!

Daca as fi turist in Viena si as avea bani multi, direct acolo m-as caza.  Fara nici o obiectie si fara sa stau pe ganduri! M-as gandi putin si la Hilton, dar nu cred ca ar intrece Palais Coburg Hotel Residenz.

Recomand tuturor acest hotel. Atunci cand o sa am un job, ma gandesc sa-mi iau o noapte, doar sa vad cum e.  Sunt foarte curioasa, stiu! J

The red one, please!

After all the grammar, all the exercises, homework, presentations, little games and tests, we reached the end of the course. Everything was celebrated at Hanife’s with some traditional Turkish food.

We have all gathered there: all the continents, the entire globe: Cyprus, Turkey, Canada, Poland, Macedonia, Romania, South Africa and Puerto Rico. Ask us something from Geography and we’ll know it for sure.  J

At Hanife’s we had the pleasure to taste Kisir, Manti,  Molehiya, Humus and Grilled Hellim.  All veeeeeeeeeeeery tasty!! When she invited us, she said: „It will be just a little… Just to taste each and check the flavour. ” What do you expect?  A slice of lemmon, a boiled potatoe and some sault, right? Well, look at that!! So much food!! We all have eaten properly and there was still food left.  We finished with Turkish coffee and tea.  Everything was delicious!

While enjoying the food there, I realised the cultural difference that appeared. „Just a little food” in Cyprus and Turkey means so much for other cultures.  A welcomed difference, I’d say!

Mahlzeit!  🙂

The cherry from the top of ym German course!

Job in Viena

Acum 2-3 saptamani am fost la un targ de joburi aici in Viena. Nu stiam la ce sa ma astept. Lume multa? Inghesuiala? Firme putine? Doar ingineri?

Am ajuns acolo printre primii. Din greseala, evident! 🙂 Am cercetat terenul.  Patru etaje numai cu firme.  Toti relaxati pe acolo,  nici o problema.  Reprezentantii firmelor erau asa prietenosi si sociabili cu toti. Pe langa asta, erau si diplomati si foarte sinceri. Incredibil de sinceri.  Iti ziceau in fata ce si cum. Iti adresau intrebarile necesare si iti prezentau concluzia lor.

Am gasit 2-3 lucruri interesante pentru mine. Era un targ de locuri de munca pentru ingineri asa ca nu ma asteptam sa gasesc mare lucru. Dar.. decat deloc!.. 🙂

M-a bucurat atitudinea relaxata si onesta a oamenilor de aici, a angajatorilor in special.

Toate felicitarile mele catre organizatori! Foarte frumos aranjat totul si multa creativitate. Un bufet mobil sa nu moara de foame, ceai, cafea, lapte,… De toate! Cel mai mult mi-a placut ca nu  erau inghesuite standurile, ci asa aerisite. Puteai sa treci printre ele pe acolo, puteai sa stai si la coada. Super!

Eu in continuare imi caut de lucru. Aplic mereu si, intr-un final, nu stii de unde sare iepurele, nu?

Madame Tussauds in Vienna!

Finally Madame Tussaud has „bought” a house in Vienna. The people of Vienna, its tourists, the Austrians, the neighbours of the country and the entire Central-Eastern Europe are happy to have the stars closer to them.

Ever since I was a little girl and studied about the British culture and civilisation, I dreamed about visiting this incredible museum.

It is in Vienna now! It came to meet me and all the other far away fans just like me.  I came from Romania; I moved from Romania here in Vienna. Is it a coincidence? Is it a dream come true? I don’t know exactly. What is for sure is that we are both here: the museum and me!

I plan to visit it soon. Will it want to receive me? It is such a special moment for me that I don’t even know if I dare to step there yet. What to wear? Who to photograph first? Should I smile?…

Anyway, according to the Romanian saying: „Daca nu vine Mohamed la munte, vine muntele la Mohamed.” (= If Mohamed doesn’t go to the mountain, then the mountain comes to Mohamed.), I think that this museum came here in Vienna for all the people that wanted to visit London, but didn’t get the chance from this or that reason. So, let’s enjoy Madame Tussaud here in the heart of Europe!
