ABC Challenge finals: judge now! A yearnin’ to learn German with Angelika…

Do you love the German language and wish you could speak it perfectly?

Do you yearn to go and bargain for sumptuous goodies in those to-die-for German Christmas markets but not know how to say more that “ya,” “bitte,” and “danke?”

It’s judging time for this amazing ABC Challenge that grew from a small acorn (well, blog post actually) into a superb contest of exquisite blog posts, all in 26 sentences each starting with the next letter of the alphabet. We’re posting them all here again – several per day as there are a good few – so you can view them and see what you think.

Taylor Lavati will be the final judge (it was her concept in the first place) but we need your input in the comments to share your views on how each post appeals to you. So please comment away below…

And now, in the meantime (drum roll) …

Angelika Davey of Angelika’s German Tuition and Translation

Angelika teaches German.

But why should I learn German?

Can I not just use google translate?

Don’t you want to export to Germany?

Export yes, learn German no!

For what it’s worth, most Germans speak English.

Good, then I don’t need to learn.

Hang on, how about some courtesy?

I am always polite!!!

Jolly good, then you know how to address your new clients with the right phrases!

Knowledge is king – even I know that!

Let’s go through some of those phrases; you want to make sure you say them right.

Maybe I do need a bit of help – don’t want to make mistakes.

Not sure if I DO know how to say all these new words.

Of course, Angelika will help you!

Perhaps you’d like to join me and we learn together?

Quickly, before you change your mind!

Ring her now and book a lesson!

Sure, where is her number?

Translations are on offer, too!

Understanding your clients is important!

Very good, dear, let’s get all this sorted properly.

When shall we start?”

Xylophones will sell so well once we can speak some German and have our website translated into German!

Yes, I’m so glad we have taken the plunge to do it properly!

Zealously they booked some lessons, got some paperwork translated and started selling their xylophones successfully in Germany!!!
