The most important vocabulary for A1-German

Congratulations for embarking on your German adventure! During your A1-Level you’ll build the foundation for navigating basic situations with confidence. Let’s explore the key vocabulary topics that will get you speaking German in no time.

Greetings and Making Friends:

Your journey begins with a friendly “Hallo” (Hello) or a more formal “Guten Tag” (Good day). When parting ways, a cheerful “Auf Wiedersehen” (Goodbye) is always appreciated. Now, to introduce yourself, simply say “Ich bin” (I am) followed by your name. Meeting someone new? Ask “Wie heißen Sie?” (What is your name?) A friendly “Wie geht es Ihnen?” (How are you?) shows you care.

Sharing Who You Are:

Whether filling out a form or making conversation, knowing how to share personal information is essential. Learn “Name” (Name), “Alter” (Age), “Nationalität” (Nationality), and “Beruf” (Profession). Family is important too, so memorize “Vater” (Father), “Mutter” (Mother), “Bruder” (Brother), and “Schwester” (Sister).

Counting Your Blessings (and Francs):

Numbers are crucial in everyday life. Master the basics from 1 to 10 (“eins” to “zehn”). Don’t forget some essential colors like “rot” (red), “blau” (blue), and “grün” (green) to describe your surroundings.

Everyday Courtesy:

Swiss politeness goes a long way. “Bitte” (Please) is your magic word for requests, while “Danke” (Thank you) expresses gratitude. Need to get someone’s attention? A polite “Entschuldigung” (Excuse me) does the trick. Mastering a simple “Ja” (Yes) and “Nein” (No) will keep the conversation flowing.

A Day in the Life:

Let’s talk about your daily routine! Learn “Frühstück” (Breakfast), “Mittagessen” (Lunch), and “Abendessen” (Dinner) to keep your tummy happy. Don’t forget “schlafen” (sleep) to recharge for the next day’s adventures.

Telling Time:

Knowing the time is key for appointments. Master “Uhr” (o’clock) and “Minute” (minute) to navigate your day like a pro.

Shopping Spree:

Need groceries? “Supermarkt” (Supermarket) is your friend. Learn “Brot” (bread) and “Wasser” (water) to start, and soon you’ll be a shopping whiz.

Hilfe! (Help!):

Sometimes, a little help goes a long way. If you’re stuck, a polite “Können Sie mir bitte helfen?” (Can you help me please?) will work wonders.

Exploring the City:

Ready to explore? A beautiful “Park” (park) might be the perfect spot to relax. Feeling peckish? Head to a “Restaurant” (restaurant). Need some cash? A “Bank” (bank) is what you’re looking for.

Remember, this is just the beginning! With consistent practice and a dash of fun, you’ll be surprised at how quickly your German blossoms. Prost (Cheers) to your language learning journey!
