Lesson Script

A Nice Walk Ruined
Ein Ruinierter Spaziergang

Hi! My name is Nina. I live in Berlin.
Hallo! Ich heiße Nina. Ich wohne in Berlin.

This city is very big and loud.
Diese Stadt ist sehr groß und laut.

Just like New York.
Genauso wie New York.

Today I walk through the city.
Ich gehe heute zu Fuß durch die Stadt.

Every district has a different atmosphere.
Jeder Bezirk hat eine andere Atmosphäre.

There are narrow and broad streets, grey and colorful houses.
Es gibt schmale und breite Straßen, graue und bunte Häuser.

And there are people everywhere.
Und überall sind viele Menschen.

They often have a dog.
Sie haben oft einen Hund.

Sadly the dog poop mostly ends up on the sidewalk.
Die Hundehaufen landen leider meistens auf dem Gehweg.

Therefore I have to be careful where I walk.
Deshalb muss ich aufpassen, wo ich laufe.

Suddenly I hear a child crying and a dog barking.
Plötzlich höre ich ein Kind weinen und einen Hund bellen.

I make one step backwards.
Ich mache einen Schritt rückwärts.

Of course I step into dog poop.
Natürlich trete ich in einen Hundehaufen.


What a bummer!
So ein Ärger!

I run home quickly and clean my shoes.
Ich renne schnell nach Hause und reinige meine Schuhe.

Next time I will take my bicycle.
Nächstes Mal nehme ich mein Fahrrad.

That is safer!

Das ist sicherer!
