Wie heißt du?
How to introduce yourself and ask someone's name. The characters use the phrases 'Mein Name ist' and 'Ich heiße' and they also refer to first and surname. The question is asked in the 'du' form and later in the 'Sie' form.
This is a good way to introduce new vocabulary to German beginners or to reinforce it. The introduction to the 'du' and 'Sie' forms is good and students should be able to work out the two different uses. Students could be given tasks to listen out for; for example, write down three German boy's names or three German girl's names, find out the meaning of Vorname and Familienname.
