Translation and hints: holidays and travel

Questions and advice on answering them

QuestionHint
  • Wo warst du letztes Jahr im Urlaub?

Remember to answer this question in the past tense and then you could possibly add on what you’d like to do next year in the future tense.
  • Hat dir das Land gefallen? Warum?
  • Did you like the country? Why?
Your answer doesn't have to be complicated – you can mention the weather and the food for example.
  • Möchtest du später gerne reisen?
  • Would you like to travel in the future?
Don't just answer 'yes', say where you want to go and why.
  • Was gefällt dir am besten an Deutschland?
  • What do you like best about Germany?
Even if you've never been to Germany, you can talk about the things you’ve learnt at school and the German people you've met in Britain.
  • Wie oft siehst du die Nachrichten?
  • How often do you watch the news?
As well as saying how often you see the news, say which bits of it interest you the most, eg the sport and politics.
