Chapter 9: Basic Questions and Answers

In chapter 9 you will learn some basic conversational questions and ways to answer them. This will be the basis for most beginner German conversations you will encounter. Knowing these will be a great foundation for your German learning.

About Herr Antrim

Herr Antrim is a high school German teacher with a passion for teaching as many people German as he can. With this in mind he created the YouTube channel “Learn German with Herr Antrim” in 2011. The videos on his YouTube channel were originally intended for his German students in his physical classes at Edwardsville High School in Edwardsville, Illinois, but after some positive feedback from other German teachers and German learners, he decided to continue making videos.

Herr Antrim, his YouTube channel and accompanying website, www.germanwithantrim.com, have been featured on many lists of the top YouTube channels, blogs and other resources for learning German.

In September of 2018 he started a series of videos that were designed to teach the very basics of the German language with the goal of having 20 lessons that would teach people everything they needed to know for the A1 (beginner) level of German. Combined with his e-book and other resources available via the links within this course, learners should be able to participate in a short, simple conversation in German. 

After years of complaining about the outdated, boring, error-ridden textbooks in his German classes, his students encouraged him to “write your own book if this one is so bad”. So he did. This course is meant to be a replacement of the entire first semester of information that is taught in his German 1 course. He hopes that you find it useful and that you enjoy learning from this book. 

If you are one of those people who likes to follow people on social media, Herr Antrim has a few of those. You can find them listed in order of how much Herr Antrim likes them below.
