Einheit 2.10 (online)

video icon student handout PDF icon Das bin ich …

Watch the following video from Easy German. The first time just listen and read the subtitles when needed. Watch the video again and fill in the chart about 5 of the people we met. You can pause the video while watching to write in the German words. You do not need to write full sentences. You need this information for the activity below.


(Wie heißt du?)


(Woher kommst du?)


(Wo wohnst du?)


(Was ist dein Beruf?)


(Was ist dein Hobby?)

Rosi Gastronom
Julie Bier trinken
Lui München
Eckbert Stein Berlin
Pauli Studentin


*Achtung*  In the previous video, you may have noticed “gerne” and thought: How is that different than “gern“? We have great news for you today! They are interchangeable and both work. Throughout the activities in this book we use “gern“, but in your daily German life you are able to use either form. 

H5P activity icon Übung 1



We have been learning many different hobbies. It is important to understand the different ways one can ask you about your hobbies. Here are a few of the ways we have seen thus far: 

Was ist Ihr/dein Hobby?   
         – Ich spiele gern Gitarre. 

Was machen Sie gern in Ihrer Freizeit?/Was machst du gern in deiner Freizeit?**  
         – In meiner Freizeit wandere ich gern. / Ich wandere gern in meiner Freizeit.

Was ist Ihre/deine Lieblingsfreizeitaktivität?
         – Meine Lieblingsfreizeitaktivität ist Tanzen. 

**Please note, the verb “machen” is only used in the answer if “machen” is part of the hobby. For example: 

Was ist dein Hobby?  Ich mache gern Yoga.
