Days, Months, Seasons and Holidays | Learn German for Beginners | Lesson 6

Hallo und willkommen zurück bei Learn German
for Beginners — Deutsch für Anfänger. In the last lesson we learned all about miscommunications
and misunderstandings you may encounter as a new speaker of the German language. Du verstehst
nicht? Then go back to lesson 5 before continuing with the current lesson!
This lesson is all about German days, months, seasons and holidays!
Let’s start with the days of the week: der Montag — Monday
der Dienstag — Tuesday der Mittwoch — Wednesday
der Donnerstag — Thursday der Freitag — Friday
These are the week days, die Wochentage. Let’s now move on with the weekend, das Wochenende.
der Samstag — Saturday der Sonntag — Sunday
Let’s now continue with the months which shouldn’t be hard to remember as they’re very similar
to English. der Januar — January
der Februar — February der März — March
der April — April der Mai — May
der Juni – June der Juli – July
der August — August der September – September
der Oktober – October der November – November
der Dezember – December Einfach! Easy, isn’t it?
Let’s continue with the seasons: der Frühling — the Spring
der Sommer — the Summer der Herbst — the Autumn/Fall
der Winter — the Winter In lesson 1 we introduced the German articles
„der, die das”. You’ll notice that all seasons, months and days have the masculine article
der which makes it really easy to remember. Let’s take a look at five of the most common
international holidays that may come up in conversations.
Let’s start with one we all celebrate — der Geburtstag, the birthday. If you didn’t get
what you wanted on your Geburtstag, maybe you’ll get lucky on Valentinstag — Valentine’s
Day. And if you haven’t stuffed yourself full of enough chocolate on Valentinstag, don’t
worry because Ostern is next — Easter. Later in the year comes more candy with Halloween
which we call the same in German — Halloween. And just as you’ve recovered from the sugar
rush, get ready for Weihnachten – Christmas. Now to end the year with a bang on Silvester
– New Year’s Eve. And we wonder why we’re all fettleibig — obese.
Let’s put what you’ve learned into practice! Valentinstag ist im Winter, am vierzehnten
Februar. Valentine’s Day is in Winter, on the 14th of February.
Halloween ist im Oktober — Halloween is in October.
Ostern ist immer am Sonntag — Easter is always on Sunday.
Mein Geburtstag ist am einunddreißigsten Oktober — My birthday is on the 31st of October.
Wann ist dein Geburtstag? – When is your birthday? (GIVE THEM TIME TO TALK!!!!)
If you need to freshen up on your dates and numbers, head back to lesson 4! If you’re
struggling, don’t worry! Maybe go back, write these down and practice putting them into
simple sentences! That’s it for today’s lesson! Gut gemacht!
Well done! In the next lesson of “Learn German for Beginners”
we’ll talk about how to express your moods, feelings and emotions in German.

  1. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn Du vielleicht einmal über Deutschland und dessen Ausländerfreundlichkeit erzählst, da ich nun schon unter vielen Videos, die etwas mit Deutschland zutun hatten, Kommentare gefunden habe, die Deutschland und die Deutschen noch immer als Nazis beschimpfen. Ich finde es schade und ärgerlich dass es immernoch Menschen dort draußen gibt, die denken wir wären aus dieser Phase nicht schon längst hinaus. Vielen Dank schon einmal.

    Alles Liebe, und halte deine Arbeit aufrecht! 😀 Es macht Spaß Deine Videos zu schauen, obwohl ich Deutsche bin. X3

  2. I'd really like to see a video with countries and nationality adjectives, France -> French, England -> English, and so on.

    Also, when the lessons reach the appropriate level, I'd really love vocabulary sets: a video dedicated to restaurant vocabulary, kitchen vocabulary, city buildings, et cetera. I really want to increase my German vocabulary.

    But otherwise, I really enjoy these videos. I'm minoring in German at the moment and your videos really help me grasp what we're talking about in class.

    Gut gemacht, Freund. Ich kann nicht warten, auf das nächste Video zu sehen.

  3. The end was funny :)) Thank you soo much for showing us how to say the seasons and months and days of the week 🙂 I always find your lessons easy and fun to follow.:) A true fan here, never stop doing what your doing ^^

  4. Great video for beginners! I took a few German courses in college and my dad taught me a little bit when I was younger…this was a wonderful refresher!

  5. Great lessons !!! 

    Keep the good work ! 😉 Bis später!!

    P.S. Mein Geburstag ist am dreiundzwanzigsten November ! 🙂

  6. I'm making a little list of your videos that pertain to the next test we are having and sending it to everyone in my class XD

  7. I am very interested in german cases. I wonder how you explained them :> btw. I am Polish and for me it will not be as complicated as for English speakers, because in Polish we have 7 cases 😛 I am going to Frankfurt am Main next month and watch your vids every day 😛

  8. I noticed that Weinachten (Christmas) has not article, is it neutral that we shall use (Das), or is it just simply with no article ?
    i really like you channel though 🙂

  9. hallo! your videos are very good! they are helping me a lot, not only with the german, but with the english too.. cause i speak portuguese as my "língua materna".. 
    only one doubt.. on the other video the ordinal numbers were ending with -te, and on this video the dates are written wih -ten. i didn't get this very well :/ Danke! 

  10. hallo!! danke for helping me with German I have tried to do it for about a year but Spanish is school has gotten in the way, I'm glad I found you to help!! danke again!!

  11. Hello, i just didn't understand when we say : Valentinstag ist im Winter, am vierzehnten Februar. why we didn't say : vierzehnte, because in lesson 4 of number we said that we put number+te, therefore: vierzehnte instead vierzehnten, isn't it?? the same thing for einunddreißigsten, why not einunddreißigste???

  12. Your classes are brilliant. I am going to Munich in December and was worried that I could not understand anything in German, but hopefully with your tutorials I will at least be able to read and understand how to travel around and not appear stupid coz I didnt know the language. By the way, my daughter too is born on Oct 31st. Thank you and God bless you.

  13. I'm using your videos in addition to a German course online in order to learn German to take a master in Bern (Switzerland) next year. Thank you so much. Post more videos please. I would like to ask you if you could say the words more slowly when you are teaching a next sentence 🙂

  14. Mein Geburtstag ist am Juli 20th am Sommer.

    My birthday is on July 20th on Summer…..

    is it right?
