CBG 2.22 | Mein Vater wohnte lange in einem kleinen Dorf
So far in Coffee Break German we've learned to use haben, sein and some modal verbs in the Präteritum. In this lesson Andrea and Mark look at other verbs in the Präteritum which are not used commonly in spoken German, but you'll find them in any story you read. You'll also learn about some irregular verbs in this tense, including kommen and gehen, and Julia is on hand to tell us about two very famous German writers: Goethe and Schiller.
