Suggestion for minor correction to the Herzlichen Willkommen header for Section 12.3

David K September 6, 2016, 9:03 pm
Here is a suggestion for a minor correction to the "Herzlichen Willkommen zur Einheit 4.3 ... " section of Module 12.3 . 

The section after "Einheit4.3 ..." "of the" which is in English should be in German "von deinem."  The reason "More Rocket German Interactive Audio Course" is in English is that it is a proper noun phrase - that is the name of the course.  Shouldn't the prepositional phrase "of the" be part of the German sentence describing the course?

This is the way it is presented in all other cases except for the Flashcards for section 12.3 in which this error is repeated.


Also nochmal: Herzlich Willkommen zur Einheit 4.3 of the More Rocket German Interactive Audio Course zum Thema Hochzeitsvorbereitungen.

So again: Welcome to unit 4.3 of the More Rocket German Interactive Audio Course about Wedding Preparations.


Here is an example from the next section 12.3 (labled incorrectly as 4.4) where "von deinem" is used correctly.



Herzlich Willkommen zur Einheit 4.4 von deinem More Rocket German Course.

Welcome to Unit 4.4 of your More Rocket German Course.



The other issue about the section numbers not match -- because these sections were apparently taken from a previous version of some other course and the numbers were not upgraded -- is not really a big deal although it looks sloppy.  It is understandable that as a small firm it may not be cost-effective to re-record the numbers after the actors may not still be available. 

The "von deinem" correction, however, can be easily corrected.

Cheers.

Hi David,

Yes,  "von deinem" or  "von dem" would be the correct translation to "of the". As the sentence is been recorded with "of the" which is not wrong but shouldn't be in English for unity of the lessons. I have forwarded your suggestion to the support team.

Greetings

Paul
