Feelings in German

Want to say how you really feel – in German? This free audio lesson is for you! Maybe you’d like to get to know native speakers better, and for them to learn more about you. One thing’s for sure – we all need to express our emotions, and without knowing the right words this can be frustrating in a new language.

After this lesson you’ll be able to say in German that you’re happy, in a hurry, busy or worried. Maybe the German speaker you’re talking to is angry, or frightened, or just a bit tired. Being able to express these feelings in German to the people around you is important - for them and for you. I really encourage you to take the time to learn these German words and phrases - you’ll be pleased you did!
