Die Regenbogen-Flaggen

Die Regenbogen-Flaggen:

Vielleicht hattet ihr die Gelegenheit, es zu sehen… Meinen Kollegen bei der Arbeit haben darüber gesprochen. Ich denke, dass heutzutage es eine Frage für viele Menschen in Wien ist: Was sind die Regenbogen-Flaggen auf Straßenbahnen für!

Es wird eine Pride parade am 16. Juni Samstag geben. Es ist nicht nur für Homosexuell Menschen, sondern auch für alle anderen: demonstrieren die Solidarität, Gleichberechtigung und vor allem: Toleranz.
Es begann 1969 in New York in Cristopher Street. Es gab einen Zwischenfall zwischen Homosexuellen und der Polizei. Es ist als Christopher Street Day oder kurz CSD bekannt.
Die Parade in diesem Jahr in Wien beginnen und enden am Rathaus. Es ist etwa 5 Kilometer.
Wir sind in Wien, ein richtige inspirierende Stadt und ein Ort für viele Nationen und Kulturen leben. Ich denke, einer der Werte von Wien ist seine Toleranz und Verständnis gegenüber verschiedenen leute. Die Frage ist, wie diese Leute diese Toleranz zu beantworten. Wie die coltures mischen sich hier mit einander.

How much money do you “spenden” in Vienna? (2/2)

How much money do you “spenden” in Vienna? (2/2):

So the point is if they used to OFTEN meet there, we use WENN. meaning they used to meet each other in Museumquartier when ever they had the chance. On the other hand, if they met once (or almost once) in PAST in Museum Quartuer, we want to use ALS in this sentence. In fact the freuqency they met helps us to chose between ALS or WENN.
The last topic is about “während”. Remember we can use it as “Temporal Konnektor” as well as “Temporal Präposition”. The difference is when you use it as preposition, you need to use “Genitiv” form after it:
Ich fliege nach Sardinien, während meines Urlaubs.
Ich fliege nach Sardinien, während ich Urlaub habe.
We all know about “Nebensatz” and “Hauptsatz“. “Hauptsatz” (“Independent claus” in English, FAN BOYS!) is the one with the verb in the second position in the sentece structure. “hauptsatz” is a sentence that makes sense even without the “Nebensatz”. However “Nebensatz” (“Dependent clause” in English) is the one with the verb (if it has any) at the last position and its meaning is dependent to the “Hauptsatz”.
Exercise: try to mark the “Nebensatz” and “Hauptsatz” in the sentence “Ich fliege nach Sardinien, während ich Urlaub habe”. What happens to the position of verb versus subject if we swap the place of NS and HS?

How much money do you “spenden” in Vienna? (1/2)

How much money do you “spenden” in Vienna? (1/2):
In the next two posts am going to talk about a bunch of topics. So these posts are not about one main topic and rather some divergent small topics. I would like to share with you a few points and hints we learned recently in class with Alex.
The first one is my favourite and that is mistaking meaning of words that look similar in two different languages. For example Portuguese and English share roots of numerous vocabularies with English, quite often you can simply assume the words that look similar in these languages are equivalent. The verb “as(s)istir” in Spanish/Portuguese means to attend, i.e. a meeting or a conference. However “to assist” in English has nothing to do with attending! So in Lisbon you may assist a conference, but in London you can not assist a conference!
Today we learned from Alex “spenden” in German has nothing to do with “to spend” in English. “Spenden” is to donate money or contribute and that is quite different from the verb “to spend” in English. So watch out, if you want to spend some money in Vienna you have to “Geld ausgeben” and if you want to donate some money to charity, you have to “spenden”.
The next topic is about the difference of “als” and “wenn”. Remember both of these two can be used as “Temporale Konnektoren”. They are used in situation when you have two actions/events coinciding with each other in time. Try to fill in the empty spaces (examples from Alex):
____ wir geheiratet haben, er betrunken in die Kirche.
____ ich hunger habe, gehe ich meditiren.
So in the first sentence, they got married once in PAST and a fellow during the marriage ceremony lost the track of number of beers he had. So you have to use ALS here.In the second sentence, there is no specific time, I don’t plan when I will become hungry. The sentence is referring to any general moment in time. We use WENN in this situation. Till here I guess it is clear for every one. But try this sentence:
____es etwas zu ferien gab, trefen wir uns in Museumquartier.
ALS or WENN?
