Nice!

Remember that Die Maus (The Mouse) is intended for children,so that the language spoken is pretty basic German,and explanations about what is happening are simplyfied.
Same style as for the Thomas the tank engine in English.

Nev,

the pictures or video is pretty muc h a self explanation.

The train arrives at the station and leaves and it shows you who is doing what to get the train into the station and when it leaves, so there is one person involved bringing the train into the station and one person takes the train out of the station.
Secondly when a train is washed outside and cleaned inside.
You will notice you may find a German locodriver but will very rarely find a German cleaner and when you listen to the names of the cleaner none of them sound like Sauerkraut.

It is usually below their standars to clean cars, roads etc.etc.

Tom,

This one is a special one for you!
Jiskefet means garbagecan in Frisian language.
The 3 guys forming Jiskefet have earned themselves a cult status in Holland over the last 10 years or so,their humor is absurd and liked by a large number of people,in particular highly educated!
Their series about office life is very famous,me being an office worker myself can see a lot of similarity with the real thing.
The manager is called Storm,according to his own words,he served with the toughest elite troops in the army,but no one has been able to verify that as yet.
Mind you,Jiskefet is not only about German people,they made numerous sketches about all sorts of subjects.
I hope you like it.

Paul.


And another one,hope you do not mind!

Ja,genau!

My German goes back to my last days at school in the mid seventies,whatever i have learned there must have been lost in time,i guess.
Think i will stick to English (for this forum) and Dutch (Nederlands outside this forum) from now on.

Tom,did you like the sketch about Derrick?

Paul,

Thank you very much for the Tampert film. I also watched another episode that Youtube suggested. Tampert works for Germans as they try to speak real German. I'm afraid Tampert won't work for members of this forum who neither know Derrick (Derrick was sold to many other countries, so some may know him) nor speak German or can read Dutch.

The Kreditoren film didn't work well for me. They use German words and some German sentences, but a lot they say is just gibberish.

I learnt French at school (late '70s, early '80s) - but I better don't write anything in French. It's a shame, but I forgot most of what I've learned about French.
Regards
Tom
