Dialog 1: In the Kitchen

Katrin: Mutti, was machst du denn da? Ist das Wienerschnitzel?
Katrin: Mom, what are you making there? Is that Wienerschnitzel? (breaded veal cutlet)

Mutter: Ja, dein Lieblingsessen natürlich.
Mother: Yes, your favorite dish, of course.

Katrin: Toll!
Katrin: Great!

Mutti: Aber Katrin, ich hab' gerade entdeckt, dass wir keine Kartoffeln für die Pommes frites haben. Kannst du mir schnell Kartoffeln bei EDEKA holen?
Mother: But Katrin, I just discovered that we don't have any potatoes for the French fries. Can you get me some potatoes at (the) EDEKA (market) real quick?

Katrin: Ja, das kann ich. Brauchst du sonst noch etwas?
Katrin: Yes, I can. Do you need anything else?

Mutter: Wenn es ein paar schöne Gurken gibt, wäre das auch gut.
Mother: If there are a few nice cucumbers, that would be good.

Katrin: Und Brötchen?
Lukas: And bread rolls?

Mutter: Nee, das haben wir schon.
Mother: No, we already have that.

Katrin: OK, dann bin ich gleich wieder da.
Katrin: OK, then I'll be right back.

Mutter: Hast du etwas Geld?
Mother: Do you have some money?

Katrin: Ja, genug, um ein paar Kartoffeln und Gurken zu kaufen.
Katrin: Yeah, enough to buy a few potatoes and cucumbers.

Mutter: Natürlich bekommst du das Geld von mir zurück.
Mother: Of course, you'll get the money back from me.

Katrin: Es geht schon, Mutti. Tschüs!
