Übung 3-10a

Ordering groceries on-line is now common in Germany. The two companies linked below offer a full product line and their websites include images and prices.

  1. Kaufland (Scroll down to the food icons and click on those.)

  2. (Click on the tab "Einkaufen" on the upper left.)

Note that weights are marked in kilos (Kilogramm, abbreviated kg) and in hundred-gram (Gramm, abbreviated g) increments. Other quantities include "Stück" (literally "piece", so it would be "each"), "Dose" (can), "Glas" (jar), "Beutel" (bag), or "Schachtel" (box), among others. Liquids are measured in liters and milliliters (Liter und Milliliter, abbreviated l and ml). See the Seite 5.


  1. Pretend that you just moved into a new dwelling in Germany and you want to have a well-stocked kitchen with a variety of things to eat and drink (not 50 frozen pizzas).

  2. Write out your list to include the product, unit (by the kilo, bag, carton, bottle, etc.), price, how much you buy, and the total for that product. Use the lists below as a model.

  3. Create a list with a total of 10 different items, including 5 items from each store.

  4. Include a total amount spent.

  5. Submit the lists in an MS-Word document to the designated assignment folder on BOLT. Include Übung 3-10b below in the same document.
