Food 1 is the seventh (assuming read left-to-right) skill in the German language tree. It contains six lessons teaching the names of various foods, the traits the foods may have (sweetness, etc.), and a verb for experiencing these traits.

Grammar TipsEdit


Am is a preposition in German that can mean "at the" or "on the."


This verb means "to have" in a possessive sense; if you're having something for dinner, do not use haben in this context.

Mittagessen, etc.Edit

For the purposes of Duolingo:

  • Frühstück = breakfast
  • Mittagessen = lunch
  • Abendessen = dinner

Compound wordsEdit

Compound words are very common in German. These words contain two or more parts that are themselves words. For example, Mittagessen comes from the two words meaning "noon" and "meal." Commonly, a sound will connect the parts of a compound word. The gender of a compound word will be the gender of the last part of the compound word, being the most important.
