Our journalists are still in Jena. During a walk Philipp discovers a plaque on which is inscribed “Jena – Zug der Geister”. What could this be about? Paula and Philipp tell the story of Jena’s past in a radio play. How was Friedrich Schiller, the new professor at Jena University, received by his students? And what strange discovery did Johann Wolfgang von Goethe make shortly after in the drawer of Schiller’s desk?

This lesson is the right place to look in more detail at the verb “werden” which, as an auxiliary verb, can express the future.
