Look at the images (e.g., pictures, maps) and use your knowledge of cognates to get a sense of the site content: What kinds of information does this website offer?

    • What is the date by which you have to register for them?

Under "Unterkunft," explore what kinds of accommodations are available in the city you selected. What amenities are included in the cost? How much is the deposit - Kaution - that you have to pay?
