1: Tisch = Table, Pult = lectern
2: German rule: "-chen und -lein machen alle Dinge klein" Federmäppchen is to belittle Federmappe
3: "Der Flieger" in the classroom is a paper airplane
4: Landkarte = map, Atlas = atlas
In German an "Atlas" is a big collection of maps
5: Etui = sheath or little case / box
6: your appartment is really modern (style).
7: am Stadtrand = suburb, auf dem Land = in the country
8: depends on content
9: I'm looking forward to see you

Yes, Kumiko is totally right. Depending on context "Flieger" can be an earoplane as well as the pilot and is even a lower rank of the airforce.

Komikos answers are correct....
question 6 = "Ihre Wohnung is GANZ modern =
Her Apartment is totally modern (fashionable, up to date, etc) or: her apartment is really modern or quite modern.
Etui ( étui) is actually a french word but used in Germany.
question 8 = zwischen = between
von.. bis = to and from (from and to)

kumiko's answers are perfectly correct. Regarding question 3): "Flieger" is a slang word for "aeroplane". In a classroom, they are probably talking about a paper airplane. If that does not fit, please give us the full context.Source(s): German native

1) "Tisch" has the same meaning as "table", "Pult" is a special table/Tisch, most often a bit inclined and generally used for writing.
2) "Federmäppchen" is the minimisation of "Federmappe. (The ending -chen is characteristic for this)
3) I'm terribly sorry, but I've no idea what that could be ^?^...
4) An "Atlas" is a book, containing many maps from all over the world. (It can also be a book about specific maps, e.g. an "Autoatlas", containing road maps... but an "Atlas" is always an accumulation of maps)
A "Landkarte" is exactly what you'd guess it is. A map of a certain country.
5) An "Etui" is a pencil case.
6) In this context, I'd translate it as "very", but the two other translations are correct as well.
7) If you're living on the "Stadtrand" you're practically living between city and the countryside (It could also be described as "suburb").
"Auf dem Land" on the other hand means that you're living deep in the countryside.
8) In most cases, there's no difference.
9) I'm looking forward to seeing you.
