Learn to speak German

#1 Postby willpeavy » Mon Nov 14, 2005 5:58 pm

Hallo, mein name ist Will.

That's the only German I know.

I made this thread so that people can learn and practice German!

So how do you say, "I am vegan" in German?

:D

Pretty good!

Johnathan can really speak German very well, only a slight but cool accent 8)

Okay, no new lessons for now, i'll just correct the above ;)

In general, all nouns are written with a capital in German!


Hallo, mein name ist Will.

=> Hallo, mein Name ist Will.

Or you could just say: Hallo, ich bin Alex - Hello, i'm Alex.


Meine Mutter ist auf Deutchland.
=
My mother is German

=> Meine Mutter is aus Deutschland = My mother is from Germany.

Meine Mutter ist Deutsche = My mother is German.


Richard: very good! Only the capitals - am Besten, Bahnhof, Einzelkind.

Haben Sie geschwestern?

=> Haben Sie Geschwister?


Eine bier, bitte.

=> Ein Bier, bitte.

Holy crap = Heilige Scheisse! :shock:

Now learn those before we add new vocabulary :lol:
No one said it would be easy.
