I was bored...so I thought, since a lot of people seem to like Germany, I would like to share some germans words with you!:3
First, in germany exist three 'articles'. In the english language is only one, 'the'.
In germany the articles are 'Die' (feminine), 'Der' (masculine) and 'Das', neutral.
A lot of those articles don't make sense for the words there are used to..xD (For example it is: 'Die' Sonne (the Sun). But actually the Sun is a thing, and not feminine. ) This will be very confusing to learn. ; ;
So I will teach you some basics, and how you pronounce it. :3
Guten Morgen - Good morning [Gootan Morgan]
Guten Abend - Good evening [Gootan Ahband]
Wie geht es dir? - How are you? [Wee gayht es dihr?]
Mir geht es gut! - I'm fine! [Meer gayht es goht]
Mir geht es nicht so gut. - I don't feel very good. [Meer gayht es nisht/nicht sow goht.]
And there comes the CH (nicht.) I noticed this is very, very difficult to pronounce for people outside germany. But german people can't pronounce the th, haha.xD A lot of people use s instead. You need to practice, just like us germans the th.
You can make the ch sound with your throat. It's similiar to a cat, when it's angry, the hiss.:3
You have to press your molars a bit on your tounge and then let air go out. It takes a lot of practice, but you will be able to do it one day!:3 If not, you can still use 'sh' instead of ch then.
Let us go on!:3
Ich liebe dich - I love you [Ich/ish leebe deech/deesh]
Ich hab dich lieb - I like you [Ich/ish hahb deech/deesh leb]
Ich mag dich nicht - I don't like you [Ich/ish mahg deech/deesh nicht.]
Wo ist die bitte die Toilette? - Where is the toilet, please? [Woh ist beeteh deh towletah?]
If you have any more words you would like to know, just ask.:3 If you have other questions, ask too!
German lesson number two:
German lesson number two!:3 - Polite talkingHello there!;///;
I never expected this journal would become so popular.O///O
So I decided to make another one to help you!:3
Let's start. :iconteatimeplz:
In english, everybody is usually 'you'.
In germany, you have to address people as 'Sie' when they become adults. It's polite, and if you don't do it you seem very rude. There are two ways of 'Sie' in german. One is the feminine sie. This one is used for females. "Sie spielt draußen" - "She is playing outside."
And there is the other Sie, the one I just told you about.
The femine sie is written without a capital letter, the polite sie is written with a capital S - Sie. The polite sie can be used for both, female and male.
Some expample sentence with 'Sie':
Do you know where I can find the toilet? - Wissen Sie , wo die Toillete ist? [ Wisan se wow de towletah ist?]
