I want you to be aware of a very important aspect.

What is the difference between A and B when you look at the English translation?

A) Guten Morgen
Good morning

B) Es tut mir leid
I am sorry

A) is literally translated (word by word)

B) is not literally translated

In most cases you cannot translate literally (word by word)! Either it wouldn’t make sense or you wouldn’t say it that way in the other language.

When you translate B) literally into English it would be something like: „It does me sorrow“. Nobody would say this in English!

So, it is important to know that you should never try to translate something word by word into another language!

That’s why it is important not to learn only individual words, but whole phases!

And on the other hand, don’t try to understand every German word (at the beginning). It is enough if you understand the rough meaning. Step by step you will add more words to you vocabulary.

*Oh, and just because many students have already asked this: No, it’s not a mistake on my website. 😅

Bitte schön, Keine Ursache, Gern geschehen and Nichts zu danken really mean the same. You should also check out: 15 ways to say thank you in German.
