Note:

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 tranlsate 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 woud 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.

In German we often have several possibilities to express something. Don’t worry, if you study with me, you’ll understand it all step by step.

      Motivation

Nichts ist besonders hart, wenn …

… man es in kleine Einheiten aufteilt. Mach(e) jede Lektion sorgfältig und wenn du dich wohlfühlst geh(e) über zur nächsten Lektion.

Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small portions. Do every lesson carefully and when you feel comfortable go on to the next lesson.

Keep it up – you can do it!
