    Re: [Study] German

    "Hey du, wann gedenkst du mir mein Geld zurück zu zahlen?"

    "Hey du, wann zahlst du mir mein Geld zurück?"

    "Hey du, wann gibst du mir meine Kohle wieder?"

    ... sounds all a bit rude, though. Third one is with a little slang but common.
    You can only use that with people you're familiar with, not with e.g. a customer.

    Re: [Study] German

    If you want it formal:

    Können Sie mir sagen, wann Sie gedenken, mir mein Geld zurück zu erstatten?

    Wann kann ich mit Ihrer Zahlung rechnen?

    Ich würde gerne wissen, wann mir mein Geld zurückerstattet wird?

    The second opinion is for a letter. The 1st and the 3rd are for speaking use.

    Really, my English writing is horrible.

    Re: German Thread

    I post this here on request for a friend who's learning German. In case that the bandwidth is used up, just try again the next day. Please don't PM me to 'fix the links' until it's really broken for some reason.

    Kauderwelsch: Deutsch (download)
    This is part of a very popular book series called Kauderwelsch which is usually written in German aside from this one. The books introduce the chosen language in a highly compressed, informative and amusing way (including flirting and swearing), explaining basic grammar and pronunciation, important and casual phrases, common slang, traveler's vocabulary and lot's of interesting trivia about the country's people and culture.

    They're meant for globetrotters who want a quick but not dirty start into the language of their target country, being able to communicate fast with the native people instead of hammering through long grammar lessons. It gives you a basic understanding of grammar, just enough to built simple sentences yourself and basically all important vocabulary you'll need for the first weeks. The focus of the books is 'understand and be understood', not more or less.

    It's also a great piece for emergency situations because it contains some very useful 'important words and phrases' lists. The archive file contains the ebook (pdf, 13,8mb) and the audio tracks (mp3, 17mb). You don't need the book if you just want to train your hearing ability and you don't need the audio if you just want to read.


    Erzähl mir was: Langzahn, das Walroß (download)
    This was a series of collector's magazines for children published in Germany from 1985 till 1987. An issue was published bi-weekly, ending with a total of 52 mags and a christmas special mag. I started elementary school in 1986 and basically learned how to read fluently with these stories.

    Every issue contained around 6-9 short stories (fairytales, folk tales, famous novels, original stories,...). Most were oneshots and some were longer stories split into several parts which appeared regularly or irregularly in the magazine. The books don't contain any adds or flashy stuff, just the stories with really pretty art.

    Now, how does that help me in learning German? Well, every issue came with a audio tape

    The tape contained all the stories from the book, read 1:1 by German voice actors. So you basically can read the story and listen to a native speaker at the same time who's reading the text exactly by the book (but with lots of emotions, sound effects and fun). Of course, you can download a normal German 'adults' audio book and have the same effect but I find it more helpful with lots of different short stories spoken by different people, with different art and sounds. It's just more memorable and not getting tiresome in the long run. There's even a little bell ringing when you have to turn the pages ^.^

    You can download the full collection (all 53 issues as pdf including the audio tracks) on torrent. Because this download is over 5 GB, I separated one of the stories (40 MB) for you as example in the download link I posted above this text. It's the one my kids like the most

    Re: German Thread

    Wow Enini, the kiddie books look cool! I've downloaded the ones you've uploaded, and although my current vocabulary only allowed me to understand that there's something related to vikings, Norway, a rainbow and a walrus going on (xD), I think they'll be really helpful in the future when I get to know moar words :x Also good to study pronunciation. Thanks! Downloading the torrent now

    The other one is good, but not awesome...translating directly without a context is weird, i'm sure i'll forget everything in 5min. But it's good as a fast guide, danke :333

    Re: German Thread

    Haha, you're welcome

    Yes, the Kauderwelsch is really just a quick reference. It's not meant to be a study book but I often find the info there easier to understand than the long explanations in bigger books. I love such summary books myself because they contain everything needed on a few pages and fit in my pocket ^^

    Btw, I found some nice German children and youth books... hmmm... will up them here once my router cable is fixed

    Re: German Thread

    If you stuck with some words I have a good translation website for you.
    http://www.leo.org
    You can also listen to the pronunciation of the german words you searched for.
    Even thought it sounds a bit "bot" like.

    Re: German Thread

    I'm downloading some songs in german so I can listen to them on my car and get used to the sounds. I can't make anything from most of them, though >.>

    Buuut this one sounded clear and I could make many words out of it! ^-^ Can't translate yet, though.

    When I get home, I'll try to understand some of it and write it down...expanding my vocabulary is being the worst part >.<

    Ich lass es zu, komm lass es zu! Komm lass es uns noch einmal tun!!
    Ich geb nicht auf. Gehst du mit mir, gehst du mit mir mit auf uns zu?
    Fällt dir nix ein? Komm leg nicht auf! Komm reg dich auf und komm zur Ruh.

    Ich bin dabei, du bist dabei, wir sind dabei uns zu verliern.

    That's indeed a nice song ^^

    And yeah, very basic words and frequently repeated in different word plays. Should be nice lyrics for a beginner *waits for the trans*

    Schandmaul <3
    And that song in particular is 'Gänsehaut pur' on stage.

    Though, she has to become familiar with Saltatio Mortis first, since that's where I'll drag her when she visits me. Tickets are already on the way \o/
