wie geht es dir?=how are you
mir geht es gut=i´m fine
wo kommst du her?=where are you from

you can use it in different ways
for example if you ask...dunno...Can you do this..../speak....... then you can say gar nicht its like "not at all" its a german slang so its difficult to say. but i think when he had said this he meant not at all

Ich liebe dich? *almost all the German I know*

I know a song in German, but that's about it. I wanted to learn but apparently our German teacher at school had some trouble with the law or some kind of breakdown and left and we haven't had a teacher since.

The little symbol ß -what sound is that supposed to have?
