Well nice idea..but it's hard to learn german from just reading the words...you need some native German to actually *hear* the pronunciation

Most Not-german have problems with the umlauts and the *ch*..even Phil Collins had a hard time with *Ich* und *Dich*



yeah thats true. but i think thats a chance for some people to learn maybe some words or sentences, i mean i also learned some korean, chinese and japanese words in cr forums.....so i thought why not. i hope you can also help with some lists of words ?

wäre wircklich total nett

>:> Yeah we know the deal..german sounds harsh....

I'm from saxony..my german dialect has a “softening” of the voiceless stop consonants..I

Some german sayings with translation...


Jemanden vom Hocker hauen - to knock somebody's socks off

Verdammt, wurde aber auch Zeit. - Hell, it´s about time

Lieber den Spatz in der Hand als die Taube auf dem Dach. - Better the sparrow in the hand then the dove on the roof

Die dümmsten Bauern ernten die dicksten Kartoffeln - The most stupid farmers are harvesting the thickest potatoes

Der frühe Vogel fängt den Wurm - The early bird catches the worm

Have fun...
