ruf mich an - English translation - saygelapdever.ml German-English dictionary
Hangman Hangman Fancy a game? Or learning new words is more your thing?
So… is there a catch-all translation? I have thought quite a while about this, and the best I can come up with is this:. A German word is the opposite of an English word? So schon is not of much help. But already is. So, the first sentence expresses that we thought it to be earlier, and the second expresses that I consider 10 times a lot.
And erst is the exact opposite. The first sentence expresses that we thought it to be later, and the second tells you that I consider 10 to be not that much and that there are more to come. There is not really one word for this in English, but think of the opposite of already. Now the last 2 examples were actually translated using only… and erst CAN be a translation for only… but only if we are talking about a process.
So erst always has the notion of an ongoing process, a notion of time… that is important to keep in mind if you want t translate only. Anyway… thinking of erst as the opposite of already will save you all that extra thought. Here are some more examples. Does that mean anything for real?
There is no such thing as dritteres or vierteres , but you could actually say it. People would probably find it witty. It can mean first but it can also mean the opposite of already. It is used a lot on German,especially in the second sense so try to grasp that. If you have any questions or suggestions just leave me a comment. I hope you liked it and see you next time. Hi Emanuel, I have a question. First off erstens! Second, I had a few questions about translating the example sentences.
Something with the idea of being woken up at 10 or anytime after that? So you could say the German sentence also when you know that 8 will definitely be the time you get to leave. So the English version would be the one you suggested:. But it kind of also means that you want to be woken at 10 sharp and no later… erst just indicates that this is unusually late.
Erst does not imply and never does that something might have happened later. It means that the concert started at 9 sharp and that the speaker find this kind of late… maybe because usually concerts start earlier, maybe because it was scheduled to start earlier, maybe because he or she was there already at 6 and had 3 hours to pass without anything to do or any other option…. Hope thats helps. If not, keep asking :. I think I have elaborated about the couple schon-erst in the article on schon. Schon is the direct opposite of it. So erst expresses the speakers opinion as to how progressed he thinks something is measured by SOME standards his own, society, custom.
Hah… when it comes to vocabulary I think I am really out of the ordinary. I repeat that over and over until it sticks. The reason for this is that I think when it comes to vocab, quantity is king. If you throw words at you and 20 stick that is more than if you go for 20 with nice examples and context and stuff and you remember 17… there will always be stuff you forget. For French I just read books and wrote list after list with German-French pairs no context. I always add words to a list that I know, and such that I kind of know. Then I repeat 2 lists over and over and when I know them I take the next one.
For Italian I used one of those flash card boxes and I made piles… in the beginning of some 50 words… at the end I had 3 piles with and I would just repeat like a machine in the subway or on the toilet. It has worked great for me and I really believe that quantity is king. You need about words to really use a language. You can point at a tomato but you cannot gesture the words despite or meanwhile in any way…so THOSE should be priority… not the everyday nouns they give you in textbooks.

Nouns are useless compared to verbs and functional words. I know the words in my language so I have plenty of context there already. That makes for maybe 4 lists with around 50 words each. Then I start reading. There are these language learning novels with easy language and I use those as a start.
And then I know maybe 55 out of 60 words by heart. However, I have despised that from the core of my heart. I need translations… not so much to know the exact translation but rather to find the boundaries of the meaning-bubble of a word…. However, I think this is mostly a question of training. I am way too lazy for that :. A friend of mine Italian is using a German-only dictionary and there have been several occasion where he totally got it wrong… Anyway… it is a fine method, I think it does take a lot of training and a lot of work. But after all that is what it takes to learn a language quickly.
If you want to hear a really annoying translator…. I read comment threads on Youtube, other video sites and even serious discussion boards sometimes… spelling is only for wizards :. With my English it is a weird story… I had 9 years of English in school and in the beginning I really liked it just as I did like French but soon it changed and I kind of just sat through it.
Then, I applied for Erasmus in Finland and I had to improve my ENglish so I watched movies and tried to understand rap-lyrics and it came pretty quickly. Then, I was in Finland for 7 months, got an American girlfriend, was in the US for 5 months and ever since I have aimed for complete native-like fluency … I watch a lot of videos, read aloud to myself and I do work on my accent to make it disappear by picking difficult words or phrases and saying over and over until I get it right. After all, I think 9 years of school English do leave traces in your brain and all you have to do is reactivate it and then improve.
As for accent, i had none. I think any German, German-Swisse and Austrian person understands Hochdeutsch without any problems and I think most people are able to reduce their accent to a degree, that they can be easily understood. For instance, for a Bavarian it would just be weird to not tongue roll the r so they will do that even if the rest is perfect Hochdeutsch. Can I understand all dialects. Clearly no..
I think the Ruhrgebiet dialects and the Berlin Brandenburg one are rather simple to understand.
follow link Especially Berlin tends to be a bit slooooooow and over articulate in its own right. However, if you lack certain basic patterns of what letter changes to what sound in dialect you will have problems with any dialect… As for status… I think the stereotypes about the people who speak the accent are generalized to the accent.
But then, the same is true for Bavarians. It would be interesting whether a person from Bavaria just north of Autria has real issues with Austrian. Learning Hochdeutsch is definitely a good choice though and in pretty much any text book there are one or two chapters about the D-A-CH-countries based on their car plate codes … so I think a language school in Austria might use the same book as one in Hamburg no guarantee though … As for my difficulties with pronouncing English… there still are, and there always will be I reckon.
I was like 10 times slower than an American and you could literally watch me rearrange my mouth I have trained and now I am super quick.
So… this I tried very hard and there were several other words I trained with — all the girls in the world — generally I think I am okay with that now, but of course new issues arise. Which pisses me off because I cannot talk that fast yet without swallowing syllables. But there is one sentence I am working on at the moment — Not in in that order. I can say that accurately but there are limits to how fast I can say it. I still stumble.
So… I think the ultimate challenge is that German and English native speakers have a different position for the tip of their tongue.
