    (...) Und du bist ein lecker Ding :grin:
    What did you want to say? "lecker Ding" :confused: I don't understand the noun combined with the adjective. Please write it in English again!

    Was wurdest du auf Deutsch sagen? Ich bin nicht sicher, was du bedeutest.

    Erm... Ich denke, dass google.de dir besser helfen wuerde als wir! Ich wuerde sagen, dass wir "going to" sagen, um eine Bedeutung von in naher Zukunft zu geben.

    Ich denke, dass "will" formeller ist. Dieses Wort ist auch betont.
    Was meinst du damit? (nicht bedeutest)

    I'd be tempted to say that 'will' implies that it's less likely to happen, or is in doubt.

    'What are you going to do on Saturday?'

    'What will you do if she's not there?'

    "going to" to express the future I think

    I'm going to do it but not now
    Ich werde es tun, aber nicht jetzt

    Und du bist ein lecker Ding :grin:
    Do you guys use 'lecker' to mean 'nice' etc? They do in Danish, but not in German.

    J'ai décidé que je ne vais pas faire l'Espagnol l'année prochaine...

    Au lieu de ça, je choisirai l'espagnol ou l'allemand pour Year 13!

    There's no point me doing an AS if I'm not going to get the A. German, I think will be too hard for me to do that, so I think I'm taking what you said about taking time as well.

    So I'm doing Spanish AS in Year 13. Then, I'll get to know the languages department and have less stress, because I plan on taking loads of maths modules next year.

    Will you continue to study it casually? And I think you made a good decision if you want to give yourself the time to assimilate it and feel comfortable with it.

    I am so glad you said that.

    I said "Was meinst du?" during my oral exam in May, and I have been certain ever since that I should have said bedeutest!

    Naww, jij bent zo schattig! Du bist so süss

    BTW on the word 'so'
    In German it's 'so' (pronounced like ZO)
    In Dutch it's 'zo' (pronounced exactly like it's written!)

    & Niks te danken, als je nog meer (taal)vragen voor ons hebt, zijn wij altijd hier om je te helpen!
    Oh dear I'm already getting confused with German and Dutch...

    Just talking with you peeps builds up my vocabulary and improves my grammar

    I don't know how many times I can say thank you but... Thank you thank you x1000

    Do you always have to use 'te' when saying to (verb) eg te leren - to learn?

    I want to say "I prefer to learn languages with my friends than at school..." Ik prefereer talen met mijn vrienden te leren dan op school.

    dict.leo.org gives me unentschlossen or unschlüssig, or perhaps even wechselwillig, which sounds cool but may not quite be right.

    Edit: And I would probably stick a 'genau' before the 'so'.

    :lol: Ich wollte ausprobieren, ob ein deutscher das verstehen würde.
    Octo hat mir gesagt, dass das wahrscheinlich war :P
    Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie man das selbe als "lekker ding" auf Deutsch sagt!

    Oh
    I didn't realise that phrase skipped high-German :L
    But I know that the word "Ding" has a somewhat inappropriate meaning?? ;D

    国际学校 有门北方话课吗? 广东话呢?
    广东话课却反而没有, 过有时候学生们会用广 话沟通,毕竟广东话是 香港最主要的语言。

    ¿Por qué? Parecía que tenías muchas ganas de aprenderlo. Espero que todavía lo estudies en tu tiempo libre para prepararte para el exámen en el año 13, porque si tratas de aprenderlo todo entonces, será muy difícil como tendrás que hacer las solicitudes de admisión a las unversidades...

    That happens :rolleyes:

    Yes! (but only in a sentence) to learn on it's own is just "leren"

    Never heard "prefereer" before but I can see where you got it from

    You would sound much more authentic if you said:

    "Ik leer (veel) liever talen met mijn vrienden dan op school."
    "Ich lerne (viel) lieber..."

    Or you could simply say:

    "Ik heb de voorkeur om talen met mijn vrienden te leren."

    I just chose one from dict.cc. :blush:

    Is my GCSE so...wie short for genauso...wie then? Is there a technical difference in usage, or do you just have to gain a feel for it?
