    That's perfectly fine and clear
    But my Dutch ear
    Would much rather hear

    "Ich werde kein Deutsch lernen" oder "Deutsch lernen, soll ich nie!"
    But the latter sounds very strong, and would almost give an impression that you have something against German so yhh the former is a better alternative

    Huhuhuh?! Oh I see what you mean Yesshh "kein" can indeed mean "not a" but it can also mean "not" or "no"

    Hmm I'll try to give some examples now

    That is not a book = Das ist kein Buch.
    That is not (isn't) tee. = Das ist kein Tee.
    I have no time to learn German this year. = Ich habe keine Zeit, dieses Jahr Deutsch zu lernen. ABER
    " Ich habe nicht die Zeit, dieses Jahr Deutsch zu lernen" ist auch richtig!

    Has Tootoo been helpful today? :ahee:

    met "tee" bedoelde ik eigenlijk "tea" in het Engels!
    In andere worden, ik meende "tea" daar te schrijven
