    Red face Let's talk Deutsch~

    Hello Leafre, I am currently taking German in college and I thought it would be cool to tell you guys about simple things sure as saying hi or asking how people are. Or just explaining why German is so long and weird looking. For future knowledge, German mostly sounds just as it's spelled. Only a few sounds are different, such die making 'de' sound or sie making a 'ze' one. Ch is either soft (normal ch sound) or hard (the guttural one that you think of when imagining German when sounding harsh). The ch sounds cannot be determined unless you've heard the word sadly.

    Anyway, I leave you with a few greetings and how to ask how someone is in German this time. I'll post again, answering any question and with more words and phrases.

    Hi - Hi (informal, friends and family)
    Hallo - Hello/Hi (informal, friends and family)
    Guten Morgen - Good Morning (Up to 10 AM)
    Guten Tag - Good Afternoon (10 AM - 5 PM)
    Guten Abend - Good Evening (5 PM up till good morning would be appropriate)
    Gute Nacht - Good Night (Before going to bed)
    Gr dich - Hello/Hi (informal)

    All three questions below are asking 'How are you?' and are informal (between friends)
    Wie geht es dir?
    Wie geht's dir?
    Wie geht's?

    Last minute tip - is just 'ss'. It seriously is just a letter for two s together. And it doesn't have to be used, but it is. It is an odd letter in German.
    Have a wonderful night, and feel free to ask any questions and I'll try to answer them as soon as I can. And next time, we can discuss how to answer the question asked.
