As I'm trying to teach myself some German, I'm getting hung up with not using certain verbs correctly and it's only briefly explained with the software I'm using.




With the words "m?chte" and "m?chten." I was trying to find a pattern and I'm just not. When is the correct time to use each word?

Figured this would be better than just filling up the random thoughts thread.:)

Most verbs conjugate the same way. "I" verbs end in "e", and we verbs end in "en". He/she/they tends to be also "en" if I remember right...I haven't actually spoken any since 1996 when I was in Germany for a month...and what I had was only 1.5 years in rural American public high school German classes...

Joe's right on the money, singular vs plural form. For completeness,

Ich m?chte
Du m?chtest
Er/Sie/Es m?chte
Wir m?chten
Ihr m?chtet
Sie m?chten


...you call that complete? That's complete...

Every single German sentence translates to 'invade Poland'

Guys, how can a foreigner know about that? We're not secretive enough about that matter and that we already have plans laid out and that the date is certain...


What? Oh, never mind...

For the life of me, I cannot pronounce "Orangensaft." I know what it is, and what it would be if someone said it but damn, I cannot say it right... Most the throaty words I'm struggling so far but that one's the worst.

On the upside, I can now introduce myself and go to a restaurant and survive.

Listen to some Rammstein and sing along, you'll be saying those "R"s in no time. :p :lol:

I really should re-learn german, had it in school for a total of 6 years but that's 15 years ago (fuck am I that old) I can read german alright and somewhat understand it, unless it's spoken with a weird accent or really fast, but I can't speak more than 3-4 word simple sentences.
