"Wie bist du in mein Zimmer gekommen?"

Translation:How have you entered my room?

November 1, 2013



Why do we use the verb "sein" instead of "haben" here?

February 24, 2014


Words involving movement such as gelaufen oder gekommen use sein. Words that also include a change of state such as become or die also use sein

i have the same doubt. Please some of light and is not correct to say "how have you entered (to or in) my room"?

March 14, 2014


Give me break ; to "come to" and to "come into" my room are the same thing.

February 20, 2014


Not the same. Im comin' up to you works fine, but i cant come into you. Come into means more the entrence. You cant go in someone.

July 30, 2014


Generally they're not the same but I was talking about a specific example in which they do have the same meaning.

August 23, 2014


I'm a locksmith. And I'm a locksmith.

'How have you entered my room?' is not good English. How did you enter my room? or How did you get into my room? are better.

March 27, 2014


How have you entered ... my room? In,into? Something is missing

June 17, 2014


"Enter" already implies "in" or "into". It doesn't need a preposition.

That's what she said. Then I got arrested.

The word "gotten" is not appropriate for many english speakers outside north america. My answer was the correct UK english form, and needs to be acceptable.

September 19, 2014


I cant imagine the word gotten being used in this sense. The most probable reason it was refused is the lack of translation of gekommen - past participle of enter or arrive

July 28, 2018


Besides, as long as you understand it, it doesnt matter.

July 28, 2018


Why bist?

August 16, 2017


Can 'bist' and 'hast' be used interchangeably in the phrase above?

October 30, 2017


No. Only bist can be used with gekommen.

How have you entered in my room? need the preposition "in" to provide direction

August 4, 2018


I disagree. Entered provides the direction. It shouldn't be followed by a preposition but simply by what has been entered.

August 17, 2018


I agree with SimMoor. But "enter" would be a bit stilted.

how have you entered 'into' my room Why has'in' been left out of the translation?/?

January 30, 2019


Entered implies in. "How did you get into my room" and "how did you go into my room" do not show a direction and need the preposition. As they can get out/go out. Entered on the other hand always conveys someone going into something, just like how exit/leave conveys someone going out. It sounds irregular to me to say "entered into" unless you were being specific and stressing location. Say for example "Constable, the thief entered into the front room diner and not the bedroom."

How have you come to my room? -was marked wrong. Would it be correct if i had added "into"?

February 1, 2019


why is: how did you enter my room a wrong translation. Did is past tense!

May 9, 2019


Should it be "in meinem Zimmer" since "Zimmer" ist masculine? Don't nouns take the dative case when preceded by "in"?

July 5, 2019


"in" is followed by the accusative when there is movement involved such as in this case where someone has "come into my room".
