Obi wan, why didn't you tell me ?
Shouldn't it be Sie sind mein Onkel? We should use formal you with elders right?
you can say Sie sind as well. Du bist would be less formal than Sie sind.
Don't do it uncle John! Please!
Yeah.. I think that much I know
Would native Germans actually use the "familiar" form Du rather than Sie when speaking to an uncle?
Would native Germans (living in Germany) typically use the familiar form "Du" instead of "Sie" when speaking with an uncle?
Does anyone else notice this? When I play the sound in normal (aka fast) mode, the "d" in "du" seems to get chopped off.
Could someone explain to me when I can use "mein" or "meine" properly
it should be "Du bist meinen Onkel" right?. Akkusativ?
No, it's nominative. So, "mein", not "meinen".
My previous question was to translate "Mein Onkel ist klein."
And then Duo came up with this sentence.
Onkel: Sag mir, wer ist dein papa?
