Lingot game!

Okay. Translate a sentence, and I will give you a number of lingots for every sentence. Be sure to tell me which question it was (Ex: Beginner 2= How are you) and if your playing it is in Spanish. Ps, this was partly EricaHarley's idea.

ONE LANGUAGE ONLY PLEEEAAASE!!!

Beginner-1 lingot: What is your name? How are you? Good morning.

Intermediate-2 lingots: I like your shirt. Tomorrow is Friday. He who waits exasperates.

Not So Advanced-3 lingots: I have your desk. What is your specialty? The commander speaks with the colonel.

My apologies if I don't get to you soon. Gooooooood luck!!!! (BTW, tell me on my stream. NO CHEATING!!!!!)

Japanese:
Beginner (all; respectively): お名前は何ですか。お元気ですか。おはようございます。
romaji: onamae wa nandesuka? ogenki desuka? ohayou gozaimasu.
("ogenki desuka" literally means "how is your health?" That's how Japanese say "how are you?" but this phrase is only used if you haven't seen the person for maybe about a month or so. Another phrase for "how are you" is どうですか (dou desuka?) which is informal)

Intermediate (first two): シャツが好きです。明日は金曜日です。
romaji: shatsu ga suki desu. ashita wa kinyoubi desu.

Not so advanced (the first one): あなたの机を持っています。
romaji: anata no tsukue o motteimasu.

German:
Beginner (the last two): wie gehts? guten morgen.

btw, no need to give me lingots :)

"Demain nous sommes vendredi" literally means "tomorrow we are friday", but for some reason that's how the French say "tomorrow is friday". I never understood why they say it that way, but that's what Duolingo says they do. :)

Because you put a # at the beginning of a line. That's how you start a header line :)

So put a space in front of it so that the # isn't the first thing on the line.

Number 1 is "I have my table" rather than "I have your table", as far as I know.

(Since "svoy" refers to the subject - I have mine, you have yours, he has his)
