I read that the English, "I'm late," cannot be translated into German literally as, "Ich bin spät." Germans don't say that. You have to say, "Ich bin verspätet." Is that correct?
You can say: Ich bin spät dran. Ich verspäte mich.
Exactly! I agree with your comment - have a lingo!
I thought it was supposed to be, "Ich habe Verspätung".
Doesn't "ich bin spaet" mean "I am late" as in "I am dead"? Shouldn't it be "Ich habe eine verspaetung"?
