What's that smell from under the dishwasher? Oh god, ich finde die alte Tomate.
Another highly relevant phrase... Ich finde immer nur die alten Tomaten!
Of course you can only find the old tomatoes. The fresh ones don't smell.
Wo ist die junge Tomate?
Auf eine tomate Pflanze
when i read the sentence i imagined that a guy hid a tomato somewhere in his roomate's room and it took him a while to bump into it.
This isn't highly related to the question, but can finden be used as an opinion-forming word? As in "Ich finde die Suppe sehr salzig." - "I find the soup very salty."
I feel like I may have heard this usage before but I'm not sure.
Yes, that's true. It's more stating an opinion than forming it, like "ich finde, das steht dir nicht" - "it's my opinion/I think this doesn't suit you".
Thanks so much. Ich finde dich sehr hilfreich :)
Genau! In the lessons on flirting (had to be purchased with lingots around Valentines Day) die Eule taught such things as:
* Ich finde dich suß, und
* Ich finde dich schön
"You mean an ultimatum?"
"I'm pretty sure it's an old tomato. You know, what do you do, eat it or you throw it away?"
I've never even assembled these words together in English
Und dann gibt er seinem Sohn die alte Tomate, und der Sohn benutzt sie für einen Wissenschaft-Projekt.
How old is the old tomato
What would be the German word for found? Wouldn't that better suit this sentenance?
Oder "er hat...gefunden." This structure is used most frequently in the South of Germany. But "fand" is used frequently in literature.
Ah, old tomato, y'old chap. Good to see you again.
Und es ist widerlich.
Er findet die (((alter))) Tomate.
that's what I have heard !!!!!
Not so much a question, but I do find it hard to distinguish between how some of the speakers say Er and Ihr in Duo
In the listening exercise how do I know it's not "Erfindet die alte Tomate!" as in "(You) invent the old tomato!" ?
