That's great that you're learning German and that you're so excited about it! However, the correct version of the sentence would be "Ich bin eine Frau." It is important to remember to capitalize nouns in German. Of course, you'll learn all that later on. Happy learning!!

I know, sorry about that.

No, you don't need to apologize! Everybody makes mistakes when they start out. Even the experts will make a mistake here and there. I'll let you in on a little secret: I used to make lots of mistakes too, and I still make them rather often!

Guys, guys, no need to post the same correction five times! She gets it already, I'm sure. Congrats for learning some German, Selena! Everybody makes mistakes in the beginning, but in a month or two you'll be like "Who's that girl that posted that mistake? Pssh I'd never do that now!"

It's very good to make mistakes in the beginning, and very good when people take the time to help you out and explain why it doesn't work that way. Keep up the good work!

Es ist: Wie geht es dir? "wie" means "how", whereas "wir" means "we".

Your verbs should never be capitalised, unless of course they begin the sentence. Only the nouns get capitalised in the German language. So, you would write: Ich weiß es nicht.
