No, it's much better to face this kind of things with a sense of Gelassenheit and Rationalität!
"Diese Nacht ist so kalt doch sie öffnet die Tür und er küsst sie sieben Mal dafür" (c) Faun - Diese kalte Nacht
How do I pronounce "Tür"? My German friend always made fun of me because I just couldn't get it
Not a native but I think something like, "Tour" in a German accent would work.
Ü is pronounced basically like "oo" like "moo." So kinda like "Too-ah" and then always remember that R is in German is reflexive like in British English so R is pronounced a bit more like "ah" at the end of words.
You position your mouth to say 'u' ( like oo in 'book')and then you say 'i' (like ee in 'cheese') I hope this helps
sie öffneten die Tür. Sie(the formal 'you') and sie('they') have the same conjugation. "öffneten" is the past tense of sie öffnen (they open)
Here is a conjugator that i found. http://conjugator.reverso.net/conjugation-german-verb-%C3%B6ffnen.html
"to open up" is an English phrasal verb which, based on a quick search, translates into "erschließen", "sich öffnen" and other verbs.
Perhaps an advanced or native German speaker will see your question and respond.
Sie can mean She or They. I don't know how to tell the difference. Would someone please let me know?
look for the verb. 'sie öffnet'= 'she opens', while 'sie öffnen'='they open'. Also, 'sie ist'= 'she is'. while 'sie sind'= 'they are'
I was being hasty and wrote: "Sie ofnet die teuer" - and now I am really confused to why my answer is correct. It only told me to pay attention to umlauts... "She opens the expensive"?
What's wrong with "she opens the door"? That is how I usually translate the sentences (for quickness).
E.g: Er isst Pizza ---> he eats pizza (rather than "he is eating pizza") both of which make sense and always gets accepted either way. Can someone explain what is different about this sentence please?
