"Ich mag Brot."

January 27, 2013


Does that mean moegen is the verb for both To Like and To Want?

No. The verb 'wollen' means to want. Mögen means to like. And the conditional form is 'möchten' which means would like. So 'ich will' means I want, and 'ich möchte' means I'd like.

zyron, this is good info...but could you explain when you would say "i want" because germans (seem) to not be so direct

you'd use ich möchte --> i would like the same as the french je voudrais

So, I though it was Ich Mogt Brot for "I like Bread."(I thought Mogt was like and mag is likes?)

And I thought its "mage" not "mag"
