If I were to say "I am cold" would it be "Ich bin kalt" or "Ich habe kalt"? I know for I'm hungry it's "Ich habe Hunger", which is why I ask
"Ich bin kalt" means "I am a cold person".
"Mir ist kalt" means "I feel cold", or more literally "To me it is cold."
I wrote ketrank and kault and it still checked it as if it were the right answer. Is this just a glitch?
If you are close enough it will sometimes assume it was just a typo and give you credit. It should warn you about it, though.
Just don't forget that "t" at the end of "ist" or your whole sentence is discarded!
"Getränk" is a drink, a beverage or more simply everything that it is possible normally to drink. "Saft" is a juice; so it is to intend as a subcategory of beverage. Examples: beer=Getränk; coffe=Getränk; pear juice=Saft but also Getränk. Lemonade=Getränk if industrial but Saft (and of course Getränk also) if handy made with lemons. Etc. Well at start of this answer I wrote "normally"; and this because it is possible to drink for example a soup but this is not normally a "Getränk". English is not my native language so I tried to explane you the difference as better as in my possibility.
As far as my knowledge goes, Getrank is the German for drink while Saft is the German for juice.
what are the words for chilly and frosty? seems duo didn't like them for kalt.
So if I'm saying that a drink is cold I say "Es ist kalt"... but if i want to say that I'm cold (in matters of temperature) it is "mir ist kalt"... Can someone please explain why? thanks
To be clear so I understand fully, we don't use 'trink' because that is a verb while this is referring to a noun, thus the 'ge' and Getränk?
