Is this sentence structured correctly?
Alright so I'm trying to saying "I like learning German," is this correct: Ich lerne gern Deutsch.
That is correct =)
You could also say "Ich lerne Deutsch gern(e)." or (I am quite sure, somebody please correct me if I'm wrong) "Ich lerne gerne Deutsch."
Keep up the good work! Viel Glück!
Ich lerne Deutsch gern(e) sounds a little off to me, personally.
Perhaps if you were talking about German and the listener knew that you were learning it but wondered what feelings you had about it, so you say, I like learning German, making the "gerne" the important part of the sentence by putting it at the end.
Ich lerne gern(e) Deutsch seems a more neutral phrasing to me.
That's what I thought. Thanks for clarifying that. Whenever I say I like something, I usually put the gern(e) before the word. Vielen Dank!
Learn that The verb is in second position in a typical German sentence.
Gestern fuhr ich mit der Tramway, Richtung Favoriten. (Wolfgang Ambros)
We would say...Yesterday, I rode the (Tram/trolley) toward Favoriten.
You will be tempted to follow our pattern...and may even add punctuation. It will be wrong and is not said way.
Dann wach' ich auf in der Kinetten, wo ich schlafe. (Ambros)
. . .then wake I up, in the shack, where I sleep.
Every other day I work out. Jeden zweiten Tag trainiere ich.
If you are just starting, mastering verb in second position with a verb that agrees in number with the subject is a good challenge.
Danke vielmals ;) I kind of had a feeling "Danke viel" was wrong; because I think "viel" means "much [of]," or "a lot [of]."
I see Tuman88 already corrected you. I would like to let you know that you can also say 'Danke sehr.'
Really? Sounds weird [in English] to say "Thanks very." Anyways, thanks for the correction and suggestion :)
Very, very true...The idioms lessons confused me so much because I was thinking of the literal translations from German to English.
