Nee, ich denke die Tasse ist fast leer! ;-)

What's the difference between "nahezu" and "fast"?

An alternate definition of "fast" given here is "chamfer". What?

The reading of "fast" makes it sound like an F instead of a V sound... Should it sound more like "vast?"

No, it's supposed to sound like an English "f". The German "f" never sounds like an English "v".

Thanks Christian. That make sense, I guess I was thinking about W's sounding like V's. I should drink my coffee before studying German.

You were right, it's just the other way around. The German v's sound like English f's :)

I've been learning english for 20 years now, and W and V still sound the same to me

Why "the cup is more full" is wrong???
