How do you say 'embarrassing' in German?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fluttershy937702

“peinlich” i have to admit i had no clue sorry :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AdelleHiebert

Thanks. Don't worry if you can't say it. My friend said it to me the other day, and so I was just making sure that that is the right word :)

How do you say 'A-men!' in german?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fluttershy937702

“Amen” so theres really no difference between english and german on this one but you pronounce it “Ah-men” instead of “A-men”

Thanks so much! I have realized with German that some English and German words are actually quite similar. :)

How doy you say "it's your turn" ? /Sorry my English is not the best :( /


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fluttershy937702

“du bist dran” thats ok! :)

Thanks! May I ask another two expressions? "it is not my business" and "mind your own business"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fluttershy937702

“mind your own business” is “was geht dich das an” and “it is not my business” is “es geht much nichts an” just so you know i did look these up but just to confirm that i was right! :)

Thanks again! :) I think I asked a lot, so "Andere kommen" however may be one last question: How do you say "more or less" in German? :)
