I am currently looking up good things to us in discussions
are they right ?, and could you break each one down by word and explain why it is structured that way so that I know exactly what I am saying. :
Could you notify me of any easier sayings or contractions like "Mein name ist = Ich Heiße"
What time is it? Wie spät ist es?
Who what where when why how:
Wer Was (I knew this one) Wo Wann Warum Wie
What's your name:
Wie heißen Sie?
What do you mean by this word: Was meinst du mit diesem Wort? (Is their any shorter way of saying this)
Could you speak slower: Könnten Sie langsamer sprechen?
Please tell me if you know any more good ones
Hmm, I am sorry but are you trying to look for phrases? If you are, you could just buy a phase German book from your local book store or libary. You could also find youtubers that can give you the answers you need.
"What do you mean by this word: Was meinst du mit diesem Wort? (Is their any shorter way of saying this)"
If I understood your sentence "What do you mean by this word?" correctly and you want to express that you did not understand why this particular word was used in this context and thus you don't know what the other person wanted to say, you could also use: "Was willst du damit sagen?"
