Duo, how scandalous!

Yesterday I was practicing, and then this sentence came up... "Ich trage nichts." Translation: "I am not wearing anything."

Oh dear

What else is she going to say to the caterer for her husband's surprise birthday party?

    I think that they put these strange sentences in to test if you really translate correctly.

    The idea behind this is that you learn better when it is coupled with emotions. A dull environment is prone to make you forget things, while an environment filled with emotion will help memorize things.

    I would think so, having already encountered a green bear reading a newspaper… ;)

      Though not green, in German there' s also a bear who drinks beer.

      I would love some more crazy funny sentences and rated R course material. What fun.

      Where is your mind? Maybe it was just in response to "Trägst du den Koffer?" (:-)
