German Conversational Phrases


I'm working on a large collection of useful conversational phrases for people who want more than just the usual basics. Of course this will be updated frequently, and once I get a job I can purchase a nice tts voice from acapela box to read the sentences. Enjoy!

Here are 10!

das ist Bescheuert — “that’s ridiculous”

na? — “so…?”

das ist mir Wurst — “what do I care?”

Ich besorge das Bier — “I’ll get the beer”

kein Schwein war da — “nobody was there”

der spinnt — “he’s nuts”

langsam langsam — “little by little”

das kannst du deiner Oma erzählen — “tell it to your Grandmother”

nul acht funfzehn (0-8-15) — “standard issue / mediocre”

Ich habe die Nase voll davon — “I’m sick of it”

Hope it helped!


At least please quote your source: https://matadornetwork.com/abroad/10-extraordinarily-german-phrases/

(I'd actually never say "langsam langsam" for little by little ("nach und nach" for me) but maybe that's a northern German thing)


I'd translate is as something like "Take it slow" (as in "Whooa!")...
