Ich auch* (In German, you use the Nominative for this, so it's like saying "I also".)
I'd rather say "mich auch" (who does it make feel schön? - mich).
/I don't know what's going on with the downvotes, but not a single German would reply "ich auch" if someone says something like "Das gibt mir ein gutes Gefühl" (what would be kind of an appropriate translation for the sentence above).
I (subject) do something. - Ich (subject) auch. (correct)
It makes me (object) feel good. - Ich (subject) auch. (wrong)
I didn't even have to bother to spend 30 things on how to flirt in German, this excercise has better compliments XD
If I look at your pic, I really understand how happy you are hearing that from Duolingo. :)
Because they believe Duolingo told them they were perfect. Stupid, isn't it?
Why thanks. *flips hair while surrounded by confidence aura I notice I'm perfect too.
This is why i love Dualingo, the comments dive into the heart of the language and bring out its soul. The meaning of a phrase is great but the cogs of this system to keep meanings current is phenomenal. Bravo.
Ich bin immer durcheinander. Ich habe mich vertippt und schrieb "perfekt" statt "perfect".
Miriam said: I am always confused. I made a typo and wrote "perfekt" instead of "perfect" [on the translate to English question].
Lito said: Me too, and it said it is correct.
Hope this helps :)
Du is singular, Ihr is plural. Someone from Texas (like me) would translate Ihr as Y'all. However, I have learned from experience that this is a good way to start the "Texans are all cowboys" discussion. Not pleasant. ;)
I usually translate ihr as "you all" except when it's obvious from context, like in "You are men" ("you" can only be plural here). It's an accurate translation while not sounding too Southern. And if the ihr is particularly informal, then I get to use "y'all" as an extra layer!
"Bist" and "Sind" are both conjugations of the verb "sein", meaning "is". The former would be for INFORMAL 'you' and the latter for 'we', 'they,' and FORMAL 'you'.
You just have to learn them by heart. Though there are usually rules, "sein" is an exception. Search if you want to find out the conjugations.
That means the same as "Du bist perfekt", whenever "Sie" refers to the one you are speaking to. I would say "du bist" only to a friend or to a child. To all others I would say: "Sie sind". To two ore more people I could say: "Sie alle sind perfekt." But would I really say that? If "Sie" is the first word in a sentence it also could mean they, because then "sie" is also written with a capital S. "Sie sind perfekt" could also mean: the games are perfekt or the holidays are perfekt or some other things.
Wait, so "Bist" is the same as "Sind"? It's the same in english but it's hard to know the difference in german.
It is not difficult. To one friend I say: du bist; to two or more: ihr seid; to to my doctor: Sie sind (perfekt).
hmm, "Sie sind" is formal. You use "ihr" when talking to more than one person and "du" when talking to only one person. It's like the difference between "we" and "I": one for a group, another for a single person.
Is there a way to combine Ich and bin into one single word? Like how I and am are combined in English to form I'm?
Alas, no. All kinds of words you wouldn’t expect can be contracted or combined in German, but not subjects with their verbs... so ist das Leben.
Aww thanks. makes me feel better about myself after getting 3 questions in a row wrong.
duolingo said it kind of like "obst perfect" so i just guessed cuz i knew that wasn't right
Thanks doulingo you and megon trainor both said soo (see all about that bass 0_0)
If I am talking to my parents I say: ihr seid (noch nicht) alt; if I am talking to my father or my mother I say: du bist noch nicht alt. To my doctor I say: Sie sind.
There are to many rules duolango. It is weird, right? Why would duo call me pefekt when i am no where near that? The only things i am good at is being is playing the alto sax, being weird, and being positive.
Duolingo really needs to let us have 'favorite' sentences that can be easily found instead of going back and redoing a lesson. Like this one :)
