"I am thirsty; I need water!"
Translation:Ich habe Durst, ich brauche Wasser!
When I did this question, I was given three different options, both of the wrong ones of which used the phrase "Ich bin durstig" instead of "Ich habe Durst". Is the phrase "Ich bin durstig" grammatically correct, and can it be used in the same context as "Ich habe Durst"?. Why or why not?
Ich habe Durst and ich bin durstig mean exactly the same thing and can be used interchangeably (as can Ich habe Hunger and ich bin hungrig, By the way). While anecdotal, I may as well point out that I've never heard a German say "ich bin durstig", I've only ever seen it mentioned on learner forums. The only German I've ever asked about "ich bin durstig" said it sounded more formal to him and wouldn't be common in everyday conversation.
