I lived in Berlin for 9 months, once upon a time.

The thing is, German is very easy, to start with. When you are beginning, it feels like English-with-an-accent. It QUICKLY gets hard. The abstract words (adverbs and adjectives) get VERY abstract VERY fast. This tome that satishvc has put forward is extremely helpful. Thank you.

Are you saying Thanks, it looks like a good resource or Thanks, it seems like a good resource?

Could it be both based on interpretation?

case02 - I was was trying to say that it looked like a good resource. But sweilan1 corrected me.

Susan, you made no error. Case02 - asked if it meant "it appears" or "it looks like". Scheinen - to appear, "aussehen" - looks like.

Also sorry, aber... dein Satz hört sich eher nicht sehr muttersprachlich an. Ich finde die Version von slamRN absolut gut und nicht falsch.

The best way should be: "Es scheint eine gute Ressource zu sein"

I agree. I would have put it exactly as Susan did.

But one of Case's translations into English translation was incorrect.

Sollte man nicht "aus" vor "wie" schreiben?

"aus" anstatt "wie"?

Nein. "wie" ist richtig.

Vielen Dank! The exercises in the back are very nice and to the point. #14 in the first set was eye-opening for me - I got it wrong at first because I didn't pay attention to the articles. If anyone is unsure what the dative is good for, here is a neat example!

The explanation of the passive voice is very good. I have always struggled with this in the past and found this so easy to understand. Vielen dank für deine Hilfe.
