Translation says: the visitor. isn't "Gast" used the same way as "guest" in English?
One invites a Guest to an event, for example, while a Visitor arrives usually in an impromptu manner
Since both Gast and Besucher can mean visitor, does anyone have any usage notes to share that would help us determine when to use which word to mean "visitor"?
So do you always say Der Gast regardless of gender, or could you say die Gast for women, der Gast for men and das Gast if you don't know or don't want to disclose the gender of the visitor?
Huh. Google translates der Gast as "the host." Seeing as this is essentially the opposite of the guest, can I assume this is incorrect?
I don't know whether it's true or not that the guest is your friend, but the sentence is not correct because Freundin is feminine and so it should be meine Freundin, not mein Freundin. (And Gast, Freundin must be capitalised.)
“Sein unser Gast, sein unser Gast" that is how the beauty and the beast song should have sounded in german
Wouldn't the imperative form of the verb sein be more grammatically accurate? "Seid unser Gast, seid unser Gast!"?
seid! is plural imperative; since Beauty is just one person, it would be singular sei!.
The song was in fact translated as Sei hier Gast!.
"Ich habe ein Gast bei mir zu Hause." I have a guest at my house. Is this sentence correct? I'm not sure about the phrase: "at my house" . . . and also, would a person use "ein"?
