In German does saying you like someone have the romantic connotation as it does in English?
For example does "Du magst den Lehrer." also mean "He has a crush on the teacher" or is it simply "He thinks the teacher is good"?
i have the same question, can someone please answer us ?
I think most would understand it non-romantically, i.e. whether they can stand them at all or whether they think the teacher is a good person.
All right. But even though it is understood mostly not romantically, can it also be used in the "crush" meaning?
why "You like that teacher " is showing wrong, thanks
The is Der in Nominative (masculine) and Den in Accusative (masculine). Here the direct object is the teacher which means use of accusative den - den Lehrer.
Du bist Streber ;)
Streber is a noun, so I believe you need an indefinite article here: "Du bist ein Streber".
Hot for teacher, huh...
