"ein" = a/an, one (when in front of a noun)
"eins" = one (when counting)
while meaning "two", as i know, german speaking people say "Zwo" instead of "Zwei" to make it distinguishable, e.x. in the phone conversation. Correct me please if i am mistaken.
You are correct, but the difference between ein and eins is really important and not really negotiable in any area.
Germany has different areas, kinda like states, and everyone has a different accent as well as pronunciation, for example, Ich sounds like Ish in some places.
Do you know why sechs is afraid of sieben? Because sieben acht neun.
— from the kind of things you shouldn’t not translate.
"Vier" sounds like "Fier"... In German pronunciation, the "v" always sounds like "f", right?
Until this lesson on Duolingo, I had never been so thankful for the song "Numbers" by Kraftwerk in my life.
Eins, zwei Polizei Drei, vier Grenadier Fünf, sechs alte Hex Sieben, acht Gute Nacht
interesting that when it comes to numbers one is eins instead of ein like ein hund or something like that
Just like in English you use a/an instead of one the only difference is that in German you cannot use both interchangeably before a noun.
Also, in English you can only count with one just like in German that you can only count with eins. You cannot say "a, two, three...". You say "one, two, three...", "eins, zwei, drei...".
I wrote 1,2,3,4 without spaces in between and it told me I was wrong and that I had a typo. Don't forget those spaces!
