"Kommt sie um fünf nach Hause?"

Translation:Does she come home at five o'clock?

December 31, 2012



"Does she come home at five?" should also work. The original sentence is not "Kommt sie um fuenf Uhr nach Hause."

It does now

I agree

I agree too.

"She comes home at five?" should work too.

So if "um" stands for "at" this time, how do I say: "she comes AROUND five"?

Is following word order correct? Kommt sie nach Haus um fünf

February 2, 2017


Seems like it, but I'm not sure though

Why not "Is she coming to the house around 5 o' clock" accepted? Not really sure I am seeing much of a difference in this sentence when "Does vs Is" is used.

"Get home" ought also to be accepted. I have noticed that less English regional variations at these levels are being accepted, may be because so manz fewer people have got this far.

It is now accepted. Duo suggested, "Does she get home at five?"

September 18, 2018


"Does she come home at 5?" was not accepted.

Apparently because I didn't spell out the word five. Which is a strange demand for English specificity considering we are not nitpicking English here, but are supposed to be learning German.

I have read the comments below; to me 'does she come home at 5' asks if she regularly comes home at 5. What about 'will she come home at 5?' which suggests, will she be coming home [today] at 5.

Will she be coming home (today) at 5? = Wird sie (heute) um 5 Uhr nach Hause kommen?

The future is build up with the auxiliary verb “werden”. It takes the place of the main verb and the main verb is put at the end of the sentence.

"Werden" is a irregular verb: ich werde / du wirst / er wird / wir werden / ihr werdet / sie werden

In der Schule muss man immer TE KA MO LO (temporal, kausal, modal, lokal) benutzen. Wir sind zwar nicht in der Schule, aber trotzdem... :-)

OMG why is nach both 'to' and 'after'?

Try explaining English prepositions to a non native speaker - it's a pain.

I was reading this as an imperative: (You) come home at five! Could it be interpreted this way or how would my imperative statement be worded differently?

May 14, 2018


"Kommt sie um fünf nach Hause?" is a question about a person not present (she), or at least not actively being addressed. I think the imperative would be something like, "Kommst du um fünf nach Hause," but I'm also learning, could be completely wrong.

September 18, 2018


Can i say[ kommt sie nach Hause um fünf?]?

May 25, 2018


Does she come home at 5 o'clock? Should also be accepted.

August 1, 2018


I find this speech quite fast, or is it how Germans speak German?

November 25, 2018


Why is "she is coming to the house at 5" wrong? I thought home would be 'zu Hause'

March 5, 2019


'She comes home about five' didn't work.

May 14, 2013


Interesting: um can mean around but only in a physical sense, not as in around a certain time or an approximation (around 500ml). with time um means at, so at five o'clock = um fünf Uhr

May 14, 2013


So, just to ask, how would one actually say (as simply as possible) She comes home around five?
