    Hallo Georgia.
    Wie heißt du wirklich?:p

    'Mein Zimmer. 'e' at the end usually happens to things that are of female grammatical gender...
    Also, in German you have to capitalise all nouns.

    Ich bin auf der Arbeit. (I am at work)


    I only try to teach myself Mando; much easier because it doesn't exist and you more or less make your won rules...

    Do you mean you're bad at something, or you feel sick, Georgia?:confused:


    Hall ihr zwei.
    Was macht ihr so?
    (What are you doing?)

    What? Wie Geht's doesn't mean: "how are you?" That's what I was taught.


    How do you saw: "WE are so screwed.." in German?

    I was referring to the post above that.
    You're correct about 'Wie geht's'

    I am bad at cussing in German.:oops:
    If you mean 'we're done for' (?) I'd go with 'Wir sind geliefert'

    Okay, how about: Hier ist es langweilig. (It's boring here)
    Niemand ist je da. (Nobody is ever online)

    How would I say, "I don't speak much German?"

    or "it is very hot outside"?

    That's an 'esszett' you can also write a double 's' if you don'thave the letter. 'heiss' -> hot
    It stands for a sharp 's' souns as in 'class' and was a combination of the letters 's' (ess) and 'z' (zett). Thus the name...
