Hi Stephen,

Thank you for your comment and question!

“Buchen” is commonly used when you book accommodation or a tour. “Organisieren” would be used if there was more to arrange/organise than just the accommodation. You would use it for parties, tournaments, events and so on.

Yes those examples are correct. “Fahren” is literally translated as “to drive”, however it is used for any kind of transportation on the ground, from bicycle to being in the passenger seat of a car/taxi, to taking the bus or train.

I hope this helps!

Vielen Dank!

Why are you using “buchen” instead of “organisieren” for “arrange?” Also, in the “5 more examples” of “fahren” are the translations all correct? It looks like the one using “are” should be with the sentence involving the word “sein”….but being a beginner I am just curious!
