Hello Liumx,


If your question is part of a sentence, it is correct. For instance, if you said

"Ich weiss nicht, warum die Haiwoche früher beginnt." But of course, in this case

it isn't a question anymore. It means: I don't know why the shark week starts earlier.


If you want your sentence to be a proper question, you would say:

"Warum beginnt die Haiwoche früher?"😉


Thank you.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Hi Linda,


That is a valid question, and in fact, a lot of people actually use

the expression "Grosser Weisser Hai" too.

Both are correct, I guess, and it depends on everyone's personal preference.


Thank you.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Hi Scott,


Wow, that sounds pretty scary. I guess a quick swim before

Hello Joe B.,


It means "I did spend my time/holidays/weekend etc. doing...".

Let me give you an example:


Ich habe meine Ferien damit verbracht, Schmetterlinge zu sammeln.

I spent my holidays collecting butterflies.


You could also say something like:

Ich habe das ganze Wochenende damit verbracht, meine Garage aufzuräumen.

I spent the whole weekend tidying up my garage.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Thank you.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

Hi Joe,


It is nice to see that other people think about the fate and welfare of

sharks, and supposedly other animals, too.

Many people are afraid of sharks and think they are dangerous and bad,

but in fact, they are very important for our oceans.

Maybe you can think of a way to help "dem Hai"?


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Thank you.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

Hi Alfavector,


It is the second question that is correct:


"Warum jagen die Haie in seichtem Wasser nach Nahrung/Essen?"

And "Nahrung" is better than "Essen". Essen (as a noun) is generally used

with humans.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Thank you.
