Hi Ayesha,


Thank you for your feedback.


You are right in that the literal translation is "good day".👍

And if you say "Guten Tag" to anyone after around 10 a.m.,

they will not be surprised.

But strictly speaking does the morning last till 12:00 o'clock, and

to make it easier for our learners to distiguish the various greetings,

we suggest it this way. It is not written in stone though. Germany can be

quite diverse in some ways. 😉


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


Kind regards,

Reinhard

Hallo Marilyn,


Danke schön for your feedback!

Please note that our lessons are organized in lesson series. One such series makes up a whole unit in which the lessons build upon each other. Our vocabulary lists, just like this one, are organized around concepts and are totally independent of each other. These lists have the sole aim to extend our students' vocabulary and make it easier for them to find topics they are more interested in and learn the relevant vocabulary for that particular topic.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Levente

Hi Thomas,


Thank you for your suggestions!👍


I will forward your message to our team. Maybe we could come up

with a lesson focussing on people just getting off a plane?


Meanwhile, have a look at our great search function at the top of the page

(magnifying glass). You can enter individual words, phrases or even whole sentences

and it will give you a list of lessons that covered issues related to your search. For instance,

I just entered part of one of your sentences below, "How do I get to...".

One of the lessons that came up was:

I hope this helps.

Hi.


Maybe a key phrase "questions" list would be helpful? (and then some possible type of answer?)


As for me, being a relative beginner at learning German, I have many questions and these do not just relate to the language learning but for when you meet German speaking people.... ie


Where is the nearest restaurant?

How do I get to Berlin from here?

Who is that singer?

How long have you been living here?

So, where did you meet?

Which football team do you support?

What is showing currently at the movies?
