Hello J Laurence Ransom MD,
Thank you very much for your comment!😄
“Kennst du Deutsch?” does not make sense in German, since “kennen” is used when you talk about persons. For example “Kennst du Paul?” which means “Do you know Paul?”. “Verzeihung” can be used instead of “Entschuldigung”. I hope this helps!
Have a great weekend!
Can one not say: Kennst du Deutsch or Verzeihung
Thank you very much for your comment! 😄

There are many variations for the question “Would you like a bag”. Most common ones would be “Suchen Sie nach einer Tasche?” or “Möchten Sie eine Tasche?”. A correct response would be “Ja, bitte” or “Nein danke, ich schaue mich nur um” which stands for “No thanks, I am just looking around”. The term “Gerne” sounds a bit unnatural in this situation.
I hope this helps! Have a good weekend! 😄
I live in Switzerland where the spoken language is Swiss German but the “official” language is High German - it can be confusing. . .
When I check out at a store the clerk always asks if I want a bag. I can’t make out what they are (or would be saying) exactly in High German. What is the question for: “Would you like a bag?”
I’m told my response should be “gerne” . . . is this correct? I’ve been saying “Bitte” please.
Thanks for adding this expression. It is not listed as it can´t be count as a key phrase in daily life though it is a important expression one should know. Leben und leben lassen emphasizes on the importance of freedom on human actions as well as intend to deny too many regulations made by people o by the government. It is important to let things be how they are naturally without interfering.
I hope this helps.
