Hi Tom,


Thank you for your suggestion!

👍

As for the song, among my friends it's usually the

English "Happy Birthday to you..."

I am not aware of a German song, sorry.

Hallo, I am a beginner. How about a Happy Birthday.... Alles Gut zum Geburtstag!

On that note :) ... is there a happy birthday song that Germans use when celebrating a birthday?

Thanks,

Tom

Die Aussprache ist zu schnell. Können wir eine langsamere Geschwindigkeit wählen?

Vielen Dank 😄

Hi Daniel,


Welcome to GermanPod101 and thank you for a

very good question.👍

"Ich heiße ..." can be translated to "My name is...",

but both can be used interchangeably, with a slight preference of

"Ich heiße ..." in a formal setting.


Thank you.


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


Kind regards,

Hallo, I am very new to German, learning a lot! I had a question, and the spelling is probably wrong so forgive me. Ich bin is what you used to describe "I am", however, in your podcast, you say Ich Heiser is how that is said. What is the difference?
