Hello Elianne,

Thank you for posting!
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! 😄

Cheers,

Hello!

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.

Hi Jim,

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.

Cheers,
