Thank you for your excellent explanation as to why Germans no longer use the word “fressen.” Our German friends here in California and Mexico are very old like me and that explains why they still use “fressen.” I would like to add that I am enjoying my studies with Germanpod101 and am surprised at how much I have already learned, especially since I am studying with Spanishpod101 and Frenchpod101 at the same.

Hello Gloria,


I like your question. It touches on the fact of a constantly changing

society and language, I think.

Many years ago people used to say "Der Mensch isst und das Tier frisst."

I don't hear anyone say that nowadays anymore. I think it is because our attitude

towards animals has changed in recent years. "fressen" is a very derogatory expression when

you want to describe the act of taking in food.


Thank you.


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


Kind regards,

Reinhard

In the Vocabulary sentences you have “Die Maus isst eine Traube.” I thought that people essen their food but animals fressen their food. So if that is the case, would it not be “Die Maus frisst eine Traube.”?

Hi, Team !

I believe your new graphics present a

fresh, interesting change.

I also notice the loan words from English ( That'll make it a little easier to remember the vocab. )

Certainly, it's helpful to learn the terms in our high tech world !

♥ 👌 😎

@prreid

Das Kabel, die Kabel. Hier ist ja die Mehrzahl (wires) gemeint

Wobei es mehr deutsche Wörter gibt, als der durschnittsdeutsche kennt.

Computer zum Beispiel ist Rechner (kommt ja eben auch von to compute = berechnen). Monitor = Bildschirm

Und beim Inetrnet, sagt man machmal auch nur Das Netz (Ich gehe ins Netz, Ich bin im Netz)


@vanessa

Wir haben alle die Kabel dafür, weil wir unsere Internetanbindung brauchen. => Wir haben alle Kabel dafür, weil wir unsere Internetanbindung brauchen.

You alrteady have alle no need for die

"Der Drucker ist auch oft kaput." => Der Drucker ist auch oft kaputt (double tt since it's a short u))

"Zum Glück gehen die Mäuser und die Tastaturen immer gut." => Zum Glück funktionieren die Mäuse und Tasterturen immer gut." (you can use gehen hier, I just want to offer you an alternative to what you wrote). It's one Maus but two Mäuse. No r.


"Wenn sie kaput sind, kann man nichts machen!" kaputt s.o. (siehe oben=see above)


"Wir haben auch guten Lautsprecher, damit wir können Musik hören". => "Wir haben auch gute Lautsprecher, damit wir auch Musik hren können." If you can do something, können has to be always at the end.

Ja, aber wann hat man nur ein Kabel? Wir haben Kabel überall.

Es war interessant zu sehen und zu lesen wie viele deutsche Compurterwoerter eingedeutscht worden sind; aber man braucht EIN Kabel, nicht EINE Kabel. Wenn man mehr als ein Kabel hat, dann hat er (zwei oder mehr) Kabel.
