Hi Mustafa,


Thank you for a good question.👍

Other users are probably wondering the same thing.


"Ich bin..." would roughly translate to "I am ..." (ex.: I am Mustafa.)

"Ich heiße..." on the other hand means "My name is..." (My name is Mustafa.)


The first expression you can use for other things as well:

Ich bin aus Deutschland.

Ich bin Türke. Ich bin 25 Jahre alt. Ich bin krank. Ich bin glücklich.


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


Kind regards,

Reinhard
