Hi Christine,


Thank you for some good questions!๐Ÿ‘

I am sure you are not the only one wondering.


"weit" can mean "weit entfernt", but it can be used in a

different context too and can take on meanings as varied as

wide, large, broad, vast...

"weit entfernt" really only refers to distance.



The same, in a way, applies to "nรคchste" versus "neben". They can refer to the

same thing, but "neben" is much more specific, only refering to something "beside".

"nรคchste" on the other hand can also mean close, near, contiguous. Take for example

"Der Nรคchste, bitte.", when you are called into the consultation room at the doctor's.


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


Kind regards,

Reinhard

Ich habe zwei Frage, bitte:


(1) Do "weit" and "weit entfernt" mean basically the same thing (as in English "far" and "far away")? Or is there a nuance I am missing?

(2) Do "nachste" and "neben" mean basically the same thing?


Danke!

Hi Saeed,


Thank you for your post! A full English to German dictionary is currently not available in our course but you can find example sentence(s) for each word in the vocabulary list so you will have an idea on how the word is used in a general sentence. If the example sentence(s) is/are available for a word, you will see the numbers of example on the right corner of each word. For example: the word "Seite" has 3 example sentences in both German and English as following:


"Die Seiten dieses Buches sind total verklebt.

The pages of this book are sticking together really hard.


Es gibt immer zwei Seiten.

There are always two sides.


Du musst auf der rechten Seite fahren.

You have to drive on the right side."


Does this help? Let us know if you have any other questions!


Cheers,


Khanh

Does your language course also include a dictionary English to German where one can see also use of the word in a sentence ?
