POST
Eric: Listen again to Franziska's post.
Clara: So viele Erinnerungen!
Eric: "So many memories!"
Clara: (SLOW) So viele Erinnerungen! (Regular) So viele Erinnerungen!
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "so many."
Clara: so viele
Eric: is a casual remark, it can be used whenever you unexpectedly find many of the same things in one place. Listen again- "so many" is...
Clara: (SLOW) so viele (REGULAR) so viele
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "memories."
Clara: Erinnerungen
Eric: It is quite common to use a short expression like "so many memories", not a full sentence such as "I have so many memories" or "this brings up so many memories" and to allude to something without going into detail, only for friends to pick up on what you are trying to say. Listen again- "memories" is...
Clara: (SLOW) Erinnerungen (REGULAR) Erinnerungen
Eric: All together, "So many memories!"
Clara: So viele Erinnerungen!

Eric: In response, Franziska's friends leave some comments.
Eric: Her nephew, Mario, uses an expression meaning - "Did they used to play something like that back in the day?"
Clara: (SLOW) Spielte man so was damals? (REGULAR) Spielte man so was damals?

Clara: Spielte man so was damals?
Eric: Use this expression to show you are feeling cynical.
Eric: Her supervisor, Andreas, uses an expression meaning - "A very nice song!"
Clara: (SLOW) Ein sehr schönes Lied! (REGULAR) Ein sehr schönes Lied!
[Pause]
Clara: Ein sehr schönes Lied!
Eric: Use this expression to be positive.
Eric: Her high school friend, Lisa, uses an expression meaning - "Haha yes I remember!"
Clara: (SLOW) Hihi ja ich erinnere mich! (REGULAR) Hihi ja ich erinnere mich!
[Pause]
Clara: Hihi ja ich erinnere mich!
Eric: Use this expression to be funny.
Eric: Her neighbor, Tanja, uses an expression meaning - "I will listen to it in a moment."

Hi Тарык,


Thank you for your feedback.

Please allow me to make a few tiny little changes:

An das erinnere ich mich. So was spielte man damals. Ich würde es mir gerne noch einmal anhören.


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


Kind regards,
