When you learn vocabulary it helps if there is a straight translation. For example, when it comes to learning German it’s easy to learn the word for child, because it’s ‘Kind’ – one straight translation for one word. But when it comes to prepositions, it’s a different matter. There are lots of translations and it’s sometimes difficult to work out which one to use.
This isn’t just a problem for English speakers who are learning German. This is a problem for anybody learning a foreign language.
So in this blog post we will look at this lovely little English word “to” and all the different ways to translate it into German. Enjoy ☺
There you have it, ten different ways to translate ‘to’ into German. And there are more! Depending on the verbs used with it or the context of a sentence there are many more possibilities.
It’s up to you to learn them and get them ‘to a T’. So don’t come to me to ask more question because you didn’t want to learn them.
Es liegt an euch, sie zu lernen und sie haargenau zu lernen. Also kommt nicht zu mir, um mehr Fragen zu stellen, weil ihr sie nicht lernen wolltet.
Who says learning German is boring ☺
