In preparation for my 8 month European excursion, I wanted to try and learn basic German to make communicating a little bit easier for me when I arrive. I recently purchased a Lonely Planet German phrasebook, and I must say that it has definitely helped me a lot!
Right now I may only know how to say:
- “How are you?”
- “Do you speak English”
- “Please/Thank you,”
- Count to ten (1-10)
but I’d say that’s a pretty decent start. 😛 (I’m just hoping that I’m actually pronouncing the words correctly….)
Wünscht mir Glück! 🙂 … which means ‘Wish me luck!’
