"Wie ist Sonntag fur jemand? Es schneit hier. Ich liebe dieses Schnee aufpaBen. I liebe meines Mausspielzeug, meines Futter und Queenie sehr. Ich bin eine Gluckliche Katze." I forgot to put the translation in. It says: "How is Sunday for everyone? It is snowing her. I love watching the snow. I love my mouse toy, my food and Queenie very much. I am a very lucky cat."
Now obviously, if I looked up each word I could figure it out... But without doing that, what we did first was try to translate it based on what LITTLE we know. We've read that German words are sometimes similar to English ones. I forget the term they used, but like how katze sorta looks like the word "cat", or Je is like "yes" (they are the same, but you know what I mean?) 'yep Katze means cat. I love the word 'Katze.'
SO with Princess' post. Ich bin eine Gluckliche Katze, we figured it said I am a night owl cat? Because Katze=cat, and we think of Mozarts Eina Kleina Muzika (spelling??) is something about night music. 'You are thinking of Eine Kleine NachtMusik ( a litte night music). This is one of my favorite Mozart compostions btw. '
I have dabbled in German for years so I came here to converse and keep practicing. I have no one to speak to on a daily basis so I thought it would be good to speak to beginners and seasoned German speakers in here.
It is good to be here and share our knowledge of the wonderful German language.
Ok, does this make sense?
