A couple of questions regarding French & German:

1. Does tant pis have several meanings?
2. Is it ok if we use de rien in all occasions? Are there any situations where je vous en prie is required?
3. Do we really have to say Excusez-moi, de vous deranger mais j'ai un probleme? Will I sound pretentious/overtly polite?
4. In German, what happens to the vowels if there's an umlaut on top if it?

Thanks in advance..

I think someone native French should answer you but I can say that you can also say pardon if you don't want to say excusez-moi.

The vowels are pronounced differently if it's an Umlaut. I really cannot explain it by writing so I searched for something on youtube...(wow those stereotypes in this video crack me up) I think he has more videos for and .

Thanks Marcel..is it safe to say it has a slight "e" sound at the back? Cos it sounds like that from the vids...are you German? Was it weird when you started learning English, with the capital-letter nouns thing and all that?

And another question..bitte and bitte sehr..what's the difference? Does bitte sehr have several meanings as well? Thanks..

P.S. Is Max und Moritz a good place to start learning basic German?

Yes, I'm German.

is more pronounced as in bear, and e (oh well realizing it depends because English and American english and all the accanets make me think that every word that would contain the German sound of or e could be switched and you would still understand but there definitely is a difference) as in halloween maybe? It's hard to explain


Bitte and bittesehr mean the same. It's the same as danke and dankeschn though only bitte is more common, I think bittesehr sounds utterly nice.

OK...I've been watching clips of Wetten, dass..? and they keep saying bittesehr..

I guess the best way is to mimic the pronunciationsI find that and are very similar, from some of the lied I've been listening..

How do you pronounce Joachim as in Joachim Lw?And is Rockpalast still ongoing or are they just showing reruns? Sorry I have too many questions about Germany..

OH great this thread exists!

I was wondering if anyone would want to help me with my italian! (like sending each other emails/messages ) I started home schooled italian courses to get a diploma, and I read a lot, but I'd like to write and converse with someone so I can try to come up with the words spontaneously

And in exchange I can help them with their french!

Would any italian speaker care to translate this sentence?
