gaelic is infinitely easier than german


words all over the place and sentences like jigsaws :olc:
the amount of times i see a german sentence, in which i know every word, but can't make any sense out of is really annoying

Actually, my German is better than my English, since I am German ;)

Can't make head or tails of your ecample though, but that might have to do with the fact that English spelling is highly ambiguous and I'm not sure how what you wrote was actually pronounced. :?

Ein Fass [?] Weizen, bitte. ??

(Fass = barrel, and Weizenbier = a kind of wheat-based beer, bitte=please)

Nise, bheir mi daingneach no àite falaichte orm is neoni as mo dhèidh :cabhag:

So, jetzt schnell weg in die Burg oder an einen versteckten Ort. Neoni ist hinter mir her.

Now I'm off to a castle or a hidden place, neoni is after me

Halò a h-uile a duine. :D Ciamar a tha sibh an-diugh?

Hello everyone. How are you today?

I am well but a little tired from working too hard today.

@ Niall, is it ok to meet up sometime when I'm not working? Please let me know, it would be good to meet another Gàidhlig speaker/learner.

Mar sin leat an-dràsta agus mòran taing. :grian:
