  • What is "do you know the way?" in french, german and spanish?

    Best answer: In French, the answer to your question depends on what exactly you mean by "way", what you mean by "you" and also in what context you're saying it. Also, it depends if you are talking formally, neutrally or informally.

    There are 3 ways to ask questions in French. The inversion questions are formal, the "est-ce que questions" are neutral and the intonation questions (bascially an affirmative sentence with a question mark in the end) is informal.

    There are 2 "you" in French. The second person singular "tu" is for when you're talking to one friend, member of your family, person you feel close to, peer (particularly in school), child, animal or god. The second person plural is when you're talking to more than one person, whoever it is, or when you're talking to one person you don't know, someone above you (your boss, the mayor, the president, etc) or someone you want to show some extra respect or distance to.
    Additionally, "you" is often used in English as an impersonal subject when French would actually use "on".

    "Way" in English can mean direction or manner. They are translated into several different things in French depending on the information you want to convey.
    For example for a direction, it could be "direction" for a general orientation, "chemin" for a relatively short path or "route" for a longer path.
    For a manner, it could be translated "façon", "méthode", "mannière" or something else.

    So that makes at least 3*3*6 = 54 possible translations for what you asked. And that's not considering that sometimes, sentences are completely reformulated and do not include any of the words of the original sentence it's translated from.

    I know this is annoying and I'm not doing that to bother your. But I wanted you to understand that whenever you ask for a translation into an other language, particularly from a language as sloppy as English in term of grammar, you need to provide a maximum of context if you want to be sure you get what you are looking for.

  • Is saying "yeah, yeah" considered off hand and impolite?

    When I have daily conversations, I would say "yeah, yeah" in agreement/ acknowledgement. My mum gets offended when I say "yeah, yeah" in our conversations. When I say "yeah, yeah", she mockingly imitates what I just said. Maybe it's the way I say it (my Australian accent is more... show more
    When I have daily conversations, I would say "yeah, yeah" in agreement/ acknowledgement. My mum gets offended when I say "yeah, yeah" in our conversations. When I say "yeah, yeah", she mockingly imitates what I just said. Maybe it's the way I say it (my Australian accent is more twangy than my British-born, Catholic immigrant mother), or the word "yeah" sounds too casual and careless?

  • Anglophones, answer me two doubts about grammar in English, please and thank you very much:?

    1) In English, there are three ways to indicate that something belongs to someone, for example: The ball of Peter. The Peter ball. The Peter's ball. In Portuguese and Spanish, we only use one, following the same example: A bola de Pedro (in Portuguese). El balón de Pedro (in Spanish). Which of the three... show more
    1) In English, there are three ways to indicate that something belongs to someone, for example: The ball of Peter. The Peter ball. The Peter's ball. In Portuguese and Spanish, we only use one, following the same example: A bola de Pedro (in Portuguese). El balón de Pedro (in Spanish). Which of the three forms in English is the most formal and which is the least formal? 2) Why do not you use the neutral article? Here's an example of a sentence in Portuguese, English and Spanish, so you can see what the neutral article is and explain to me why it does not exist in English: Eu não sei o que é essa coisa aí (in Portuguese, where the neutral article is "o"). I don't know what that thing there (in English, where the neutral article don't exist). Yo no sé lo que es esa cosa ahí (in Spanish, where the neutral article is "lo"). And well, for now, that's it!

    I would like to become fluent in a language but I am not sure which one. My native language is English, I tried learning German but the pronounciation was hard and the words were very hard. I also did not adjust well to the different grammar rules. What language has similar rules, and is easy to pronounce / spell? I was thinking French or Italian as it is very similar to English but I am not sure. Thank you!

  • Is Mandarin the easiest Asian language to learn since it is the one with most resources?

    Someone told me Thai is easier than Mandarin but there are also no resources in Thai. For this reason learning Thai is actually more difficult than learning Mandarin

  • Does this sound natural in English?

    Best answer: The sentence structure is fine, but, the logic is a little wonky. How would a test advance a career? Studying, or a course would, and, tests are part of that, but, too many details are left out of this sentence.
