    How to say "Thank you" and "You're welcome" in German

    How to say "Thank you" and "You're welcome" in German

    Niveau A1 + a great story
    Learning to say thank you and you're welcome in German is really important, as it's part of good manners in German culture and it's also really easy to learn.
    Danke. = Thank you.
    Bitte. = You're welcome.
    But do you hesitate to say them?
    I used to hesitate, too, until I attended a soccer game (Schalke 04 - Glück auf!) and the crowd taught me the importance of "Danke" and "Bitte."

    What do "Bis bald," "Bis später," and "Bis nachher" mean?

    What do "Bis bald," "Bis später," and "Bis nachher" mean?

    How do you tell your friend you're going to see her soon in German?
    There are so many choices, and in German they're not direct translations.
    In fact, so many German learners get this wrong, I use this topic as a barometer to tell me how well someone speaks German.
    Today we'll break down and put together the many forms of:
    Bis bald!
    Bis später!
    Bis nachher!
    Bis Samstag!/Bis um 11 Uhr!
    You'll hear your homework for this week, too, natürlich.
    And here's the extra homework for you studious German learners out there:
