Basic Phrases and words you need to know of German language

The German language is fascinating and many people over Europe know the language pretty well. If you are in Germany, you will be expected to speak German. So, what do you need to know? 

Learning a few phrases at the beginning is recommended to all those who are learning or studying a new language. And when it's German, it really wouldn't be that bad to know a little more!

Learning German might not be easy but remembering a few of the phrases isn't difficult. Most importantly, they can come in quite handy when you talk with people who speak German. Here is a look at some of the phrases you can use to interact with people in German.

So, if you have been looking for a house, then

"Wo ist das Haus?"

If you wish to look for some beer for self, then it becomes

"Wo ist das Bier?"

And of you’ve been waiting and in search of a station then

 "Wo ist der Bahnhof?"

Another phrase that could be quite handy is "Hast du Hunger?" which when translated in English; would imply "Are you Hungry?"

This phrase is quite significant for you in both personal and professional life.

If you have been wondering what must be the time at a new location or are getting late to reach a destined place, then

"Hast du die Zeit?" in German would help you which implies – Do you what is the time?

Besides there are many instances when you agree with a particular person then say is "Ich stimme zu." There is yet another word which is very useful to ask a question i.e. Why? This need not to in the form of a sentence or a phrase but then

Why in German becomes 'warum'.

"Why should I do this?" will be "Warum sollte ich das machen?"

"Why did you do this?" is "Warum hast du das getan?"

"Why are you here?" becomes "Warum bist du hier?"

Worrying about mistakes is no answer to a simple question and therefore, you can always start with a small guide which could be useful and a better idea than carrying a dictionary along.
