On the way in Germany

On the wayin Germany

If you want to visit Germany, you will need a few words and sentences. To know these words and sentences you have two possibilites:

1) You have a dictionary with you. All the time.
So you can search a word or a sentence, when you need it.
2) You learn the most important words and senteces before your big journey to Germany.
So you can say hello or bye and you show that you are open to new languages and cultures.

If you want to enjoy your trip, the second possibility will be the better solution. So here are some words you will need:
