I'm working as a senior frontend developer at Lesara.de, aiming at becoming a git pro and sharpening my skills with Grunt.js, tdd (Jasmine), COMPASS and generally with HTML5/CSS3/JS. Currently I'm reading "Version Control with Git, 2nd Edition" and several other technical books and articles. Oh, and I love to cook, try to find some time to play Minecraft but mostly love my family!

comment Wie kommst du zu? / Wie kommst du in?
A thief might want to know how to get into the school, while the scholar is interested in how to get to the school - I'd say there's no difference between German and English here.

comment What is the difference between Entschuldigen and Entschuldigung?
And generally when you want to say "pardon" in public, you either say "Entschuldigen Sie" or just short "Entschuldigung". Usually you choose the latter version.

comment How do I use numerals ending with “-lei”
Well, all these *lei words stand basically for some sort of collection or type of things - like saying "Wir haben zweierlei Sorten Brot" does not mean "we only have two breads" but "two kinds of bread" - so usually this *lei is used in conjunction with "kind of". And that makes the difference to simply counting things.

comment Welche deutschen Wörter unterscheiden sich nur in der Betonung?
Wobei hier ja leider unpassenderweise gleich einige Beispiele versammelt sind, in denen NICHT NUR die Betonung, sondern auch die Aussprache geändert werden muss, damit sich die Bedeutung ändert (z.B. Collagen) oder Begriffe, die in der deutschen Sprache doch eher selten bis nie verwendet werden (rentier für "Rentner"? Habe ich noch nie zuvor gehört)
