comment Plural of Batch
Following the frequently used plural Patches of the English loanword Patch I also vote for Batches if the English word is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, I'd prefer a German word. Linguee shows, that there are some: linguee.com/english-german/search?source=auto&query=batches

comment The translation of the abbreviated sentence “He does”/“He doesn't” in German
@Emanuel I've thought about your comment for some time but really can't see why any of my translations should be "wrong and confusing". The usage of tun emphasizes the action referred to like in Will Peter jetzt wirklich jeden Tag mit dem Fahrrad in die Arbeit fahren? - Ja, das will er tun., which in my opinion some people would say, actually (including me). As you've provided an alternative answer, I will not change mine, because I don't think it's incorrect.

@Sentry Not if tun replaces an action that has mentioned before (as in the above examples). It's bad style if it's used instead of a more exact verb like herstellen, legen, platzieren,... or if used in infinitive constructions to avoid conjugating a verb. Example: Ich tu' morgen kochen. instead of Ich koche morgen.

Could you provide an example for the context? A conversation for example.

comment What would be some good exercises with a language partner for a beginner?
Reading books or watching movies with a language partner? I don't think this is a good idea if you want to make conversation. Or did you mean reading the book before meeting and than talking about it?
