comment Suggestions on preparing for the Zertifikat Deutsch (internationally accepted certificate in German) exam
@TomAu That's the general idea, and is especially true for the letter writing component. For the other components a broad 'basic knowledge' will go far, allowing you to better understand the reading comprehension and what people are saying when trying to listen. When responding yourself, the examiners are more lenient, although it never hurts to only use constructions and words with which you are very comfortable. As an example, I added "-chen" to any word (where appropriate, with change in umlauts if required) of which the genus wasn't immediately clear to me.

As a word, I would suggest 'clarifiable'. Oder verstehe ich was falsch?

comment How to express “silly” in German?
@Cos Perhaps you'd like to clarify what you're trying to say here, as it seems quite offensive and nonesensical to me at the moment.

@pha Interesting, I had no idea, but can somehow understand. Cheers.

@pha Curious! The sarcasm I can understand, but how could it be taken affectionately??
