comment What is the German equivalent for these speech fillers from English: “umm…” and “like”?
+1 I like the "tag" you wrote on the side! If you could slowly add more as you remember them, it'd be fantastic. :D

comment Words Frequency List
How do you measure "most useful"? You're asking for too much and for "too wide". Sorry but I'm voting to close.

comment Am I writing these numerals correctly as words?
If you don't provide the English version, how do we know if it's a correct translation or not? Besides, instead of asking for the whole sentence, what parts are harder for you?

comment What is the intention of the “Leere Flasche nicht verschliessen!” instruction?
I voted to reopen the question because the problem is not the question, but the misunderstanding about the question. The OP is asking about a translation, the OP provides some effort to translate the sentence. The question is not about the return-the-bottle policy, it's about the message on it. So the answers should address the translation and if they want to write a single line (as a bonus) about the policy, no problem.

comment What is the intention of the “Leere Flasche nicht verschliessen!” instruction?
This is not an answer to the question and I wonder how it could get 4 up-votes. Please, reword it so it addresses the translation part of the question; the unnecessary content should be removed, or left as a "bonus"...

comment What's the meaning of “Er hat mit ihr geschäckert”?
I vote to close because when I tried searching "schäckern" I didn't find it as you said, but the spelling was suggested.

comment What are some reading comprehension activities for early language learners?
@ccrockett: There are many questions that deal with reading/learning, have you tried looking at them? Look at the right, under "Related".
