Because most other languages, such as French, for instance, strive to native-fy foreign words. We don't change words, hence "rendez-vous," "fiance(e)," etc.

I didn't do so bad on the quiz - it was a lot simpler than I suspected it would be. In other words, all I had to do was the listing kind of stuff, and none of that fill-in-the-blank conversation stuff.

Oh, and I was right about beginnt.

The thermometer does not draw. It "indicates". i.e. "zeigt"

Nope, you're right about the article which I omitted accidentally. I thought it was "beginnt" though...
Terez is right.

correct

Uhm... no, "sein" = "to be" wich follows no rules in all the languages I know of...

That's not a dropped "e," Sare. Techinically, you're supposed to add an "e," for women and keep it to the single "e," for men.

So, that means we didn't alter it, since the French do the same.

it is.

and I note terez seems to be using the kind of language that would have been used for schubert songs, but that nobody would actually speak. "stehest, zeiget"

uhm.. my 2 pennies.

I'm just doing what the book tells me to. And you're the second person to correct me on something that I already said was a mistake of omission.

Third, I think. At least, if I get what you're talking about (die Schule). I told you, Sarevok told you, and now Anaiya is the third. Back to school for you, it seems.

You pointed it out before I pointed out it was an error of omission.
