Was sagt man, was sagt man nicht!

Hallo!!!

Today I’ve learned about how to introduce myself… and I realized that it is not that simple!!!

There are 3 ways of telling people your name: ,,Mein Name ist…“, ,,Ich bin…“, ,,Ich heiße…

In all ways we have the main sentence structure (,,der Hauptsatz“), where the verb is always on the second position and the subject in the first.

Let’s take as an example the name Martina Schnell:

Frau Schnell – Martina (Vorname) – Schnell (Familienname) – Martina Schnell

Do you really think that you can combine it with all of those ways of introducing yourself?

The answer is NO!!!

Note:

  • Mein Name ist Frau Schnell. 😦
  • Mein Name ist Martina. 😦
  • Mein Name ist Schnell. 🙂
  • Mein Name ist Martina Schnell. 🙂
  • Ich bin Frau Schnell. 🙂
  • Ich bin Martina. 🙂
  • Ich bin Schnell. 😦
  • Ich bin Martina Schnell. 🙂
  • Ich heiße Frau Schnell. 😦
  • Ich heiße Martina. 🙂
  • Ich heiße Schnell. 🙂
  • Ich heiße Martina Schnell. 🙂

 right way -> 🙂

wrong way -> 😦
