Because we can now understand some basic German and answer some simple questions, we will be asked:

Sprechen Sie Deutsch?    Do you speak German?

Your answer will be: Ja, ein biβchen!    Yes, a bit

You can then go on to explain how you learned German.  For example:

Ich habe bei der Firma gelernt!    I learnt it at work


Wir haben ein paar Deutschstunden gehabt.    We’ve had a few German lessons

If you get a bit stuck, you can try one of these:

Entschuldigung!   Excuse me; sorry

Wie, bitte?  Pardon

Ich verstehe nicht.   I don’t understand

Nicht so schnell, bitte!    Not so fast, please
