      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. found the word 'saß' in a text I was reading, it translated to 'sat'? But when I congugate sitzen, I get the past tense as gessessen. Can someone explain? Is it in a different tense?
  2. So I'm studying a transcript of a short story told in german on the Auf geht's program, and I'm running into confusion with this specific sentence. So the sentence translates to "One used to take a bus to Neunhaus and from Neunhaus with a train to Nordhorn.", but I don't understand why the second 'noch' (meaning 'still') is in the sentence? Can anyone explain why it's there? Another one is in the phrase "und ich arbeit ja in Nordhorn." What is the 'ja' there for? Is it like a pause, like an 'um' or does it actually mean something in the sentence? One more thing, can someone explain the general usage of 'sich' in sentences? In the transcript, where I'd think she would use 'we', she seems to use 'man sich' instead.
