4. "Das ist sehr schade," as my HS German teacher used to say.
"Das tut mir aber Leid"

Translation: "That is very sad. That does me such pain."

Of course she said that dripping with sarcasm when somebody gave a heartrending excuse for not doing the homework.


:rofl: :woohoo: :rofl: :headbang: :toast: :party: :toast: :evilgrin:
