Default Guten Tag! Ich Heibe Dagmire, and i need a German!!

Guten Tag! Ich Heibe David Baillie. Ich komme aus England.
wie geht es ihnen?

Ok if you haven't figured it out yet I am trying to learn German whilst on my travels and wondered if anyone out there is able to converse with me in german or help me with key words, phrases and sentance structure?

I have a very limmited knowledge of German dispite being born there and having German relitives.
I want to learn German for a few reasons, a view to living there at some stage is one of them, the other is the fact that i listen to a lot of German music.

So, anyone up for it??

First test..
... I know what this is ment to say but can anyone translate it before i get it tattooed on my body (dont want it to be spelt or phrased wrong)
"Das was mich nährt, zerstört mich"

If i dont reply straight away it means i have no internet where i am.....

Please listen to my PODCAST

Ich bin nicht duetsch aber ich will gerne dich helfen, Teh sentence you asked for translates to ''that what nears me disturbs me.''
I'm not great at the grammatical aspects but my orals skills are decent enough I reckon.
So if you have use of my knowledge of German I would be happy to assist

Hmmm....And here I was thinking that the phrase meant "what nourishes me, destroys me".

Actually, I'm quite certain that's how it should be translated. But then again, I never was any good at german. I just like Rammstein...

Nevertheless, if you get stuck, drop me a pm. I might not be the best, but I don't think it's all lost on me....yet.

Ah yes it seems you are right I read it wrong after running it trouhg google translate it seems i mistook it with a form of nähe but like I said grammar isn't my strongest point. and it was the same with zerstört which quite frankly does look like a form of Stört which does mean disturb.

The phrase translates as "That which nourishes me destroys me."

I am a native speaker and a professional translator and proofreader, but I visit Heresy Online only infrequently. But if you want to talk some wargaming stuff in German for practice, just drop me a PM.
