Translation Day! (T-Day)

Here in Europe it is usually very easy to find a language partner. However, with your language level not sufficiently high, you will probably not be able to chat with your partner (at least in the languages you wish to learn), so this is just a collection of random phrases that I found somewhere in the Internet or took from books in order for you to have something to translate. You can find easier phrases from this page.

Here's how it works: We select 10 phrases from the list below each week. Every person translates each of them int the languages they are learning. In my case, for example, I try to translate them into Russian, and a Russian native speaker (hopefully present) corrects me. Easy, isn't it?

During the corona pandemic, we do it online at, which allows us to create break-out rooms, so that each language gets its own room, although the participants can also move around. There's also a shared Excel sheet which is essentially used as a white board. If you are interested, let me know! I can share the link to the room and the Excel sheet.
