Hi all,


I wish to know whether my compositions are correct or not:


1. Der Strand ist weit von dem Hotel.
2. All das Zimmer haben eine Dusche und eine Toilette.
3. Ein Einzelzimmer kostet von siebenundtwanzig bis achtunddreißig.
4. Das Gasthaus ist ganzJährig geöffnet.


No 2 should really mean "All the rooms have their own shower and toilet."
I can't write it in German exactly to mean that.

Vielen Dank,

I have a feeling this is meant to be like a description of a hotel in a travel brochure. That is why I word some sentences slightly differently.

1. Der Strand ist weit von dem Hotel.
This is a grammatically correct sentence. I would suggest, however, to put it differently and would add the approximate distance: Das Hotel ist ca. 1 km vom Strand entfernt.
2. All das Zimmer haben eine Dusche und eine Toilette. - Alle Zimmer haben (verfügen über) Dusche und WC.
3. Ein Einzelzimmer kostet von siebenundtwanzig bis achtunddreißig. - Einzelzimmer kosten zwischen €27 und €28. You should include a currency, (Dollar/Pound/Euro etc.)
4. Das Gasthaus ist ganzJährig geöffnet. - The spelling should be 'ganzjährig'.


No 2 should really mean "All the rooms have their own shower and toilet."
I can't write it in German exactly to mean that.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)
