The important ones!

I would like a beer. Large please.
Ich hatte gerne ein Bier. Ja, bitte grosse.

I would like the sausage with cabbage.
Ich hatte gerne die Wurst mit Sauerkohl.

Wo ist die WC? Vielen Dank!

Help, my monkey is sick!
Helfen, mein Affe ist krank!

May I borrow your towel? My truck hit a water buffalo.
Darf ich dein Badetuch leihen? Mein Hilux schlug einen Wasserbüffel.
