Wenn Sie Spanisch kennen, es mir leid tut. Ich habe vor einer langen Zeit diesen Sprachen gelernt. Höffentlich sind die Antwörter (und mein Grammatik hier) richtigen.
Don't worry, the above note is not essential. I would however like to ask people to provide any alternate answers they think should be accepted.

Sehr bon Quiz. Il gefällt à moi.

accept "incredible" for unbelievable, they mean essentially the same thing.

Perhaps "nearly" for presque. In Canadian French (well, some dialects anyways), d'abord has a meaning close to "OK" or "all right then".

Also, US for United States. Good quiz, though I'm annoyed I didn't get Vorurteil, and I'd never heard of Zins before!

Name should read "deutsche Wörter", not "deutschen".

unglaublich can be both an adjective and adverb, not sure about French, maybe accept unbelievably/incredibly . Also, interest in German is usually Interesse, Zins is more about interest earned from a savings account. Although more obvious, if you meant 'interest' as in something found interesting, Interesse is a better word. Good quiz, can see a lot more sequels.

@Ulkomaalainen Thanks, that's one of the things that always got me was the endings on adjectives for plurals with no article, could never remember if there was an n or not.
@RJMurphy I believe intérêt is also the French word for that definition of interest. Also I think French does change adjectives to make them into adverbs, as opposed to German which does not, as I do recall. I am willing to be corrected on both, although I suppose you just did that. I'll think about it today.

I had to look up "Zins" auch. Schade.

Excellent quiz :) I did find that all I needed for almost all the words was the French :) Perhaps try a 'French words in German' quiz, where one has to translate from one foreign (to us Brits/Yanks) language to another? Just a thought :D

Great quiz! Vorurteil... I had no clue
Apr 8th, 2012 at 15:09 GMT
@carbon_rod I think you mean "d'accord", not "d'abord".
Sep 8th, 2012 at 01:04 GMT
presque should be nearly or just about. i think 'ok' in Canadian French is d'accord, not d'abord
