English term or phrase: PLEASE HELP!! MY PROJECT IN SCHOOL!
Please translate this for me "Hi, I'm Ian. This is my poster, In my free time outside of school I like to play video games and go on the computer. The A+ and the Lockers are becuase my goal is to do good in school. The Candy, is becuase my favorite subject is science, and in science you blow stuff up. So, that's where that came from. The Happy hamburger is becuase my family is happy. My favorite type of music is rock, and I come from America. Thanks." Thank you soo much!!
Ian

Explanation:
Hi, Ian -

I have to disagree with the previous answer in several points. My translation is:
Hallo, ich heisse Ian. Dies ist mein Poster. In meiner Freizeit verbringe ich gerne Zeit mit Videospielen und am Computer. Der A+ und die Schliessfächer sind darauf weil ich in der Schule gute Noten bekommen möchte. Die Bonbons sind darauf weil meine Lieblingsfächer die Naturwissenschaften sind und da darf man die Dinge in die Luft jagen. Der "happy" Hamburger ist darauf weil meine Familie glücklich ist. Rock ist meine Lieblingsmusik, und ich komme aus Amerika. Vielen Dank.

For the letters ä, ü and ö, you can substitute ae, ue and oe.

Good luck
Nina

take answer no. 2!


Explanation:
... even though (people are like that) I would also disagree with some things in answer no. 2, in general it sounds more natural to me - and I'm German.

Oh, btw, if I were you, I'd add something like "someone helped me translate this - jemand hat mir bei der Übersetzung geholfen" if you intend to give this to someone who's German - otherwise you'll be flooded with more German and maybe not able to understand it - because after this presentation everyone will think your German is perfect! :-)

Das A +


Explanation:
Hi Ian,
All these suggestions above are wonderful, except for the gender of your grade. It is called "das".
I don't want to spoil things for you, but if this project is for school, your teachers will never believe that you did this on your own. I am a language teacher myself (in the UK), and judging from the contents required in your project, I think you have not been taught German for very long. Have you been taught yet how to say "because" in German? This is quite a difficult grammatical chapter and is usually taught in the latter stages. You'll either have to admit that you got help or you'll have to make up a simpler text in English and ask for help once more.
Good luck anyway, and I hope youll get all the A+s you are trying for! Asking for help on the internet is certainly showing resourceulness!
Best wishes, Anita.
