Hallo Nathalie! Wie geht's? Mir geht's gut. I'm writing a letter to Amazon.de about a mix-up in my order.I need to say the following : "There was a mix-up in my order. I received the wrong book. You sent me the Deutsch 2000 Lehrbuch 2 instead of the Deutsch 2000 Arbeitsbuch 2." Vielen Dank Nathalie! Bis bald! Lorraine

Hi Lorraine, mir geht es auch gut, danke. There are many options how you could describe a mix-up in German. ein Missverständniss - a misunderstanding eine Verwechslung - a mix-up ein Fehler - a mistake Here is a translation of your text: Leider ist Ihnen eine Verwechslung in meiner Bestellung unterlaufen, denn ich habe das falsche Buch zugeschickt bekommen. Anstelle von "Deutsch 2000 Arbeitsbuch 2" haben Sie mir "Deutsch 2000 Lehrbuch 2" geschickt. Let me know if you need any further help with this. Nathalie :D
