JFK Gaffe


Hallo... The quote from John Kennedy ( Ich bin ein Berliner ) is generally translated as, I am a jelly doughnut. I realize the crowd understood what he meant, but could you please tell me the correct form he should have used. Ich bin Berliner...??? Danke


Hallo, yes "Ich bin Berliner" is correct. More commonly used is "Ich komme aus Berlin" As a woman you would say: "Ich bin Berlinerin". Danke Paul
