Hi

Need some clarification. “Wie” can be used interchageably to mean how or what?

I always thought  "was" used for what, as in “was ist das?”

Thanks

Hallo sebongela!

 

You are right, “wie” ("how") and “was” ("what") are different and can't be used interchangeably. 

 

Is there a specific sentence that you find confusing? If so, feel free to share it and we can have a look at it together :)

 

Viele Grüße,

Julia
