How about this:
"Quest-ce que tu veux?"

What do you want?

Mais c'est "Qu'est-ce que tu veux"

Qu' is short for Quoi=What
est=is
ce=it
que= that
tu= you
veux (comes from vouler)= want

But in French its kinda rude to say "tu" to someone you dont know that well. So better use the polite form and ask:

Excusez-moi, qu'est-ce que vous voulez?

The correct spelling of the german question is: "Haben Sie einen Kugelschreiber?" You say einen, and not eine, for Kugelschreiber is masculine.

That's pretty good for 2 years of German, New Haven. You can definitely make yourself understood with that - though there aren't too many ball-point pens left in this world :wink: . I guess we'll all have to learn the German for rollerball and gel pen.

Tell me, Lovey, was that flat Dutch, or was that just the regular ol', over-inflated variety?
